MTV has done it again! According to Michael Sheen, his role as Aro is one that’s gentle on the surface and psychopathic killer underneath. I suppose that is a fairly accurate statement about where the Volturi member is concerned. I love Michael – he seems like such a nice, down to earth guy!
MTV: Tell us about your character in “New Moon.”
Sheen: I play Aro. For people who aren’t fans of the books, I play one of the Volturi — somebody described it as being like the royal family of vampires, which I guess is a good description. He’s very calming on the surface, very gentle and soft on the surface. But beneath, he is a psychopathic killer. … He’s a great character, and I had a great time doing it.
MTV: Have they shown you a cut of the film?
Sheen: No, nothing yet. I’m very excited about seeing it, as most people are — especially with my daughter, who is a big fan. I look forward to going to the premiere with her.
