Another interview with Dominic and his co-stars for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is online. I have found some problems with the sound the only solution I’ve found is to sign in and turn the volume up loud and use head/earphones. I’ve found 2 versions (they are both the same except one is more close up) so maybe one is better for you.

The following interview was originally done in Swedish I’ve done my best to translate it for you using an online translator apologise for any mistakes.

Dominic Cooper, who is best known for Mamma Mia!, The Duchess, An Education and My Week With Marilyn, is now in fantasy thriller Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

In the film, which is directed by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Night Watch, Day Watch), we meet a world in which President Abraham Lincoln not only fighting against slavery but also is a passionate Vampire Hunter with a view to once and for all crush the blood creatures.

Had you read the book of Seth Grahame-Smith before you began to work with the movie?
– Yes, I read the book and liked it. This is a different vampire film, which attracted my interest. Seth has a wild imagination that makes the story is so exciting and odd.
Who is the Vampire you play?
– He is called Henry Sturgess a vampire in which is in constant mental conflict with himself. His life is entirely focused on a case, to take revenge for the vampire that killed his love of his life.
Did you do any research before the movie?
– I did research on what I thought was necessary for me to know about Abraham Lincoln. I did not learn very much about him in school, he is not on our syllabus in the UK where I grew up.
You play Abraham Lincoln’s mentor. What was it like to work with Benjamin Walker, who plays Lincoln?
– Ben is a terrific actor, we had incredible fun. He maintained its good humour despite the fact that he had to get up at 3 in the morning and sit in make up for four hours to become an aged Abraham Lincoln. He did this because he had a great passion for the project.
There is a lot on film and television at the moment. Do you like vampire films?
– No, I have not cottoned on the whole trend to see all the vampire films and TV series which is popular now. When I was growing up was The Lost Boys one of my favourite films and the absolute is a sovereign vampire film which is still up to scratch!

Dominic Cooper may be raving about Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter now, but he wasn’t so keen on his new movie when he first read the script.


The 34-year-old actor confesses to Celebuzz that he nearly missed out on the role of Henry Sturgess, Abraham Lincoln’s (Benjamin Walker) vampire-hunting mentor, because he thought the concept was far too ridiculous.


“I’m pathetic in that I didn’t realize the comedy of it,” he told us. “I missed it immediately. I’m really disappointed in myself having done that.”


What made Cooper change his mind?


“I mentioned it to someone at work and they said, ‘Oh no, that’s a really great book,’” he recalled. “At that point, I scrambled back and read the script, and thought what an idiot I was.”


“Your immediate reaction is so dependent on your frame of mind. I was probably in a particularly bad mood that day,” he added.


In vein of his Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter confession, Cooper also reveals to Celebuzz his embarrassing debut an actor: a condom commercial.


“It was pretty much one of my first jobs,” he told us, laughing. “It was a really creative director at the time. I was chased down the street by people dressed in ridiculous outfits as huge sperm.”

On July 4, the secret part of Lincoln’s life and the secret part of the battle he fought will be revealed in cinemas nationwide in the blood-curling, non-stop action thriller “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” starring Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Rufus Sewell.


Every good vampire slayer needs a mentor (even Buffy). For Lincoln, that turns out to be Henry Sturgess, a 500-year-old vampire who has tired of his peers’ bloodlust and attitude towards humanity. For that role, the filmmakers chose Dominic Cooper, who saw his career enjoy a boost with the likes of “Mamma Mia” and and “An Education” and won plenty of acclaim for “The Devil’s Double.” But Cooper wasn’t quite sold on the idea when he was first handed the script. “I said, ‘I’m not reading that. Goodbye!’ It sounded like a bit of a joke. I mentioned to someone else that had read the book and they said the book was brilliant and I thought, ‘this is ridiculous,’ and then… when I started reading it… We never knew about him as a man. In my studies in England, I loved finding out about him, what incredible man he was and what he achieved in his life. Then I read the book and the script at the same time. The book is so rich with ideas and concepts and I was wondering which one they were going to pick for the movie, how they were going to condense it to a film. I thought that the original screenplay picked all the really interesting dynamics of the characters and I immediately wanted to be part of it. Because it didn’t take itself too seriously, it wasn’t a serious biographical piece, but at the same time you learned a lot from it. And I also thought that Timur has an incredible vision and I love the way he shoots action sequences. He shoots action like no one else. So I get that plus Tim Burton’s crazy imagination.”
