MTV interviewed Jamie Campbell Bower at Comic-con, and Jamie is so much fun:
MTV: Tell us about your character in "New Moon."Read the rest here.
Bower: I play Caius, who is the leader of the Volturi. They are a coven and effectively run the vampire community. They make the laws up. It's me, Michael Sheen who plays Aro, and a guy called Christopher Heyerdahl who plays Marcus. We try to kill Bella and convince Edward to come and live with us — because Peter's character [Carlisle Cullen] had come and lived with us before — and we love the Cullens deeply.
MTV: Director Chris Weitz is new to most of these guys, but so are you. What kind of discussions did you two newbies have before filming began?
Bower: He gave us a lot of freedom. We sat down prior to it and just bounced ideas around. The backstory for Caius is already there, as it is for the Volturi. It's all fairly self-explanatory. We sat down and I said, "I think he's got this deep-rooted anger. He doesn't have a power, and he's pretty pissed off about that, because the rest of them have powers." And then, once we got on set, he was just like, "Go for it." We'd do a couple of takes of the same thing, and then we'd change it up and I'd do something crazy.
P.S. We already think RobWard is hot. How much hotter would he be if he was speaking with his British accent? Yeah, yeah, I know Edward's from Chicago... (Lorabell, who is from the UK, probably thinks I'm on crack now)
Don't worry, TCA, I get it - I suddently become much more attractive in NYC than London! Plus, Irish accents have the same effect on me and they're all about the "craic"... get it?!
