Quick! Name something Matthew Settle (Rufus) has in common with teenage girls. Besides Gossip Girl. Stumped? Here it is: Turns out Matthew also swoons over creatures of the night. And he's not the only one. He and Connor Paolo (Eric) were both at the premiere of True Blood and gushing over their love of bloodsuckers.
“I like vampire shows,” Matthew said. “The teeth, blood, sucking blood and living forever at someone else’s expense. I’m kidding. I guess we all have been intrigued by them because they can fly. They can turn into bats, but they never do that anymore. It’s not fashionable. I haven’t seen that since Bugs Bunny.”
As for Connor, he's got a True Blood crush. “I love the girl who played Jason’s girlfriend in the first season,” the Gossip Girl star says. “They were killing vampires and selling the blood because they were getting high. She’s great. I loved her character.”
We'd been wondering what plotlines Rufus and Eric would get next year, now that Rufus and Lily's marriage is stable. Perhaps they'll become bloodsuckers?
