Twilight: Intervju z Rachelle Lafevre

In Film,Twilight on 20/03/2008 od Mateja

Stran TwilightMoms.com je objavila intervju z Rachelle Lafevre (Victoria).

TwilightMOMS Chat with Rachelle Lafevre:

TM: So, tell us a little about yourself. What is your favorite movie? book? music group?

Rachelle: I love all music but my boyfriend says I’m “a sucker for a twang” cause I love country music so much. Patty Griffin, The Dixie Chicks. But I also love Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, so much different stuff.

Movies are so hard to choose but here’s a few:

Stage Door (the Hepburn/Rogers)
The Shawshank Redemption
Braveheart
10 Things I Hate about you
The Great Escape

Books:
Memoirs of a Geisha
She’s Come Undone
Dracula

TM: Victoria is one really bad lady vampire with no redeeming qualities… well, okay she is sexy… Do you find it more challenging to play an evil character than a sweeter one? Or are you having lots of fun with it?

Rachelle: It’s really fun to play both sweet and evil. I don’t think she’s actually evil though – I prefer “unforgiving” or “merciless” because I think she believes she is more powerful than humans and so treating them as disposable isn’t evil, it’s natural. No one is one or the other, we have all in us. You just have to able to admit the worst parts of yourself and then access them.

TM: Are you, Edi, and Cam getting along well? What is this relationship like? Have you made any new friendships on set?

Rachelle: Edi, Cam and I got along great. Edi and I have a really similar sense of humor so the laughing was out of control with us sometimes. Cam is quieter but so genuine and lovely. I was so happy with the cast!

TM: Were into vampires before this opportunity came along?

Rachelle: Yes, I was really into vampires before this came along. It’s so scary but romantic and mysterious. I used to have a recurring dream where Dracula would take me away. I was about 14 or 15 and I used to pray every night that that would be the dream!

TM: Did this Dracula look anything like Edward?

Rachelle: Actually, because of my age and the movies that were out it was more like a cross between “Buffy” (the film) and Dracula was like Gary Oldman!

TM: How are you getting into character? Did you have to much research to understand this role, if so what did you do?

Rachelle: I read the book a couple times and then I made up a very intricate story for myself about why I thought Victoria was the way she was. What must have happened in her life to make her this way. That helps a lot. Sometimes I would just sit and let images run through my mind as if those things happened to me and the way it made me feel gave me a lot of ideas.

TM: Any chance of you sharing what the story for yourself is?

Rachelle: I can’t share the story because once I put it out there I leave it open to scrutiny and I wouldn’t do that with my life so I can’t do it with Victoria’s. Maybe when its over ; )

TM: Is there any other role you would really love to do? Your DREAM role?

Rachelle: As for my dream role: Boudicca. She was a warrior who drove the Romans out of Britain and was named the first queen of Britain after she died. I think I might have a thing with death. a fascination maybe – the fact that we die is what makes life so valuable. That’s why the vampire thing is such an enigma – you get to live forever but it’s a life without value because it can now be taken for granted. You can do everything you ever wanted only to find out it’s now meaningless.

TM: What do you think about all the rabid Twilight fans? Is it surprising there are so many “older” fans too?

Rachelle: I love the fans! For me it shows so much imagination to embrace a world unlike our own. As long as it doesn’t make people disappointed and disenchanted with regular life which is so wonderful all on its own. I’m a rabid Cate Blanchett fan. I don’t think I could speak in her presence and that is very much about the worlds she creates on screen.

TM: Thanks for taking time out of your hectic schedule to chat with us.
What led you into acting? Who are your hero’s? What, if any traits, do you share with Victoria? (Besides the beautiful hair!!!!) How DO you get into character for someone so merciless???

Rachelle: I’m very happy to take time to be here : )
I’ve always wanted to be an actor. I always wanted to be whatever I saw on tv that week or in a movie – lawyer, marine biologist, egyptologist, cop – then I realized I wanted to BE IN the movies, not do the job!

