August 5th, 2014 Interview Author: Kelly Comments Off

DA MAN: Riley, how are you doing? Congrats on joining the cast of “True Blood.” How did the role come about?

Riley Smith: Hey, thanks very much! Well the role came about extremely quickly. I was actually shooting the pilot for “Deliverance Creek” in Austin, and the show shares the same casting team as “True Blood.” So they called me in for this new vampire role of Keith and helped make it all possible. I met with the “True Blood” producers on a Thursday morning and received a call saying that the role was mine before I’d even got back to my house after the meeting. Twelve hours later, I was in a wardrobe fitting!

DA: Did the fact that you’re a musician help you adapt to the character of “Keith,” who is a rock drummer in the show?

RS: I love playing musicians, simply because music is a great hobby of mine. However, though Keith is a drummer in the show, there are very few scenes with him actually playing drums. As such, I didn’t really have to do much to prepare in that respect!

DA: So what’s challenging about playing Keith?

RS: Well, “fanging out” took some time to get used to. You have to get comfortable speaking with them in and basically learn how to not speak with a lisp. Otherwise, I really enjoyed playing him.

DA: How do you think the viewers can relate to Keith?

RS: He’s a hopeless romantic. I think everyone has that in them somewhere and can relate to him in that way, maybe also because he seems more human than some of the other vamps.
