New Faces Friday: Toni Trucks

Dear Twilight,

Here are a few reasons why we love Toni Trucks who plays Mary in Breaking Dawn Part 2:

-After she tweets she says “beep” we assume because her last name is Trucks
-She’s on a new show called “Made in Jersey” which would be even better if it were called “Made in Pennsylvania” but Jersey is close enough so I’ll take it
-She lives in Brooklyn and enjoys Smorgasburg which means she eats unlike most actresses
-She’s SUPER sweet and friendly

Here’s our fansite interview with Toni Trucks. Big thanks to Amanda The Twilight Examiner for transcribing this!

Q: There’s not a whole lot of information on your character in the books, so did you have any conversations with Stephenie [Meyer] or even with Melissa Rosenberg, or did you get to build a lot for yourself?

Toni: We did get to build a lot. I did pull Stephenie aside – I think a lot of us did – and Stephenie was, I mean, how rare to have contact with the writer right there every day with us, so it was such a treat. But she really gave us the freedom to create the characters that we needed to do the daily work, with the disclaimer that what we needed to do to get the work done may be different than what would possibly end up in like the ultimate Twilight Guide and stuff like that. So, she definitely prepared us for that, but she gave us the freedom … She told us what she had written and then gave us the freedom to do whatever we wanted to do, and I remember at the time when I spoke to her, she was like Edi Gathegi’s the perfect example because she had written pages and pages of his back-story, and he’s going to be really surprised when the Guide comes down. It’s totally different, but you know you kind of have to marry what’s written and then you have to do your job.

Q: What can you tell us about Mary, can you describe her?

Toni: Sure! The thing I loved most about Mary is it’s such a treat when you get introduced to all of these new vampires, and a majority of them are coming in pairs. You know, they’ve got their mates. And even though you have Peter and Charlotte within the nomad family, our coven is not really a coven. We don’t travel around together, we truly are nomadic. I love that Mary … comes of her own volition. She doesn’t have any real prior relationship, and when her job is done there … You know, she’s not going to come back for Christmas. That’s not Mary’s M.O. And the whole idea of this like family unit for Mary is really foreign. And so she truly is a nomad. She is a wanderer. She doesn’t need to sleep in the same bed every night. But you know she is one of their strongest friends so ended up valuable.

New Faces Friday: Joe Anderson

Dear LTT,

HERE IS THE BIG ONE YOU ALL HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR: A preview of our New Faces Friday interview with Joe Anderson.

You know him, right?
Well DUHHH It’s Joe Anderson, guyz!!!!! He plays Alistair (Oh NOW you know who he is.. right!?)

Learn all about Joe over on Page to Premiere (formerly His Golden Eyes) today & catch a preview here:

Hey Guyz! I’m Joe!

How much did you know about Twilight before you auditioned or before you got the part?

Joe Anderson: I wasn’t living on Mars so I knew a lot about it. Friends of the family as well were a little younger than I am, young girls, and they were huge, huge fans so when they found out that I was going to have something to do with it, my street cred went through the roof. So there was a gathering and watching of films together and getting excited about it. I’d seen all of them (the movies) I think by the time I was shooting in Canada.

Does that mean you haven’t read any of them?

Joe: No, you know interestingly enough, no, I did pick around the books. The interesting thing with Alistair is that the way he is used in the film versus the books is slightly different. For me it was more about taking this rather aloof character and developing him. And as an outsider, you know I wasn’t part of the previous movies, so I sort of felt like I had a bit of room to kind of play with this guy because none of the other characters quite knew what to expect and what have you. So it was quite freeing – quite fun to sort of go in there and really sort of invent something.

Catch the rest over at Page to Premiere.

Xo,
UC

YEP. That’s all I got today. Can work just.. STOP?

New Faces Friday: Guri Weinberg

Dear LTT,

Today’s New Faces Friday features Guri Weinberg but DUH— that’s like Old Faces Friday here at LTT since we are BFFs with “Jerry.”

Some of our favorite things we know about Jerry are:

1. The fact that so far he doesn’t hate us for calling him Jerry (I’m pretty sure Moon did that IN PERSON at Comic Con too…. )

2. How great he is in interactions with the fandom

3. He looks better in real life than on his Breaking Dawn poster

4. He’s one of the GFYSers. And that whole thing is awesome

Learn more about Jerry today. Twilightish is hosting the interview today, but here is a sneak peek:

Question: What did you think of your costume and your makeup the very first time you saw yourself
fully decked out as your character?

