Charlie Bewley exclusive interview
TwilightBlog.net has an exclusive interwie with Charlie Bewley, who plays Demetri in New Moon.
TwilightBlog.net: Have you read New Moon? If so, what do you think about it?
Charlie Bewley: Yes. But being totally distractible, I'm a useless reader. However this one I just sailed thru, especially from page 453 onwards...
What's great about New Moon is the author's style delicately protracts the plot to reveal all the stakes for each character involved. This gives impact at major turns of events and also allows actors a much easier job of playing the characters truthfully and to the readers expectations.
Full credit to Stephenie for her intrinsic knowledge of human emotional interplay. Fairly genius on her part.
TB.net: What are you looking forward to the most about playing your character, Demetri?
CB: Demetri is a Jesus amongst guards...
He has unparalleled tracking abilities together with insane strength, speed and classiness; lives in Tuscany, underground; hangs out with the beautiful Heidi who brings him food all the time; he has red irises and glitters in the sunlight... It's hard, therefore, to see what's not to like about playing this legend.
The commonalities we share mean this is a character I can seriously get my teeth into: He's a tracker, I'm a rave-runner; he's a diplomat, I'm a spiritualist; he's cool and stylish, I'm.... we have a lot in common.
What I love about Demetri is that he is utterly charming in juxtaposition to big bad Felix, yet "no less lethal"... clearly this guy takes no prisoners. Well, he does... before tearing them limb from limb.
