MyAnna Buring talks Tanya, Breaking Dawn filming, Robert Pattinson and more
MyAnna Buring, who plays Tanya Danali in The Twilight Saga, talks about her role in the films with Entertainment.ie!
I’ll take your word for it so. Your role in part 1 of Breaking Dawn is quite small but we’ll be seeing more of you in the penultimate instalment?
Yea that’s right. Well obviously the Denalis are kind of more involved in the story in part 2. One of her sisters, Irina is the cause of why the Volturi are alerted to the existence of Renesmee. Tanya’s coven are the first to stand up and join forces against the Volturi with the Cullens and and Tanya is their leader, so yea, they play a slightly bigger part.
For the uninitiated, (shame on them) can you tell us a little more about the character you play?
Well Tanya Denali is the head of the Denalis. She’s a very old vampire who’s been around for thousands of years. She’s actually been described as being one of the original Succubi.
A Succi-whaty? This is getting awfully geeky now.
Essentially the Succubus is a mythical figure – who used to come in and cause trouble with innocent men.
Right, back to Tanya.
Tanya and her sisters have a bit of a back story. She also has a back story in that she has held a torch for Edward Cullen for hundreds of years, [he's only been around for 107, mind] and now with Bella on the scene, she believes that Bella is actually meant for him.
