Examiner.com had a chance to interview Catalina at The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Official New York Oscar Night celebration last week. In addition to discussing her 2004 Academy Award nomination for Best Actress, Catalina also talked about her role as Maria in Eclipse:
Q: I wouldn’t be a good reporter unless I asked about your huge role in Eclipse.
Catalina: It’s not huge though, It’s very very little, very very very small, but it’s a huge movie, and it’s fun and it was great, and the people that I met they were lovely. I didn’t meet everybody, but the people that I met they were just fantastic, so I’m very exicted to be apart of that. It’s huge.
Q: In the books, Maria is very prominent. She’s the evil vampire.
Catalina: I know. I love that she was evil, I love that she had to do something evil. You know If I was going to be a vampire, I would rather be an evil vampire that does crazy stuff than a nice vampire. So yeah, she was so much fun though, she was great.
Q: Were you a fan of the books before you were cast?
Catalina: No, I saw the movies. I was a fan of the films. Chris Weitz is amazing and I loved the first and second “Twilight,” so hopefully this one will be amazing too. It’s going to be great. So I’m really excited they are releasing it very soon. I know it’s crazy they move so fast.
