Hollywood.com interviewed Charlie Bewley while they were on the New Moon set in May. They talk about auditioning for the role of Demetri, Demetri’s backstory and what power he would like to have-
What power would you give Demetri if you could give him another power?
CB: That’s a good question. [Pauses to think] I think he’s a little bit pissed off that Jane has taken over the head of the Volturi; he hates that. Ergo, I think he would take a psychological power …
2:15PM Charlie has to go back to set, but he promises me that he’ll figure out the power he’d give Demetri and report back when he decides.
2:30PM Mr. Bewley motions me over as we watch filming. Seems he really has been pondering the question. Love it.
In an English-accented whisper, Charlie reveals that he’d give Demetri: “the power to change people’s minds.”
“For example,” he says, ”in the scene where Demetri is first introduced to the fray, Edward refuses to come with Bella. He says, “Bella, you go off and enjoy the festival. I’ll go with Demetri and Felix.” If Demetri had the power to switch Edward’s mind and change his mind, he wouldn’t need Jane to come in and clear up the air, how slow they’re being. Jane’s brutally efficient because she’s so dangerous. This is why she’s head guard, and I hate that, as Demetri, because I used to be God. So that’s what I’d do.”
