Who Was That Little Girl?

This is the first (of I hope many) posts where I'll be answering reader questions about the show and/or cast. The first question sent in was from Sebastian where he asks "any idea when the child vampire girl will appear, her name and info?", referring to the shot of a young girl during the previews at the end of the pilot episode.

Well Sebastian, I'm actually glad you brought that little girl up. When I watched the previews at the end and saw her, I knew had I had seen her before but couldn't quite place where. I did some digging and found that her name is Emily Hirst (sometimes accredited as Emily Herst) and realized that I had seen her on a Smallville episode where she played a girl that I believe had the ability to manipulate glass.

You can check out her filmography at IMDB and you'll probably notice that she's played quite a few scifi / fantasy roles for being so young. There you'll also see that her character name on Blade: The Series is Charlotte. I did some further research and found that she has actually signed on for 6 episodes, so she may end up being a regular cast member with a recurring role.

I didn't really want to dig any further and find out about the Charlotte character as it might give away too much about the plot. I'd like to keep as much of this site as spoiler free as possible, with the obvious exception being the episode wrap ups.

I hope you've all enjoyed this first Reader Questions post. If you've got any questions you'd like answered, head on over to the contact form and shoot me an email.

    I was bored and rewatching episode 3 after reading this and realised that Marcus speaks to "Charlotte" on the phone and by the sounds of things Marcus answers to her.

    Yeah, I didn't want to touch on that in my Episode 3 write up because I felt like it might spoil it for some people. If you watch the previews that followed after the first episode and listen to the phone conversation in this last episode, it definitely sounds like Charlotte is either in charge, or at least a very special character that. It will be interesting to see Charlotte as she could potentially be a very old vampire since they don't age. If you've seen Interview With The Vampire, you'll know how intriguing young vampires can be.

    If you haven't seen the latest episode, I'm so mad. I really like the charlotte character. Why did they kill her off? They should of kept her longer on there. I was enjoying her character. Blade should of teamed up with her! Sorry if I'm spoiling it for you, but I'm just so mad, cause she was my favorite character!
