BBC News has posted a great article and video with Michael Sheen. He does mention New Moon and his role as Aro very briefly in the video.
“At the moment I’ve just come back from Vancouver where I’ve just got back from doing a film called New Moon which is the sequel to Twilight, which I know is very popular with young people,” he said.
I highly recommend watching the clip. He seems like such a nice, down to earth guy! In the clip, he was speaking to school children in Wales through a program called Film Club. I think it’s great that someone of his fame is taking the time out of his busy schedule to spend time with kids.
Sheen also discusses his role as Tony Blair in an upcoming film called The Special Relationship which chronicles Tony Blair’s relationships with former U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush. Dennis Quaid is slated to play Bill Clinton.
What else is in Michael Sheen’s future?
“I’ve got a film coming out called Unthinkable that I did with Samuel L Jackson and a film I did with Tim Burton called Alice in Wonderland so there’s plenty coming on.”
