Andrea Gabriel, who is playing Kebi in Breaking Dawn, was recently interviewed by the website Rock Bottom.
Let’s get to the first Twitter question…
@Twilightfreak72 wanted to know what it was like on the set of Breaking Dawn – and what was your favorite part of playing a vampire?
[laughs] It’s a lot of fun – the vampires are a blast… all of the people who are in this cast… it’s a wonderful group, and it’s very diverse. Just like there’s not two of any one kind – it’s a real bonding experience because we’re all in the same boat, we’re all on location and our families, our homes and our pets are all [laughs] very far away. So it does feel like camp. And then, my favorite part of playing a vampire is… I guess just being a badass. [laughs]
Are you wearing a lot of makeup in this role?
Not a lot, no. There’s certain vampire traits that I have, but no… I mean these are hot vampires. [laughs] These are runway vampires, they’re very stylish, they’re very cool… there’s not a bad looking one in it that I can see. [laughs] I think this vampire thing is a good racket if you can get it because they’re going to surrounded by hot co-workers.
Is this a physical role?
Mine’s not, no. There are some very physical roles – mine is not as physical as some of them. Yeah, there’s going to be a ton of action in this – that’s part of what they’re working on right now. It’s going to be like crazy… crazy action.
Another Twitter question, TwiLifeLover wanted to know: Did you really enjoy working with the cast? Was it easy? And were they funny?
[laughs] Yes… yes… and yes. [laughs] Yeah, I’m having a great time – and everybody is hilarious. There’s some very clever… we laugh a lot… we laugh a lot. We have little inside vampire jokes, it’s a lot of fun.
And most of the cast is a lot younger than you.
Um, it depends. The main characters are younger, yeah, but as for the vampires they kind of run the gambit. There are a few in my age range, there are few in their early twenties, and then there are a few that are older. But the main characters – it’s geared towards the kids.
