Jose Leitao and Ryan Danhauser interview Nicholas Vince, who played the Chatterer Cenobite in Hellraiser, Hellbound: Hellraiser II, and Kinski in Clive Barker’s Nightbreed. He was also a writer for Marvel’s Nightbreed and Hellraiser comics in the 90s, and he contributed for several Magazines like Fear, Skeleton Crew and Crisis, writing several beautiful short stories and doing a series of interviews titled “The Lugagge in the Crypt” with several Artists and writers. He also wrote the comic series “Warheads” and “Mortigan Goth“. In 2009 his story Devil’s Design was published in the Hellbound Hearts anthology.
Watch out for an upcoming book by Mr. Vince called “WHAT MONSTERS DO”, still being written. We can’t wait for it to come out!
We thank him immensely for this opportunity to chat with him a little while and we hope to do so again in a future opportunity to promote his upcoming projects.

1. Nicko Vince as Kinski. From The Nightbreed Chronicles :”It was Saint-Victor’s Dissolution (a cure for the psychosis of appearance) that transformed Leon Kinski from Natural to Breed. In pursuit of a woman who rejected his looks, Kinski used Saint-Victor’s compound, which – so rumour went – allowed the user to reconfigure his features as imagination willed. In the fugue state the drug induced, however, he wandered out to gaze at the crescent moon, and it was that image his softening features took as inspiration. He attempted suicide by throwing himself into the Seine. He claims he drowned there, and rose to the surface the following night, when the moon rose. This is most likely nonsense. The Seine simply washed him up alive. He was thereafter cleansed of all desire, except for the moon, in the faces of which, he will say, he can see al his lusts made chilly perfection.” – Photo by Murray Close.