My hero’s change so often. There are so many incredible people but the one constant for me is teachers. It’s what I would do if I couldn’t act and I think it is the most selfless thing you can do. Teachers are tragically underpaid!

As I said before – I think we all share traits with Victoria. Ever kill a bug knowingly? You know murder. Ever lie? Ever deceive anyone for your own good even in the smallest way? You will find it all in everyone, you just need a magnifying glass, sometimes not even a big one.

TM: I wanted to be a music teacher…*sigh* It’s still my dream, right now, I am a Mom.

Rachelle: Being a mom is my other dream. I can’t wait! I don’t think I will fully know what it means to be a woman until I have a child. I have friends who don’t want kids and I understand and respect them but for me I can’t imagine not bringing a life into the world.

TM: If you could act alongside any actor, living or dead who would that be and why?

Rachelle: My two Kates – Katherine Hepburn or Cate Blanchett. Both because they seem so present, so alive and so in the moment, so grounded. Oh, you’ve got me fantasizing now…

TM: Do you ever get nervous in auditions? If so, what do you to do overcome your nerves?

Rachelle: Sure I get nervous! I don’t know what I do to calm down, maybe I don’t. I think what I’ve learned to do is channel the energy (nerves are just excess energy after all) and put it where I need it to be. Sorry, it’s hard to explain!

TM: What kinds of things do you like to do for fun, on and off set?

Rachelle: One of my favorite things is eating in restaurants. I could sit in a cafe for hours… I’m also obsessed with crosswords and sudoku. I admittedly read a lot of fashion magazines and I read a lot of books half-way through- bad habit. I also do this crazy workout called “Barry’s Bootcamp” which is like the craziest hour ever. It helps me use up excess energy.

TM: Since all of us fans are slightly obsessed, we want to know if YOU have ever been obsessed with anything before, have you ever belonged to a fandom?

Rachelle: Okay, it’s really embarrassing but I was OB-SESSED with the New Kids on the Block. I also grew up convinced I was going to marry Johnny Depp and I’m still trying to recover!

Transcriptionist edit here to explain the next post—- I usually edit out any side banter but the banter brought on by the New Kids on the Block comment led to a hysterical comment by Rachelle that I just have to insert here because it shows her personality so well. Somehow the conversation ended up on Snape. I can’t explain how it got there, I’m not quite sure, but A TM posted this picture-

To which Rachelle responded-
Filming: $200 million.
Fan base: 300 million.
Shirtless alan rickman? priceless.

Ok, back to the interview…..

TM: You’ve said that Catherine wanted you to really get a feel for what its like to be a vampire. Can you describe any of the exercises and/or training you did to become Victoria?

Rachelle: The stuff Catherine gave us and what I worked on was movement based. I was actually a cat in my house for about an hour a day at one point just to get it to feel real. Victoria is described as “feline” and I knew that would matter to the fans. I also watched countless YouTube videos of cat attacks.

TM: Thanks again for being with us. I have to go pick up my daughter from play practice. I look forwarding to reading the rest of the interview tonight. Best wishes for you as Victoria! We’re so excited to see you in Twilight!

Rachelle: It’s so flattering that you all took time out of your busy lives to chat with me! Tell your daughter I wish her “break a leg” in her play.

TM: So what is it like to focus all your energy into being a beautiful, powerful strong vampire? What has been your favorite scene to shoot so far?
Rachelle: I loved shooting the baseball scene because Nikki Reed (Rosalie) and I got to face off and we became friends so it was interesting to explore thinking of someone you like as someone you would kill. tricky…

TM: I read that you wrote a really long letter to Catherine Hardwicke about wanting to play this part. Can you share a bit of what was in the letter? I absolutely loved hearing how passionate you were about Victoria.

I also love that they have beefed up her part. Especially considering that she doesn’t even speak in the first book. Can you give us any peeks into some more of what Victoria will be bringing to the movie?

