Foster a Vampire Groupie for "30 Days of Night"
"I'm not a vampire," he said. "I really want to be turned. Like a foot soldier fanatic, a foot soldier who wishes for immortality and dismantles a town for them."
With a character named only The Stranger, Foster just wanted to find any role in the film. "David Slade is a friend of mine and he directed "Hard Candy," which is just a fantastic independent. And I had been a fan of the graphic novel previously so he just said, 'Well, I want you in this movie. I don't know where.' I said, 'Well, that's cool.' I've got a bit of a vampire fetish."
Though he doesn't vamp out himself, Foster saw some of the vampire footage and was impressed. "He showed me some footage that he did of the vampires and I had never seen anything quite like it. It's really remarkable and different and maintains the authenticity and respect to the original material. But I just came in and a full makeup job and became this Cajun drifter, basically a modern Renfield so it was just a fun month of work."
