Christopher Heyerdahl will play Marcus of the Volturi in New Moon. There’s a new interview where Christopher reveals some details on his role–
Heyerdahl—who has worn extensive makeup and prosthetics for some of his roles —said that the makeup required in New Moon to transform him into one of the undead was easy by comparison.
“Yeah, they do their best to suck the life out of you, but certainly nothing compared to any of those past prosthetics,” Heyerdahl said. “From that perspective, it was pretty easy. The looks they are getting in this film are absolutely fantastic. Everyone looks gorgeous and deliciously lifeless.”
He also notes of director Chris Weitz–
“Director Chris Weitz’s version for this piece is like a Renaissance painting. The images were absolutely beautiful, and the character is such a tragic old fellow.”
Check out the rest of the interesting interview at SciFiWire where he talks about how he decided to interpret the character Marcus, and why he chose the role.
