New Faces Friday: MacKenzie Foy


You thought we forgot to feature MacKenzie Foy for New Faces Friday, didn’t you? Well, we didn’t.

But we already featured her interview back in July, so hop on over to that old post to read our sit-down with MacKenzie the adorable: LTT and friends interview MacKenzie Foy.

Guys do you know what is almost live? That’s Normal. That’s right- we didn’t forget about that either (We have more lives these days than we used to so we’re behind on most except for drooling over Damon on Vampire Diaries. Well, UC, that is) But seriously: GET EXCITED. We are. That’s Normal will officially launch 11/1.

Oh and try not to be creeped out by this. You’re welcome:

New Faces Friday: Erik Odom

Dear Erik Odom,
You know we love you. Even though we were fake-mean to you that one time.

And it feels strange introducing you as a New Face. Weren’t you in Breaking Dawn Part 1? You seem to have been around for forever. I’m just gonna change the name real quick to “Old New Faces Friday.” ALSO I have to confess the ONLY thing(s) I remember about Peter are things I read that one time I read Twilight fan fiction (I only read one ever!) and that’s pretty embarrassing:

Here are the first 2 questions with Erik Odom, Twilight Examiner has the rest so hop on over there:

Q: When you walked into Comic-Con [at the end of the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 cast panel], you got some of the biggest shouts out of all the newcomers. How did that feel?

Erik: It was unbelievable. The only thing I could say it compared to was the Part 1 premiere when I walked down the red carpet. It’s just, you try to prepare yourself for it as much as you can, you know maybe the response will be big but maybe it won’t, you try to be ready for
everything … but when it hits you, your knees buckle. I mean my knees buckled. It’s one of the craziest, craziest things. But the fanbase has always been so enthusiastic, so passionate. And I think part of it has always been a combination of people loving the character Peter and just also being on Twitter and being on Facebook and having fans reach out, just trying to interact as much as possible and including the fans as much as you can, you know. Because the fans are what make the fandom what it is.

Q: People love Peter, but they also love Peter with Charlotte. Their relationship’s really special, and I know that that’s something we hope to see on-screen, and I was wondering how far in advance did you meet Valorie [Curry], and you know make it into a rhythm with her and feel like you could portray that on-screen?

Erik: What was great about Valorie, even more so than a lot of the other vampires who I met once we went to Louisiana together, I actually – I didn’t know her personally, but we had a lot of mutual friends in Los Angeles – so through the small world of Facebook, we were able to link up after the whole casting announcement came up, and we actually grabbed lunch before we even started filming, before we left. So, we went to a place in L.A., sat down for about two hours, and after the initial twenty minutes of ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe I’m a part of this; Oh my God I can’t believe I’m a part of this!’ After twenty minutes of us geeking out together about how cool it was, we really dug in and talked about Peter and Charlotte’s relationship and their relationship to the other vampires. You know, because the covens are such an interesting thing, they call the nomads a coven but really it’s Peter and Charlotte versus the world. You know, so we talked about really diving into the relationship, back to Maria [in Eclipse] and back to the newborn army and their relationship with Alice and Jasper, and it was just nice that by the time we got to Louisiana together, we already had the seeds of this relationship planted, you know? It was really nice. I love Valorie.

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.


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!
