PhotobucketNew interview with a Breaking Dawn 2 cast member with fansites. This week it’ Erik Odom, turn, nomad Peter.

Q: When you walked into Comic-Con [at the end of the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 cast panel], you got some of the biggest shouts out of all the newcomers. How did that feel?

Erik: It was unbelievable. The only thing I could say it compared to was the Part 1 premiere when I walked down the red carpet. It’s just, you try to prepare yourself for it as much as you can, you know maybe the response will be big but maybe it won’t, you try to be ready for everything … but when it hits you, your knees buckle. I mean my knees buckled. It’s one of the craziest, craziest things. But the fanbase has always been so enthusiastic, so passionate. And I think part of it has always been a combination of people loving the character Peter and just also being on Twitter and being on Facebook and having fans reach out, just trying to interact as much as possible and including the fans as much as you can, you know. Because the fans are what make the fandom what it is..

Q: People love Peter, but they also love Peter with Charlotte. Their relationship’s really special, and I know that that’s something we hope to see on-screen, and I was wondering how far in advance did you meet Valorie [Curry], and you know make it into a rhythm with her and feel like you could portray that on-screen?

Erik: What was great about Valorie, even more so than a lot of the other vampires who I met once we went to Louisiana together, I actually – I didn’t know her personally, but we had a lot of mutual friends in Los Angeles – so through the small world of Facebook, we were able to link up after the whole casting announcement came up, and we actually grabbed lunch before we even started filming, before we left. So, we went to a place in L.A., sat down for about two hours, and after the initial twenty minutes of ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe I’m a part of this; Oh my God I can’t believe I’m a part of this!’ After twenty minutes of us geeking out together about how cool it was, we really dug in and talked about Peter and Charlotte’s relationship and their relationship to the other vampires. You know, because the covens are such an interesting thing, they call the nomads a coven but really it’s Peter and Charlotte versus the world. You know, so we talked about really diving into the relationship, back to Maria [in Eclipse] and back to the newborn army and their relationship with Alice and Jasper, and it was just nice that by the time we got to Louisiana together, we already had the seeds of this relationship planted, you know? It was really nice. I love Valorie.

Q: How much of that backstory do you think will make it onto the film??

PhotobucketNew interview with a member of Breaking Dawn 2 cast, Toni Trucks, who plays vampire Mary.

Q: There’s not a whole lot of information on your character in the books, so did you have any conversations with Stephenie [Meyer] or even with Melissa Rosenberg, or did you get to build a lot for yourself?

Toni: We did get to build a lot. I did pull Stephenie aside – I think a lot of us did – and Stephenie was, I mean, how rare to have contact with the writer right there every day with us, so it was such a treat. But she really gave us the freedom to create the characters that we needed to do the daily work, with the disclaimer that what we needed to do to get the work done may be different than what would possibly end up in like the ultimate Twilight Guide and stuff like that. So, she definitely prepared us for that, but she gave us the freedom … She told us what she had written and then gave us the freedom to do whatever we wanted to do, and I remember at the time when I spoke to her, she was like Edi Gathegi’s the perfect example because she had written pages and pages of his back-story, and he’s going to be really surprised when the Guide comes down. It’s totally different, but you know you kind of have to marry what’s written and then you have to do your job.

Q: What can you tell us about Mary, can you describe her?

Toni: Sure! The thing I loved most about Mary is it’s such a treat when you get introduced to all of these new vampires, and a majority of them are coming in pairs. You know, they’ve got their mates. And even though you have Peter and Charlotte within the nomad family, our coven is not really a coven. We don’t travel around together, we truly are nomadic. I love that Mary … comes of her own volition. She doesn’t have any real prior relationship, and when her job is done there … You know, she’s not going to come back for Christmas. That’s not Mary’s M.O. And the whole idea of this like family unit for Mary is really foreign. And so she truly is a nomad. She is a wanderer. She doesn’t need to sleep in the same bed every night. But you know she is one of their strongest friends so ended up valuable.

Q: Mary comes upon Randall – they’re not coming together, they kind of meet up – I’m curious will we get to see any of that, or is it kind of going to be you guys showing up together? Because you guys are nomads, you are generally on your own…

Fansites interview, this week Alistair Joe Anderson.

Enjoy the interview:

How much did you know about Twilight before you auditioned or before you got the part?

