Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles

Factual error: Paris was surrounded by the German army on September 20th 1870, until January 1871 due to the aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War. This was an obvious danger after the defeat of the French army on September 2nd. No-one in Paris, however, seems to notice. (01:10:25)

Continuity mistake: When Lestat slices the whore's wrist at the hotel, blood drips everywhere on the couch, but when she stands up in the next shot, there is no blood anywhere. (01:56:12)

Trivia: At 5'7, Tom Cruise was shorter than Lestat de Lioncourt (the character he played), who towered over the characters in the book version. Cruise was placed on elevated platforms to emphasize Lestat's height difference from the other vampires.

Question: This is a strange question, but how does Rice pronounce her hero's name? In the movie I hear two pronunciations: one like the ending in "cat" and one that sounds more like the end of "what." Also, Lestat is French, so shouldn't the final "t" be silent?

Answer: Rice pronounces it something like "Luh-stot", although even she wavers occasionally. Standard French convention would certainly suggest that the final 't' should be a silent one, but, as Lestat would be deeply insulted to be considered conventional, it's highly likely that he wouldn't choose to go along with that.
