Chaske Spencer in Vanity Fair

VF.com: How did you get the part of Wolf Pack leader, Sam Uley?

Chaske Spencer: It was one of the weirdest auditions I’ve done. We put it on tape, and usually the process is: you meet the casting director, get a callback, then you meet the producer and director. This just went straight from tape. I auditioned for all of the parts of the Wolf Pack; they called me back and told me what part I had. Also, I didn’t really know who [the character] was because I didn’t know much about Twilight. Then I figured it out and said, “Wow, that’s a really good part.” It’s amazing. I’ve never gotten a part like that before.

Once you got the part, did you go back and read the books?

Yeah, I started with New Moon. Then I started dabbling in Eclipse because there’s a lot of back-story to my character. I really tried to relate to those characters, do my job … and then go to the gym.

  1. good interview. It’s nice to be able to get to know some of the wolf pack at last. And so great that finally these young NA actors are getting a big break. I’m happy that was a requirement for the role, rather than getting someone who ‘looks’ NA. Yeah. Hope Chaske lands even better roles in the future.

  2. Great Interview.
    I can’t wait to see this up on the big screen. (:

    They sure did pick some mighty fine boys for the wolf pack.
    I can’t wait to meet some of them in nashville at the twilight convention.

  3. I’ve loved every interview in this 3/3 part series. Alex, Kiowa and Chaske all seem like such down to earth people.I also can’t help but notice similarities between the characters they are portraying and their individual personas. I believe they nailed the casting of these roles. I’m glad they ‘get’ the importance of who their characters are and what they represent. Finally, we have some strong roles for Native Americans. I can hear the pride come off the page and I want to hear more. I wish I’ve loved every interview in this 3/3 part series.

    I love the wolf pack! These actors seem to be so happy that they get to be in a big movie. I wish them all the best. And I strongy agree with Arazcal, it seems like all these actors fit their character to the T. I feel they have done an outstanding job getting the right people to play the right roles.

  5. I always enjoy getting to know the rest of the cast in this phenomenal Saga and I’m sure Rob is more than happy to not always have the spotlight thrown on him…LOL!

    The Wolfpack are really cool (AND hot!) and it’s great how Stephenie Meyer has incorporated Native Americans into the storyline so seamlessly and beautifully…more power to her and the guys! :)

  6. This is a great interview, as are a lot of his. He’s such a genuine guy and hasn’t let any of the new found mega fame go to his head. Not to mention he is a LIFE saver for coming to the Peoria hockey game last night in place of Kellan. He was absolutely fantastic and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
