Michael Sheen chats about Aro in Breaking Dawn

After a premature announcement of his involvement in the upcoming film Dark Shadows, Michael Sheen took a few minutes to chat with Collider about his continuing role as Aro in Breaking Dawn: Parts 1 & 2 of the Twilight Saga.  Here’s what he had to say…

What can you say about what you’ll be doing in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn?

MICHAEL SHEEN: It’s the same part that I played before – Aro.

Was there anything you got to discover in playing him this time around, that you hadn’t learned the last time you played him?

SHEEN: He’s more of a presence in these films than he was in New Moon, so I got to explore the character a bit more and probably fleshed it out a bit more. I don’t think that there’s anything that I learned. I just was able to go into the insanity of the character a bit more. I got to show what’s under the surface a bit more this time, which was fun.

How was Bill Condon to work with, as a director?

SHEEN: Bill was wonderful. He was terrific. He’s a very, very friendly, warm person. He obviously has a very varied and interesting body of work, and brought that to bear. He made everyone feel very comfortable. It must be quite hard, coming onto a film where people have already been together for a long time. Each film is a different director and you think, “What’s this one going to be like?” But, everyone really warmed to him and thought he was terrific. I think he did a really good job. It was a huge organizational thing. We had something like 40 new characters being introduced in this film, and the big battle scene took about four or five weeks to film. It was a huge undertaking, and he handled it brilliantly.

When a new director comes on and you already know the characters from having done previous films, do you feel like you know the characters more than the director, or does each director really bring something new out of you?

SHEEN: Personally, I was only on New Moon for two weeks, so it’s not like I got used to it. But, for the other actors, there’s probably a wariness about, “Is this person going to come along and not really get what it is we’re doing, or are they going to try to change it too much?” For a director coming on board, I would imagine there’s the pressure of wanting to make your mark and be different to what other people have done, but at the same time, not wanting to go against the flow of the whole series. I would imagine it’s quite a difficult balance to strike, but everyone seemed very happy on it and seemed to enjoy working with Bill.

What are you going to be doing in Dark Shadows?

SHEEN: I’m not in Dark Shadows.

Was that just misinformation?

SHEEN: No, it was something that got talked about, but it’s not happening. It was a bit premature.

True Blood: Waiting Sucks – the writing’s on the wall…

*** Spoiler in the video below.  Do not click the Play arrow unless you want to get a sneak peek of what’s doing with Arlene and the mystery baby! ***


Creeeeee-py!  Is anyone else a little wigged out about this storyline?  Looks like, true to form, season 4 of True Blood will only follow the main story arc of the corresponding novel (Dead to the World), giving HBO plenty of room to add in more sex, humor, gore, drama, and just general weirdness.

Stay tuned for more Waiting Sucks preview snippets as we count down the days til the TB:S4 premiere!


True Blood: Waiting only sucks ’til June 26th

 

HBO has officially announced the start date for the new season (4) of True Blood.  A fan-made poster caused some initial confusion when it claimed the start date would be June 12, but the official word came the next day, stating that the show’s fourth season would commence on June 26.  That’s a long time to wait – longer than in previous years!  On the sunny side, Executive Producer Gregg Fienberg clarified that there will be no break between episodes this season, allowing the momentum of the show to continue more smoothly!  So waiting might suck for now, but it’ll all be worth it once we get our first glimpse of the new season on the now-much-anticipated 26th of June.

In the mean time, HBO is releasing a series of “Waiting Sucks” videos to keep us all enthralled and tuned in.  I posted one last month featuring Eric; here’s one with Pam, Tara, Lafayette, Jesus, & Marnie (a newbie).  Pam’s bustier is SEXEH!!

(skip this if you don’t want a spoiler!)


Spoiler: True Blood Season 4 – what fans have been hoping for!

WARNING: THIS IS A SPOILER!

Stop reading now if you do NOT want to see a clip of/know about upcoming footage from TB:S4!

Team Eric, rejoice!  It looks like S4 of True Blood is indeed going to be the same storyline as the 4th Sookie Stackhouse (Southern Vampire Chronicles) novel, Dead to the World.  You know, the one where Eric ends up walking naked along Sookie’s road with no memory of who he or anyone else is?  In this clip he’s not naked, just shirtless, (which is surprising, considering HBO doesn’t usually miss an opportunity to show the TB stars in the buff) and the footage is still raw, but if this is for real, then it looks like Sookie & Eric time is definitely on the horizon.  Hooray!

Yes, HBO, waiting does suck!  Make it worth the wait!
