Marlane Barnes, who portrayed Maggie of the Irish Coven in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, has revealed a very interesting fact about her audition process for the film ... it only lasted thirty seconds!
Speaking to Texas Exes, an alumni newspaper for her alma mater the University of Texas, Barnes explained, "I did a 30-second audition, and not long after, my manager called to say I got the part. It was very shocking, because you can go to 30, 40 auditions and not book anything."
Barnes also revealed the biggest challenge she faced with playing a vampire for the big screen.
"Actors work with their breath a lot, but vampires aren’t supposed to be breathing, because they’re dead," she said. "I was very conscious of that—it was tough to hide when I was out of breath. The vampire makeup was the same color as my regular foundation, which was kind of embarrassing. I also wore crazy blood-red contact lenses. I’d forget I was wearing them, and then I’d terrify the crew members with my crazy eyes! Mine and the other Irish vampires’ contacts were extra red to show that we were definitely people-eaters."
