"as Lafayette Reynolds Gosh golly do I love this guy. Basically the best gay guy on televeision (Yes, better than Chris Colfer). Lafayette always cracks me up, but his character has become much darker and much more supernatural."

"as Lafayette Reynolds I am glad they have kept him on the show instead of killing him off on the 1st season like originally planned. He is probably one of the most eccentric and entertaining characters in this series. Even though he isn't a vampire he sparkles much better than Twilight "vampires" lol."
