It is all about the performance
Embraced in 1923 by Elizabeth Brune, who was enchanted by the young actor after meeting on the set of the snuff film On the Beach. She turned him after the performance so they could spend more time together but Creighton was furious when she told him he could no longer act and continued his career until 1959 when he had to stop, as the press were beginning to notice his ageless youth, and publicly killed himself off. This disagreement with his Sire led to her leaving back to Europe. With the end of his mortal life he began to make a name for himself in the Vampire world and quickly turned around the Red Light District making it his own and becoming the Primogen. He lives in the mortal and Vampire club The Crypt.
