Justine Wachsberger Spills on Playing Gianna

Dreadcentral.com has an exclusive interview with Justine Wachsberger, who plays Gianna, the Volturi's human secretary who hopes to be turned into a vampire one day:

It was soon after she landed the part in Sorority Row that Wachsberger auditioned for the next chapter in the Twilight Saga, New Moon and landed the role of Gianna, a human who works for a vampire clan called the Volturi (based in Italy). Throughout the Twilight stories, the Volturi play an essential part to the Bella/Edward story – and in a world where humans are not supposed to be aware that vampires exist, Gianna is one character that proves to be the exception.

Wachsberger added, “Gianna was a really interesting character to portray for me. She’s human and has a lot going for her but decides to work for the vampires. You don’t really know much about her motivations and that adds a lot of mystery to her, which I really loved.
