Mark Proksch, who plays Colin (better known as the “energy vampire”) on FX’s upcoming new series, What We Do In The Shadows, spoke in a Q&A session at the world premiere of the show’s first episode at SXSW on Friday night. When asked what he drew on for his performance as Colin, he had the crowd cracking up as he described how he drew upon his own boring self.

“I know you look at this bald guy in a popped collar and you think to yourself, there’s a David Bowie type, or a Trent Reznor type,” Proksch said. “But I’m actually pretty boring, so I drew on my own life a lot. And I use to temp for a long time, and we had a lot of really boring people at my office.”
