Wolf Pack Interviewed

Posted in Eclipse, Wolf Pack with tags , , on May 3, 2010 by chasingcullens

wolf‘Twilight: Eclipse’ interview with the wolf pack. Summit Entertainment is continuing to build anticipation amongst fans for the release of their third installment in their popular vampire series based on the novels by Stephenie Meyers titled “Twilight Saga:Eclipse” — and so is the LA Times. They write:

The 1950s gave us the Rat Pack. The ‘80s, the Brat Pack. These days, the Wolf Pack is roaming the film scene.

Although the “Twilight” franchise may have helped spur the vampire craze with the Cullen brood, the saga’s gang of shape-shifters is bringing sexy back to werewolves. And in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” which hits theaters June 30, that’s no different.

“The Cullens are very reserved,” said Alex Meraz, who plays Wolf Pack member Paul. “They’re vampires, but they’re not out killing people. They’re not what they’re meant to be. Whereas the Wolf Pack, we’re through and through animals. We’re frisky. We’re fun. There’s something sexy about that.”

In the third installment of the franchise, the band of brotherly (and sisterly, as we’ll see) hirsute creatures joins forces with its rivals, the Cullens, after Seattle is plagued by a series of killings caused by an army of newborn vampires.

But since their computer-generated alter egos seem to be getting most of the screen time, here’s a chance to get to know the actors pre-transformation:

Alex Meraz (Paul)

At 25, Meraz is still adjusting to the whirlwind that comes with being in a blockbuster franchise. But don’t be fooled. He’s not complaining.

“Bring it on,” he said. “I was working really hard before, and it just didn’t seem to pay off. I’m just really grateful for it all.”

Before he caught the acting “virus,” Meraz — who admitted his first viewing of “Twilight” was a bootleg version — demonstrated his artistic tendencies through dance, martial arts and painting. In fact, he still breaks out the paint and brushes to maintain his sanity through all the “Twilight” pandemonium.

But it’s that pandemonium that gets him amped when talking about the movie.

“The fans are going to love this film,” he said. “I didn’t get my chance to touch anybody in ‘New Moon.’ This time I go at it with Emmett [ Kellan Lutz]. I give him a nice bitch slap. But I’m in wolf form, so maybe it’s a big paw slap?

“Oh, and there’s a lot more action. It’s more Paul wolf. You’re going to see my wolf form doing a lot of stuff. You’ll just see me running around shirtless once and a while.”

So what of all those topless scenes?

“I have a newfound respect for women. I have to keep my figure. Girls are telling me to take my shirt off. It’s like, ‘Hello! I’m a person, too!’ ”

Julia Jones (Leah Clearwater)

Bryce Dallas Howard isn’t the only new face to join the burgeoning ensemble cast. Jones will make her debut to the franchise as Leah Clearwater, the scorned and bitter sole female member of theWolf Pack.

“She’s really a tough character,” said Jones, 29. “She’s pretty angry about a lot of things that she has every right to be angry about. She’s miserable and lost and trying to cope internally without a lot of help. And she lashes out quite a bit.”

Jones may not be a household name just yet, having appeared in independent films and a few episodes of “ER,” but that will surely change for the Boston native come June. And for the woman who said she knew she wanted to be an actress after playing Michael Darling in a production of “Peter Pan” as a child, it’ll be a learning process.

“I don’t know,” Jones said. “I’m just trying to take it easy while I can. It’s going to be a new thing to figure out how to navigate this craze. I’m doing my best to prepare myself for all of it.”

Chaske Spencer (Sam Uley)

Spencer reprises his role as werewolf Sam Uley, the sometimes disgruntled leader of the Wolf Pack.

Although Spencer hasn’t exactly gotten used to the global attention — “It’s cool, the recognition. But it’s work. I know how to keep my life private” — he said he doesn’t regret the decision to join the wildly popular franchise.