Rachelle: I don’t think I type fast enough to write what was in the letter but basically I expressed 3 things. 1) Why I wanted to work with Catherine so badly. 2) Why I loved vampires and the book and 3) why I wanted to play Victoria.

The most important thing for me was that this world be treated as real. since my character comes back for the whole trilogy if we get there she needed to be more complex than just “a baddie.” You never know what makes it into a film and what gets edited out but I wanted Victoria to represent something about modern women that I love which is the freedom to choose. Want a man? – be with him. Want out ?- well?… Want to say how you feel? Tell the truth. Women have come so far and that freedom is so liberating. It’s an extreme obviously in Vic’s case but that was the jumping off point.

TM: I know that you read Twilight, have you read the other 2 since getting cast as Victoria?

Rachelle: Read the trilogy, yeah.

TM: If someone else had been cast as Victoria what are the things they would not have that you have that make you unique to the part?

Rachelle: I know there are other actors who would have done a great job and I don’t know what they would have done different but I do know that for me she became real and not just a sci-fi fantasy. I’d like to think that I respect the role and the world of the book in a way someone else might not. On a simpler level, I made her playful instead of mean. I think the playfulness adds a toying element that is almost crueler and someone else might not have chosen that approach.

TM: What were you like as a child?

Rachelle: I was always hamming it up. I was an only child so I played all the parts in any game I played. Very over the top sometimes and yet also able to play alone for HOURS.

From grade 4-8 I was a bit of a mess. Big hair with freckles and a head gear. Not so popular…

TM: What kind of chemistry did you have with Cam since he plays your love interest. Will we get to see any of his affections towards you or vice versa?

Rachelle: Cam and I got along great. I believe there is real affection between Victoria and James but in the film (as in the book) there’s not much room to show it. We kept adding little playful tidbits every chance we get. Look for little looks and grabs (wink wink)!

TM: Is your naturally curly?

Rachelle: Yup. Curly, frizzy, big!

TM: I have the same hair!!! Do you just gel/mousse? Give me some Hollywood hair tips!!! PLEASE? I need serious help!

Rachelle: OKAY – THIS CHANGED MY LIFE:

Curly ladies -Brush in the shower or before but once you condition and leave the shower no brushing!!!! Also, towel dry your hair lightly and use a cream leave in and then do NOTHING. You get to see your natural curl without the mousse and stuff. If you need more frizz control add a frizz serum after the leave in while your hair is still wet but less is more! I just air dry and then hit the top pieces that get really frizzy with a curling iron. I don’t use the clamp I just wrap a small section around the barrel, hold, and release. Best trick I ever learned!

TM: Did it surprise you to find that a young adult novel became such a huge success with the 25 and over crowd?

Rachelle: Not at all! It’s soooo romantic and we never get too old for that, it’s what keeps people young I think!

Thank you guys for thinking I’m awesome, I’m so glad if I was able to answer any of your questions satisfactorily!

I cannot thank you enough for your interest, support, and how lovely you were to chat with. I wish you all only happiness and enjoy the fourth book!

Bye from Victoria Twisted Evil and me

Twilight: Ashley Greene spregovori za MTV

In Film,Twilight on 19/03/2008 od Mateja

MTV je objavil intervju z Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen).

‘Twilight’ Star Ashley Greene Responds To Books’ Fans Who Think She And Her Hair Aren’t Short Enough
‘I’m much, much taller than Alice is described, but who is 4-foot-10 anyways?’ actress says to online haters.

Following in the footsteps of co-stars Kristen Stewart, Rachelle Lefevre and Anna Kendrick, 21-year-old stunner Ashley Greene checked in recently to give us an update direct from the set of “Twilight,” an adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling vampires-in-high school book series by the same name. In the film, Greene plays Alice Cullen, a vampire who has some dark visions and lives among the living.

(For more from Greene — including a bit of casting news — head to the MTV Movies Blog.)

