Collider also managed an interview with the Volturi, the cabal of fanged ones who serve as the ruling tribunal of the vampires in the Twilight Saga universe. Present for the interview were actors Dakota Fanning (Jane), Michael Sheen (Aro), Jamie Campbell (Caius) and Cameron Bright (Alec).  A few quotes from each Volturi member:

Dakota Fanning: I think the highlight of playing Jane was getting to wear that costume and to have the red contact lenses — I was really excited about that – and getting to play an evil character. The next movie I already finished doing, Eclipse, and it’s about the same. It’s still not very much in the movie.

Michael Sheen: …I liked the idea of a character who on the surface appears to be very friendly and thinks of himself as just being a sentimental old fool, a romantic at heart, and then he wants to eat your eyes. I liked that sort of idea so that was where Aro came from…

Jamie Campbell Bower: We are basically the vampire government, I guess. We’re there to sort of keep all the vampires in check. People keep describing us as evil. I wouldn’t say we’re evil necessarily. We’re the government and not everybody likes the government, which is fine…There’s me and Michael and Chris Heyerdahl who plays Marcus, Aro and Caius respectively, and we sit on these big thrones and then there’s you (Dakota) and Charlie (Bewley) and Dan (Cudmore). They’re our runners effectively.

Cameron Bright: Me and Dakota, we’re the henchmen but it’s kind of funny because Dakota is the most feared out of all the Volturi. She’s the one with the worst power and everything – well not worst like worst in a sentence. We’re the henchmen. We kind of do what they say. For me, as Alec, I’m the only one that isn’t quite afraid of her but I still am. Like I’m not afraid to say what I want, where everybody else is always kind of watching their words, as far the henchmen go…We’re brother and sister. That’s basically about it. That spells it out for you. Luckily, we don’t fight at all or else I’d be in trouble.

Dakota Fanning: For me, my special power is that I can just look at someone and cause them pain. And, if I could have any power, it would be to read people’s thoughts.

Jamie Campbell Bower: I don’t have a power. Take from that what you will. And if I had a power in real life, probably something like the power of flight would be kind of cool – just to get from A to B much quicker rather than walking everywhere. It’s much faster.

Michael Sheen: My power is to be able to read people’s thoughts by touching them, and in real life, I would like to have the power to always look like I’m 3 centimeters to the right of where I actually am. [Laughter] Mock!…I haven’t really experienced much of the Twilight fan stuff yet. But, I did go into a store in L.A. to buy a pair of jeans and I went into the little cubicle to try my jeans on…As I came out, there was a woman shaking, going “You’re Aro, aren’t you?!” and I just hid in my cubicle again. Whooo! Anyway, I’m slightly to the right of where you are. [Laughter] That’s been really my only experience with that. Apart from also going into my daughter’s bedroom and seeing — she’s just got pictures from Twilight and New Moon everywhere — and seeing my own little picture which I think she did out of pity. [Laughter] Have Dad up there as well. That was quite a ball [bore?].

  1. I never saw the first movie and I will not be seeing this one either. I’m sick of all the vampire and zombie movies that have come out in recent months. I think Hollywood needs to give this genre a rest for at least a year. of course maybe that’s just me talking.

  2. twilight is so stupid not only does the book suck,becuz its a bite of underworld,and come on vampirer dont glitter thats gay the book is filled with second grade diction,and the movies has the worse dialogue ever, if you would ever go to the premier you only see only desperate and ugly girls that buy into this bull

  3. Well i love the Twilight Saga so much that i went out and purchised all of the books.Twilight is a cool fantasy and i enjoyed reading the books.I think Twilight is a good book to relate to when love is complicated.I am not a desperate girl and the movies and books of Twilight is not gay


  4. your a liar you are desperate you actaully bought all those stupid @$$ books they suck and what so complicated about vampire falling in love with humans it been done in plenty of movies.

  5. Well, Mario. So what if a vampire is glittering. IT’S FANTASY!
    And by the way the complicated with a vampire falling in love, is that the vampire are trying not to kill the girl or human. Also when a vampire is falling in love with a human (in other movies) they are often killed.


  6. Well Mario whoever you are if you don’t like Twilight then get off the website this is for fans only!I agree with LOLgUrL and I also bought all the Twilight saga books and the movie. I am not desperate or ugly. I bet the only ugly one here is you!

  7. Mario this is LOLgUrL and i’m not trying to have a fued over this but tour comments are stupid.And i do believe in exspressing your opion is cool but what your saying is so uncalled for.But wateva

    Sincerly:LOLgUrL The vampire that is mostly in love with a human and cant touch her the way he wants to, that is complicated.

  8. Mario puhleaze just shut your mouth!!!! what the heck are you doing on a twilight related website if you think that twilight sucks???
    maybe you secretly like it:) i’m a guy and i loooove twilight, it is most definitely not gay and it rules all other movies,,, go twilight!!!

  9. i am so glad this Mario character is not responding any more because he does not need 2.This is a fans only site!!!!!!!!


  10. To Mario, Well Mario, a person’s appearance really isn’t the issue. This is meant to be “fantasy”. It’s an escape into an imaginery world. How about Atavar? How about some of the video games? What about Harry Potter? How about Star Wars? How about Shrek? To dumb it down a bit How about Disney characters? You shouldn’t call all the girls “ugly” who go to these movies. You’ve missed the whole point. Therefore why are you on this site at all?

  11. I’m all about the Twilight Saga!!! I read all four books in less than a week and I even read the unfinished copy of Midnight Sun!! I even bought my movie tickets for the midnight showing of New Moon the day they went for sale(two months prior to opening night)!! I admit…it may appear to be lame to some but as Wendy Kennedy said, “It is meant to be ‘fantasy’!” As far as fantasy goes, these books are great for both males and females. In fact, my 13year old son read them just to see what the hoopla was all about and enjoyed the last two books of the series. Of course he wasn’t sucked into the whole lover story deal but he didn’t say it was boring either. I’m a fan and there is NOTHING wrong with it at all.

  12. Who ever thinks twilight suck is out of there minds. Twilight is the best movie ive seen in years. Those who hate shouldn,t be on this site anyways.Twilight is the best ever I have read all the books twice. And I love, love the movie’s going to see new moon tonight. So all you Twilight haters, shut up. Thank you. I think there just wishing they had Edward and Bella’s relationship, come on who wouldnt wont to be bella or edward, he just totally wonts to eat her up, what a fantasy. Love twilight forever.

  13. okay so im one of the biggest twilight freaks in the world. im absolutly in love with this seris.
    im obsessed and i think anyone who hasnt read these books is crazy and you should deffinatly go out and get the books. you will finish all four in less then one week. im 15 years old and i read all four books in four days. Best book i have ever read. cant wait for eqlipse to come out. i think both Taylor and Rob do an amazing job at playing their part. I dont know which side im on becasue i feel in love with both charactors.

  14. I get tired of all the vampire and zoombie movied and books.I am just not a fan of it.
