Bit of trivia- the actress who plays that reporter in Moonlight, was also in the first season of Angel, as a police officer.
Sorry, but actually the actress who played Kate Lockley on Angel was Elisabeth Rohm. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0737533/
The actress who played Beth Turner on Twilight was
Sophia Miles.....and she was also in the movie Underworld. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0617009/
Just had to clear that up.....If you have read my other posts, then you know I tend to watch TOO much tv and it was bugging me cause I didnt remember that the two characters were played by the same actress, so I looked it up
And I have read Anne Rice, Loved Buffy/Angel and Moonlight. I like them all for being their own mythical twist on vampires.
Not one of them is exactly the same. SM's vamps are just another version of this mythical being.
I bought the Vampire diaries and plan on reading it as soon as I can get to it, but since I have been buying books like a shopping junkie and reading like nothing lately, (cause I'm on the computer all the time when I'm not working) I dont have an exact ETR(estimated time of reading) on when.
