Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994) Poster

Kirsten Dunst: Claudia



  • Claudia : Who will take care of me, my love, my dark angel, when you are gone?

  • Lestat : Listen, Louis. There's life in these old hands still. Not quite Furioso. Moderato? Cantabile, perhaps.

    Claudia : How can it be?

    Lestat : Ask the alligator. His blood helped. Then on a diet of the blood of snakes, toads, and all the putrid life of the Mississippi, slowly, Lestat became something like himself again. Claudia... You've been a very, very, naughty little girl.

  • Louis : Vampires pretending to be humans, pretending to be vampires.

    Claudia : How avant-garde.

  • Louis : Do you think I would let them harm you?

    Claudia : No, you would not, Louis. Danger holds you to me.

    Louis : Love holds you to me.

  • Claudia : Goodnight sweet prince, may flights of devils wing you to your rest.

  • Claudia : Where's mama?

    Lestat : Mama... mama has gone to heaven, Chérie, like that sweet lady right there. They all go to heaven.

    Louis : All but us.

    Lestat : Shh. Do you want to frighten our little daughter?

    Claudia : I'm not your daughter.

    Lestat : Oh, yes, you are. You're mine and Louis' daughter now. You see, Louis was going to leave us, he was going to go away, but now he's not. Now, he's going to stay and make you happy.

    Claudia : Louis.

    Louis : You fiend.

    Lestat : One happy family.

  • Claudia : Locked together in hatred. But I can't hate you, Louis. Louis, my love, I was mortal till you gave me your immortal kiss. You became my mother, and my father, and so I'm yours forever. But now it's time to end it, Louis. Now it's time to leave him.

  • Claudia : You... fed on me.

    Louis : Yes. And he found me with you, and he cut his wrist and fed you from it, and you were a vampire and have been every night thereafter.

    Claudia : You both did it.

    Louis : [crying]  I took your life... He gave you another one.

    Claudia : And here it is, and I hate you both.

  • Louis : Bear me no ill will, my love, we are now even.

    Claudia : What do you mean?

    Louis : What died in that room was not that woman. What has died is the last breath in me that was human.

    Claudia : Yes, Father. At last we are even.

  • Louis : You see that old woman? That will never happen to you. You will never grow old, and you will never die.

    Claudia : And it means something else too, doesn't it? I shall never ever grow up.

  • Claudia : Which one of you did it? One of you did it! Which on of you made me the way I am?

    Lestat : What you are? A vampire gone insane that pollutes its own bed?

    Claudia : And if I cut my hair again?

    Lestat : It will grow back again.

    Claudia : But it wasn't always so. I had a mother once, and Louis, he had a wife. He was mortal the same as she and so was I.

    Louis : Claudia!

    Claudia : You made us what we are, didn't you?

    Lestat : Stop her, Louis.

    Claudia : Did you do it to me?

    [slashes Lestat's face, and it heals immediately] 

    Claudia : How did you do it?

    Lestat : Why should I tell you? It's in my power.

    Claudia : Why yours alone? Tell me how it was done.

    Lestat : Be glad I made you what you are. You'd be dead now if I hadn't, just like that damned corpse. Now, get rid of it!

    Claudia : You get rid of it.

  • Lestat : Mon dieu, what melancholy nonsense. I swear you grow more like Louis each day. Soon you'll be eating rats!

    Claudia : Rats? When did you eat rats, Louis?

    Louis : It was a long, long time ago. Before you were born, and I don't recommend them.

  • Claudia : Madeleine, Louis is shy.

    Madeleine : Drink.

    Claudia : Do it, Louis, because I cannot, I haven't the strength. You saw to that when you made me.

    Louis : You haven't the vaguest conception under God what you ask.

    Madeleine : Au contraire, Monsieur, I have.

    Claudia : You have found your new companion, Louis. You will make me mine.

  • Claudia : It's time we were on our way. I'm hungry, and the city awaits.

  • Claudia : Louis, what's happening to her?

    Louis : She is dying. It happened to you, too, but you were too young to remember.

  • Lestat : Claudia... Claudia. Claudia! What have you done?

    Claudia : What you told me to do!

    Louis : Leave a corpse here to rot?

    Claudia : I wanted her. I wanted to be her!

  • Lestat : [after Claudia kills the piano teacher]  Claudia, what have we told you?

    Claudia : Never in the house.

  • Claudia : I came to make peace with you, even though you are the father of lies.

  • [watching a nude prostitute] 

    Lestat : Now that is pure Creole. Trust Claudia to have found her. What, don't you want her?

    Claudia : I want to be her.

  • Lestat : Enough! Enough! Stop!

    Claudia : I want some more.

  • Louis : Claudia, don't!

    Claudia : [Beginning to cut her hair]  Why not? Can't I change, like everybody else?

  • Claudia : Do you know what his soul said to me, without saying a word? 'Let him go', he said. 'Let him go'.

  • Claudia : I promise I'll get rid of the bodies.
