Cam (Talking about his character James, whom he is playing in the upcoming movie "Twilight"): I am James. I am one of three of the bad vampires. I am a bad, bad vampire. Well, so everyone else thinks. I think I'm just misunderstood! My sole goal is to basically kill Bella, I guess, and revel in Edward's pain as he watches it. It's definitely related to Edward. I see what Edward has with her. He has love. He is everything that I am not and has everything I do not have, and Bella is directly related to that. And Bella, alone, even has something I don't understand. It's something that draws everyone to her. She has that something, so being that I don't understand it, I want to squash it.
Cam (about working on his physicality for the character James he plays, in the upcoming movie "Twilight"): Once we got there, we actually watched numerous cat videos, like tigers and lions and all sorts of things, because they move with such a grace and speed and power and make it look so easy. Not that we're running around like cats, but there's that movement. It's very fluid, so we worked on that as much as we possibly could. And we even worked with a dance choreographer to get in touch with our bodies.
Cam: I was meant to play the bad guy, for always and ever.
Cam: I really love playing the bad guys. They have so much more freedom than the hero, and it's more of a challenge to give them a heart. I have a movie coming out soon called The unborn in which I play a good guy, and I would love to do more.
Cam: What do I think of euthanasia? That's an interesting question. I think young people are cool no matter what continent they're on.
