Stephen Dorff: Hello!
Question: Is there any nudity in the film?
Stephen Dorff: Umm...not really...it's not a love story, it's a bloody vampire movie.
Question: Stephen, when you threw the little girl in the street in the movie, did she break any bones?
Stephen Dorff: I didn't really throw her, and the stunt girl took the fall on pads. Nobody got hurt.
Question: Did you ever get hurt, Stephen?
Stephen Dorff: You get a little scratched up, but really no pain.
Question: Was there any part of the movie that was hard to act?
Stephen Dorff: I felt a little silly holding my arms out feeling the Gods, it felt strange acting with nothing.
Question: Did the director give you a vision of what it would look like?
Stephen Dorff: I knew the boundaries. I didn't want to go over the top.
Question: Do you believe in vampires?
Stephen Dorff: I believe in the intrigue. I'd like to think there are vampires, it's mystical.
Question: Was any of the makeup uncomfortable? Did you have to train to fight?
Stephen Dorff: The end sequence is the one where I had the most to learn. I had to learn the martial arts a bit. Wesley is the martial arts person, and I had to learn to keep up with him.
Question: I love the song "Come To Me," any more plans to write songs?
Stephen Dorff: I didn't write that song with my brother, but it's funny I am writing one with him now.
Question: What was the most challenging part of Frost?
Stephen Dorff: I tried to make him conversational. I tried to make him not only intense but I wanted to make him human too. I couldn't make him too good though, he was the villain.
Question: Were you a fan of the comic book series?
Stephen Dorff: I didn't even know it was a comic book, I'm not a comic book reader, although he does have a cult following.
Question: You were the best thing of Blade. What is next for you?
Stephen Dorff: I just finished a movie with Robert DeNiro called Entrophy, by Phil Jonou.
Question: What was the coolest thing you got to wear in the film?
Stephen Dorff: I kind of just liked that leather coat. It's a 90s sort of thing. I wish I had gotten to wear it more.
Question: What was it like working with all that blood? What is it made of?
Stephen Dorff: It was ediblebut it was sticky. It was made of a sugary substance.
Question: Did you guys ever play with the blood?
Stephen Dorff: No, some people broke out in rashes from it during the shower scene.
Question: How did you prepare for this role?
Stephen Dorff: I just put the teeth on and picked the moments.
Question: What was it like working with the actors? Was it fun?
Stephen Dorff: It was like an adventure everyday, it was more interesting to watch. A lot more time and work involved. It's not real thought-out. It was a great group of people to work with.
Question: Who does your hair?
Stephen Dorff: Chris did it. He created the "Friends" styles.
Question: What was it like to work with Snipes, the best actor ever?
Stephen Dorff: It was a great experience, it is great to work with someone who knows what they are doing. He takes incredible chances.
Question: What has been your favorite role?
Stephen Dorff: I've kind of been happy with all of the choices I've made"The Power of One" was a movie I'll never forget. I think SFW was ahead of its time.
Question: Any plans to direct in the future?
Stephen Dorff: Definitely. I like working with directors who allow you to use your own vision, and I think it would be great.
Question: Was Steve Norrington good with actors?
Stephen Dorff: He put my vision on screen, he was incredible. We were in complete sync. I'd love to do another movie with him.
Question: Did you have to buff up for this?
