Canada’s inMovies.ca interviewed Cameron about his role in Eclipse, Alec’s special ability, and his favorite Twilight character, among other things.
Could you tell me a bit about your role in Eclipse?
My role in Eclipse? I can’t really tell you what I do or anything like that. I mean, as far as who I am, you guys know that. I play Alec. He’s one of the Volturi from New Moon and all that kind of stuff. But you know, it’s pretty secretive, so I’m not going to be telling you exactly what I do, ‘cause I want you guys to go and watch the movie.
Well, I’ll ask you something else then. Twilight actors often talk about feeling like you’re all part of one big family. Could you speak to that?
I wouldn’t say one big family. I’d say more like partners in crime, friends, you know. Oh, we are great buds. I’d say I’m friends with a lot of them and I’m glad I’ve met a lot of the people from this movie, but you know, technically they’re just colleagues, right? They’re doing the same thing as me, and that’s what I like about them.
I think this might be my favorite answer in the interview…
Were you intimidated by Taylor Lautner’s pecs?
Was I…pardon me? By his pecs? (laughs) Oh no. Vampires aren’t supposed to look nice. They’re supposed to look mean. You know what I said? ‘Cause I’m friends with all the wolf pack, and whenever we go to Twilight conventions that’s what they always say—all the werewolves are like ‘You know what? We have the body.’ But at the end of the day, dogs are a man’s best friend, and diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
