New Face Fridays: Get to know MyAnna Buring (Tanya Denali)

As part of the new fan site exclusive series New Face Fridays, we are bringing you weekly interviews with the new cast of The Twilight Saga, hosted on different sites! This week, TwiFans.com is hosting the interview with MyAnna Buring, who plays Tanya of the Denali coven. We’ve already met Tanya at the wedding of Bella and Edward, but I’m sure we’ll see much more of her in Breaking Dawn, Part 2. Check out a snippet of the interview below, where she talks about her first time seeing herself decked out as Tanya, and about another project she is currently working on!

Q: A lot of people who are cast talk about the very first time they see themselves in their red or gold contacts, and that’s the first time they really felt like a vampire. Can you describe what it was like for us the very first time you saw yourself all decked out in your vampire gear?

MyAnna: It was amazing. I think that’s the first moment that I really, truly, believed that I was doing the film. Because all of it, you know, you have this build up when you get the part and you can’t quite believe it’s true then, and then you arrive and you still can’t quite believe it’s true then. The idea of you becoming a vampire, or becoming part of this incredible group of vampires that’s described in Stephanie’s films, it’s such a far fetched notion in a way, and then all of a sudden as soon as the contacts go in, it’s a reality. Suddenly you are able to see yourself as apart of that group, if you will, and it’s amazing feeling.

Q: Congrats on being cast in Downton Abbey. Can you tell us a little about that part and when you are starting to work on it?

MyAnna: I’ve already started working on it. I play a maid who joins the rest of the staff downstairs. She causes a bit of mischief and I’m very excited to be playing, her name is Edna, and I’m thrilled, really.
