Attention Twilight fans! Surely there are some of you out there? If you fancy reading Caroline Foran's exclusive interview with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn star MyAnna Buring, to mark the release of Part 1 on DVD, head over yonder to the full feature here.
If you're in two minds... here's a teaser.
Warning: The following article details Caroline Foran's mild obsession for The Twilight Saga and Robert Pattinson's jaw line. Some readers may find this annoying.
It's no secret in these entertainment.ie towers that I am quite the fan of Twilight. If you're reading this, you are probably one too. From the moment Edward Cullen glided into that Forks High School canteen - with his pasty, sometimes glittery skin, his carved-by-angels bone structure and his eyes so smouldering they'd burn a hole in the back of your head –setting his eyes (and nose) on Kristen Stewart's Bella Swan, I too fell in love. Transported to a world where there exists a kind of love that you cannot defy, I being a hopeless romantic fell victim to its sugar coated charm. I'm such a fan in fact, I even have a Twilight branded towel resting on the back of my chair in work (complete with poster on the office wall). I didn't buy it, it was given to me. I'm not that fanatical.
So you can imagine my excitement when I was phoned with the news that I would be interviewing cast member MyAnna Buring, who took on the small yet significant task of bringing vampire Tanya Denali to life. To mark the release of Breaking Dawn Part 1 on DVD, it was my utmost pleasure – and somewhat dream come true, given that she's breathed the same air as Robert Pattinson, OMG etc – to speak with the up and coming actress. Was she a fan before, was it fun on set, is RPattz really as dreamy in person, is she Team Edward or Team Jacob? There was just too much this Twihard wanted to ask. Anyhoo, here be the gist of our exchange.
So how did your part in the movie come about in the first place?
Well it was really straight forward actually. Basically I just got a call from LA, they had put out a casting call because they just couldn't find the right fit for Tanya from what I can understand, and my manager here said 'listen anyone can put themselves on tape so just go for it', and it was very unlikely they'd see it but I'd do it anyway. I did it, it was a rushed job and I was actually on my way to shoot another film – Kill List, I hadn't thought anymore of it and then two weeks later I got a call saying id gotten the job!
Deadly! You must have been a fan before to have auditioned for it?
Massive fan, yea. I read the books before first film came out and I loved them. I read them all in about a week and thought they were brilliant.
One week! I thought I was bad finishing Breaking Dawn in under 4 days. What is it about Twilight that you think has resonated around the world?
There's a few things. For one there's a heroine that people can really identify with, Bella. She's a little bit clumsy and feels a bit awkward and an outsider and I think that is something a lot of people have felt at some point in their lives. And then the love story as well. I think we sort of are all fans of love really if you're not then you're too cynical aren't you?
Now to the part you've all been waiting for: competition time! Entertainment One are delighted to announce the Home Entertainment release of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN - PART 1, available to pre-order now from Play. The penultimate installment in The Twilight Saga will be...
