Meet The New "New Moon" Cast Members

Let's check the new cast members out shall we?

*Warning for spoilers*

Charlie Bewley as Demetri

Charlie Bewley, maybe a new team needed? Speculations are going about a Team Demetri at least. We don’t know much about this man; he seems to be very new to the industry and seems to have been picked for the cast rather for his nice looks. We can't say too much more as we don't know anything about his acting skills, but I'm quite sure that he is talented.

Daniel Cudmore as Felix

Daniel is big, very big, and is a real hunk. We have seen him in previous roles such as Colossus in 'X-Men: The Last Stand' and 'Alone in the Dark'. We know from the books that Felix is big and doesn’t have any extra ordinary power, but as Emmet, he is very strong. And Daniel will be able to mirror that very well.

Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus

Now Christopher is a scary dude. He is tall and has a lot of roles as the "bad guy". We know him mostly from TV shows such as 'Stargate: Atlantis' and 'Sanctuary' but we have also seen him in movie's as 'Blade: Trinity' and 'The Chronicles of Riddick'. In New Moon he will be playing one of the Volturi leaders known as Marcus. Marcus has the special gift of sensing the strength behind relationships. Marcus becomes surprised with the strength behind Edwards and Bella’s union.

Cameron Bright as Alec

Cameron is an interesting young actor. He is only 16 years old already has a big CV of movies behind him. We have seen him in movies such as 'Ultraviolet', 'Thank you for smoking' and 'X-Men: The Last Stand'. In New Moon Cameron will be playing the brother of Jane, Alec. Alec is known for his ability to end a person's sensory abilities, so that the one being targeted with his ability won't be able to feel anything at all. In New Moon Alec is supposed to look a lot like Jane and being able to look scary. Cameron with his skills in acting can defiantly bring that to the table.

Michael Sheen as Aro

Michael is the one that is more known then the other new cast members. With 40 years of age he has done a lot of roles and with such charisma and screen presence. Michael really knows how to fill out a role and has in every movie really done all in his power to make a great role. We have seen Michael in movies such as 'Frost/Nixon', 'Blood Diamond', 'The Queen' and ironically as it can seem, we also saw him in the Underworld movies as the werewolf leader Lucian. And now, in New Moon we will see him as the gracious Volturi leader known as Aro, a favorite character for many fans out there. Aro has the ability to read minds, something similar to what Edward can do; the only difference is that Aro need's to touch the one he wants to read the mind from. But that's not enough; Edward can only hear what a person is thinking right now, Aro can pick out everything that a person has thought of or has detailed in his mind. Michaels looks and ability to act is definitely a winning concept of playing Aro in New Moon.

Jamie Campbell Bower as Caius

Jamie put up a lot of fuzz in the fan community when he announced he would be
playing Caius in New Moon. People not seeing Caius just so young, but with makeup,
wigs and lenses, he will definitely look like the Caius I was expecting. Jamie who is mostly known for his role in the musical movie 'Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street' as Anthony will have some big shoes to fill while playing the erratical Volturi leader Caius. Caius has no special ability, when he moves it appears as if he is floating. Jamie's great acting skills will hopefully prove a lot of fans wrong.

Noot Seer as Heidi

Noot Seer is not only a model, she is most utterly beautiful. With her long legs and long hair, she will definitely be able to fill the shoes of Heidi, the beautiful hunter for the Volturi. The role is not big, but it is an essential part in the book, where Bella sees Heidi bringing all these people down for the Volturi to feed.

Graham Greene as Harry Clearwater

Graham is a great actor, and is of Oneida Indian decent. Graham has over a 100 movies under his belt and is a great actor, mostly known for his roles in the movies 'Dances with wolves', 'The Green Mile' and the mini-series 'Into the West'. In New Moon we will see him appearing as Harry Clearwater, father of Seth and Leah, which are more essential characters for Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. Although Grahams role in New Moon won't be that big, it is still very essential for the storyline.

Tinsel Korey as Emily

Tinsel is an actress and a singer/songwriter. Tinsel is of Indian decent just as the rest of the wolf-pack. Tinsel is mostly known for her role in the movie 'The Lookout' and the mini-series 'Into the West'. She is also known for her music. In New Moon she will be playing Emily, Sam's love that he imprinted upon. She is an essential role for the wolf-pack as she is the one practically taking care of them all. Tinsel is a great actress and will be just perfect for the role as Emily.
