Jamie Campbell-Bower Cast in Twilight Saga’s ‘New Moon’

Published 6 years ago by , Updated August 22nd, 2013 at 3:13 pm,

News about The Twilight Saga’s New Moon seems to spring up on the daily, and today is no different: actor Jamie Campbell-Bower (Sweeny Todd, RocknRolla) is the latest name to be announced as part of the New Moon cast.

Campbell-Bower will play Caius, leader of the Volturi, an ancient Italian covenant of vampires. Screen Rant recently confirmed that New Moon would include actress Dakota Fanning as Jane and actress Noot Seear as Heidi, both members of the Volturi. Sounds like a pretty star-studded covenant.

Speaking of “star-studded,” how many other big names we will see cast in New Moon? Jamie Campbell-Bower knows for sure, and check out what he had to say on the subject:

“I do know who else will be in it – but I can’t tell you, unfortunately. But go online and have a look at the rumors,” he said. “They’re all false. You’re putting me in a terrible situation.”

Awww, sorry Twilight fans, looks like you’ll just have to wait and see what the film gods have in store for your favorite fanged franchise.

Back to the subject of Jamie Campbell-Bower: the actor will join the production of New Moon over in Europe this summer, in order to shoot his scenes as Caius.

New Moon is still being fast-tracked for a November 20, 2009 release. It will be directed by Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass) and will re-star Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, alongside some new (soon-to-be-cast) vampires and a whole wolf pack. Should be a blast.

What do you think about Jamie Campbell-Bower joining the cast of New Moon?

  1. Um, that’s a dude?

    Just sayin’…


  2. To be fair to Mr. Campbell-Bower I picked that pic knowing some comments would be made about it. Just Joshin ya, Jamie. (But then again, there weren’t really any ultra-manly pics to choose from either.)

  3. I know, I know… that was a petty shot. But still…



  4. Ya, when I saw that I assumed Jamie was a girl!! When I was reading the article I was just like “why would a girl be caius??” then i was suddenly like “omg thats a guy!!” :p

  5. Hmmmmm…..Maybe I need to go back and read over the books again, but for some reason I thought Caius would look much older than that.

  6. Oh my..looks like a girl..similar to dakota’s face. Can’t wait for d other volturi cast. Wow! Dis is so exciting. Can’t wait for new moon!

  7. I really thought Caius was older….this guy looks like 15 toooo young to be Caius…but lets see..

  8. I’m with you guys, totally thought it was a chick.

  9. Haha I thought it was a chick too until I read the he stuff, then I looked again, and again and was like, oh, I thought it was not so attractive girl.

  10. Wow… I thought this was an april fool’s joke… ew… just, ew!

  11. im so glad he is playing caius they need people we havent heard from!!!

  12. OMG!!! I’m soo happy that Jamie is going to play Caius XDDD

    I loved him in Sweeney Todd,and I can’t wait to see him in New Moon *U*~

  13. COOL!

  14. Honestly…I could see him more as an Alec…..not Caius! I always pictured Caius, Aro, and Marcus to look mid-20s like Carlisle. This guy looks too feminine and like he’s 15! Well, at least Caius isn’t in the book long….maybe we’ll get lucky and not see him alot…lol

  15. I agree Jut Jut… maybe they will make him older looking. All things are possible with tv and movies :)

  16. I think JCB has on to much make up, but we still love him.Good luck in New moon can’t wait to see it.When your done go back to Camelot i loved it.It has broke my heart about not having season 2.I don’t believe all the rumorS anyway.
