Interview&Photoshoot with Twidad Billy Burke


TDink has a revealing new interview with Billy Burke, who plays Charlie Swan–Bella’s dad and Chief of Police in Forks, WA. In it, he seems very self-aware of the acting game, kinda over it, and a bit of a d*** but with a wicked sense of humor. That’s our Charlie! I got a kick out of this line–”Most of my youth was spent dreaming of being David Bowie and waiting for ski season to start.” Didn’t we all, didn’t we all. There’s also another gorgeous photoshoot from David C Lee, who did the recent take on Christian Serratos as well.

Do you feel like you relate to your character in Twilight?

Sure, a little bit. I feel like you have to be able to find a thing or two in any character you play that you can identify with, even if those things are not necessarily admirable. The self-imposed distance Charlie keeps between himself and others, most unfortunately between he and his daughter, is an idiosyncrasy I had to cop to. It is what spoke to me most immediately as I was reading the script. I’m hoping my own newborn daughter will help me get past and grow out of that bull@#!$.

Who or what inspires you?

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows. Seriously, I don’t mean to take the piss out of this question but as I see it, inspiration is a completely subjective concept. Anyone who says that they are consistently inspired by anything, will ultimately end up a liar. Inspiration by nature, is an accident. It happens when you least expect it and with any luck, when you most need it. Shame on me if I ever put the responsibility to inspire me on anyone else’s shoulders.