Joe Anderson: I wasn’t living on Mars so I knew a lot about it. Friends of the family as well were a little younger than I am, young girls, and they were huge, huge fans so when they found out that I was going to have something to do with it, my street cred went through the roof. So there was a gathering and watching of films together and getting excited about it. I’d seen all of them (the movies) I think by the time I was shooting in Canada.

Does that mean you haven’t read any of them?

Joe: No, you know interestingly enough, no, I did pick around the books. The interesting thing with Alistair is that the way he is used in the film versus the books is slightly different. For me it was more about taking this rather aloof character and developing him. And as an outsider, you know I wasn’t part of the previous movies, so I sort of felt like I had a bit of room to kind of play with this guy because none of the other characters quite knew what to expect and what have you. So it was quite freeing – quite fun to sort of go in there and really sort of invent something.

He’s (Alistair) a loner. Except for his history with Carlisle, you almost wonder why he decided to come and join up with the Cullen’s. He’s leaving pretty early on. Did you have an idea or did you talk to Stephenie about what his motivations were?

Joe: Yeah. It’s a really interesting question. I think, obviously without giving too much away, that the notion of just a general sort of right and wrong. One of things that serves Alistair is that he’s a tracker – his senses were quite strong. I think the reason for what he does is more to do with morality and right and wrong, and I think that he just doesn’t feel he is necessary because whatever will happen will happen. But I think it will explain itself, without giving anything away, more clearly in the film.

As the images are coming out of the new vampires some of them are really quite striking, and I have to tell you when your shot of Alistair came up in the trailer I jumped and I was like, *gasp* ‘Oh my gosh!’ because I really didn’t expect them to show Alistair in the trailer. What was it like for you to see yourself in your full costume and makeup with the contacts the first time you saw yourself in character?

PhotobucketEnjoy fansites interview with Guri Weinberg!

Question: What did you think of your costume and your makeup the very first time you saw yourself fully decked out as your character?

Guri: Well I loved it. I mean it was a little freaky but I loved it. It was exactly what Michael, who is the head wardrobe guy wanted when we first met and we put on the wardrobe. The eyes were a little weird, cause I don’t wear contact lenses, so it took them half an hour to put them in and then it took me another good half an hour to see through them. So when I actually figured out what I looked like, I was pretty happy with it.

Question: You had never worn contacts before? That’s got to be a crazy situation.

Guri: Ya, it was awful. But because we had a whole department of people that handled the contacts and put them in our eyes. The first two weeks it would drive them crazy because it would take them a good half hour to put them in my eyes and they said you know we are never going to get through this and I said well you should try to be me.

Question: You had posted a lot on your blog about working on set with cast and your experiences from the set and since then. What kind of fan interaction have you had a result of that?

Guri: What kind of fan interaction did I what?

Question: I am just curious what kind of fan interaction you have had as a result. A lot of people don’t get into stories about the set. That’s kind of given us an inside look. So I was just curious if you had any fan reaction from that.

Guri: I always get, oh hey no disrespect but Go Fuck Yourself and it’s like how is that no disrespect?

Question: On your blog you made a mention that you got the twitter account and bought the blog and you started all the social media after you were cast. So do you think that Social Media has changed acting in a sense because of the way that you can interact with fans?

Guri: Well it hasn’t changed acting it’s more changed how actors interact with fans. It almost feels like a second job which I kinda don’t appreciate cause I don’t get paid for it. But it’s been really cool cause, joking aside, cause you get to know the fans, the fans get to know you. What I found most great about it is I got to know more about my character then I ever knew just reading the book, from the fans.

Question: What sort of things did you learn?

Guri: I’ve learned his past about losing his family, and this is where it wasn’t even in the book. Which is interesting because that’s part of one of the things that I came up with before I found out all of the rest of that information. As an actor you gotta take a character and sorta build their past, present, and how their past affected them in todays time. How they react to things. So it was very interesting to hear fans perspective, about my character and how they felt about it. And knowing about what we did in the movie makes me giggle cause a lot of it they got right and some that they didn’t.

As part of the fan site exclusive series New Face Fridays, we are bringing you weekly interviews with the new cast of The Twilight Saga, hosted on different sites! This week, Team-Twilight is excited to be hosting the interview with the charming Noel Fisher, who plays Vladimir of the Romanian coven. Noel shares about his experience on Breaking Dawn, Part 2, palling around with Stephenie Meyer, what he goes fanboy crazy for, and more! Check out the full interview below.

