Jamie Campbell-Bower Carrying a Large Torch in Breaking Dawn

Jamie Campbell Bower told Zap-It about one of the downsides to playing Caius:

“I have this big, flaming torch in the last movie,” Campbell Bower tells Zap2it, “and it was one of those things you look at on the first day and you think, ‘Yeah, I am going to be so badass with this!’ — and by the end of filming, it was, ‘God, I HATE this thing, I never want to see it ever again!’

“That torch was just so heavy it was ridiculous, and I had been holding Excalibur for the past six months of ‘Camelot,’ so my arm was getting bigger, but that big bronze torch must have weighed, I don’t know, 400 pounds or something. I was glad to be rid of it.

“I’ll let the fans have that one, because they love that kind of stuff.”

  1. Well, he DOES play Caius, the most badass and repulsive member of the Volturi.

    A large torch??? Is this supposed to be the devise he kills Irina with? The small, silver thing that fits in his hand so much so that Bella can’t tell what it is until he lights it?? If so, could it be any more of a departure from the book??? Once again, the movie gets it wrong. Guess by now I should be neither surprised nor disappointed. It’s just par for the course.

  3. Movies are interpretations of the books, not direct book to screen translations. I don’t know why people are constantly surprised when things change in the jump to film.

      And obviously, I feel Rosenberg interpreted it wrong. My opinion & my right to have one & my right to voice it. Oh, and…I’m not “surprised,” just disappointed…again.

      And I understand that certain things must change to make the movie flow better or to condense the time. It seems to me that Rosenberg usually picks the most illogical things to change…like the small, Zippo lighter-type device to a “huge torch,” if that is what it’s meant to be. Doesn’t make sense to me. Of course, I could have it all wrong, and the torch could be for a completely different scene but we’ll have to wait until the movie comes out to see, won’t we?

    Hopefully its for something different, we already know from the EW stills that there Volturi scenes that aren’t in the book. Thanks for the tidbit, Jamie! (Sincerely.)

    • I think that it would be weird if there was a huge torch in the book. Wouldn’t be kinda obvious what’s gonna happen, even more than the standoff possibly turning into a blood bath? (no pun intended, that much.)

      But it’s awesome to know ahead of time so we can brace ourselves and be able to focus on the story. (Mostly the hot guys for me,) 🙂

      Thanks Jamie! 😀

  5. I’ve heard that it shows Alice’s vision of the fight, with some Cullens dying in the fight, some wolves dying, Caius with this thing, and then Edward and Bella eventually killing Aro. She tries to change it by leaving to find Nahuel.
