What was the make-up process like for you?
Tinsel: After the make-up process, I was like, “I never want to do a sci-fi movie where I’m in make-up for seven months.” It’s
interesting. It was my first time ever getting prosthetics. They put
this goopy stuff all over your head and they tell you it’s like a
facial, but it’s actually very claustrophobic. All they have are these
places where your nostrils are and I kept thinking that they were
closing up, but they were like, “No, we’re looking at it.” So, they made
a mold of my face.
The first make-up crew had three test runs, so by the time we were shooting, they got it down to three hours. They switched make-up
crews for Eclipse and they never had any test runs, and they
had to figure out what the other team had done, so the first day, I was
in the chair for eight hours. But, they adjusted the scar from New
Moon to Eclipse. The first time, there was more pullage on
my face, so I had a hard time eating. It didn’t hurt, but it was
What did you think, the first time you actually saw yourself with the make-up on?
Tinsel: It’s weird. It’s other people’s reactions that made me feel uncomfortable. People would be like, “Woah, that’s crazy!,” or
they’d look at me really funny, but it also helped because that’s how
people look at Emily. I was like, “Come on, be sensitive! I have a scar
on my face. It’s not nice to just stare at somebody.” That was really

What made you want to get involved with the Twilight films? Was there something about the story or the character that appealed to
Billy: I had no idea what Twilight was, at all. Catherine Hardwicke had seen a movie that I did a number of years ago,
called Dill Scallion, and she requested to have me in. So, I
came in and we talked a little bit about it, and we read a couple of
scenes. In the movie sense, we both fell in love, at that moment. But, I
just thought it was a really nice love story. I didn’t really pay
attention to the whole vampire aspect, actually. It was a really nice
love story, and a really great relationship between a father and his
daughter. I didn’t really have a clue that the movie would have that
much success, but I had an idea that it would do something.
How has it been to work with Kristen Stewart? How has your relationship changed, since the first film?
Billy: It hasn’t changed very much at all, actually. We don’t hang out together in our personal lives, but whenever we get back up
there on the set, it’s very comfortable. It’s like coming back to work
on a TV show. Everybody knows each other and it’s very comfortable. I
love working with Kristen. She’s extremely talented and she has the same
work ethic that I do. She doesn’t carry a lot of baggage around with
her to the set. She doesn’t do a lot of unnecessary and extraneous
preparation. We bring our ideas to the set and throw them out there and,
so far, it’s worked really well.
