The series stars Christina Cox as a private investigator who falls for a vampire. But while the show IS on Lifetime, she wont let her character Vicki get into any typical Lifetime situations.
Says Cox: Dont expect a demon bride on the run from an abusive hunchback husband or a pregnant teen elf. Although anything goes when vampires and mythological creatures are concerned.
Cox admits falling for a vampire on the show does fit right into the Lifetime niche because the bloodsuckers tend to have addictive personalities like many characters on other Lifetime shows.
As she puts it, Once you go vampire, its hard to go back. You have to act like youre dating an addict, and you either have to accept them or move on.
That means Vicki must deal with jealousy issues as well, since her vampire must go elsewhere to satisfy his blood lust.
She explains: He doesnt touch her at all, but has other people he feeds off. During filming, I learned that vampires can feed off a person and not kill them.
She continues: That means you can be a vampires bitch for a long time but Vicki aint NOBODYS bitch.
Blood Ties premieres Sunday (Mar. 11) on Lifetime.
