The Twilight fansites New Face Fridays series continues. Meet Judi Shekoni who plays Zafrina of the Amazon Coven. Also check out Zafrina’s full story in our character bios. Judi was a HUGE fan of the book before getting cast. She really loves being a part of the Twilight Saga.

Could you talk about what it was like the first time you saw yourself fully in costume? There are some wonderful studio stills that were released of you and Tracey [Heggins] together in costume.

Yes, the first time I saw myself fully in costume was overwhelming. It was kind of hypnotic and you can’t stop staring at yourself in the mirror. It was just kind of overwhelming. I don’t think I’ve ever been in that position in my life, where I had so many people who are great at what they do, all come together and work on this project as one entity. It was really breathtaking. As it was happening with the costume tests and make up tests that when it finally came together, it was all of a process, and it was very rewarding.

Will we get to see some of Zafrina’s illusions in Breaking Dawn Part 2?

I don’t know if I’m allowed to talk about that. [laughs] I mean, we know the character has a special power. I don’t know if I can talk about that to be honest. I’m so sorry.

You can catch the rest of this great interview with Judi on Breaking Dawn Movie.