It’s been a really good year for you professionally, with playing a great character on Shameless, and then the role of Cotton Top on Hatfields & McCoys. What made you pick a 3000 year old grumpy vampire? Why did you want that role?

I actually booked Twilight before Shameless or Hatfields & McCoys, but obviously the Twilight franchise is in a world of its own, a class of its own. It’s really really different from anything else I’ve ever done. And that’s something that I try and do with my parts, kind of pick parts that are really different from one another and I’m also just a huge geek at heart, too. I love vampire stuff, I love fantasy/sci-fi, and all that kind of stuff so it’s right up my alley. That was another lucky thing. I get to play like a 3000 year old bad-ass vampire. That’s awesome!

You filmed Hatfields & McCoys in Romania and you played a Romanian vampire in Breaking Dawn. Did you feel a special bond with the country when you were there filming?

I don’t know, I basically thought it was a really funny coincidence that I was going there just a few months after Twilight wrapped. I thought that was quite funny. We shot near Vlad the Impaler’s actual castle, which isn’t really a castle anymore. It’s basically a bunch of rubble now, but some of the drivers in Romania were telling us that just a few miles from where we were was a pile of rubble that was actually Vlad the Impaler’s old spot. So I thought that was kind of cool.

Can you tell us what it was like when you saw yourself fully decked out in your vampire gear with the red eyes for the first time?

In a word: Amazing. I thought that all the artistic stuff we did with this movie, in terms of wardrobe and makeup and hair and everything, really I thought it was very top notch. There’s something really special and transformative to put on all these really specific pieces of clothing and to have the eyes in, it really helped me with that very regal kind of attitude that the Romanians have from being that kind of royal group.

What was it like joining such an established franchise? Did you feel like the new kid on set?

I actually found it really welcoming. I think it was really wonderful because it was a really big group of newbies coming on. Basically, one of the really nice things about the set was that all the Cullens, and all the people that have been doing this for a long time, all they way up the ladder to Wyck, to everyone, everyone was very welcoming. It created a very warm kind of atmosphere on set, so that was kind of my experience, so I had a blast.

What was it like filming Breaking Dawn so close to home in Vancouver?

Actually, Twilight was the very first job that I’ve ever gone back to Vancouver to shoot since I moved to Los Angeles, which was really surprising. It was really cool. The hotel that we stayed at was literally three blocks away from my sister’s apartment. It was really wonderful to get to go home and see my sister, to see my family, to run around to all the little restaurants and cafes that I used to hang out at. It was really fun.

PhotobucketAfter the first part here now you can read the second part of Bill Condon question and answers with fansites.

Becca: So Stephenie takes a huge chunk of this book and puts it in Jacob’s perspective.

Bill: Well, the last film, not this one so much.

Becca: It is part one, ok.

Bill: That was interesting in that, to go inside the wolves and everything, but here, it’s Bella. It’s all Bella.

Kallie: One of the scenes we saw, no it was one of the stills that we saw, of it looked like it could be Renesmee communicating, The first thing that hit on twitter was ‘What do you guys think is going to happen, is it going to be like the wolves? Is it going to be different?’ Have you even, I am sure that you have approached it, but is that clear in your head how you want it to be seen?

Bill: Yeah, and it’s not like the wolves. [Bill wipes forehead in relief and all laugh]

Kallie: I wasn’t even sure I would get that, so I am happy. Awesome.

Bill: It’s definitely own thing. You know that’s what’s fun, cause we do have, now you have this whole different power and this whole different way of communicating. And that means we get to play with a whole different visual approach.

Nikki: How tuned into the fans and people’s critiques are you? I mean it seems with a series that is so popular, it would be film making by democracy maybe?

Bill: A little bit. I think that’s very true. I think we are right from the script stage what are favorite things, what you feel comfortable with, visualizing in a different way, and then obviously I read everything written, every good and awful thing. So very, very tuned into that.

