THE TWILIGHT SAGA’s Daniel Cudmore (Felix of the Volturi) video interview

I first took notice of Daniel Cudmore in X-MEN 2 and 3, in which he played Colossus, one of my favorite of the Marvel mutants.  Granted, in X2 we only saw a few brief glimpses of Daniel as the metallic hero, but X-MEN: THE LAST STAND gave us plenty more.  These days Cudmore is contributing to the swooning teenage girl population of the world by starring as “Felix”, the Volturi baddie, in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON, ECLIPSE, and soon to be seen in BREAKING DAWN.  We had Daniel as a special guest at the Dallas Comic Con earlier in the year, but I never got a decent chance to chat with the guy, and at this year’s DragonCon we found time to sit down for a relaxed interview.  I spoke to Cudmore about his experiences meeting the fans, his thoughts on working with Bill Condon (DREAMGIRLS) for BREAKING DAWN, and even asked if he’d ever consider playing a role like The Man of Steel – which would be fitting, right?  He’s already played one man of steel, why not another?  I can tell you that Daniel truly is one of the nicest people I’d ever had the pleasure of meeting, and genuinely loves his fans.  You can follow him on Twitter as well… just tell him @markwalters74 sent ya!
