Here is a bit from an interview with Jamie Campbell Bower at Comic-Con this past weekend:
MTV: Welcome to Comic-Con and to “Twilight,” Jamie. How does it feel to be here?
Jamie Campbell Bower: Pretty good, man. I got off a plane at 5:30 last night and went straight to the Gaslamp theater and did hellos [to the Twilighters]. It was nuts. It was craziness.
MTV: Did you get to introduce the movie to the fans?
Bower: Yeah, we did all together. It was the entire cast. We went around to say hello to everyone who was watching, because they were doing a screening of “Twilight,” and so we all went in. … I swear to God, I saw, like, four people have a heart attack.
MTV: How does it feel to know that you are now a member of the “Twilight” saga group and have the power to make people lose it?
Bower: It’s good. I think I might use that, in a bad way.
MTV: Tell us about your character in “New Moon.”
Bower: I play Caius, who is the leader of the Volturi. They are a coven and effectively run the vampire community. They make the laws up. It’s me, Michael Sheen who plays Aro, and a guy called Christopher Heyerdahl who plays Marcus. We try to kill Bella and convince Edward to come and live with us â€” because Peter’s character [Carlisle Cullen] had come and lived with us before â€” and we love the Cullens deeply.
I think Jamie was a great choice for Caius. He has oodles of talent for such a young guy. I just loved him in Sweeney Todd. Too bad he won’t be singing in New Moon. How funny would it be if he DID? LOL!
When you read the Twilight saga, how did you picture Caius?
Do you think Jamie has the acting chops to portray such a dark and unscrupulous character as Caius?
Is it just me or is Jamie like an Rpattz mini-me? 😉
