Seems like the phrase "Opposites attract" makes absolute sense when it comes to 'First Kill'. The upcoming Netflix fantasy series will see Sarah Catherine Hook and Imani Lewis play a vampire and a monster hunter who fall for each other. 

Directed by Jet Wilkinson, the Netflix lesbian vampire drama's official synopsis reads, "When it's time for teenage vampire Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook) to make her first kill so she can take her place among a powerful vampire family, she sets her sights on a new girl in town named Calliope (Imani Lewis). But much to Juliette's surprise, Calliope is a vampire hunter from a family of celebrated slayers. Both find that the other won't be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for." Starring alongside Hook and Lewis in a pivotal role is Elizabeth Mitchell, who will be seen as Margot, the matriarch of the Fairmont vampire family. Read on to know more about Mitchell and how she ended up becoming a part of 'First Kill.'
