Tinsel Korey talks about Emily and the Quileute “boys”
Twilight Lexicon has an exclusive interview with The Twilight Saga: New Moon‘s Tinsel Korey, who will be playing Quileute tribe member Emily Young.
I wonder how Tinsel feels playing the only female member of the Quileute tribe featured in the film.Â She talks about establishing the Sam/Emily relationship for filming:
Did you, along with the other cast members who were also in the Quileuete roles, spend any time building back-stories or relationships?
I built my back-story before I met the boys, I already had an idea of who Emily was. Meeting and hanging out with the boys only helped build upon what my prior thoughts already were. I think when we all hung out the back-story just was there in who we were. Most of us are pretty similar to our characters.
You may recall that Emily has a series of harsh scars on her face, and Tinsel discusses how it will look in the film:
How long is the process of getting into makeup and costume for Emily and can you describe it?
It takes hours to perfect the make-up and youâ€™ll have to wait for the movie to see the magic that the makeup/SPX department created.
Tinsel has some nice things to say about Emily and her role in the tribe:
How would you describe your vision of Emily Young?
Oh god, I donâ€™t think Iâ€™m allowed to right a novel for this interview. Lol. So let me summarize in one sentence. Sheâ€™s a survivor, the heart and soul of the team, when theyâ€™re down she brings them up. Sheâ€™s the one you want to have in your corner.
