His Golden Eyes got a chance to chat with Amadou Ly about Henri and his experience with the Twilight Saga so far.
His Golden Eyes (HGE): I’m with Amadou Ly who is playing Henri in Breaking Dawn, Part 2. Now Henri is a new character. Can you tell us anything about him?
Amadou Ly: Definitely. Henri is a French vampire, and the great part about it is that he is not in the books so the fans are going to embrace him for the first time and see what the French vampires will bring to this lovely, gigantic franchise. I’m really excited for him. I think that’s about as much as I can tell.
HGE: I saw you tweet the question – Which side is Henri on? Can you tell us? (Amadou had asked on twitter the day of this interview: Which side do you think the FRENCH VAMPIRES are on???)
Amadou: *laughter* I can’t tell you that, but he’s definitely going to be one of those characters that the fans are going to love. While playing the character I bring a lot of different components to it. He’s speaking with a French accent. There’s that sexiness. There’s that vampire evilness. There are different components within the character that I think…that hopefully, I think, will translate on screen that the fans will enjoy.
HGE: So, any relation to Laurent?
Amadou: *laughter* I cannot tell you that.
