The Daily Twimes Exclusive Interview with Guri Weinberg
The ladies over at The Daily Twimes were lucky enough to interview Guri Weinberg. Here is a portion of their interview.
Cat: Welcome! You are joining Cat &Emma on The Daily Twimes. You can find us at blogspot.dailytwimes.com or on twitter at dailytwimes. Today, we are chatting across the globe in Wisconsin, the U.Kâ€¦ and in L.A. we have the very talented, Guri Weinberg, who plays Stefan in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.
Guri: Hi! [waves]
Cat: Thank you Guri for joining us!
Guri: Thanks for inviting me!
Emma: Soâ€¦ what was your reaction after you were cast in Breaking Dawn and who was the first person you told?
Guri: Well, I was ecstatic. My manager’s assistant is a HUGE Twilight fan, so she kept screaming into the phone while I got the news. I told my wife first. My wife was happy I got to FINALLY play a vampire. I had always wanted to play a vampire.
Cat: Your wife has great taste! Now, were you already interested in the Twilight Saga before you got the part? Had you read the books or watched the movies?
Emma: Apart from homework!
Guri: I didn’t know too much about the Twilight series before I got the role. In fact, when the part first came up, I told my manager I didn’t think I was right for it. My manager’s assistant called me saying, “It’s TWILIGHT, Guri. Not only will you audition but you BETTER get the role! I WANT TO MEET STEPHENIE!!!”
Emma: Haha brilliant!
Cat: You are such a giving person for taking the role for your manager’s assistant, haha!
Guri: Well, all the film breakdown said was “Breaking Dawn”. Not being “in the loop”, I didn’t know it was a Twilight film. So, naturally, I was very happy to audition.
Emma: So REALLY out of the loop then!!
Guri: Pretty out of the loop. I am just NOT that cool…
Cat: Oh, stop!
Emma: [laughs] Stephenie is producing on Breaking Dawn, so you got to meet her?
Guri: Oh, yes. I met Stephenie when we did our make-up/wardrobe screen tests before filming began. She was also there throughout filming. We immediately “clicked”. She’s a really down to earth person and put me at ease right away. I was a little nervous to see how she felt about me in costume and make-up. When she saw me, she told me that it was exactly how she pictured Stefan. I was pretty happy about that.
