These interviews were translated from Spanish to English, so they might sound a little strange:
How can you explain the fascination that people have with vampires?
I don’t think people are interested in the vampires here. It’s more about who they are and not what they are. The interest here is the fact that Edward is a vampire, but at the same time he’s very human, and that’s new to a story. If you add vampires to the love story, that’s what makes it even more beautiful.
What do you feel about working with the same cast again?
It’s comforting, definitely. It’s like summer camp, even if it doesn’t sound very convincing, it’s the truth. We literally wake up together. We’ve already done two movies, and then all of a sudden, wow! The third is done, can you believe it? It’s weird.
Now that you’re famous, is it harder to go to places?
It was alright for awhile, then everything changed. People started gathering outside my house. It’s weird because anywhere I go to, people are there, it’s like everybody knew I was in Vancouver. In fact, it’s so hard to leave hotels without being followed. You have to really manage. It’s weird everything you have to go through. So I try to not be in places where there will be people. I try to go to the most shody places that I can find and where people won’t care if they see me there.
Fame must have its perks though. Parties, gifts…
I never think about that, actually. When people record what you’re saying you become vulnerable, so you must always watch your back. One good thing about it is that if I mention a band I like, or a singer, everyone writes about it. It’s like I have my own label. That’s what happened to some of my friends whom which I worked with for the Twilight soundtrack. All of a sudden, just because they had a connection with me, they sold out concerts in America and got recording contracts. Those are the positive aspects of the fame.
Do you feel pressured?
Not really, but I do feel a little pressured because in New Moon there’s a relationship between Bella and Jacob, and I want to do it the right way, just like everyone imagined it.
If you weren’t an actor what would you be?
i love everything that has to do with behind the scenes: writing, directing, producing. I can see myself doing it.
Who is your inspiration?
Ron Howard, because he was an actor and then became a very successful director. I like Robert Rodriguez, who I worked with on Sharboy. And he does everything: writes, composses music, directs, produces. It’s crazy, he’s such a talented guy. I’d love to be that way.
Do you have a funny memory from the set?
I don’t know, Kristen and me playing football. I always carry a football around and I like to toss it at the boys. One day Kristen said she wanted to try and I told her to throw the ball, and since then she’s my football buddy. Amazingly enough, she’s really good at it.
What is love to you?
There goes the tendentious question. Jacob and Bella, that’s love to me.
