. Read more below:
You were cast as Emily Young
, the fiancée of Sam Uley over 800 other actresses. How did you react when you were told you had been cast?Tinsel Korey
: I was really excited. Especially since I thought I hadn’t done well on the audition. But I’m also my toughest critic.
The character, Emily is scarred from a previous incident with Sam Uley; can you talk about the time you spent in make up preparing for your role in the Twilight Saga movies.Tinsel Korey
: We had different make up teams for the different movies. For New Moon
the make up took three – four hours on the day; because we had two test days. For Eclipse
they had to do the make up on set and try to match the first teams job, so it ending up taking eight hours, then five hours, then they got it down to three hours. Then in Breaking Dawn
they had a new type of scar material, and it only took two hours. It is quite a process for sure.
Were you sad to say goodbye to filming the Twilight Saga when you finished part 1 of Breaking Dawn
: Of course, it’s a chapter in your life ending. I remember being at dinner with everyone, and was like “Are we all still going to be friends after this ends?”
How has your life changed since being cast in the Twilight Saga?Tinsel Korey
: I guess the amount of attention I get has changed. But how I perceive my reality hasn’t, I always remember to stay humble. As fast as something is given to you, it can be taken away just as fast!
In the movie you are a motherly figure to Sam Uley’s werewolf pack, how are you similar to the character of Emily Young
: I take care of the boys the same way. Always acting like the big sister, and making sure they’re okay.
