Judi Shekoni (aka Zafrina in Breaking Dawn) chatted with The Creative Pop Culture Community about her experience working on Breaking Dawn and what’s next for her:
As an actress how does it feel to be in the final installment of Twilight?
“I feel so excited, I have been acting for a while and I honestly feel this is my favorite role so far. I have always had a love of vampires so this film has given me a change to explore them further. Its great to be part of something that is so popular right now, and it is amazing to be part of a cast that is so big and diverse. My character also is exciting to play – it is the first time I have ever played anyone with a special power!”
Time does indeed fly when it comes to the movie industry. It feels like a heartbeat ago when the books made worldwide impact and now we are all awaiting the final two-parts of Breaking Dawn.
What are some characteristics of Zafrina you like?
“She is strong and powerful, she also is in touch with nature. I have a deep respect to nature and the environment and so love playing a character that is so connected. I love her relationship with Senna as I feel that women do have a strong bond with each other and I like how they take care of each other. I think her special power is so exciting, I am very interested in the human mind and its capabilities so I am fascinated by her mental special powers and it gave me a chance to explore what it would be like to have it and how it would work. I also like her connection with the baby – as it shows her motherly instincts.”
