Yes, there are other mentionables in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn 2 besides on-screen and (possibly reunited) off-screen couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
Like Charlie Bewley and Daniel Cudmore, who play Demitri and Felix, respectively, members of the vampire enforcement council or Volturi. Demitri is a super tracker, able to find anyone, anywhere in the world. Felix is the other half of the dynamic duo seeking Renesmee, the child of Edward and Bella Cullen who is half human — a vampire sin and possible threat.
Though Bewley and Cudmore are gravely serious in the final installment of the immensely popular series — adapted from the Stephenie Meyer books — in real life, they’re a hoot. They play off each other like Martin and Lewis.
“We’re actually doing standup while we’re out on the road,” Cudmore joked at the Mandarin Oriental Miami Hotel. “We stay together in bunk beds, and Charlie holds me at night when I get scared.”
Don’t let Cudmore fool you: He’s happily married, a newlywed actually (the Canadian’s wife is coincidentally named Stephanie). Bewley, originally from England, is reportedly single.
There was a lot of down time on the set, mostly filmed in Baton Rouge, La., two years ago, and the guys made the most of it.
“We all stayed in this Hilton hotel downtown, and one night after the big confrontation scene, we really tore up the club,’’ recounted Cudmore. “We busted a move on the dance floor. I may have had a drink or two.”
Added Bewley: “All the vampires were just raging. We had so much built-up energy.”
The co-stars practically finish each other’s sentences and like to rat each other out.
“We’re all having this great time dancing, and then I look over and see Charlie with headphones on, moving to the beat of his own music.”
Bewley wasn’t fond of what the club was playing.
“It was hip-hop, and I’m not a big fan. I was listening to trance!”
Though Cudmore had yet to see Breaking Dawn 2, his friend was happy with the outcome.
“I think it’s fantastic. The pace is elevated, with all the action. It’s great for people with ADD. Out of the five, it’s the one I could watch over and over again. When I first read the script it gave me tingles.”
“Tingles?” inquired Cudmore.
“Down my spine, down my spine!” answered a deadpan Bewley, adding, “I think everyone’s going to be blown away.”