Guri: Well I loved it. I mean it was a little freaky but I loved it. It was exactly what Michael, who is the
head wardrobe guy wanted when we first met and we put on the wardrobe. The eyes were a little
weird, cause I don’t wear contact lenses, so it took them half an hour to put them in and then it took me
another good half an hour to see through them. So when I actually figured out what I looked like, I was
pretty happy with it.

Question: You had never worn contacts before? That’s got to be a crazy situation.

Guri: Ya, it was awful. But because we had a whole department of people that handled the contacts and
put them in our eyes. The first two weeks it would drive them crazy because it would take them a good
half hour to put them in my eyes and they said you know we are never going to get through this and I
said well you should try to be me.

Read the rest of the interview over at Twilightish.

We love you Jerry!

New Faces Friday: Noel Fisher

Dear LTT,

Noel Fisher & LTT go WAY back. All the way back to June 2012 when we talked for hours and hours at dinner in LA (welllll more like we said “hey” and he said “hey” and then we snapped this photo that we both happen to be in)

LTT and Noel Fisher

So we literally know like ZERO about him. And since LTT readers tend to follow in our footsteps (I mean we ARE all in this together, right?) we’re guessing you don’t know much about Noel either. So today Team Twilight is hosting the interview with Noel, but here’s a little sneak peak:

Fansite interview with Noel Fisher (Vladimir)

 

It’s been a really good year for you professionally, with playing a great character on Shameless, and then the role of Cotton Top on Hatfields & McCoys. What made you pick a 3000 year old grumpy vampire? Why did you want that role?

I actually booked Twilight before Shameless or Hatfields & McCoys, but obviously the Twilight franchise is in a world of its own, a class of its own. It’s really really different from anything else I’ve ever done. And that’s something that I try and do with my parts, kind of pick parts that are really different from one another and I’m also just a huge geek at heart, too. I love vampire stuff, I love fantasy/sci-fi, and all that kind of stuff so it’s right up my alley. That was another lucky thing. I get to play like a 3000 year old bad-ass vampire. That’s awesome!

You filmed Hatfields & McCoys in Romania and you played a Romanian vampire in Breaking Dawn. Did you feel a special bond with the country when you were there filming?

I don’t know, I basically thought it was a really funny coincidence that I was going there just a few months after Twilight wrapped. I thought that was quite funny. We shot near Vlad the Impaler’s actual castle, which isn’t really a castle anymore. It’s basically a bunch of rubble now, but some of the drivers in Romania were telling us that just a few miles from where we were was a pile of rubble that was actually Vlad the Impaler’s old spot. So I thought that was kind of cool.

Hop on over to Team Twilight to read the rest!

Love,

UC & Moon

63 DAYS Y’ALL (I think…)

New Faces Friday: Marlane Barnes

Dear Twilight,

Today’s New Faces Friday features Marlane Barnes (She plays Maggie) the adorable girl in a black VINTAGE dress we interviewed on the Breaking Dawn Part 1 black carpet last Fall. I don’t think we ever shared this video because we’re lame:

The interview with Marlane is being hosted by Twilight Facebook, but you can read some of the first questions here:

Q: Your character Maggie knows when people are telling lies. Are you good at telling when people are lying to you in real-life?

Marlane: I like to think I’m a pretty good judge of character now. I feel like that’s one of the things that acting has done for me is you get to see when people are acting.

Q: Did Stephenie Meyer talk with you at all about your character?

Marlane: You know, I actually didn’t talk much with Stephenie about my character on set, I know that Lisa [Howard] did, but yeah I didn’t really get a chance to do that. I was interested that when I read the – cause you know she put out that comprehensive fan book – and I was interested to see that a lot of the choices I had made for Maggie were pretty similar to what she already had in mind, so I feel like we just kind of both knew… that we were on the same page.

Q: So did you fan-girl on her a little bit?

Marlane: You know, I actually had not read the books before I was cast. I read them once I was going to take the part in the film, so for me … Yeah, I don’t know, I guess I was a little afraid of her. She’s like this reigning queen of this huge world, and she’s very busy and was on set a lot doing very important things, so I just kind of had my brush-ins when I did and tried not to interfere the rest of the time. But yeah she’s really lovely and very sweet to everybody and very involved in the film, I think probably just as much as anybody else.

Head on over to Twilight Facebook to read the rest!

Love,
UnintendedChoice

Ps: DID YOU SEE THE NEW TRAILER LAST NIGHT??? Don’t worry we’re gonna break it down soon!
