Daniel Cudmore was sighted at the premiere of The Age of Stupid, a new film about global warming.
Here is a brief summary of the film from the Vancouver Sun:
The drama-documentary-animation hybrid film is the latest from Franny Armstrong, director of McLibel, and stars the Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite as an old man living in 2055. As the man watches footage from 2008, he asks why people didn’t act to stop climate change before it was too late.
So what did Daniel have to say about the film and its focus:
Daniel Cudmore, 28, who plays the vampire Felix in the Twilight New Moon and Eclipse movies, hopes The Age of Stupid will open people’s eyes to climate change. “In Canada we’re behind the times and it’s alarming,” Cudmore said. “You need hard facts to shake people out of their coma.”
Cudmore, whose next movie, New Moon, comes out on Nov. 20, said young people have a particular role to play in speaking out about global warming.
“I think young people fear they won’t be heard, but that’s totally false. We’ve got a strong voice.”
