    1. For how long have you been an actor? Did you wanted to be that since you were a kid?

    I've been acting since College. I studies theater at New York University. Professionally I've been acting 14 years.

    2. What's the better thing of being an actor? And the worst?

    The best thing about being an actor, is being able to explore many different lives, in one lifetime. I hate the business aspect of acting. Auditioning, getting the jobs, making the deals, to me those are the worst. I'm happiest when I'm researching the role, or in front of the camera, creating.

    3. Would you like to do that all of your life?


    4. Did your family and friends help you to become an actor since the beginning?

    I had no family or friends in the business. I was just a kid, with a dream of being able to act. I went to school, stuidied acting, and am now fortunate enough to do what I love.

    5. Tell us who are your favorite actor and your favorite actress. Did you have the chance to meet them?

    Paul Newman, and Robert Redford... I've never gotten a chance to meet either.

    6. Describe yourself in 3 words.

    I'm still trying to figure myself out. Ask me again when I'm 80.

    7. Describe Carlisle in 3 words

    Compassionate, refined, protective

    8. Tell us your 3 favorite books (not from Stephenie Meyer :P)

    Green Eggs and Ham, Where's Waldo?, Goodnight Moon... I have three kids :)

    9. And your favorite movies?

    Bullitt, Apocalypse Now, The Godfather

    10. How could you describe “twilight” the movie?

    A beautiful love story, set within a Vampire tale, with some killer action.

    11. When did you knew about Stephenie Meyer and her books?

    I read Twilght in one day, the day before I met the director Catherine Hardwicke, and read for the role of Carlisle. I fell in love with the story.

    12. How was the casting for Carlisle's role? What did you have to do?

    I met Catherine, and read some scenes from the movie. Catherine, read some of the other roles and was very active in the audition, I could see how passionate she was about the story.

    13. What did you think when they told your agent you were in the project?

    Originally, they had offered the role to another actor, who did not work out. So I was vey surprised, and excited to hear that it came my way.

    14. Which one is your favorite character in the book? (male/female)

    Edward is such a tortured soul in the book, that I find his character very intriguing.

    15. And your favorite book (Twilight, New moon, Eclipse…)?

    It sounds like a cop out, but I really enjoyed all three. Each explored different things so it is hard to compare. If I had to choose I would say Eclipse, because I like how the werewolves and Cullens team together.

    16. What's the best thing of playing Carlisle's role? And the worst?

    The best part of playing Carlisle is feeling like the head of this amazing family, with all different personalities. The worst, for Carlisle, is probably the responsibility of keeping the family together and hoping everyone is happy.

    17. Did you imagine yourself like Carlisle when you were reading the book?


    18. How are the opinions of the fans about you doing Carlisle's role?

    In the beginning there were a lot of mixed opinions, but I've felt an amazing amount of fan support since then, and hope I can win over those, who still can't see it. At the end of the day, everyone who has read the book, has their own version of Carlisle in their mind, and it is impossible to fit everyone's version of Carlisle. But I hope that they come to the movie open to new interpretations of the characters.

    19. What would you say to all the fans?

    Thank you all so much for the amazing support you have shown, not only towards me, but all of the cast. And I really hope you enjoy the movie, and help make it successful so we can make more for you guys to watch.

    20. Have you notice that now your face is all over the Twilight-sites? How is that?

    No. I havven't been able to surf, many of the sites as of late, as we've been busy shooting.

    21. How are the other actors? How is working with them? You're like their father, aren't you? LOL

    We all get along very well. Yes, I'm their father. They like teasing me and calling me, dad, or pops...

    22. Can you tell us something funny that happened while you were shooting?

    I think its funny that we can't shoot in the sun. When the sun comes out we have to wait for clouds. Usually in movies it's reverse. You want sun, and when clouds come you have to wait for the clouds to go away.

    23. If you could choose, what would you be: Vampire or werewolf?... or human?

    I'm a little biased, but I'd have to say VAMPIRE.

    24. What do you think about Carlisle being 23 years old, married and with 3 sons and 2 daughters? Are you prepared for the role?

    I'm married and have three children, so I feel very prepared.

    25. Are you thinking about coming to Spain sometime? Have you visited Crepusculo-es. com, what do you think about the website?

    I will definitely come check out the site... As far as Spain, No I've never been, but I'd love to come. Hopefully the movie will be successfull there, and they will have us visit.

    Till then,
