Bogosian opened up about the details of the show’s storyline, as his character had previously unsuccessfully attempted to interview Louis as a rookie journalist.
“The script is very clear that it’s some 40 years later, and Daniel is no longer the boy who was a rookie journalist, just getting started, making tapes of this vampire interview,” Bogosian said. “Now he has a second chance. He’s been very successful, he’s actually on the wrong side of his career, and this is his last chance to grab the brass ring. It’s dangerous, but he wants to get this story.
He continued: “He’s a lot more cunning than he was when he was a kid. He won’t let Louis lie to him. He will understand the story. He is afraid, of course he is afraid. And he’s trying to scare me.
“There is also temptation. He’s still sitting there. He says, “I can make you one of us if you want”, and it’s always there as a temptation. It’s very complex and it was wonderful to play that.

Executive producer Mark Johnson said hopes were high that the series would lead to more content from the book, as well as Rice’s other material.
“The books are so much fun and they’re so different,” Johnson said. “Sometimes it’s hard to believe they’re connected, but they are. While one might be about vampires and the other about witches and the other about God knows what, they’re all connected.
“You’ll tell us if it’s going to be a franchise or not, but I believe that world, the world of Anne Rice, is going to continue for a while on AMC.”
