Twilighters Anonymous has a great interview with Gil Birmingham, who plays Billy Black in the Twilight films. He discusses his connection with Billy Black, how the Twilight craze has affected him and filming New Moon. Plus he talks about some upcoming projects he is working on.
TA.com: How did you first hear about the movie Twilight, and can you tell us a little bit about your audition process for the role of Billy Black?
GB: My agent brought me the script. At that time, I knew little about the Twilight books, but I knew that the character had a unique story, and that the vampire/werewolf romance genre had a great appeal. I felt very connected with the character, which apparently showed during the audition process.