The actress was eager to talk about her new gig and reveal some major plot developments from the upcoming movie. And she also had a little something to say about throwing fastballs, sucking blood, fan acceptance and backlash and the only controversy you’re ever likely to hear involving Rachael Leigh Cook.

MTV: How are you holding up so far?

Ashley Greene: Not bad. We’re shooting outside, and we are ready to move on to the next shot. It’s fun, and it’s gorgeous out here. We’re in Oregon, but we go back and forth to Washington, because there are a few sets.

MTV: At what point did you become aware of the “Twilight” phenomenon?

Greene: I realized it was a book series, but then I was looking on IMDb and saw a bunch of entries already. I read the books once I found out about the project. My managers told me about the meeting, and there was no script, no breakdown. So I bought the book and read it in a day and a half, and I got hooked and read the full three before I even got cast.

MTV: I did the same thing.

Greene: They’re great! I can understand why there’s such a big fanbase around it. I made my mom read them, and she loved them too.

MTV: What’s the one scene in the book that you can’t wait to see on the big screen?

Greene: Well, the film’s a little different from the book. But script-wise, of course I’m really excited about the fight scene.

MTV: The big fight at the end?

Greene: Yeah. It’s a new experience to get to do that kind of stuff, even though in the book, the fight scene is a little different than in the script.

MTV: What kind of fight training have you had?

Greene: The first two weeks I was in Oregon was strict training, [and] there was no shooting. There was a lot of baseball, because there’s a baseball scene. Then we did wire-work, and a lot of stuff to get us into the feeling of moving like a vampire. There were a couple of dance and movement classes.

MTV: Ah, yes, the iconic baseball field. Tell us about that.

Greene: The baseball scene is in the book, and it’s a pivotal scene in the story. Bella [Stewart] realizes that there’s danger being involved with vampires, and we go out to this clearing to play baseball, and it’s superhuman and fun, and that’s where the bad vampires first enter the story.

MTV: Did you have to learn how to catch and throw?

Greene: Yeah. I’ve never played baseball in my life, so it was a lot of training. I’m actually pitching overhand fastballs, so you can imagine someone who has never thrown a ball in her life! It was scary at first. We weren’t sure if we were going to have to use a double, but I’m getting to do it, and that’s what we are actually shooting today. It’s our third day covering the pitching.

MTV: Are you even getting it over the plate, or are balls just flying all over the place?

Greene: They were like, ‘It’s OK if it doesn’t go in the right spot,’ but I’ve surprised myself out there the last few days. The pitches are going in the right spot, and I’ve only hit the camera a couple of times.

MTV: The cameraman must hate you.

Greene: I know! … He’s like, ‘It looks good. Throw it at the camera!’ They’re more concerned with the speed than the aim.

MTV: In the books, the various automobiles are very important. Which have you seen so far?

Greene: Bella’s truck is awesome. I’ve gotten to see all the Cullen cars, and that was pretty cool. I didn’t see mine yet. I think Dr. Cullen’s car is kinda badass. It’s a Mercedes, and Jackson [Rathbone, who plays Jasper] and I were sitting in it and were like, ‘He got the good end of the deal!’

MTV: How faithful are you staying with the character of Alice as described in the book? How tall are you?

Greene: Uh, that’s the biggest complaint about me actually; I’m 5-foot-5. I’m much, much taller than Alice is described, but who is 4-foot-10 anyways?

MTV: That’s hilarious.

Greene: Yeah, we’re trying our best to balance that out, as far as the height thing is concerned. The way they’re putting the cameras, it’ll be movie magic, I guess.

MTV: And how about your hair? Some people are complaining that it’s too long.

Greene: My hair is pretty short. It’s not super-short, but it’s pretty short. They released a picture of the whole cast, and it was pretty short in that. It’s actually shorter than that now.

MTV: Your set was recently infiltrated by a group of women who call themselves the Twilight Moms. What do you think of middle-age women crashing the set and snapping pictures?

