Finance Foodie Interviews Michael Welch

Michael Welch is going to be attending a fan cruise that leaves from Seattle and goes to Alaska. The Finance Foodie blog got to talk to Mike in advance of his departure:

Q: Will you talk about filming Eclipse–was it tougher than filming the other two in some way?
MW: Yeah, filming Eclipse was definitely challenging. Each film definitely presents its own challenge. The main thing to really figure out is how to work with these same characters with different directors. That has really been an interesting challenge because these three directors, they are all brilliant but they are all very different in how they approach filmmaking and working with actors…so that has been kind of interesting. And it’s also been kind of interesting for me to deal with the character challenge of Mike Newton–because at this point, in Eclipse, he is not really going after Bella anymore. He has finally come to terms with the fact that he and Bella will probably never work out romantically and I think that anybody going after a girl who is being courted by both Taylor Lautner and Rob Pattinson would come to the same decision! It is no shame losing out to those guys!”

Michael Welch Spends a Week With the USO

The USO is a special organization. It provides, among other things, entertainment for our troops and their families. Anyone who is in the military can tell you that money is tight; servicemen do not make tremendous salaries. So, to have a Hollywood star come and entertain is quite the treat, especially when you are a continent away from home!

In talking about his visit, Michael Welch said  “Traveling with the USO and meeting military families has been a new experience for me, and one that I will never forget. Hearing firsthand what it’s like to have a loved one deployed is humbling and it makes me realize how much military families sacrifice, and how grateful I am for their service.”

See more at the USO site.

One of our favorite stories of all time, is when Peter Facinelli signed Twilight DVD’s at Fort Lewis and missed his plane because he refused to leave until every military family who wanted to see him had that chance.

Kudos to both Mike and Peter!
