Patrick Brennan Talks About Breaking Dawn, Casting, and Fandom

While at the Creation Entertainment Official Twilight Convention in Nashville in March we had the chance to sit down and talk with Patrick Brennan, who plays Liam in Breaking Dawn.  This was Patrick’s first ever convention and he was overwhelmed by the love and support he felt from the Twilight fandom!  As the son of Eileen Brennan (Clue, Private Benjamin) Patrick grew up around Hollywood.  He even told us a story while we were setting up about being taken out of school to go to the set for Clue and hanging out with some of the cast members.  But none of that put any kind of damper on his humility and gratitude for being a part of the Twilight Saga as you will see in this interview.

You will need to turn the volume up all the way for this one.  We had limited space and time for the interview.  This took place while everyone was getting ready for their photo ops in the next room so there is quite a bit of background noise that we apologize for!  Still, we feel this is a great introduction for the fans to get to know Patrick.  He is going to be at several stops of the Official Twilight Convention along the way.  Your next chance to see him is at the Arlington convention April 15 – 17.

Our thanks go to Creation Entertainment for allowing us to film the interview and to Patrick Brennan for taking the time to talk to us.  You can follow Patrick on Twitter at @thePatBrennan.
