Edi, Justin, and Gil Talk Twilight & New Moon

Twilight Examiner  has a great transcript from the Twilife show in Orlando this weekend.

Q: In the books, some of the character ethnicity was a little bit undefined, so how has it been to approach portraying these characters with a diverse cast?

Justin: … the obvious one is ‘I didn’t know Eric was Asian.’

Edi: Do they say ‘I didn’t know he was Asian’ or do they say ‘he’s not Asian?’

Justin: ‘I didn’t know he was Asian’ or ‘When did Yorkie become an Asian last name?’ But I think those both are good things to worry about. You know? … being Asian, that’s cool too because it brings awareness that we need a cast that’s more diverse. And so I think it’s a good thing that people are talking about it.

Q: Okay, so favorite scene in New Moon?

Edi: The meadow scene …

Justin: The meadow scene … [laughs]

Gil: The meadow scene …

Edi: Yeah! Bring Laurent back!
