Cat: Welcome! You are joining Cat &Emma on The Daily Twimes. You can find us at blogspot.dailytwimes.com or on twitter at dailytwimes. Today, we are chatting across the globe in Wisconsin, the U.K… and in L.A. we have the very talented,Guri Weinberg, who plays Stefan in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.
Guri: Hi! [waves]
Cat: Thank you Guri for joining us!
Guri: Thanks for inviting me!
Emma: So… what was your reaction after you were cast in Breaking Dawn and who was the first person you told?
Guri: Well, I was ecstatic. My manager’s assistant is a HUGE Twilight fan, so she kept screaming into the phone while I got the news. I told my wife first. My wife was happy I got to FINALLY play a vampire. I had always wanted to play a vampire.
Cat: Your wife has great taste! Now, were you already interested in the Twilight Saga before you got the part? Had you read the books or watched the movies?
Emma: Apart from homework!
Guri: I didn’t know too much about the Twilight series before I got the role. In fact, when the part first came up, I told my manager I didn’t think I was right for it. My manager’s assistant called me saying, “It’s TWILIGHT, Guri. Not only will you audition but you BETTER get the role! I WANT TO MEET STEPHENIE!!!”
Emma: Haha brilliant!
Cat: You are such a giving person for taking the role for your manager’s assistant, haha!
Guri: Well, all the film breakdown said was “Breaking Dawn”. Not being “in the loop”, I didn’t know it was a Twilight film. So, naturally, I was very happy to audition.
It’s a really fun interview because Guri talks about his, Noel Fisher, Lee Pace, and Christian Camargo’s on and off set hijinks! One thing worth noting is that Guri says Summit asked him to get a twitter account. I’ve heard of similar things happening where an actor or in Chris Weitz’s case, a director, will start an account in order to promote their upcoming film(s) and I find it interesting that Summit has asked the Twilight actors to do the same. I assume that if they asked one, they’ve asked others. Read the rest of the interview here: Exclusive Daily Twimes Interview with Guri Weinberg
