‘New Moon’ Interview and Video

nm aro posterMore Twilight news! Yes, even more. Ok, it’s not so much news as it’s just more goodies for fans. MTV recently interviewed Michael Sheen, who plays the Volturi vampire Aro in the upcoming Twilight film, New Moon. MTV also premiered the latest New Moon trailer, which shows even more of the flick. The new trailer gives us a much better look at the Volturi. But first the interview…

MTV: Michael, at MTV News, we’re obsessed with all things “Twilight,” and we recently premiered the new trailer. Have you seen it?

Michael Sheen: Yes, I did see it. I was amazed to see I was in there.

MTV: Have they shown you a cut of the film?

Sheen: No, nothing yet. I’m very excited about seeing it, as most people are — especially with my daughter, who is a big fan. I look forward to going to the premiere with her.

MTV: You must have a whole new fanbase now.

Sheen: I’m very big with the under-12s. They’re very big fans of “Frost/Nixon.”

MTV: Tell us about your character in “New Moon.”

Sheen: I play Aro. For people who aren’t fans of the books, I play one of the Volturi — somebody described it as being like the royal family of vampires, which I guess is a good description. He’s very calming on the surface, very gentle and soft on the surface. But beneath, he is a psychopathic killer. … He’s a great character, and I had a great time doing it.

MTV: When will we see Aro next?

Sheen: Well, he doesn’t appear in “Eclipse.” He appears again in “Breaking Dawn.”

Have they told you to set aside some time for that one?

Who knows? Nothing has been spoken about yet.

MTV: We can also see some teases of a dark Dakota Fanning in the “New Moon” trailer. How is she in the film?

Sheen: She’s fantastic. She’s scary as hell, but she looks so sweet. She’s got a great character there. People are really going to love her.

MTV: You’ve worked with all kinds of actors. But is there anything quite like working with the maelstrom that is Robert Pattinson?

Sheen: [Laughs.] I don’t know how he copes with it all. I certainly wouldn’t have been able to deal with it when I was his age. He and Kristen are really amazing. They’re fully committed to what they’re doing, and I wish them all the best.

What’s the one “New Moon” scene you’re most excited to see come together?

Sheen: There’s a great scene that involves all of them. Robert, Kristen — Ashley is there as well. All the Volturi are there, and we’re on this amazing set, and there’s a lot of effects and stuff. I think that will be amazing.

There you go Twilight fans; the Aro interview, giving you even more to be excited about. And on that note, here is the third trailer for New Moon, which gives us a much more intense and awesome look at the movie…

  2. Hi to everybody! I’m really very excited about New Moon and looking forward to seeing that second part of the famous Twilight Saga. I’ve already seen the trailer and some pics from the film and I’m sure it will be super. I also want to thank beforehand all those who worked at this film. They have done a really good job!

  3. those volturi really look freaky, don’t they?
    Hope I don’t stumble across one of them in the middle of the night. Hope I don’t stumble across vampires in general…

  4. omgsh! I would love to “stumble” across any vampire! I dont even care if its at night or not!lol;) Like im so freaking obsessed wiith vampires that its not even funny! Yet these vampires are somehow hotter than the ones in most films. (except for Queen Of The $@%#&*

    1. Ah, but what you don’t get is that the Cullens are an unusual exception. If you happened to ‘stumble’ across a vamp they would be like the volturi, very dead, evil and bloodthirsty. Can I say deranged? I really lurve that word..