Laura: Picking up with what Nikki said, our fandom, and there are definitely some fan favorite scenes that we can see have ended up in the movie, by just stills or you know, looking at the trailer, are the two that I can think of right off the top of my head. With the arm wrestling thing, I can’t tell you how many people are thrilled about the arm wrestling. I mean I don’t think I have ever gotten so many RT’s off of arm wrestling in my life. That and just the inclusion of Garrett, and sort of that character and his speech and what he does, so I guess what’s, and you know there’s other fan favorites that got cut from the first one, like the dog bowl thing. Is hard for you to decide what stays and what gets cut? Or humor sometimes, is it easier to put humor in this one then it was the last one?

Bill: I think so. I think that’s true. I think the dog bowl is a good example of that. We’re trying to fit that in to the long version, you know, the one movie. It a whole different, I thought in that case, it was important to stay with Bella. Again, it was all like, but now we’re trying to find room for it in kind of, a different pace film. But here, I got to say, let me think, there are one or two things that we shot like that that didn’t make it in the film. Not as much as in the first one. I hope they won’t miss too much.

After seeing the same footage that fans saw roughly three weeks later at Comic Con, Bill Condon addressed a room filled with Twilight site operators.

Bill: Do you want to talk first or then see another one or what should we do next?

Jack Pan: Do you guys Do you want to see the second clip?

(Laughter, Everyone starts shaking their head yes)

Laura (Lex): Or you could just play the whole movie, we’d be down with the whole movie going, you know (everyone laughs)

(They then roll a second clip of Emmett and Bella arm wrestling)

Bill: There you go, probably days from our goal. That rock is going to look like a rock on the inside. (everyone laughs)… Yeah, so you are seeing all the flaws. (He’s commenting on so of the CGI still being in the rough stages. We saw the wrestling scene between Bella and Emmett. In it they rest their arms on what is supposed to be a large rock which looked a lot more like foam because it was still in process. In our viewing Kristen also tackled what looked like a carton cougar.)

Jack Pan: So do you guys, maybe quickly just want to run down your sites and we can start the Q&A?

(Everyone agrees, some say sure)

Kaleb: I’m Kaleb Nation, I’m from TwilightGuy.com

Heidi: I’m Heidi, from Twilight Facebook

Lee: Lee from Twilight Moms

Kimmy: I’m Kimmy from HisGoldenEyes.com

Michelle: I’m Michelle from BellaandEdward.com

Sheila: Sheila from Team-Twilight.com

Elena: Elena from Twilightish

Becca: Nikki and Becca from Letters to Twilight

Bill: (Hand Gestures to Jack Morrissey) Jack from Team Jack

(Everyone Laughs)

Jack: (Looks at Bill) Team Bill Condon

Bill: (Looks at people sitting to his left) Ian Slater, Ginny Katz. We edited the movie together. (Looks at back of the room) And Greg Yolan… in charge of everything else

Jack M: Greg Yolan from Team Jack

(Everyone laughs)

Greg (waves): I’m Greg

Jack Pan: So who wants to start? (No one says anything)… They were all so blown away.

(Everyone laughs)

Jack: I couldn’t follow it

(Everyone laughs again)

Laura (Lexicon): I don’t know, I guess I’ll dive in. The teaser (the first one) came out today and I think we all probably played that like 3 million times, not that there is anything wrong with that. And one of the things I really liked is you saw glimpses of alternative points of view…

Bill: Right

Laura (Lexicon): Can you talk a little bit about how did you those; maybe that’s a collaboration between you, Melissa Rosenberg, and Stephenie Meyer, to decide which are the alternative points of view, and how much fun was that to film something that is not in the book, other than saying we traveled some place and came back. Like how much fun was that, to go to that space?

Bill: Ya, I know, exactly like, for example; The Denali’s right? In the book they come, and it just felt like, to get our lead characters on the road together, in 3 different areas, was like an important thing just for the scope of the movie. I think you’ll see. You get a glimpse of it from the size of the main title. With this movie, it’s all about scope in a weird way, and it’s all about like, canvasing the world for all these vampires. So, that actually was, in very early days we made that decision to do that, It’s a challenge because, we introduce, I think it’s 23 new vampires, right? And, we do it in the second act, and by the 3rd act they’re on the battlefield and you have to get to know them very quickly. Actually it was great fun for the actors. Cause they all realized that they only had a moment or two, where they had to land what it was that they did. So it was part of what drew me to it. That it is a completely new part of Twilight that is getting introduced in this movie.

