Daniel Cudmore Talks About Fight Scene With Rob
Cudmore’s character Felix is a Volturi thug whose day-to-day job is “tearing apart other vampires”.
He says Felix is a nasty piece of work, but a joy to play.
“He’s an angry vampire, he doesn’t really get much respect, and he’s been around for thousands of years … and he’s just really, really good at what he does,” Cudmore said.
“It’s a fun character – it’s fun to play someone dark, who goes on the animal side and enjoys it.”
The physical role included a fight scene with Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward.
Pattinson is a heartthrob to Twilight fans the world over, but Cudmore said the handsome actor was keen to do as much of his own stunt work as possible.
“Rob’s a great guy, he’s really game for anything,” Cudmore said.
“He was nervous at first, because he was like, `you know I’m not the most athletic guy out there, I don’t think I’m going to be able to do this’.
“After rehearsing for a few hours he was really, really having a good time with it. He had a blast.”
