MTV: So, Jamie, you told us that you experimented with different accents while working on “New Moon.” Is it safe to say that Caius and the other Volturi will have Italian accents, since they live in Volterra?
Jamie Campbell Bower: Actually, I have an English accent. Because they’re so old — they’re 2,000 years old, these guys — they would’ve tried [everything]. They’re speaking English now, but they wouldn’t have spoken English throughout all of their life. And so there’s sort of a round vowel sound. The R’s are very pronounced. It’s kind of strange. It’s almost medieval, the way we speak.
TV: What’s the one scene in “New Moon” you most enjoyed filming?
Campbell Bower: Well, there’s a particular scene where we rip this guy apart, and I just sit there smiling and really enjoying it. When I got the script, I was like, “That’s the one I want to do the most!,” because there’s nothing to say. It’s really sordid, gross and really grim — that was pretty fun.
