It sounds lame, but I was really concentrating on this job. It was my first American thing so I was pretty focused. I went to Portland for two months before we starting shooting, and I just didn't talk to anybody for ages during the beginning of the shoot. I never went out, but I kind of broke down half way through. I was like, 'Okay, people are starting to think that I'm actually out of my mind now.
I've got a terrible memory—I end up repeating myself quite a lot. The only thing I can remember is that I'm going to repeat myself!
If I go and try to watch a movie by myself I'll be completely transfixed the whole time, concentrating one hundred percent. But if I'm with another person on a date or something, within two minutes I'll be like 'This is rubbish, this is rubbish. We should leave and do something else.' I don't really know why.
I spent a long time trying to figure out how to play (Edward's part) without making a fool out of myself. The whole book is written from Bella's perspective and she's in love with him. I mean, the guy can be anybody — he could be an alien — and you see past everything if you're in love with someone.
I was just taking out my trash and I had, like, 300 cans of Diet Coke. It was just like, 'How did that happen?' I don't even remember buying them. I also like Cinnamon Toast Crunch. My addictions are pretty much the only things I consume.
I went to do my first big movie when I was 17. I was in South Africa for three and half months, and I was by myself.
I'm really afraid of getting hit by cars, like terrified of it. I'm terrified of crossing streets. I'm also very accident-prone...I think people aim for me.
I'm just a big, hard tool.
I was so concerned about looking cool, It's weird seeing them. They are the most famous kids, I kept calling them famous. They're on their way to becoming icons. I used to try to be moody and stuff. I'm really good friends with a lot of people from the film. It was a long time, I was doing it for 11 months.
I'm a big fan of Michael Gambon. I had one scene sitting next to him at the dragon task, and I had no idea what to say to him at all! He was the only person I asked for an autograph the whole way through it!
Yeah. I get on really well with Katie, she's a really cool girl. I don't have many talking scenes (with her). Most of my scenes, like big scenes, are just with Dan. I dance with her, and there's a lot of scenes like holding hands and stuff like that. But I get on really well with her. She's a nice girl.
I don't know. I think he's (Daniel) , just in real life, he's just so far superior to me in terms of desirability, so he didn't really have much of a competition with me. So there wasn't really much joking around. I'd probably cry if he did. If I was Katie, I would definitely go out with him because he's rich and famous, and I'm not really.
Er no, I think Dan could steal anyone from me. If I was a girl I would pick Dan!
We had this bonding week at the begining and I did a lot of improvising with Rupert and he's really, like hes incredibly funny, but just as a real person, because hes funny in the film obviously, but he can do - he's like really versatile doing acting, and Emma as well, she can just, she just does it, shes an actress, she always has been and she's just incredibly intelligent young person
When I was doing scenes like when hes holding my body and stuff I was quite moved by what he was doing and because hes, well hes not that young anymore, but he was quite young, and I was really impressed by it
I sort of identify with him in a couple of ways. Generally, I am quite pleasant. I think he is too, and I think that is one of the basic similarities. Let's see, I've got blond hair, I am relatively sporty. But, I think he is a better person than me.
I hope im not that close to my character, I hate him, I used to hate everbody like Cedric in my school
That is quite difficult. In the book and also my first introduction of the script is like "an absurdly handsome 17-year-old" and it kind of puts you off a little bit, when you're trying to act, and you're trying to get good angles to look good looking and stuff.
Then I got a call the next day from the assistant director saying that they were putting me on a personal training programme. I thought that would be pretty cool, because it would make me take it seriously. It was run by one of the stunt team, who are the most absurdly fit guys inthe world. I can't even do 10 press ups. I did about three weeks of that, and in the end I think he got so bored of trying to force me to do it that he wrote it all down so that I could do it at home.
We had to do this scene looking like heroes diving into the lake. they had a stand-in doing perfect dives on the first take. Then Stan, Clemence, And I tried, but none of us could dive in right, and we all looked really stupid.
There were a couple of times where you think you're swimming towards a guy with a breating apparatus and then you find its just some thing in the water and you're like (imitates freaking out) and then you just know what to do and they film your stupid face just screaming underwater and then everyone starts laughing and its just like, ahh, great
I think the yule ball is more attractive to the girls who read it, I never really thought "Oh I get to go to the ball!
As Dan was doing school at the time I was just sitting by myself for ages and at the time I wanted to be taken really serious as an actor so I used to just sit around just drinking coffee all day and trying to look really intense
I think the most embarrassing part of that was just the normal dancing. When the rock band comes. I think there was two days where the crew was like, "Just dance, just dance.". So, you can't, in a club or whatever...That was really awkward.
