Jamie Campbell Bower Talks Caius & The Volturi

Entertainment Weekly's Popwatch chatted with Jamie Campbell Bower about playing Caius in New Moon:

Are you glad you got to play Caius?

I was originally auditioning for the role of Demetri in New Moon, and then they said, “We think you’d be more fitting as Caius.” And I said, “Well that’s very kind of you, I’d love to come along and play him.” And I was aware of the character, I was aware very much of the particularly strong presence the Volturi have in Breaking Dawn.

How did you prepare to play a Volturi?

The thing is it’s not like we’re going in blind to this job. There’s such history, particularly with the Volturi and the animosity they have toward werewolves. So to prepare for it I didn’t do anything particularly special, per se. Michael Sheen talks about having studied the characters that scared him for his character, but Stephenie [Meyer] also writes that Aro has a voice like feathers. It’s picking up things like that that can really help you. And once you get the costume and the makeup and the contact lenses in it all sort of falls into place anyway.
Have you signed on for the next two installments?
I didn’t do Eclipse, which they’ve finished, but I will hopefully be in Breaking Dawn – that’s where we get to really kick the s*** out of everything.

Who are you closest with on the cast?

Ashley [Greene] or Chris Heyerdahl who plays Marcus. He’s a lovely guy and we have very similar tastes in our comedy and what we like to watch and what we like to read. So we’re kindred spirits on set. But you know, I got along well with everyone.

Anything else we should know about Caius?

He’s doesn’t have any powers. He’s the only bloody Volturi who doesn’t have any powers. God knows why, I need to ask Stephenie that. Maybe he has the power to appear that he’s four centimeters to the left of wherever he is. That’s the power I’d like him to have.
