Daniel Cudmore recently talked with Ology about playing Felix, auditioning for the role, his favorite scene, the last day of filming and more.
And now it’s all over! At least the filming is. What was the last day on set like? Was it weird how it all had come to a close?
Yeah, it was strange. I mean you’re go-go-go for three years. I kind of explain it like being inside a fish bowl and you don’t realize what you’ve been a part of until you step away. So the last day was kind of surreal. You know that it’s over but it wasn’t really kicking in. It was just another day at work, another film. I usually don’t get too caught up in the ending of a film because I’m excited to see what’s next but definitely looking back in retrospect, it was an incredible ride. It was pretty incredible and just a luck opportunity of me to enjoy.
It really is crazy to think that the films and premieres will all be over soon. How did you feel about how they ended Breaking Dawn: Part I with [spoiler alert] her eyes opening?
I kind of liked it. At the end of the day it was very suspenseful, and everyone gets all excited and wants to see what she’s like as a new vampire. Now to get everything wrapped up in part II. I liked it. I thought it was a lot of fun and obviously the little end piece was great. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be in it when I was watching the whole thing and then having that little piece at the end at the credits was cool too. But yeah, I enjoyed it!
What do you think audiences will really like about Part II in 2012?
There’s a lot of build up from part one. You really start to feel what could possibly happen with everything that’s going on and the threat of the Volturi finding out. What are they going to do about it? What’s going on with the wolf pack now that it’s split? I think it’s all come to a head right at the very end, which is a great place to be. Without giving anything away–a lot of build up and a lot of anger, you see it all come to fruition at the end.
