Next Movie asked Cam Gigandet (James) 5 questions recently and talked a little about Twilight.
In the final analysis, do you get more attention from fans for killing Marissa Cooper or breaking Bella’s leg?
[Laughs] I’m going to have to go with the “Twilight” fans because… they are really never-ending. I played paintball this past weekend with my dad — the whole day, people would come up and say “Oh, you’re the guy from –” and if it was a girl, without fail, the girl would bring up ‘Twilight.” They used to bring up “The O.C.” but not so much anymore.
The guys who came up to me this past weekend — it was always “Never Back Down.” Which is interesting.
Thankfully, “Twilight” set me up for a really long time. Everything that has such success and a fan following makes my job easier. It’ll always help me, for the rest of my career.
Two vampire movies in the last few years — are you a big fan, yourself?
I don’t know if it was even vampire movies that was the draw for me. I’m fascinated with worlds where there’s a small population left, whether it’s a movie or these TV shows that fascinate me — “Falling Skies” or “The Walking Dead” — they are about survival and triumphing over difficult times. I just have a thing for ‘em.
Of course, vampires are so cool and scary.

Ah Cam! He really played James perfectly! Loved it when he sniffs the air and says “You brought a snack.” AHHHH! FLOVE!
Thank you Andie!
