New Faces Fridays: Judi Shekoni
How did I miss the news that Tyra Banks was in Breaking Dawn part 2? Was I too busy watching Will Ferrell cry over the break-up of ROBSTEN to read that memo?
Oh wait…. that’s not Tyra– it’s Judi Shekoni, the actor who plays Zafrina (She’s part of the Amazon coven and is is a particularly talented vampire with the supernatural ability to create visual illusions! DUH! How could you forget? (Thanks to Twilight Saga Wiki for existing)
You’re welcome for that great Tyra joke.
No but seriously. Continuing in our New Face Fridays theme, today we share a little bit from our interview with Judi Shekoni. The interview is being hosted on BreakingDawnMovie.org so make sure you check out the full interview there. Here’s a snippet:
Fansite interview with Judi Shekoni (Zafrina in Breaking Dawn Part 2)
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.
BOO! Check out the rest of the interview over at BreakingDawnMovie.org and read up on who else we’ve featured thus far:
