Alpha-Vampiress Jessica Chastain

Actress Jessica Chastain wasn't always so happy about becoming a vampire. That devil eyes, bat ears and fangs could be so feminine never even entered her thoughts. Her carefully crafted public persona depended so much on her bright and lively appearance they were inextricably entwined and the physical characteristics of a night hunting animal hardly portrayed the image of an ingenue and Hollywood starlet she so desperately strived for almost her entire life. 

Unfortunately her vampire-turning happened in a manner unbecoming of her dignified persona. She was walking along the Hudson River in Manhattan when a drunken frat boy attacked her near the jogging path and when he was done he pushed her over the railing into the river thinking she was dead. She found herself washed up 3 days later next to a playground near the Lincoln Tunnel in Weehawken, New Jersey. Her first victim was a homeless man who made fun of her wet clothes and the fact she was wearing one flip-flop.

Despite her ignominious start Jessica became a well-respected actress with several highly acclaimed movies to her credit. She received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in 2012 and was understandably named as one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people of the world! But little is known of her personal life except for what she carefully doles out to the public. Her appearance, style, and career have all been meticulously crafted and her Hollywood star trajectory took off soon after her vampirization. That was enough for her to embrace the life of being un-dead.

Jessica is still an avowed vegan except for when she sucks the blood of unwilling human victims. Though normally wholly repellent to her being it's an ordeal she enthusiastically enjoys for both the sport and what it delivers her career. It serves her canny existence to selectively develop an army of vampire minions able and willing to serve her earthly lust for power and fame. Besides turning influential members of Hollywood's power elite, she's spent a significant amount of personal time with a certain wife of a certain actor and member of the Church of Scientology, leading some to speculate theirs a relationship more than platonic.

Personally, Jessica has nonetheless expressed regrets about becoming a vampire. While still human, Jessica demonstrated all the characteristics of a post-feminist alpha-female with superior abilities and achievements. She understandably feels ambivalent about her un-dead nature even though it grants her powers beyond her dreams including immortality as a young, famous and beautiful woman. But that glory does not come without a price because soon after returning to the isle of Manhattan as a fledgling vampiress she was compelled to seek out the frat boy-vampire to demonstrate her unflailing submission to him. Unfortunately, this usually entails visits to his friend's bachelor parties along with a portable dancing pole, a midget and a unique knowledge of animal husbandry.
