Jack Huston: How he got the Part of Royce King
Details: In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, you play the former fiancé of Edward’s sister, Rosalie. How did you land the part?
Jack Huston: I auditioned for another part—a newborn vampire—and kind of shocked the producers. I acted like a junkie. I hadn’t slept the night before and had drunk lots of coffee. Everyone was like, “Um, a little too edgy.” But they liked me enough to offer me this part instead.
Details: What’s it like to be part of the Twilight phenomenon?
Jack Huston: I have never seen anything like it, actually. I turned up for shooting and, literally, everyone was there—children, teenagers, 20-year-olds, mothers, older ladies. There was an English teacher, who had saved up her time off and flown from England to Vancouver to put herself up in the same hotel as the cast. She sat in the lobby all day, just to see them walk out. That’s a little extreme, but I like her dedication.
Details: Your character isn’t a nice guy. Have any rabid fans confronted you yet?
Jack Huston: They haven’t said anything to me yet. I’m safe for now. But imagine if it turns nasty and they camp outside my house with knives. That would be terrible. “Stop attacking me! I’m really a nice guy! I am not a rapist!”
