So what do you think of Jamie as King Arthur?
We thought we’d start doing a regular feature called Twilight Tweets. There are now so many cast members on Twitter, we thought we do a weekly round up of the most interesting stuff. Also we need a cute graphic for this regular feature. If anyone would like to make us one, we’d really appreciate it!
Erik Odom who plays Peter in response to a fan asking if he was excited, “Trust me, my walls are covered in bounce marks…and yes, I’ve been talking with my mate Charlotte (Valorie Curry) often…:). He also mentioned that he is currently in LA, but shortly heading to Baton Rouge.
Guri Weinberg who plays Stefan is already in Baton Rouge. We had a little Twitter chat with him telling him our nickname for the characters of Vladimir and Stefan—Creeptastic 1 & 2. He liked the name and said he’d tell Noel Fisher who plays Vladimir. He also promised, “Will do. I am going to post some photos of cast on our off-time, I will try and get one of us looking especially creepy.”
The cast is very limited in what they are allowed to say about the specifics of the production, but Guri did state the following:
- “The BD costume designer, MIchael Wilkinson, did an amazing job with all the characters. So many covens and time periods to handle…”(Cameron Bright also made similar comments)
- Bill Condon is SO passionate about BD that I imagine the crew is the best of the best.
- I met the special effects guy…he’s from Avatar. I was excited and a little star struck.
- I get asked a lot about the cast of Twilight. They are so down to earth, I was surprised. They totally deserve their success.
- I’ve met most of them at a dinner in Baton Rouge for the cast, writers and producers. I was personally a fan of Peter’s.(we are assuming he means Facinelli)
- So, now that BD filming is a week away, I am starting to get a little nervous. I think if I mess this up, BD fans will kill me! Good point, I get more than one take for scenes…plus, I could always blame Noel…;) Noel and I are VERY excited about one particular scene.
- (In response to being asked if he has seen the movies)Yep, I’ve seen them all, I like just about anything that involves vampires, that’s the “creepy” in me. I think I liked Eclipse best so far but BD will definitely be the best (OK, maybe I am biased)
- (In response to being asked if he has met Mackenzie Foy who plays Renesmee)I have met her, she is the most adorable, intelligent little girl I have ever met. I absolutely will post pics. She is sweet, adorable, really smart and stealing the cast’s hearts right and left.
- I have met Kristen, she is very kind and unassuming.
- I think Noel is really great, Lee is an amazing actor and Rami is also great…but don’t tell them I said this.
Judi Shekoni who plays Zafrina Is fully into learning about Brazil, where her character comes from. She’s been asking Brazilian fans for things she should know.She also tweeted out her motto, “ps My motto for life has always been : dont follow the path create your own and leave a trail … guess thats what twitter is… :)”
Andrea Gabriel who plays Kebi is a seasoned actress (She played Nadia on LOST) but some industry items are new to her. She tweeted, “First all night shoot ever! Oh and turns out that stuff about me being a night owl is only true if I am in bed and watching bad television. Vampire schedule is in effect… I am hanging out all night going to sleep at around 6 a.m. and waking up around 1. Is that a good thing?” Also Baton Rouge people might want to Tweet her and help her out because she having a little trouble with location items, “Oh where oh where to do laundry? Oh where oh where to find a CVS? Ah life on location.”
Cameron Bright is happy to be in Louisiana because one of his best friends lives there. As for his wardrobe, he is in full agreement with Guri Weinberg, “Holy wardrobe Batman! Wait til you all see this movie. Gonna have too, coz we can’t tell you anything…muahahahaha”
Charlie Bewley is looking forward to being in three locations, “In Louisiana for the whole of the Winter. It’s gunna be fun, cause there’s no other choice … home in UK for Xmas NYE:NYC” Charlie and Jamie Campbell-Bower had a very British humor conversation on their bringing their balls with them, and playing with them on their downtime—get your minds out of the gutter—their footballs and rugby balls. Charlie also has a film at Sundance, see an excellent article at TwiExaminer
Lisa Howard who plays Sibohan is doing her prep work, “Re-watching New Moon… Heading down to Baton Rouge soon. I’ve got to prepare :-)”
Check out the Xcerts site to learn more about this collaboration.
