TwilightBlog.net has an interview with Charlie Bewley, otherwise known as Volturi guard Demetri in New Moon. Of the actors cast as Volturi, Charlie has been the one we know the least about, but this interview changes that. He’s got alot to say about New Moon (he calls Stephanie a “genius”), his character, his upbringing and how he spends his down time.
Here’s what he has to say about Demetri:
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.
