Reginald the Vampire stars Jacob Batalon. A lot of you mostly remember him as Ned. He is Peter Parker’s burly and nerdy best friend from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We now see a different side of him in this TV show. A show where he breaks the mold of a vampire. The media used to portray Vampires as horrifying and grotesque. Then came Anne Rice. Her novels depicted them as attractive hunters who used their seduction to catch their prey. Also there is Twilight, a franchise that gave us sparkling vampires.
As a result of the movie adaptations of her books, which starred gorgeous actors as vampires, the pale undead became more popular than ever. The majority of vampires adhered to the Eurocentric beauty ideals. Therefore, it is a welcome change to have an Asian Vampire play the primary role in a television drama about vampires.