PhotobucketNew usual weekly appointment with the interview that the fansites carried out with an actor of Breaking Dawn 2. This time it’s Rami Malek, who plays the vampire Benjamin.

ENJOY!!!!!!

Have you gotten to see any of your scenes on film yet- and if so what you thought of the special effects?

“Great question I had an ADR* session, I’m sure you guys are familiar with that right?? (ADR stands for Automated Dialog Replacement) So I got to see some of the temporary effects they weren’t quite done but as far as I was concerned they were good enough for me- they really looked brilliant-vibrant and felt very real- I was happy to see that because there were points that I was concerned about- I’m always concerned watching a movie- when something looks as if it was developed from a computer and you can see when it looks generated by a computer it really takes one out of the film so I was happy to see that it really just looks as if I was doing these in reality”

Stephenine has recently released the “The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide” which had a huge backstory between the Egyptian coven and I know we’ve already sampled a little bit of what we are going to see from you-did we get any of that feud with the Volturi history from you guys?

“Well after reading the novel I came to the conclusion that there was going to be a lot of work I had to do because there wasn’t that much said in her novel- so I came up with a lot of ideas and Angela who plays Tia came up with a lot of ideas and we shared them over the course of filming- and when we met Stephenie she was able to give us a real concrete backstory which wasn’t far off from the things that we had created on our own. It was a very special feeling to have that acknowledgement from her that we were on the right track with her story from things that we were coming up with from our own crazy imagination”

Some of us had the opportunity to interview Bill Condon and when we were talking to him he mentioned talking with you about developing your power and you brining ideas to the table and where it emanated from. Can you talk about collaborating with Bill Condon- about the power or just your character in general

“I don’t know if you’ve been told this from anyone else-but when I first met Bill he allowed us to talk with him for a great period of length which is not always the case with every director so we were able to talk about the character just one on one for quite awhile- it really felt like a collaborative effort- whatever I was coming up with he felt like he could trust and what he was saying I wanted to trust as well-because I knew I was in the hands of one of the best of the best so in that regard it was very much a shared effort and then once we were on set- we were really able to come to the conclusion that Benjamin would use his powers- it would be a physical movement rather than the way that Dakota (Jane) might use her powers for instance. We just tried out an number of different physical movements and started to get a feel for what was right. I just kept trying to give him different options so he would be able to use what he wanted and I think he was happy with it.”

We saw in the trailer the water effect- are we going to get to see Benjamin use all his powers?

“That remains to be seen- I know we shot quite a bit of stuff using different powers so I don’t know what will make it into the end of the cut –the final cut- but-I think there should be some pretty cool surprises in store in regards to manipulating the elements. At least I hope they’re there!”

Rami you have a lot of other cool projects going on one of them being The Master- have you done your work on that yet and if so what has that been like for you?

“I would say The Master was one of the most inspiring things I’ve ever got to work on- I’m very fortunate to have the privilege of working with directors like Bill Condon and Paul Thomas Anderson who I think is one of the greatest filmmakers of our time. And working with Joaquin Phoenix and alongside Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams I just feel privileged to be able to get to work with them on a daily basis. I’m honored and floored by all of that- this experience was really something special for an actor to get to work with people at the top of their game- creatively and as dedicated as they are was something I will cherish for a long time- I think it’s gonna be one hell of a movie- they both are.

Aug 112012

New chapter in the series of interviews made by American fansites to Breaking Dawn Parte 2.

Today is the turn of Tracey Heggins who plays the Amazon Senna:

Tracey: Hi! How are you guys?

Great!

Tracey: I am excited to talk to you guys!

Q: We just saw the posters of you and Zafrina. The other actors have talked about what they first thought when they saw themselves. What was your first reaction when you saw the hair and the make up, and the outfit and the eyes?

Tracey: Roar! (sound) That is exactly what I thought! Whoa! This has an earthy, sexy quality to it, so I was all for it. It’s very exciting!

Q: Speaking of what you look like… You are baring a lot in your outfit. I’m wondering if you had to diet or work out? What was your regiment?

Tracey: Yeah! I have to work out. I’m a hippy girl… I have hips and curves. Literally, when I had the fitting, I had a King Size Snicker bar in my purse. After I had seen the outfit, on my way out, I dropped it into the trash can.

