Is The First Kill Star Actress Imani Lesbian IRL?
As of now, it’s already established that First Kill is a lesbian vampire show. However, many people don’t know if the actresses who play the roles, especially First Kill star Imani Lesbian, are lesbians in real life. While we will talk about that down in the subheading, let’s first talk briefly about the show’s plot and Imani’s opinions on the show, and the character she plays.
Based on a short story by V.E. Schwab, First Kill follows a teenage vampire, Juliette Fairmont (played by The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It star Sarah Catherine Hook), who sets her sights on Calliope Burns (played by Imani Lewis) to make her ‘first kill’ in order to take a rightful place in her powerful vampire family. Little does Juliette realize that Calliope is a vampire hunter and comes from a family of powerful, celebrated slayers. On Calliope’s part, she is also required to make her ‘first kill’ and chooses Calliope as that person. Things become complicated when the two people who are supposed to kill each other fall for each other.
Talking with the NY Post recently, Imani expressed her excitement for the show. “I immediately fell in love with the story of the show in general,” she told. “I love strong female characters, I love powerful calculated confident characters, and for her to be from a family of monster hunters, I was like, ‘I have to be part of it.'”
Imani also talked a little about her character Calliope in the show and expressed how lucky she fails to have grabbed the role. “I resonate with Calliope in so many different ways. I tried to perform her from a place of strength, strategy, diligence.”
Reportedly, Imani also performed many stunts on her own. To the NY Post, she revealed that she took many kickboxing lessons in preparing for her role.
Now coming to the main subject that is if Imani Lewis is lesbian IRL, we do not have any clarification on her sexuality yet. However, what we can say for sure is that her co-star Sarah Catherine Hook is not a lesbian. Reportedly, Sarah was dating a man named Philip Laskaris in 2022.
