They have an exclusive Michael Welch interview. See the full interview here!
BAE: Were there any funny moments on the Twilight set that you would like to share with us?
Mike/Mike: One day, we shot on the rocky Oregon coast in what appeared to be a class 1 hurricane. I wasn’t in the worst of it like our courageous crew, along with Kristen, Justin, Christian, and whoever else was in that calamity. Acting while engulfed by merciless nature is not something that can be learned in a book.
You may be wondering what exactly is funny about this. At the risk of tarnishing this “wholesome” image I seem to have attained somehow, I will tell you. Being in a safe tent just up the hill from where they were shooting, it was hilarious for me to see the comically distraught and run-down condition people were in after working out there, even for a little bit. I have never seen such miserable, empty, unforgiving expressions on people’s faces.
It was completely ridiculous that we were out there at all. These were clearly unworkable conditions to be filming in. Also, the tent kept trying to fly away in the wind. We had to hold it down and hope that it wouldn’t collapse on us. I tend to deal with absurdity like that by laughing at it. Granted, I was not actually IN the real mess, but we all watch Family Guy, you know the rules. If it doesn’t happen to you and no one was seriously injured, it’s funny. If you ever see me fall flat on my face, don’t help me. Laugh at me. It’s hilarious and it always will be. If laughing at the expense of others is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
They also have a lot of Comic-Con information.
