We didn’t get to see the beautiful MyAnna Buring at this year’s Comic Con for Breaking Dawn: Part 2, but in a recent interview with The Coventry Telegraph, MyAnna did speak about her audition tape for Breaking Dawn, and what it was like to jump into the story at the end. Read the interview below:
“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.”
