MyAnna Buring (who plays Tanya) recently opened up about how she got cast in Breaking Dawn, and also says the final film, Breaking Dawn Part 2, is going to be ‘big.’
On Breaking Dawn Part 2:
“It’s going to be big,” she says. “Filming the final scenes was so epic. All the original characters and all the new vampires were there, it was just huge.
“One hundred actors on one set creates quite a special atmosphere, and you got a sense of what you were part of.”
On Rob, Kristen and Taylor:
Her relatively recent addition to the cast list means she’s avoided the worst excesses of hero worship experienced by Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
She says: “I’ve only had lovely experiences with fans but I think it must be crazy for the main group.
“They handle it with amazing grace, but if people actually experienced it I think they would think again about how cool it is because it can be really tough.”
On Getting cast in Breaking Dawn:
“I was shooting Kill List and I got a call saying they just couldn’t find this character.
“So on the off chance that they might look at a tape, I sent one off, already being a fan of the Twilight series, particularly the books. I sent it off thinking ‘This is a big Hollywood franchise and I’m little old me and they’re looking for a beautiful vampire’.
“I must have done something really right because I got the job two weeks later. I’d never met [director] Bill [Condon], I’d never met author Stephenie [Meyer], I’d never met any of the producers until I stepped foot on set. So after being confirmed for the job, I spent the next few months worrying they were going to call back and tell me they’d changed their minds.”
She didn’t get such a call, so she went into preparation mode: “I went back to the books, first and foremost. I went back and re-read them all and focused on the sections where Tanya was mentioned, focused on the sections where the Denalis were mentioned, what the Denalis said, how Stephenie had written them.
“And there’s a lot of backstory. I did a bit of research on vampire folklore and then obviously when I was on set, I had Stephenie there, so if I had any questions I could go to the original creator. It was just how I’d prepare for any part.”
