New Face Friday: Meet Marlane Barnes as Maggie!

Continuing along with our New Face Friday series, today the fansites catch up with Marlane Barnes who plays Maggie! If you need a refresher about her character, check out the Lexicon’s own character bios here.

Q: Your character Maggie knows when people are telling lies. Are you good at telling when people are lying to you in real-life?

Marlane:I like to think I’m a pretty good judge of character now. I feel like that’s one of the things that acting has done for me is you get to see when people are acting.

Q: Did Stephenie Meyer talk with you at all about your character?

Marlane:You know, I actually didn’t talk much with Stephenie about my character on set, I know that Lisa [Howard] did, but yeah I didn’t really get a chance to do that. I was interested that when I read the – cause you know she put out that comprehensive fan book – and I was interested to see that a lot of the choices I had made for Maggie were pretty similar to what she already had in mind, so I feel like we just kind of both knew… that we were on the same page.

We also had the chance to interview Marlane on the Breaking Dawn Part 1 Red Carpet. Check it out!

Marlene Barnes Interview: What Drew Her to Twilight

The Pattinson Post has an interview up with Marlane Barnes who plays Maggie in Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Were you familiar with the Twilight series before you got the part? How was it for you, as an actor, to come into the last movie of the Twilight series?

I actually was not! I’m always the last person to know about things in pop culture. But, before I auditioned, I read synopses on fan sites and watched the first two movies to get to know the world. When I was actually cast, I was floored. I mean, it’s such a huge franchise and the fan base is so involved that I did worry at first that I wouldn’t be what everyone was hoping for! But, then you just have to trust the production team and yourself and do your best.

What was it like working with the director, Bill Condon on Breaking Dawn?

Bill is a very sweet, intelligent, and considerate man. He was great to work with, because I really felt like he was invested in everyone’s experience and input on the film. He created a collaborative environment on set, which was great considering how many of us were new to the franchise. I also loved the direction that he took Part One, so I am very excited to see Part Two!
