Tell us about your role in the film Twilight.
I am James. I am one of three of the bad vampires. I am a bad, bad vampire. Well, so everyone else thinks. I think I’m just misunderstood! My sole goal is to basically kill Bella, I guess, and revel in Edward’s pain as he watches it. It’s definitely related to Edward. I see what Edward has with her. He has love. He is everything that I am not and [has everything I] do not have, and Bella is directly related to that. And Bella, alone, even has something I don’t understand. It’s something that draws everyone to her. She has that something, so being that I don’t understand it, I want to squash it.
So, you’re a jealous vampire?
Jealous? In a way, yeah.
Jealous or obsessed?
I think obsessed is actually a better word. You know, it’s something that he doesn’t have and doesn’t understand, and once he makes that commitment to do what he sets out to do, it is an obsession.
