Kindred Mark Frankel goes online to answer important questions


Toronto Sun

ONCE BITTEN: Gay vampires? Not on Kindred: The Embraced -- yet.

Mark Frankel -- who plays Julian Luna in the Aaron Spelling/Fox series about sexy aristocratic bloodsuckers in San Francisco -- told an America Online fan conference that it very much matters what sex a vampire's victim is, and that he (Julian) prefers women's blood, okay?

Frankel deflected an online question about "the homoerotic nature of vampire lore." "If a vampire needs to feed, in my case, the victim would preferably be female," he said. "But vampires must drink blood to survive." In other words, same-sex haemosexuality is okay as a last resort.

The Kindred, of course, are more Melrose Place than Morbius, and sex is #1 on their minds -- this is a Spelling show after all. Purists object, but Frankel demurs: "Why would embracing somebody into the Kindred, which gives them immortality, heightened senses, mental powers, physical powers, prevent them from having intercourse? Wait for episode 8 called 'Cabin in the Woods,' where Caitlin (city editor of the newspaper Julian owns) takes me to get away from the city for a weekend. All will be explained."

And then someone asked the question that's always haunted me. "If you drink the blood of a drunk, do you get inebriated too?"

"I don't think so," Frankel responded. Blow into this tube and we'll see, vampire-boy.
