  1. Interesting.

    That’s how I imagine their accents: English, but with slight Italian accents (such as them pronouncing certain letters a bit roughly, etc).

  2. Actually, I think British accents are a great idea! I was wondering if they might try it, since Michael Sheen and Jamie Campbell Bower are British.

    I think it will make the Volturi sound very sophisticated (and ancient, from the way Jamie describes it). They’re so old that it’s not really necessary for them to have Italian accents, since they existed before Italian accents ever did! Kind of like how Carlisle can blend in as “American” even though he should be talking like a British guy from the 1600’s, lol.

    • I know this comment is almost a decade old…. But there is so much stupidity per sentence here, that I thought it was worth it. I’m actually wondering if you became less of a moron or more of one after all this time.

      Why would a British accent sound more sophisticated than Italian? Even that is a matter of preference though…. But thinking that a British accent is older than an Italian accent takes such a staggering degree of stupidity that I think you deserve to be slapped. In fact, you are almost as stupid as whoever was responsible for making Italian vampires have British accents.

      This makes you a moron.

  3. Oh, and I’m glad they don’t have American accents, because that would seem odd coming from European vampires, who are more likely to have learned English from, well, the English. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve heard speaking English with an English accent is a pretty common choice for foreign language learners outside America. If that’s true, it’s definitely plausible for an Italian vampire to choose to speak it with one.

    In any case, it should be interesting to hear in November! I’m excited to see the parts in Volterra. The details in the article about what I’m guessing is the tourist scene sound very promising, in a creepy sort of way. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Hey

    I was wondering if on any interviews from MTV.com you could write a bit about what they say. Those of us who live in the UK (me!!) and prob other countries are not allowed to watch mtv.com vidoes and Mtv.co.uk doesn’t have most of the ones you post!!

    So every post with Mtv.com videos we cant watch ๐Ÿ™

    Cheers,

    Laura
    p.s Kat- yes most people from Europe speak with an English acent (rather than american) when they speak English!

  5. he said the volturi were like 200 years old. arent they heaps older than that!?

    i cant wait.. everyones really looked into how the characters should act ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. He said around 2,000, not 200.

  7. Happy Birthday Renesmee! It’s her Birthday today!
