Sarah Catherine Hook and Imani Lewis Talk Their New Netflix Series, ‘First Kill’

A vampire and a vampire hunter falling in love? Consider us obsessed! Sarah Catherine Hook and Imani Lewis star as Juliette Fairmont and Calliope Burns in First Kill. All eight episodes of season 1 are now streaming on Netflix.


When it’s time for teenage vampire Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook) to make her first kill so she can take her place among a powerful vampire family, she sets her sights on a new girl in town named Calliope (Imani Lewis). But much to Juliette’s surprise, Calliope is a vampire hunter from a family of celebrated slayers. Both find that the other won’t be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for.

Sarah Catherine Hook can be seen in The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, Impeachment: American Crime Story, NOS4A2, and Monsterland.

Imani Lewis’ notable credits include Eighth Grade, The Get Down, Star, Premature, The Forty-Year-Old Version, Vampires vs. the Bronx, and Hightown.


We discussed what was most important to them when bringing this love story to life, representation, what they hope audiences watching take away from the show, their favorite romance tropes, and more!
