She plays Zafrina in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and the folks over at Twilightish got the chance to interview Judi Shekoni about the movies! Here’s an excerpt:
Twilightish: Being a newcomer to the ‘Twilight Saga’, how was it joining this tight group of friends?
Judi: I didn’t know what it would be like coming into a movie where people had already shot 3 films. It’s amazing. They have new people coming into every film, they’re used to it. It was great working with people who are established and know what is going on.
Twilightish: The Famous Fandom Question: Did you read the books or see the movies before you went for the part of Zafrina? If so, were you a fan of the series before?
Judi: I was already a big fan of Twilight. Waited for each book to be released, and read all four years ago. I knew about the project (film). I was a fan from the beginning when Kristen was announced as Bella. I love the series.
Twilightish: Zafrina is part of the Amazon clan with her two sisters, did you guys find instant chemistry on set?
Judi: I spent a lot of time working with Tracey Heggins (Senna), people even thought we were sisters in real life! We hung out in hotel rooms, went to lunch and dinner with each other, became inseparable during the course of filming. We still call or speak with each other now, we definitely bonded really well! Being part of a coven made you part of a team.
