NARRATOR: Nicolas Cage is one of
the most colorful actors in Hollywood, but Nic’s
flair for the dramatic goes well beyond acting. Welcome to New Orleans. “Biography” presents
Nicolas Cage. NICOLAS CAGE: New
Orleans is a very important place in
my life, and I’ve been going there for decades. When I’m in New Orleans, I
feel both blessed and cursed. NARRATOR: Nic first went
down to the Big Easy to film 1990’s “Wild at Heart”. He fell in love with
the city and would go on to make 12 more movies
in and around New Orleans. Then in 2007 he decided to
put down some roots there. But in true Nicolas
Cage fashion, he didn’t just buy any house. He bought one of the
most notorious houses in New Orleans,
LaLaurie Mansion, which was once owned
by serial killer Madame Delphine LaLaurie. Nic no longer owns that
house, but he still owns property in the city. That’s the pyramid-shaped
tomb in the famous St. Louis Cemetery No 1. Cage will have a
very interesting neighbor in this cemetery. Voodoo queen Marie Laveau
is also buried there. Nic’s fascination with the
spooky side of New Orleans and the discovery of a
19th-century photograph have led to an
internet conspiracy that he’s actually a vampire. I have been told
about that, yeah, and I have gotten out
of bed in the morning and looked in the mirror just
to make sure I was still there, and I was. So that would probably
end those rumors because I’m told that vampires
don’t have reflections. Why don’t we just
keep it a mystery? It might be a lot
more fun for everybody if I just say it’s possible. NARRATOR: Vampire
or not, Nicolas Cage will always keep things
interesting, on screen and off.
