Twilightish: How does it feel to see the end of the Twilight Saga? Are
you happy to move on?
Billy: It’s weird you know? Cause it’s kinda
like being on a television show for the last three years. It was a steady gig
for me you know? I can’t say that I’m heart broken about it but it was a good
gig for me. I’m a little on the fence about how I feel. I think that it has run
its course, and we as artists and audiences have gotten everything we can
possibly get out of it. Always happy to be moving on. I have no idea what is
next for me.
Twilightish: Do you wish for more
Billy: No, no I don’t wish for more Twilight movies. Anything beyond this would be pushing cartoon level.
Twilightish:When you look back on Twilight, would you do it all over again or
Billy: Of Course! Absolutely! Actually, I enjoyed playing Charlie. I liked him!
Twilightish: What will you miss the most (or the least) about the Saga?
Billy: What I won’t miss is the facial hair! It was a cute idea at first when I brought it up during the filming of the first movie. Then I had no idea we were going to make 5 movies. What will I miss? Charlie. I like playing him, I felt comfortable in his skin, even though he is nothing like me. I’m sure there are plenty of opportunities for parodies down the road.
Twilightish: Of all the character’s you’ve played, where does Charlie rank?
Billy: Well in terms of career gigs, probably in the top 3, but I have a couple of my own personal favorites. I’m probably not going to tell you what they are cause I feel weird about that. Although, Dill Scallion (1999) was more fun than people should be allowed to have making a movie. We shot it guerrilla style, sneaking into gigs and filming concert scenes.
