M Show more On his character Carlisle: I've mourned all of my characters but I haven't really mourned him yet. Maybe in December, I'll have a little vigil for Carlisle. Usually, when I wrap a character, there's a three-to-five day depression that I go through because a part of you is gone. You'll never get to play that character again. I got so used to playing Carlisle, though, that I never had to mourn the loss of him because I knew I would revisit him at some point. When we wrapped last time, I think we shot for six months. I wasn't ready to mourn him; I was just thankful to be done. I knew that also I would have Comic-Con and there would be press [for the movie], so he is kind of still with me. But I think in December, there is no more to talk about. It'll be complete. Hide

You Show more What I like about the third movie is you get to see a side of Carlisle you haven't seen before. You actually get to see what his vampire capabilities are because there's some great battle sequences. It's my favorite book. Carlisle is holding on to that humanity. He doesn't want to be a vampire.

I guess the range of roles I play on film stem from the range of roles I play in real life. Hide

I don't want to give away too much, but if you've read the books, it's the standoff with lots of vampires in play. There's like 70 people going through the works at once. It's a little maddening, but fun. We shot pretty much the ending of the two movies the other day. Hide

I like being able to put a smile on people's faces and letting them know what I'm doing. Hide

I was going from Vancouver to New York every three days. For me, it was really invigorating. Hide

I get bored if I do the same thing over and over. When I look back at the characters I've played, they've all been so distinctly different from each other. "Mike Dexter" from Can't Hardly Wait (1998) is completely different than the character I played in The Scorpion King (2002), which is completely different than the Riding in Cars with Boys (2001) role or the role I played on Damages (2007). Put that next to the guy that I played in Fastlane (2002), then put the character in "Fastlane" next to Twilight (2008)'s "Carlisle", and put that character next to Nurse Jackie (2009)'s "Dr. Cooper", and they're all so vastly different that, whenever my agent says, "What do you want to do next?", I say, "Whatever I haven't done before". I like shaking it up and doing different things. Hide

They've treated us so well, at Comic-Con especially. But just because the movies are over doesn't mean the fans will disappear. I hope. Otherwise it will be me standing outside with a bunch of markers and no one who wants an autograph. Hide

And then I think we had a wrap party in Canada. But people wrap at different times, so by the time we got to the wrap party in Canada, a lot of the cast had been wrapped. It's not like there was a big final day where everyone was gone. We shot the wedding scene last, which I think Bill [Condon] did on purpose, because almost everyone was in the wedding scene. We got to all say good-bye to each other on set, but it was like four o'clock in the morning, in the rain, after we had been shooting for like 16 hours. So everyone was diving for their cars. Hide

And then you come to Comic-Con and people camp out for days and it puts things to perspective, like how amazing movies are and how movies can bring groups of people together for their passion, and they make friends... I thing anytime something can bring people together in a positive way it's a great thing. Hide

I never did a play until college. I was not outspoken when I was younger and I hated being the center of attention. But I had a dream of being an actor. I went to NYU and studied theatre. I learned a craft. And began my career straight out of college. Hide

If I look back on my career I am happy that I have gotten to play a wide variety of different roles, from Mike Dexter, to Van Ray in Fastlane (2002), to Dr. Cullen to Coop. Hide
