Daniel Cudmore recently sat down with Twilight Lexicon to talk about his role as Felix in New Moon!!
Daniel has appeared in several films, but is probably most widely recognized for his portrayal of Colossus in the X-Men movies. He talks about the entire process of morphing into his vampire character. “I found the whole process a lot of fun, I wear contacts normally so it wasn’t uncomfortable. The whole costumes when put together were so cool, and really helped with getting right into that character. It also helped that my skin was pretty much the same color as a vampire’s after a nice Vancouver winter.”
When it came to his character, Daniel says he worked on the back story and development for a while. “I really liked his animalistic side and how good he is at what he does. I also worked out that his rage comes from jealousy, not having a power like the rest in the coven and Aro’s fascination with Edward fuels it even more. It was a fun character to play.”
Daniel has done a lot of his own stunts in the past and says that it helped significantly with his scene in New Moon. “I think the coolest stunt so far is this fight scene. It’s great to be the actor and getting to do all the fight choreography helps with the performance and really makes me feel a part of this character.”
