BWW Exclusive Interview with Lisa Howard (Siobhan) on ‘Breaking Dawn’
Lisa Howard did an interview with Broadway World about working on ‘Breaking Dawn’….
PC: Moving to movies: you are making your feature film debut in one of the most hotly anticipated films of all time, TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN, yes?
LH: Yes, yes, I am! (Laughs.) Isn’t that crazy!
PC: What an accomplishment! And to work with Bill Condon – he’s a real Broadway baby; plus, he directed DREAMGIRLS!
LH: I think that’s probably why he even considered hiring me – because I am a Broadway gal and he understands our world, you know?
LH: I think that may have even been the reason I was even considered.
PC: The theatre connection. What was the audition like? How did it come about?
LH: Jen, my manager, got me the audition. Of course, I was a huge TWILIGHT fan and I had read all the books and seen the movies. You know, I was like, “Oh, that sounds fun! Great!” never thinking that I would get it – even though I fit the character description perfectly, and that doesn’t happen all the time for a gal like me!
PC: Where did you audition?
LH: We went in and I put myself on tape and we sent it in. The next week, I got the call that I got the job.
LH: I know! It was kind of surreal. I was like, “What. Is. Happening?!” I was so excited.
PC: What was your audition piece?
LH: It’s actually just a scene that’s really not in the movie, but they obviously just wanted to seewhat I could do with it. It’s a scene between me and Edward. Do you know the story?
