More New Moon secrets revealed: Volturi

Share |

Caius from the Volturi coven

Twi-hards, please meet Aro, Marcus, Caius, Alec and Jane, five members of the deadly Voturi family from New Moon.

The first individual character stills have just arrived, and they look awesome! Jane is especially vampire-beautiful.

To understand the characters better, New Moon director Chris Weitz described what lay behind them and what made him picture the Vilturi the way he did.

Chris Weitz said:

No matter how strange one of the characters is in a work of fantasy, I think you have to approach them as people and then so you start to think, ‘They’ve been around for 2,000 years. How would they interact with one another?’ The conclusion was that after 2,000 years you’d probably be more than mildly insane. No matter how cultured or gracious you appear on the surface.

Michael Sheen as Aro from New Moon

And I think that’s what Michael Sheen managed to portray as Aro, the head of the Volturi – on the surface he’s terribly gracious, warm, a wonderful host and at the same time he’s lethal and frightening.

Dakota Fanning as Jane from New Moon

It’s also what Dakota Fanning conveys as Jane. She’s innocent looking in appearance but she’s absolutely deadly.

Weitz added that creating the setting was as important as working on the characters’ images. He confessed he tried his best to avoid the traditional perception of vampires’ home – a dark and dreary Dracula’s castle:

[Volturi’s] headquarters is surprisingly light and crisp. And the characters that they play have a kind of a tactile reality to them in spite of how bizarre their situation is really. The whole point is not to leave Forks, Washington where everything has really been quite realistic and then suddenly go to a location that completely throws you out of the movie. And the set although it’s huge and grand and magnificent actually feels like a real place.”

Marcus from the Volturi covenc

The Volturi are played by Dakota Fanning (Jane), Cameron Bright (Alec), Michael Sheen (Aro), Christopher Heyerdahl (Marcus), Jamie Campbell Bower (Ciaus), Charlie Bewley (Demetri), Daniel Cudmore (Felix), Noot Seear (Heidi), and Justine Wachsberger (Gianna).
