Charlie Bewley, who plays Demetri in New Moon, recently talked with Glamour UK. Check out an excerpt below:
Were you a Twilight fan before you were cast in New Moon?
I wasn’t a Twilight fan. I just couldn’t get over that whole alpha male-ism that there might be a better-looking person out there in the world but me. (LAUGHS)
What was it about the part of Demetri that part that attracted you?
With Demetri, I knew that I could bring something to this character that no one else could; a certain energy and flare and charisma that I could really bring to him and make my own.
How was it coming into the cast for the second movie as an outsider?
A lot of people misquoted me when I said that it was difficult to come into a group of actors like that and they thought that the whole Hollywood cliché was the problem, but what it is is that with Twilight you have a phenomenon that’s only a year old and everyone has gone through it together; the staple six or eight characters in this film have gone through this massive amount of attention from the world and they have had to bond; they’ve had no choice, whether they liked each other from the start or not. And for people to come onto the set on such a high profile film and expect to just walk in and start high-fiving, that’s just not logical and human nature, and it does take two or three days for people to adjust to someone’s personality and sense of humour, etc.
Have any of the other cast-mates given you advice on how to deal with the hype, because Robert Pattinson especially has a lot to deal with?
I think Rob is dealing with it very, very well. I mean given the fact that he is the most photographed person in the world and that he can’t leave his front door. I mean when I speak to Rob, he doesn’t seem like he’s changed too much from when I first met him or from what I’ve seen of him in interviews before that. He’s still a very grounded person, someone who massively enjoys what he’s doing and an avid musician so I think he’s having a fantastic time. Did he give me advice? Not really. I think everyone deals with it in their own way.
