'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2:' Angela Sarafyn, Rami Malek Reveal New Details on Egyptian Coven
Fans brace themselves for next epic finale of "The Twilight Saga" in November.
Cast of "Breaking Dawn Part 2" reveal new information about their parts and what fans are expecting for the hotly anticipated movie.
"I read the full book and completely saw all the movies, and got a sense of the world I was coming into," Sarafyn said.
About being a vampire: "I didn't know what it was going to look like. It was trippy. It was, I don't look anything like that. I was really cool because I don't look anything like my character in the movie at all. From my hair to my makeup, to the clothes that I wear, I don't look anything like it. I even think I look, there's this picture out now of all the vampires, and I don't even think it looks like me. That picture, she looks Egyptian. It's crazy that this transformation happened. It was cool to finally play a character that didn't look anything like me."
Sarafyn revealed that the Egyptian vampires are not white like the other ones.
"We are all golden. We are not white. Being Egyptian, that is one of the things that stood out. We look really good."
She also said that the role wasn't really challenging, but fun.
"I would think that the right answer was that it wasn't really challenging, it was fun. It was interesting and fun to approach based on the world that was being created. If that makes any sense. Because I didn't know really what I was walking into, so everything was kind of created in the moment," Sarafyn said.
"You create in the moment, which makes it more exciting. It wasn't a challenge, so it was more fun than difficult in any way working on this part. Creating real relationships and building the characters from there."
Other characters spoke about their new roles.
Rami Malek, who plays Benjamin of the Egyptian coven, talked about his powers and the special effects scenes.
"I know we shot quite a bit of stuff using different powers so I don't know what will make it into the end of the cut -the final cut- but-I think there should be some pretty cool surprises in store in regards to manipulating the elements."
He also talked about the olive skin color that the Egyptian vampires have.
"In Stephanie's book it says that the Egyptian coven has an olive pallor so it was nice while we were working not to get a lot of that white make up that everyone was wearing because it's just not pleasant and I don't think it made anybody look any better than they did in real life. But it worked their vampires and it's kind of odd being a tan vampire."
He revealed his favorite moments: "I would say meeting a lot of this new cast and the old cast and establishing some great friendships."
Pattinson, 26, said that he enjoyed the conclusion of "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," which will include a look at the entire series. "It's an amazing experience," he said. "It's a huge chunk of my life, and the end of the movie, the last few scenes, kind of look back at the whole series. It's so sweet."
About the fan frenzy, he said, "I find it amazing, the intensity of people liking it. It's crazy," he said. "It's an elemental thing that it connected to, which I still don't understand. I hope people like it."
It was recently revealed that Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will appear together at the premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2," which releases in theaters Nov. 16.