“There’s a lot more offers,” said Spencer, 35. “As an actor, that’s all you can hope for: more chances to keep it going.”

Spencer is in Arizona shooting his new film “Shouting Secrets,” about a successful young writer in Los Angeles who is called back to his Native American background to tend to his ailing mother.

With the media blitz already in full effect for “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” Spencer said working on something completely different is a way to escape. But there’s no escaping the constant pleas for spoilers from the new flick. And like his character’s quiet, shadow-like wolf form, he only gives a whisper of details.

“This time around, Sam has to put his ego aside to take on this new breed of vampires,” Spencer said. “There’s a lot of new relationships being formed.”

He stated, “I’m in New York and nobody knows who I am. If they do they don’t bother me. I still go to the same places, I hang out with the same crowd.You’ll find me stumbling around here somewhere.” You can read the story at NBC New York by Clicking Here.


Chaske Spencer’s Interview

Popstar has a short new interview with Chaske Spencer where he talks about the Twilight fans and what it was like to film Eclipse. Check out more below:

You must have some great fan encounters, anything stick out, and have you received any cool gifts you would like to share with us?Yeah, they give me some really cool gifts. Once I got a gold chain that I sported and it was really nice. If a fan comes up and has a cause, or charity of something and my signature helps out, I am all for it. The fans have been great.

Life on set of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse was pretty insane with the constant press. What was it like working on the film?

Oh yeah! We have blocked off a section and the paparazzi had built this huge ladder that allowed them to get over. That thing was huge, maybe two stories, and they got over it. We were filming a scene and we looked up and they were taking our picture.

Did any of the fans sneak in?

Some fans got into the set which is kinda cool. Good for them! It is very tight security and it pretty hard to get in.

When you look back to filming The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, do any memories jump out at you?

Yeah, we did this campfire scene that was really cool, I can’t give too much away. The bonding with the cast was great, they are great people.

March Is The Month Of Vampires & A Wolf

The month of March must’ve been rather lucky because it is host to several Twilight stars’ birthdays.

Last week, on March 2nd, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse star Bryce Dallas Howard celebrated her twenty-ninth birthday. In Eclipse, Howard portrays the bad-girl vampire “Victoria.”

Today, The Twilight Saga: New Moon star Chaske Spencer celebrates his thirty-fifth birthday. Spencer portrays “Sam Uley” in the Twilight series, and he is also a regular on the Twilight convention circuit. Tomorrow, Edi Gathegi (“Laurent”) celebrates his thirty-second, and while his character cannot come back for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, he’s been a loved member of the Twilight series cast since the beginning.

Later on this month, Kellan Lutz (“Emmett Cullen”) will ring in his twenty-fifth year as well. Lutz is enjoying his Twilight celebrity status, it seems, but he continues to be gracious and humble to his fans whenever he comes into contact with them.

So, happy birthday to all of the March-born Twilight stars!


Power To The People

Posted in Eclipse, New Moon, twilight with tags , , , , , on February 25, 2010 by chasingcullens

As you already know, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse starChaske Spencer has been working closely with United Global Shift for the past few months.

Recently, several of his Twilight series co-stars stepped up to the plate to record a new public service announcement video for the campaign, including Gil Birmingham (“Billy Black”), Julia Jones (“Leah Clearwater”),Justin Chon (“Eric Yorkie”), Boo Boo Stewart(“Seth Clearwater”), and Alex Meraz (“Paul”).

The message from the PSA was as follows:

Due to recent storms, thousands of people are without water, food, power, and heat. The Native American people on the affected reservations are freezing and dying right now. Right here in the United States. The government’s response has been slow and inefficient. But this is not a Native American issue, this is a human issue. You can make a difference, you can make thedifference. We don’t need your money. We need your voice. To create a sustainable solution beyond the immediate crisis. We the people have to take a stand and be heard. It’ll take you a few minutes, but you can impact generations to come. Be the shift.
