Movies about his role in the upcoming film “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” by director Bill Condon stars Robert Pattinson (Bel Ami, Water for Elephants), Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Runaways), Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene (Skateland), Taylor Lautner, (The Twilight Saga: New Moon, My Own Worst Enemy), Jackson Rathbone (S. Darko, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1), Dakota Fanning and Kellan Lutz. Here’s an excerpt from the interview.
Guri tells Yahoo how he prepared for his role as Stefan, “The role comes from Romania over 3,000 years ago. They didn’t have the same Romanian dialect as it is today because 3,000 years ago there was Greek, Roman, and Slavic influences. We had to learn Romanian dialect, switch it around, and add those things in so it would be a little more genuine to the time when they were human. That was the hardest thing because it doesn’t exist. You have to make it up.
That was the hardest thing, along with learning about those times 3,000 years ago. How was life then? How did they do things? They used to rule the vampire world so they were more royal. For 1,500 years they’ve been kicked out and beat by the Volturi. You’ve got the royal behavior and thought but they’ve been exiled. They don’t have that royalty anymore. Some of them just want the revenge. It’s all those things. They used to have wives. Some of them lost their wives. How does that all play into it?”
