Parent’s Examiner: Daniel Cudmore Interview

Kim Sherman, the Parent’s Examiner, interviewed Daniel Cudmore:

“The burning question posed by fans who adore both Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen: Which did you enjoy more- throwing around Wolverine or Edward Cullen?

No question about that one. “I definitely enjoyed throwing around Edward,” Daniel booms. “Wolverine was one toss.”

Daniel went on about working with Robert in the fight scene, and is proud of the fact that Robert took on a lot of the work himself.

“Robert and I worked together on a lot of it. He was a little apprehensive at first, but he enjoyed himself. Robert did one of the main sections of the fight.” Fortunately, Daniel and stunt man Simon had worked together on AVPR previously, so their rapport was intact. “Simon took some pretty hard hits on the ground, especially the ones where I’m throwing him on the floor from six feet above.”

Daniel Cudmore Attends The Age of Stupid Premiere

According to the Vancouver Sun, is about, “The drama-documentary-animation hybrid film [The Age of Stupid] is the latest from Franny Armstrong, director of McLibel, and stars the Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite as an old man living in 2055. As the man watches footage from 2008, he asks why people didn’t act to stop climate change before it was too late.”

Daniel Cudmore walked the the green carpet at the film’s opening in Vancouver and had this to say,

“In Canada we’re behind the times and it’s alarming,” Cudmore said. “You need hard facts to shake people out of their coma. I think young people fear they won’t be heard, but that’s totally false. We’ve got a strong voice.”

Daniel Cudmore: Lexicon New Moon Interview

We recently had the opportunity to interview Daniel Cudmore who plays Felix in The Twilight Saga; New Moon. Dan has appeared in a number of films, but is probably most widely recognized for his portrayal of Colossus in the X-Men movies.

How would you characterize the New Moon audition process?
It was very unexpected for me. I had auditioned for one character and was called about a call-back for another character which somehow I had no idea about. Fortunately, I couldn’t make the call-back and had a chance to get it right and put it on tape. A week later I got the good news.

How would you characterize the make-up and costuming process?  Some of the actors have had difficulty with the contacts.  Did you find them difficult to use?  Did the costume help you find the character?
I found the whole process a lot of fun, I wear contacts normally so it wasn’t uncomfortable. The whole costumes when put together were so cool, and really helped with getting right into that character. It also helped that my skin was pretty much the same color as a vampire’s after a nice Vancouver winter. [Read more...]
