‘Sweeney Todd’ Actor Finds Life in Twilight’s ‘New Moon’

Jamie Campbell-Bower played Anthony (pictured right) in Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd and has now found himself under the watchful eye of many fangirls as BBC News got the actor to spill the beans on his involvement in The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

Campbell-Bower has revealed he will play Volturi leader Caius saying it is “very exciting” and “Shooting has already started, and I’m going over in June.” He had not heard of the character and admits, “I hadn’t read the books before. But it’s a great thing to be a part of, and it did very well last year.”

The Brit actor goes on to say he knows of additional casting but can’t name names outside of saying the rumors online are all false. He does appear to be ready for the spotlight although he seems to know where most of it will be shining, “I doubt I’ll get the same sort of adulation as Robert – but it’s always nice when people recognise you for your work.”

New Moon is currently set for release on November 20 from Summit with Chris Weitz directing. Campbell-Bower joins a cast made up of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Jackson Rathbone, Dakota Fanning, Chaske Spencer, Bronson Pelletier, Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon and Tyson Houseman.
