It must have been the biggest set you’ve worked on…
Well, I can’t imagine a film that’s generated that sort of response. It’s funny thinking that regardless of what work I do in the future, I know that I’ll never be a part of something that generates that particular type of response – it was really unique. It’s a credit to Stephenie Meyer, Robert [Pattinson] and Kristen [Stewart], and the rest of the cast, to capture something that is contagious and exciting and build that world in a way that’s compelling. I was really happy to have been a part of it… and just held on tight.
Did you spend much time with Rob and Kristen?
Yeah, it wasn’t like a closed shop. Even though that was a fear – well, not a fear, but you’re kind of hesitant on any job that you’ll into a situation where people have already established their dynamic and their own family. And to be an outsider walking into that – and also playing the bad guy! – you think ‘How’s this going to go down?’ But I couldn’t have been welcomed in warmer fashion. We went out to dinners and there was a really organic camaraderie that developed.