(Laughing)

I was, like, oh, no, no, no, no! But yeah, I do a lot of yoga. And, on set it was easy to be disciplined because Kellan Lutz is up there working out all day long, and the rest of them were fighting to get to the gym before shoot time. So, you know, it was a lot of camaraderie at the gym because we were all on camera.

Q: You were a big fan of the books and the franchise before getting cast. When you were cast who was the first person you told, when you were aloud to tell?

Tracey: Oh! My sister! My sister’s my best friend. It literally blew my mind, because I’m such a sic-fi, fantasy, you know, fan. And, I’m in love with love. Stephenie really captured that first love, that first passion. So, it was just an honor, I was jumping over the moon, and yelling! And, she was looking at me, my sister, and asking, “What the heck are you yelling about?” I was like, “I just got the job, it’s an amazing opportunity!”

Q: I’ve hear Mackenzie and Judi talk a lot about working with you, but I haven’t heard you talk about working with them. Can you talk a little about your relationship on set and off?

Tracey: Wow! They’re both my girls! I’m telling you… That Mackenzie is something beautiful and something special! She was my test student for my children’t books. I would read to her and she would give me her notes. She would come to set with pictures drawn of my characters, which was amazing. She’s just a sweet honest soul, she’s a nice little girl. We’d have walks looking at the ducks and things, we really honestly became friends and, well, I’m that age at heart! So what can I say? It’s not a stretch for me, I think I’m a little girl. And then, Judi, I cannot go shopping with her because we like the same things, and if I have a quarter in my purse we’ll go to the mall and figure out how to spend it. Judi is the best shopping mate of all time! She likes funky items. Even though we are so different, we are so much alike. Like, for instance, she’s got this ‘rocker’ kind of quality, and Iove classic things. But for some reason, we’ll end up buying the same things but putting them on totally different. It was truly a blessing.

Q: I was wondering if when you were preparing did you get a chance to talk with Stephenie about these characters, or was there any pow-wow about how she saw them and how you were going to portray them?

Tracey: Yeah, yeah! It was exciting! Very, very exciting! She was literally on set the whole time we were shooting and she was so available and so kind. So if we had any kind of question she was open to answer them. We’d ask, “What do you think we would do here?” And she was very receptive. That was really a blessing. I mean, I was in awe! I love Stephenie Meyer… I’ve read The Host, and everything. At first I was speechless, and then, she’s so warm and so kind, what can you say, but thank you!

Q: So you had some of your first Twilight experiences with the Breaking Dawn Part 1 Premiere and Comic Con this year. How are you handling it and what are you looking forward to when the movie actually gets in theaters?

Tracey: The Twilight fans, in particular, are just so kind and the reception has been so warm.  So I’m just riding the wave. It’s a nice place to be as an actor. You couldn’t have been blessed any more to be able to do this and have the fans support you. So I haven’t seen the movie so I’m curious. I don’t know what I expect. I just know that it was a blessing to work on the project.  I met so many friends, like Mackenzie and Judi. Working with them, Toni Trucks, Valerie, all of them, Erik, Noel Fisher. I met so many great people, so hopefully through this, I’ll maintain my friendships.

Q: Your character doesn’t really have a special super power in the movie, but if you could choose any power for your character which one would you like it to be?

Tracey: Oh boy!  That is so good! I mean all of them are so awesome! What special power?  I mean… I guess she would like to have a shield, but then… Ahhhhh!  Oh golly!  I mean there are so many I would like a piece of all of them.  Um, let me see which power would I want? I guess to electrocute people!  I mean, my character’s a fighter, and that would go well with her. (Laughs) That was a good power to have. I think it’s so fun, so I guess that one.

Q: If you had a favorite thing to shoot, was there a moment you were, like, ‘Wow!’?

Tracey: Yeah!  My first ‘Wow!’ moment was when I got on set, but pretty much the scenes when we all, it’s in the trailer, when we all said that we want to stand by the Cullens. Just watching everybody in action, I thought that was a good moment. Because, it was something… I don’t want to use the word teaser, but I just think that it was just one of those surreal moments for me. Looking around and watching everybody else and say that we want to help the Cullen’s out, that was a big moment for me.  I thought it was awesome.

Q: Looking at your costume, I think you and Judi both have a costume, as you said, a smaller costume, and everyone is always talking about the wolves having to be in the cold with not a lot on.  I think you’re the first girls to be in the cold with not a lot on. How did you buck up against all the cold weather wearing what you were wearing?

