Jamie Campbell-Bower Talks New Moon
Exclusive: A Volturi fills us in

30 June 2009  |  Written by Emily Phillips

Jamie Campbell-Bower will be lucky to escape the next couple of years with his hearing intact: he's in New Moon and Harry Potter 7 and 8, placing him at the very epicentre of the most massive fanquakes the planet has ever seen. The actor was in  surprisingly calm form at the Public Enemies premiere, though, where he told us about his role as a leader of the Volturi in the second instalment of the vampire saga.  "His name is Caius and he is perpetually angry, I believe. He's really upset because he, unlike the rest of the Volturi, doesn't have any powers."

Bummer. Luckily, Campbell-Bower can fall back on the rest of the Italian vampiric clan, including Michael Sheen's head honcho Aro, to bring the pain. So how much did the British up-and-comer know about the Volturi before he signed up? "Obviously I read the books and did a lot of research, it's a fanbase movie - the books were so big. There is a definite pressure there to perform it as it was envisioned to be."

Sticking to the New Moon omerta, Campbell-Bower was keeping frustratingly schtum on whether New Moon would feature any surprises that didn't appear in the book ("You'll have to wait until November!"), but hints that fans of the first movie won't be disappointed: "I wish I could tell you about the look. It looks great, it looks fantastic."

The Twilight Saga: New Moon is out in the UK on November 27.

Looking forward to it!
I take these movies for what they are - I think they're light entertainment and the characters are cool. I also think Jamie looks good. Lovin' the guy liner - I can't believe people (uually sexually repressed men) are so childish as to make fun of him wearing eyeliner. Make-up and perfume were originally created for men, the only women that wore it were prostitutes. He looks awesome, though a bit androgenous- which is also cool, especially in a vamp movie - all vampires have that cool kinda look More

RE: Time is almost up
Ah spammers don't you just love them. I didn't realise a bloke with excess eye make up on would inspire such political skullduggery. That made more sense before the mods dissolved the spammer in a bathtub full of acid (and let that be a lesson for any other potential spammers, the punishment is harsh) More
