Fearnet chatted with Charlie Bewley about the role of Demetri, how he got into acting, New Moon’s broad appeal and more.
What kind of career do you envision for yourself?
I don’t expect just to act. I expect to be on both sides of the camera, to direct and produce, and I have been writing already. I think acting is a great form of creativity, but in many respects you’re limited to what the script says, or what the book says, or whatever. I’m equally interested in pursuing my own productions and my own writing, and directing them, because I feel they’re more towards who I am as a person. What I want to express as a person, creatively. But I accept that I haven’t got the imagination that breeds characters such as Bond, Jack Sparrow, Tyler Durden, and all these wonderful characters that I would like to play as an actor. I would love to play these deep, controversial figures, but at the same time I’m going to entertain this career for myself.
