"There's some irony attached to it because Lestat is... he's in there," Anderson laughs alongside Sam Reid in a new interview with Out.

AMC's beloved (and queer AF!) horror period drama Interview with the Vampire has awakened a brand new generation of devoted fans of the franchise, originally created by Anne Rice in the 1970s — and the conversation around the show is even spawning memes online!

One of the most widespread memes is of Louis (played by Jacob Anderson) dramatically hanging up a sign that reads "COLORED ONLY No Whites Allowed" on his business.

Out took the time to ask Anderson, and his costar Sam Reid, about the meme in an interview ahead of the series' season 2 premiere this Sunday.

"I love that," he tells Out. "I love that. Obviously, there's some irony attached to it because Lestat is... he's in there," Anderson laughs before repeating a line from the show. "He ain't white, he's French."

He continued:

"It's amazing. That's like my favorite kind of engagement with [the fans]. It's a different kind of taking something into their heart, when somebody can use it to help other people relate to a feeling or something they want to express. I'm a big proponent of memes and GIFs. I prefer them to words."

Reid then revealed the two sometimes have whole conversations in GIFs, and Anderson reenacted his favorite GIF that he uses from an inside joke between the two.

Interview with the Vampire season 2 premieres this Sunday, May 12 on AMC.
