Best Answer

No. He is a fictional character created by the author Anne Rice - however, she did base Lestat on her husband, Stan Rice. At least in the first part of the Vampire Chronicles - 'Interview with the vampire'. And partly on herself, later, regarding that she's also said that "Lestat is me." But originally, she based him on her husband, as well as Louis on herself and Claudia on their daughter, Michele.
