IESB recently interviewed Christian on her experience working on the New Moon film. Be sure to check out the entire interview. I actually learned a lot about Christian that I didn’t know before!
Here’s a sneak preview -
IESB: Was Angela the character that you had always auditioned for, or did you read for anyone else?
Christian: I was originally called in for Jessica (played by Anna Kendrick). There was a lot of mixes and matches, and chemistry reads. They kept calling me in for Jessica, but at the last minute, they were like, “Can you read for Angela?,” and I was like, “Oh, yeah, totally!” I was really excited because I really liked that character. I wear glasses. The glasses I wear in the film, I’ve worn. I’ve been wearing glasses since I was little. So, I put my glasses on and I put my hair up in a ponytail for the audition. And then, I went up to film and we were talking about looks for the different characters, and Catherine told me that she liked my glasses and ponytail, so she said, “We’re gonna keep it.”
IESB: How much of Angela will audiences get to see in New Moon?
Christian: They’re going to be pleasantly surprised, through the whole movie. I think they’re going to get enough of everyone. I don’t think anyone is going to wish they had more. I think they’re going to be really happy.
