Christopher Heyerdahl Talks The Twilight Saga
07.13.09 by REELZ
Christopher Heyerdahl, the actor behind New Moon's Volturi vampire Marcus, spoke to Sci Fi Wire about New Moon, vampires, and the upcoming sequels. On character Marcus, Heyerdahl had nothing but good things to say:
He's one of the oldest vampires on the planet, and who doesn't want to
play a 3,000-year-old vampire? The cast that I get to work with, like Michael Sheen.... We had so much fun goofing off together. It was an absolute hoot. Director Chris Weitz's version for this piece is like a Renaissance painting. The images were absolutely beautiful, and the character is such a tragic old fellow.
When asked about Breaking Dawn, the fourth and final installment in The Twilight Saga, he said:
I have left that book alone. I want to leave it until we get closer to the movie. I was talking to Stephenie about it, and she asked if I had read the final book. I said, "Nope, I don't want to read it yet. I want to leave it alone until we get there." ...I do know generally what happens, since it is impossible not to find out. And, yes, I've been contracted for the final chapter.
Twilight fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief, as this is yet more confirmation that a Breaking Dawn movie is on Summit's upcoming schedule. And with Stephenie Meyer still very much involved, how could it possibly go wrong? Let us count the ways.
