Salt Lake Magazine had an opportunity to interview Julia Jones and Charlie Bewley when they were in Utah this past weekend for the Twilight Night event.
SLM: “Please describe some similarities and differences between you and your character.”
CB: “Very fine, actually. I’m very much like my character. He allows me to be everything I want to be really. If I was kind of in that capacity, if I was head guard of something huge, that’s how I’d…I’d be the nice guy. I would be the smiling guy, I wouldn’t be like the tough guy and especially if I knew I had power behind me, I’d be very arrogant about it as well like Demetri is.”
JJ: “ I think always, or most of the time, with acting there’s an element of it where it’s you in the circumstances or the character. I mean, it’s all kind of coming from you and what you’re made of, and it’s sort of like alchemy in a way. The biggest difference and one of the hardest things for me to latch on to with Leah was the anger ’cause I don’t really express anger the same, so outwardly, so clearly. And I wasn’t comfortable with it, and I had to really push myself to find anger and to express anger, and that was something that I feel like David Slade [the director] really helped me do.”
This is a great interview with lots of intertaction between two cast members that we don’t usually get to see together. Read the whole interview here.
