Like most people right now, that are fans of things vampire related, I am a fan of True Blood. However, I don't have HBO, so I'm behind as I have to buy seasons as they come out on DVD. While everyone else is watching season 3, I'm still trying to catch up on season 2 - which I haven't finished yet. It's not exactly a show that I can watch while my 13 year old is around. LOL
I bring this up now because I know sometimes, authors create characters based on someone they know or an actor/actress in a movie or television show. I'm sort of on the opposite side of the spectrum in that I'll create a character, develop their looks and see a movie or show sometimes later and it hits me over the head - "Hey! That's [insert appropriate character's name
I've had it happen twice so far. One of those instances is Alexander Skarsgård, the actor who plays Eric Northman on True Blood. Now see, I never watched True Blood until last summer when I picked up Season 1 because a friend of mine said it was something right up my alley. But when I did...why hello there Stark. For those that may not know, Stark is the hero in my first book, Flash of Dark.
So, I said twice, right? Who's the other? You'll have to wait until next week. ;^)
