We know that the vampires don’t age. They stay at a certain age and they look that age forever. The big question is about the age of the mind and at the time of being turned how will ‘mind’ age affect each vampires behaviour as time goes by. The main question for this always arises from Moonlight, Episode 5 – Arrested Development , where we have a teenage vampire who are killing woman – mainly prostitutes it seem.
To be stuck with raging hormones that you don’t know what to do with, for eternity, must be hard.
Our young vampire seems to kill his “potential” love interests, because of differences in what they want from each other – or maybe because of his hate for the prostitute that turned him. The only thing that I can think of as being worse than to be a teenager for eternity, would be to be menopausal for eternity 😀 Not that I know what it feels like to be menopausal -#notthereyet 😛
The main question is – Up until what age will the body have such an influence on you that it will affect you behaviour so much? Most often the theory would be that as we age, we acquire wisdom. But how does a vampires body being turned at a certain age, mess with this ‘wisdom’?
This episode suggests the theory that a child will always have a child’s mentality, just as a teenager will always have a teenage mentality. But how does our body’s age affect us once we become adults? Will a 25-year-old act the same way as a 30-year-old or a 40-year-old?
(Okay I admit, this post it is actually mostly about the pretty……but it would be interesting to hear what others have to say about the age thing. 😛 )
The workload and the pressure are quite challenging. I’ve come to the conclusion that I will never work harder than this as an actor – unless I’m doing a war film for Oliver Stone somewhere in the Vietnamese jungle, it’s boot camp and he’s making me sleep in the trees and not allowing me to eat at all.
