A quick Alex O'Loughlin interview with MSN UK

Alex O'Loughlin did a quick interview with MSN UK. He spoke to them at the Paley Center for Media's Moonlight event. Thank goodness our show's producers were smart enough to keep Alex when they recast all the other characters. He is definitely the man you want as the lead for your tv show!

Vampires out in Beverly Hills

Vampires ruled the night in Beverly Hills as fans got to meet the stars of US television show Moonlight.

And Alex O'Loughlin, who plays a vampire turned private investigator, was the man everyone wanted to see.

The Australian brought his girlfriend, former Neighbours star Holly Valance, to the Q&A held at the Paley Television Centre, where he revealed all about the joys of playing blood sucker Mick St John - a modern vampire with a heart.

"He does a lot of good things and he saves a lot of people, but I think he's still an animal. He still has this daily need for blood and he has to really hold himself back from being bad, there's always a tension," the actor said.

Alex revealed it had been a rocky road getting the show - which also stars British actress Sophia Myles - to air.

He said: "I didn't know what was going to happen because they fired everyone and then they told me I still had a job, then they changed the name of the show and then they said they weren't sure what they were going to do with it. I wasn't expecting anything but it certainly has changed, it's been a really exciting journey to watch it unfold and be a part of the process."

Moonlight currently airs in the UK on LIVING on Tuesdays at 10pm.

Wow Kandye... Lots and lots of new stuff. All these interviews etc... our cast are really working hard to get Moonlight out there. Lets hope this does the trick and we get the attention we need for season 2. I am actually beginning to feel confidant about it...
