Michael Sheen says Aro was an extraordinary character

Michael Sheen spilled deets to Empire in his cheeky English fashion. Read the whole interview at Empire, and check Sheen's tweets to put a little sunshine in your day!

On Aro:

"I'm all done on it; I had a great time," he told us. "It was nice to go in and not be playing the main part, just go in for a few days and play this really really extraordinary character. I remember I was thinking, 'Oh, there's a bit of a Child Catcher here [from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang]; bit of the Blue Meanie from The Yellow Submarine; bit of Olivier from Richard III. There was a bit of all kinds of stuff."

On Chris Weitz:

"It was great to work with Chris Weitz; it was a really funny set, really relaxed. We had a lot of things in common, and hopefully we're going to work together again soon doing something. That might be the thing that I direct, I don’t know yet, you never know."

On working with Rob and Kristen:

"It was quite intimidating being on the set with so many young, beautiful people. That was quite extraordinary being the old, ugly one amongst loads of young, beautiful ones. It's not something I'm used to really. Not because I'm young and beautiful but usually there's loads of old, ugly people around me. It was quite encouraging to see how Robert and Kristin are committed to it, how much they put into it and how serious they are about it. They don't take it lightly at all so that was great to see."

  1. All the twitter messges that Michael has sent our in the last month have been great! I am so glad that he is playing Aro. He seams to really have taken us all in so graciously. By that I mean, all of us crazy twilight fans! He has welcomed all of us and even taken time to tweet us back!
    Thanks Michael, for being an addition to our obsession!
