Angela Sarafyan Rocks the Casbah–Hehe. I had to. ;)Jan 21st, 2011 | By Stefanie | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News
MTV spoke with Angela Sarafyan about what the experience filming Breaking Dawn has been like so far. She, along with every other cast member who’s spoken about him, had nothing but nice things to say about director Bill Condon:
‘I went on-set and met Bill Condon and he is truly such a great, great person,’ she said. ‘I’m honestly humbled by the fact that he is kind and generous and, with the enormity of this film, has been so graceful about giving every actor their time. He immediately put me on a great starting point. We were all in this incredible Egyptian casbah in Baton Rouge [back in November] and it was quite magnificent. It was quite easy. It’s not as pressure-filled as you’d think. It felt like an independent project where everyone’s having a nice time, no one’s pressured. It’s been that way almost every day that we’ve worked on this.’
She goes on to talk about how her first impressions of the cast were different, in a good way, from what she expected:
‘I was telling my mom, and I say these kids, they’re [probably] people who are not very nice and they’re stuck up … and they’re the complete opposite. They’re very kind and sweet and normal and awesome,’ she explained.
Read the rest of the interview where Angela talks about her character, Tia, the epic time-consuming battle scene everyone’s been talking about, and more over at MTV.
