The Calgary Herald has an awesome new interview with Cameron Bright (Alec). Check out the interview:
“Cameron Bright is 17, which means he’s currently floating above the abyss, but the Victoria native who made significant waves with his bathtub scene opposite Nicole Kidman in Birth, and donned amber contacts as vampire aristocracy in New Moon, is decidedly grounded.
“I’m at home on Vancouver Island, doing what any other 17-year-old kid would be doing: hanging out with friends, watching TV, going out. . . . I’m no different than anyone else my age.”
Bright says the only thing that really sets him apart from his peers is his job, and the fact he doesn’t attend a bricks-and-mortar high school.
“I guess I could look at my life and think I don’t have to go to high school. Technically, I could drop out. But I don’t see school as a backup plan. . . . It’s not like I like high school or anything. I’m normal that way. It’s just that I don’t want to be a high-school dropout.”
