Still of Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton in Byzantium

Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan discuss their new vampire thriller Byzantium which is directed by Neil Jordan and is based on the play by Moira Buffini. Their characters are 200 years old and are always on the run from those that would kill them. Gemma says they headed to special shops to find just the perfect outfit. Neil says that this is not your normal vampire story at all. None of the tropes, such as garlic or sparkling in the sunlight apply to them. They made a deal with a very evil entity for eternal life. They do have to drink blood to stay young and beautiful. Take a look:
