Many people are judging Townsend without looking at all into anything that means something when it comes to a character adaptation. Let me write a review of Townsend as Lestat and then of Tom Cruise for the same version of the character.
Like everyoen else who have read the books, I see the Queen of the Damned film's version of Lestat is almost totally out-of-character but I personally hold only the script writers' and possibly the director and whoever really had any say on it, responssible.
Not the actor; not Stuart Townsend, at all - because he could not possibly have changed the character...
