This is something that Liz said:

🩸”First Kill was super fun. I play a 500-year-old vampire named Margo.
She is the very definition of a formidable woman and has this amazing husband named Sebastian, played by Will Swenson, who is a Broadway actor. So, there are the vampires and the hunters and it’s a bit like Romeo and Juliet, but it’s more Juliet and Juliet. It’s the two families that are pitted against each other. Aubin Wise is kind of my counterpart. She is in Hamilton right now on Broadway and she brought it and Will brought it. Even just being around these amazing actors was an absolute pleasure. It was so much fun”🩸

 

I cannot say this enough… How much I am happy to see Liz as a vampire. 🧛🏼‍♀️ A dream coming true. ❤️

I cannot wai to see her fangs, playing the mom of Elinor and Juliette, being in love with her husband and the fights with her counterpart. This is going to be so much fun! 💃 Who is ready?