Jamie Campbell Bower tweeted about this the other day and now we have more information. Jamie, who has a band of his own called The Darling Buds, is also a fan of the band in the band Xcerts. Well the guys in the Xcerts found out, and to make a long story short, Jamie appears in their new video that’s scheduled to make it’s appearance on August 25th. The group sent over some screen grabs of Jamie in the video.
According to the press release:
‘The Xcerts new video for new single ‘Young (Belane)’ will be premiered tomorrow 25th August at 5pm exclusively through http://www.thexcertsband.com. The video features famous actor and fan of the band Jamie Campbell Bower who has starred in Twilight, Sweeny Todd and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I and II to name only a few of his films!… Speaking of his involvement in the video Jamie has said “being able to be involved with a band who are striving for greatness and have genuine musical talent was an honour. Lets face it, how much more of Pixie Lott can we take?”.”
Screen Terrier is reporting that Jamie Campbell Bower will start filming a ten part TV series based on the story of Camelot. Bower will play King Arthur opposite Tamsin Egerton as Guinevere. The series is being produced by the same filmmakers who brought The Tudors to Showtime. We have no news if this is another Showtime series, but that’s what we’re guessing.
Jamie Campbell Bower’s band The Darling Buds (not to be confused with the old Catherine Zeta Jone TV series by the same name) played at the Macbeth in London last night.
“It’s official, HBO has given the go ahead for the upcoming series Game of Thrones based on the book series “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin. Talk of the pilot being picked up has been floating around the rumor mill for about a year now but things didn’t become official until March 2nd…HBO has requested a total of ten episodes, including the existing pilot. Filming is said to resume this June, locations include Northern Ireland and Morocco. Although the number of actual seasons is dependant on ratings, it’s said each season will cover the storyline of at least one book.”
It’s one thing to camp out to see the Twilight actors in Los Angeles. Even in November, you don’t have to worry about brutal temperatures and snow. It get to be maybe 50 degrees at night, and given usual weather patterns, even rain is iffy. However camping out for the BAFTAs or for Remember Me requires dedication on a whole new level.
According to OK and reports we grabbed from the RPAtzNewsTwitter fans lined up for the BAFTAs over 24 hours early in brutal 28 degree temperatures. That’s a bit nippy even for the UK. With the Remember Me premiere in New York City a week from today one can only imagine how many will line up all bundled up. Temperatures on a New York City sidewalk in February are going to be daunting at best.
“Hysterical Twi-hards slept overnight outside the Royal Opera House in London to secure their place alongside the red carpet after learning that four of the film’s stars would attend.
And as the first to arrive, Anna Kendrick received one heck of a reception as she signed posters and photographs.
She was followed by Jamie Campbell Bower, who – after chatting with fans – spent most of his time alongside girlfriend Bonnie Wright.
Kristen Stewart was next to arrive and spent more time with the fans than anyone, making sure she could give out as many autographs as she could.
Last to arrive was Robert Pattinson, who was greeted by screams and chants of: “We want Rob!” coming from the sidelines.
After arriving late, Robert didn’t spend long signing autographs and was quickly ushered inside to take his seat before he could reach the rest of the crowd.”
OK has a great video of the arrivals and fans.
In honor of the Best of British Talent, InStyle.UK held their annual BAFTA party. Jamie Campbell Bower was there along with his Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows co-star, Bonnie Wright. The magazine featured all the hottest British stars in a ten page spread in this month’s issue. You can also watch a video of the photo shoot, which not only includes footage of Jamie and Bonnie, but also of their other Potter co-star, Rupert Grint.
According to the Academy the film has made the short list of nominees for foreign language films and now just has to make the final cut.
“The shortlist will be winnowed down to the five nominees by specially invited committees in New York and Los Angeles. They will spend Friday, January 29, through Sunday, January 31, viewing three films each day and then casting their ballots.
The 82nd Academy Awards nominations will be announced on Tuesday, February 2, 2010, at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater.”
Keeping our fingers crossed for Jamie, and of course for Anna Kendrick (they don’t give short lists in her category).
