Michael Welch Talks about Finishing Up the Twilight FilmsFeb 22nd, 2012 | By Stefanie | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News
You’ve finished shooting Twilight. What are you going to miss most about filming the saga?
I really enjoyed playing Mike Newton. It was a fun, uncomplicated role that I connected with pretty easily. I’ll miss Mike, but mostly, I’ll miss hanging out and working with the people who I made good friendships with over the years. Making these movies kind of felt like summer camp. We would all get together once a year, far away from home, usually for about two weeks in my case, and create something together. We worked hard, but mostly, we just had a lot of fun.
Twilight has been a part of your life for many years now. What was the last day on set like for you?
I just tried to just take everything in with gratitude and joy. Experiences like that don’t come around very often, so I really wanted to enjoy the moment, share it with my friends, be proud of what we had all accomplished, and be happy to have been a part of something so incredible.
