The A.V. Club recently caught up with Billy Burke where he took some time to talk about Twilight, 24, and his new show Revolution.
Below an excerpt from the interview where he talks about twilight :-
Twilight (2008) / The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009) /The Twilight Saga: Eclipse(2010) / The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1 (2011) / The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2 (2012)—“Charlie Swan”
BB: Charlie Swan has been very, very good to me. I went to meet Catherine Hardwicke, the director of the original Twilight, and we threw around a couple of scenes, and she said, “Have you heard of this saga?” And I hadn’t, of course. She said, “Well, go home and Google it.” And so I went home and I Googled it, and I was like, “Wow, this is a big deal!” When they ended up offering me that role, I was maybe one of the only people who, at that time, knew it was going to have an audience. I obviously didn’t know it would sort of overtake the cultural zeitgeist as it did, but… [Laughs.] Aside from that, it’s been a great gig for me. I’ve loved playing that part. I’ve loved playing basically the only guy in the entire storyline who has no idea what’s going on.