Tracey: Oh Wow!  They provided us with heaters and all kinds of stuff.  We had, like, foot warmies on. It still was jarring, as soon as you walk out.  We’re deep in Canada, and walk out, and the cold does hit you. But I think that we were so full of adrenaline from being on set, and being in Twilight that it didn’t really effect us much.  We moved around so much that I think we were working off adrenaline, but then as soon as your ending the day you realize it’s kind of cold out here… With our little outfits on.  Everyone could hear me coming down the hallway because I had all the puka shells, and you’d hear me, like, “clack, clack, clack”.  The first two days it was driving me crazy, but then I missed it afterwards.  I was like, “Awe man! I have no theme music!” 

Q: Did you get to keep anything from set, or from your costumes or anything?

Tracey: I tried, but no! They were checking my bag on the way out! No, I guess they never know if we’re going to be reshooting, or what’s going on, so the set, they keep those just in case.

Q: We saw in the promotional pictures the makeup around your eyes, but in the film we don’t see that. Is that something we will actually see in the movie, or is it just in the promotional shot?

Tracey: No!  You’ll see that in the movie, I don’t want to spoil anything, but yeah! You’ll see our makeup… Our special makeup!

Hmmmmm…

Tracey: It was fun!  At first when they put it on me, I was like, “Hey!  What are you doing? What is this going to look like?” But after we got it on, were like, “Wow! This is super cool!” It goes with the contacts and the hair, because as you can see I have really short hair.  Everything, it’s so fun, such a blessing… I cannot complain at all! That is super fun, when they’re experimenting putting makeup on you and making you look fierce.  It was just great, even playing in the makeup, I’m such a girl!

Q: In the books, Senna doesn’t talk much.  Do you have lines in the movie?

Tracey: Yeah! In the trailer, I have my little line there. In general, yes.  I like that you brought that up.  Senna is very quiet, you know, she’s watching. She’s there to protect Zafrina, and she’s kind of scared.  In my backstory, the last time she’s seen the modern world, they were making a muck of her village and moving things.  She is that quiet, kind of watching… And then she meets the Cullen’s and you can’t help but fall in love with them. But yeah, Senna is always constantly checking out, and figuring are these good people or are these bad people? How are they feeling? She doesn’t have a whole lot to say, because she really wants to see what’s going on. Is Zafrina going to be safe, and now is this baby going to be safe? What’s going to happen?  She’s very fierce, and she’s almost like a lioness. She’s maternal and visceral. 

It’s all about forceful presence!

Tracey: Yeah!  

Thank you, Tracey!

PhotobucketNew interview made by American fansite with Judi Shekoni, our Zafrina.

ENJOY!!!!!!!!

Could you talk about what it was like the first time you saw yourself fully in costume? There are some wonderful studio stills that were released of you and Tracey [Heggins] together in costume.

Yes, the first time I saw myself fully in costume was overwhelming. It was kind of hypnotic and you can’t stop staring at yourself in the mirror. It was just kind of overwhelming. I don’t think I’ve ever been in that position in my life, where I had so many people who are great at what they do, all come together and work on this project as one entity. It was really breathtaking. As it was happening with the costume tests and make up tests that when it finally came together, it was all of a process, and it was very rewarding.

Will we get to see some of Zafrina’s illusions in Breaking Dawn Part 2?

I don’t know if I’m allowed to talk about that. [laughs] I mean, we know the character has a special power. I don’t know if I can talk about that to be honest. I’m so sorry.

Zafrina is very fierce, she’s kinda scary but she’s also got to be so soft enough to befriend this small child, and for people to let her around this young girl. How did you toe the line between the intensity that she had to have and also the softness?

I think what was so wonderful is she has a real animalistic quality. I really wanted to work with what that meant and tried a feral aspect. I definitely worked with animals and looked up the black jaguar, that kind of quality. Then with regards to Renesmee, I thought of it like in a way, parental. It was so great that I got to have that parental aspect, because you know vampires can’t really give birth. I was fortunate to have that kind of relationship with Renesmee that most vampires don’t have. I also think it came from a protective kind of instinct. I felt that Zafrina really stands up for family and the most important thing for her is family. That’s why she wanted to help the Cullens. It’s why Senna came with her, because her family is the most important thing in life.
