New Faces Fridays: Guri Weinberg discusses becoming Romanian vampire Stefan in “Breaking Dawn, Part 2″

September 21, 2012

This week we are featuring Guri Weinberg, Romanian vampire Stefan, in “The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, Part 2.”

What did you think of your costume and your makeup the very first time you saw yourself fully decked out as your character?

Guri Weinberg: Well I loved it. I mean it was a little freaky but I loved it. It was exactly what Michael, who is the head wardrobe guy wanted when we first met and we put on the wardrobe. The eyes were a little weird, cause I don’t wear contact lenses, so it took them half an hour to put them in and then it took me another good half an hour to see through them. So when I actually figured out what I looked like, I was pretty happy with it.

You had never worn contacts before? That’s got to be a crazy situation.

Guri: Ya, it was awful. But because we had a whole department of people that handled the contacts and put them in our eyes. The first two weeks it would drive them crazy because it would take them a good half hour to put them in my eyes and they said you know we are never going to get through this and I said well you should try to be me.