Greene: It’s crazy! I mean, it’s great, because I think everyone came into it being like, ‘We have a young following, and we have some die-hard fans.’ But then, we find out we have these moms with jobs and kids and lives that actually adore the story just as much as the teenage kids!

MTV: Which of Alice’s characteristics excites you the most?

Greene: Well, she can see the future — that’s pretty freakin’ cool. Everybody wants a superpower, right? I also love the fact that she’s such a good-hearted character. She could definitely be an evil, menacing, dark character, but she’s not. That’s a really great trait to have. I wish I was that optimistic in real life.

MTV: She also takes great pride in being a vampire.

Greene: She does. Alice doesn’t remember her past, and I think if anyone has looked into it, she was thrown into a mental institution, because that’s what they did in the 1920s when you weren’t normal. And straight out of that mental institution, she comes to this family that just adores her and loves her. And everything is great, and she has everything she could ask for, and she’s got her soul mate, Jasper.

MTV: It must be unusual creating a decades-old romance for the ages between two actors in their early 20s.

Greene: Oh yeah, our characters have been together forever. The great thing about Jasper and Alice’s relationship is that it’s very mental too, so we don’t even really have to touch the whole film. It’s a very mental, deep connection. Jackson and I aren’t gonna have that deep connection in three months, but [our characters] don’t even need to speak. We know each other inside and out, and we are extremely protective of each other. The only time we really touch is when it’s a crucial moment in the film, or if I’m seeing a vision and he’s worried about me.

MTV: How are they filming your visions?

Greene: Right now, the visions are me basically trying to portray things through my eyes and face.

MTV: How does an actor pretend she’s seeing things?

Greene: Well, I have to create a whole vision in my head, an actual one. There’s a couple of different scenes where I have visions, and they’ve filmed them a couple different ways, so I’m not sure how they are going to do it. We went through a couple of things, but it’s not going to be a grand, big thing when I have visions.

MTV: As you know, we’re all about “Twilight” over here at MTV News, and we’ve gotten a lot of fan comments aimed in your direction. Can I get your response to a few?

Greene: Absolutely.

MTV: Kaggy posted this comment on our Movies Blog: “The most beautiful and well-managed of the Cullens are Alice and Emmett.”

Greene: Wow, that’s awesome! I like that comment. That’s funny, though. I’m flattered that they think that, and I think the whole cast is gorgeous, and everyone has their different opinions of everyone. I’ve been pretty happy with what I’ve seen posted about me. No one has flat-out said, ‘I hate her,’ or, ‘She’s awful!’ The big issue is the hair.

MTV: Well, that brings us to Alanna, who writes: “Alice’s hair isn’t short enough, and the clothes aren’t upscale enough.”

Greene: The hair thing is going to be the big issue. We’ve made it even shorter, but we do have to work with what looks good on me as well, and that’s the hard part of it.

MTV: And what about Alice’s clothes? The publicity shot has you in a puffy winter coat and black jeans.

Greene: I have the biggest wardrobe of everyone here. They have pulled so much stuff for me. I’ve had a lot of fittings, and we’re making this fairy-tale thing kind of modern but still going back to the 1920s. It’s a difficult wardrobe to do.

MTV: A bunch of people on our site keep writing that Rachael Leigh Cook should be Alice. What’s up with that?

Greene: Well, when I read the book, I could see that, and she’s the actress that Stephenie put on her site and said, ‘This is what I think she looks like in my head,’ so that’s natural that everyone else would have her in their head as well. But I’m supposed to be playing a 17-year-old girl, and I think Rachael would be playing a woman now, rather than a 17-year-old. She’s gorgeous. But if there are sequels, I’m going to be playing this young character for the next few years.

MTV: Dee said the following: “Ashley Greene looks Alice-y enough, but she doesn’t appear to have that same spark as what I would imagine.” What do you think that means?

Greene: That I can’t really see the future? [Laughs.] I don’t know. Hopefully, on screen their opinion will change. With pictures, you can’t see our abilities and what we are doing. I will dig deep within, and I’ll find that spark.
