Twilighter’s Hub recently interview Gil Birmingham about his life and career.
TH: Tell us about your personal experience of being cast in the Twilight Saga. Did you ever expect to be cast and did you ever think it would be this big?
Gil: Twilight was one of the most fun and rewarding acting experiences I’ve had so far. I knew when I signed on that it would be a significant film with a huge following. I have been swept away by all the attention and all the fans.
TH: Being an actor, what parts of yourself have you incorporate into Billy Black’s character, and what part of Billy, have you taken with you into your everyday life?
Gil: Billy Black is an awesome character to play. We are both down with the kids and we both try to keep it real. An actor always digs deep inside himself to draw out the personal experiences that bring life to the character he plays. I am not Billy, but there is a part of him in me and vice versa.
