Scene Weekly Interviews Angela Sarafyan

Scene Weekly, the magazine of the growing film industry in Louisiana, had the chance to interview Angela Sarayfan who plays Tia in Breaking Dawn.

Q: How have you enjoyed working on Breaking Dawn?

A: To be quite honest, I have no full grasp of the enormity of this film. I  know it in theory but I haven’t experienced it.

Q: Many of Twilight’s cast members are now very closely identified with their characters and it may be difficult to be perceived differently in the future. Are you at all concerned about that?

A: I don’t ever go into work thinking that I’ll be defined by a certain character for the rest of my life. I don’t know if Kristen and Rob will be forever recognized for that. I’m sure they may be for a lot of kids and a lot of people. I don’t know honestly what the future holds because I really live in the moment and kind of deal with everything on a daily basis. And so, in terms of the outside world and how they see things, I guess I just have
no idea about that.
Q: One thing it will hopefully do is open up opportunities for you. Is there an actor who’s career you respect or aspire to?

A: Whenever I read a script or I read a part, I like to be inspired by the person on the page and the character.  I like to see if I’m inspired by them and what I can give them.  It usually happens instantaneously so I don’t really know if I’m gonna follow this person’s career or that person’s career. It reveals itself with each experience. It’s kind of unpredictable. There are plenty of incredible actors that I love. Anna Magnani is a favorite of mine. She’s an Italian actress. I completely love Meryl Streep as well. And there are so many. I look at Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro and I look at Al Pacino and the list goes on and on…Marlon Brando or even Klaus Kinski.”

Angela Sarafyan’s American Animal Debuts at SXSW

Angela Sarafyan who plays Tia in Breaking Dawn is at the SXSW Film Festival to promote her film American Animal. They have just released the trailer. (trailer below: warning it is not currently rated,but in our opinion it would be an R trailer for nudity, not work/school safe! ).

According to their press kit, this is the summary of the film:

“Jimmy is a terminally ill young man. He is also quite eccentric, bordering on plain old crazy, and starting today he has decided that he is ‘happy’ and no longer sick. Jimmy’s roommate James is a healthy, dreamy young man. They’re best friends. They live together. They don’t do much of anything and they seem very happy that way. Today, they have a couple of female friends over to their downtown Los Angeles loft for just another day of drinks, drugs, board games and casual sex, among other things. All seems well. But trouble arises when it gets revealed that James will be leaving for a new job in the morning. Jimmy, feeling betrayed, is not pleased by this development. He sees it as nothing short of the destruction of the perfect little world that they’ve set up, and a classic, humorous battle of wills ensues as James prepares for the real world and Jimmy falls deeper and deeper into his world of illness, isolation, madness and make-believe.”

Next Movie Talks With Angela Sarafyan About SXSW and Breaking Dawn

Angela Sarafyan who plays Tia in Breaking Dawn is doing some press to promote her indie flick,American Animal ,that is headed to the South By Southwest (AKA SXSW) film festival. Next Movie just caught up with her:

“Angela Sarafyan is on top of her game and playing the field. In the last year alone, the young actress has dabbled in TV (co-starring with Colin Hanks on “The Good Guys”), big-budget tentpoles (playing Tia in “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”) and somehow finding time to shoot an indie or two.

Next week, Sarafyan will be at SXSW in Austin, Texas to premiere her latest film “American Animal,” written, directed and co-starring Matt D’Elia. In the movie, Sarafyan plays Angela, a friend of Jimmy (D’Elia) who, along with Jimmy’s roommate and her friend (also named Angela), becomes sucked into his madcap world of pop culture and personal torture. Part comedy, part drama and like nothing you’d expect.

Sarafyan talked to us about the innovative process of working on “American Animal,” along with details on why shooting a “Twilight” movie isn’t that different then a tiny, micro-budget indie.”

Angela Sarayfan Teen Magazine Interview During Troix Photo Shoot

Angela Sarafyan who plays Tia  just did a photoshoot for Troix Magazine and talked with Teen Magazine about Breaking Dawn during a break in shooting.

Angela Sarafyan Poses for Troix Magazine

Angela Sarafyan is the latest Twilight star to pose for Troix magazine. They have previously had Christian Serratos and Jackson Rathbone. In fact Jackson Rathbone was on the cover of their inaugural issue.

In keeping with what seems to be the signature Troix style, the shoot is very stylized in a period glam setting. It looks like they were aiming for a Great Gatsby type of thing featuring a late 1920′s – early 1930′s sultry vamp (no pun intended).

You can see another photo on their Troix Facebook page. The issue comes out in April.

Angela Sarafyan (Tia) Talks Breaking Dawn Experience With MTV

MTV caught up with Angela Sarafyan, who plays Tia, and she only had great things to say about her set experience and castmates.  In the photo left is Lexiconer  Adonis’ version of what she might look like as a red-eyed vampire. According to MTV

“I went on-set and met Bill Condon and he is truly such a great, great person,” she said. “I’m honestly humbled by the fact that he is kind and generous and, with the enormity of this film, has been so graceful about giving every actor their time. He immediately put me on a great starting point. We were all in this incredible Egyptian casbah in Baton Rouge [back in November] and it was quite magnificent. It was quite easy. It’s not as pressure-filled as you’d think. It felt like an independent project where everyone’s having a nice time, no one’s pressured. It’s been that way almost every day that we’ve worked on this.”

Check out the full report on MTV.

So what do you think of the news?
