Radar Online has a fantastic interview with Chaske Spencer where he talks about his role as Sam Uley, whether he prefers playing a wolf or a vampire (he’s done both) and how Robert Pattinson out did him in the gym while filming New Moon (Chaske says the first thing he’s going to do when he gets on set for Eclipse is try and fix that).
Radar: I know quite a few years ago you actually played Dracula, so what do you like better, vampires or werewolves?
Spencer: You know, I really like the werewolf. There are positive things about both characters. I like the werewolf because I’ve gained some weight; I’ve put on 20 lbs of muscle! When I came back from shooting New Moon my friends said, my God, you’ve just gone gigantour! I like that. It’s good to look at your arm and say, wow, that’s mine! Sometimes I don’t even know what to do with my own body; I’m like a 13 year old kid who just went through a growth spurt.
