Michael Sheen talks to Young Hollywood about his time as Aro and the memories he has of being part of the Twilight phenomenon.
The Hollywood Reporter has a few bits of interview from Michael Sheen, Taylor Lautner, and Bill Condon about their reactions to the surprise ending of the film. They edited out the moment when Michael Sheen nearly spoils it, but just in case you haven’t seen the film yet, you might not want to watch this just yet.
These interviews are from the press junket and both feature Michael Sheen dishing the motivation behind Aro’s laugh and over all behavior. I have a sick place in my heart for Aro, and I figured others might as well!
I do believe that Clevver TV was the only outlet to get a video of Michael Sheen from the premiere posted today! If any of our readers know of anotehr other videos of Michael gave, let us know!
Don’t you just love Michael playing evil?
Michael Sheen and Craig Ferguson are amazing whenever they are together!
Michael Sheen is the new ambassador for this Welsh group. He has tireless supported multiple Welsh groups over the years to bring tourism and a positive image to his home area. Michael is from Port Talbot, Wales.
Usually when you see these celebrity doodle auctions the work frankly isn’t that good. They can be fun pieces of nostalgia, but a lot of people’s talents are better suited to the screen than anything to do with drawing.
So it seems that Michael Sheen is the exception to our experience! Michael Sheen can draw! Who knew?
According to Michael Sheen UK:
The US National Doodle Dayorganisation have a doodle from Michael Sheen up for auction on Ebay. The drawing shows a detailed view of New York from the top floor of Queens Medical Centre. Other celebrities contributing this year are Gillian Anderson, Rowan Atkinson, Rosanne Barr, and Jeff Bridges.
Back in 2010 Michael submitted a doodle to the UK Doodle Day charity, and the auction raised £255 for his picture alone.
At the time of this posting, the high bid (which we are sure will change) is up to $89.00. You can enter your bid here
Bill Condon announced to the fandom that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart would be returning to Vancouver to shoot additional material. It now looks like Michael Sheen will be there too. Jack Morrissey, Bill Condon’s partner revealed the following on his regular podcast.
“It’s less than a week, and we already know that Rob and Kristen will be there; I just tweeted yesterday that yes, there will be wigs involved, but I did blur the line by pointing out that Michael Sheen will also doubtless be spotted throughout the Vancouver airport to reprise for one last time his part of Aro the leader of the Volturi . . . As Bill mentioned in his letter to the fans, Rob and Kristen will be donning their gold contacts one last time . . . She’s donning both [red and gold], and Michael Sheen will be donning red.”
Morrissey further clarified that the shots being done do not involve dialogue and are all items from the second until. Usually second until is background footage, or things not involving one-on-one dialogue with the principals. In other words some typical examples would be long shots, action sequences, sweeping vistas. For example, during our New Moon set visit we saw Chris Weitz shooting the scene where Sam brings Bella back to Charlie. This was first unit director work. On that very same night, the second unit was in a different location shooting Victoria running through the woods. The was no dialogue but a lot of hoisting Rachelle Lefevre and her stunt double up and down in wire rigs.
As we previously reported, shooting additional footage has occurred on every film and is fairly common in the industry. Catherine Hardwicke reshoot part of the meadow scene in California after filming had wrapped. Chris Weitz shot the Cullen flashback scene after filming had wrapped. David Slade had to reshoot portions of the tent scene and. And not exactly a reshoot, but Bill Condon ended up shooting in the Virgin Islands on the last days of production when stormy weather mucked up honeymoon shots in Brazil.
You can see a summary of the podcast here on Twilight Examiner and you can listen to then entire podcast (not it’s not PG-13 and you probably want to skip the Smodcast intro if you are at work, it wouldn’t be considered worksafe at my place of business) here.
EDITED: I just spoke with Jack Morrissey who read your comments and he believes he spoke out of turn by stating Kristen would be in gold contacts. he now believes it’s red contacts only.
