Tinsel Korey may not be a familiar name (yet!) but this Canadian singer/actress has made a mark in the indie scene, appearing in films like "Mothers and Daughters", "Hybrid", It Waits", "The Lookout" and of course, the big one - "The Twilight Saga", as Emily Young, fiancee to the werewolf leader.
We spoke to the 31-year-old about the appeal of 'Twilight' (she made a good point that it's probably all the hot guys!) and her music career, plus an upcoming movie with Kevin Sorbo ("Hercules").
When you first heard about 'Twilight', did you have any idea it would turn out to be this successful?
When my little sister brought it my attention, Twilight had just been released on film. So I didn't know how popular it was, it wasn't everywhere like how it is now. I actually don't think it was released internationally at that point yet.
Have you read the 'Twilight' books? What do you think is the appeal about vampires and shape shifters, especially the ones that fall in love with humans!
I have read the books. I think regardless of supernatural element; it's about love. And it was the first fantasy movie that was directed towards a female audience. Actually you know what I think the actual appeal is...it's the hot guys! Joke...
Your character Emily Young is heavily scarred in the movies. How long was the makeup process and was it tedious to go through?
I had three different make-up teams for each movie I've been in. The longest it ever took was 8 hours and the shortest was 2 hours. It's a process; I'm the first one in the make-up chair and the last one out. You just learn to meditate and understand it's part of the process. As long as it looked good, that's all that mattered to me.
