Here is an article about Daniel from last week in Australia….

Read what he has to say:

But out enjoying his first trip to Australia he’s yet to be spotted by Twihards.

“I’ve just walked around the whole city,” Cudmore told AAP in Sydney.

“For some reason people don’t associate me with some of the roles I’ve played.

“I think a lot of people in the city looked at me wondering what sport I play.”

TWILIGHT fans should keep their eyes peeled this weekend, because they may just see vampires and werewolves wandering around Australia’s biggest cities.

Daniel Cudmore, who plays evil Volturi vampire Felix, and Booboo Stewart, who plays young werewolf Seth Clearwater, are among the stars of the Twilight Saga movies in Sydney and Melbourne for the Australian Twilight Convention.

At 6-feet-7 (1.83 metres), muscle-bound Canadian actor Cudmore isn’t hard to miss.

But out enjoying his first trip to Australia he’s yet to be spotted by Twihards.

“I’ve just walked around the whole city,” Cudmore told AAP in Sydney.

“For some reason people don’t associate me with some of the roles I’ve played.

“I think a lot of people in the city looked at me wondering what sport I play.”

Cudmore did start out as a football player in Canada, before getting into stunt work and acting.

His breakthrough role came in the X-Men films, using his height to his advantage playing Colossus.

The fantasy films have plenty of fans, but Cudmore says it’s nothing compared to the reaction to the Twilight series.

“It’s more intense, there’s so much more passion,” he said.

“I think maybe because it’s a newer phenomenon, whereas X-Men has been around for such a long time through the comic books and the movies.”

Cudmore’s character Felix is a Volturi thug whose day-to-day job is “tearing apart other vampires”.

He says Felix is a nasty piece of work, but a joy to play.

“He’s an angry vampire, he doesn’t really get much respect, and he’s been around for thousands of years … and he’s just really, really good at what he does,” Cudmore said.

“It’s a fun character – it’s fun to play someone dark, who goes on the animal side and enjoys it.”

The physical role included a fight scene with Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward.

Pattinson is a heartthrob to Twilight fans the world over, but Cudmore said the handsome actor was keen to do as much of his own stunt work as possible.

“Rob’s a great guy, he’s really game for anything,” Cudmore said.

“He was nervous at first, because he was like, ‘you know I’m not the most athletic guy out there, I don’t think I’m going to be able to do this’.

“After rehearsing for a few hours he was really, really having a good time with it. He had a blast.”

Twilight fans can get up close to Cudmore, Stewart, and co-stars Gil Birmingham (Billy Black) and Christian Serratos (Bella’s friend Angela) at the Twilight Conventions in Sydney and Melbourne on April 24 and 25.

The third Twilight film, Eclipse, will be released in Australia on July 1.
