Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ is one part fantasy/horror, one part imaginative historical biopic and one part period romance. Each of the characters must traverse the various aspects of the story throughout the course of the film. But there is one character that is living in the later two thirds of the formula (with zero interaction with the first) for the vast majority of the tale: Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Mary Todd Lincoln.
We had the opportunity to speak with the actress recently about essentially being in a period drama while her cast mates made an action film, playing a 19th century Hillary Clinton and what makes her vampires the vampiriest.
