As you know, Cameron Bright ("Alec" in the Twilight series films) has been in Baton Rouge, Louisiana over the past few months filming his parts for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.
In January, he tweeted, "Yesterday was Volturi photo shoot and press day. Not sure when the interviews for media will be aired so stay tune[d]."
Well, evidently, one of those press day interviews has made its way to the surface because a local Louisiana journalist, Jim Brown, spoke with Cameron Bright about Breaking Dawn.
In it, Bright discusses his take on why the Twilight series films have become such a worldwide phenomenon. For him, it seems, it's the identification fans feel with the characters.
"I'd say it started with the books . . . it definitely started with the books. And I think the reason the books made it so far . . . is that it's not just fourteen or fifteen year old girls, it's almost forty, fifty year old mothers and grandmothers . . . Everybody can find something that they relate to in the books . . . it becomes a part of you, and I think that's why these movies have blown up, because everyone can relate to them . . . ."
