New Face Fridays: Get to know Judi Shekoni (Zafrina)

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, BreakingDawnMovie.org is hosting the interview with Judi Shekoni, who plays Zafrina of the Amazon coven. We’ve gotten a couple of images of Zafrina and we can’t wait to see more!  Check out a snippet of the interview below, where she talks about seeing herself in her amazing costume for filming for the first time, and I think we stumped her on the second question! Sounds like we’ll get some fun surprises!

Could you talk about what it was like the first time you saw yourself fully in costume? There are some wonderful studio stills that were released of you and Tracey [Heggins] together in costume.

Yes, the first time I saw myself fully in costume was overwhelming. It was kind of hypnotic and you can’t stop staring at yourself in the mirror. It was just kind of overwhelming. I don’t think I’ve ever been in that position in my life, where I had so many people who are great at what they do, all come together and work on this project as one entity. It was really breathtaking. As it was happening with the costume tests and make up tests that when it finally came together, it was all of a process, and it was very rewarding.

Will we get to see some of Zafrina’s illusions in Breaking Dawn Part 2?

I don’t know if I’m allowed to talk about that. [laughs] I mean, we know the character has a special power. I don’t know if I can talk about that to be honest. I’m so sorry.

Be sure to head over to BreakingDawnMovie.org to read the full interview!
