How does it feel now that the production on the series is wrapped?
TINSEL KOREY: It’s bittersweet. You’re sad that this huge chapter in your life is coming to an end, but you’re excited about the new possibilities that are out there. Like the wolf pack and I are family. I had this moment when I was like, ‘Are we still going to be friends after this is over?’ But I feel like we’re so bonded by it that we will remain family. It’s bittersweet.
What was it like auditioning for the role of Emily? Did you audition opposite any of the werewolves?
No, it’s funny because the other boys apparently had a really long process! I had one audition and that was it. And they shortlisted me for that part and I booked the role. So I had no idea who else was cast when I got this opportunity.
What was it like to play Emily? It was great for young audiences to see how beautiful a character can be even though she's scarred.
Yeah, I mean a lot of people love the Emily character, which actually in the books a lot of people said that they didn’t like Emily because she was kind of like the other woman in a sense. And a lot of people sided with Leah. A lot of fans told me that I brought this sensitivity to the character where they were like, ‘Oh I didn’t even think of that love story part of it and how strong their bond was.' They were focusing on Leah’s turmoil that she was going through. And even when we were filming New Moon I remember playing it different ways and maybe hiding the scar and Chris Weitz was like, 'No she’s really proud of who she is and the fact that she has that doesn’t discourage her and Sam loved her no matter what.' So definitely the filmmakers thought of the beautifulness of that rather than the tragic.
