New Moon Casts Caius

New Moon Casting: British Up-and-Comer Joins Twilight Family

OK Twilight fans, we have someone to play the Volturi leader and his name is Jamie Campbell-Bower. Based on this particular picture, it appears the young British actor was born to play a vampire (probably has to do with that mess of greasy hair and the guyliner). He's like Robert Pattinson's evil twin, which is about right for this role in New Moon.

The 20-year-old actor brings with him some impressive acting credits already, including roles in RocknRolla and Sweeney Todd.

So this means that several of the important Volturi roles are filled at this point with Dakota Fanning playing Jane, a runway model in the role of Volturi vixen, and now Campbell-Bower as Caius who "forms part of the triumvirate leading the Italian-based coven of vampires." I think we still need an Aro and a Marcus, right? Maybe some Volturi wives?

What do you think of this Caius?

He looks like he should be Alex not Caius.

I think he'll do great. The little I've seen of him has been impressive.

I think he'll do well. Caius is the one who is mean and just wants everyone to go away. I think this kid will be perfect for the role. I'm SO curious to see who plays Aro. LOOOOOOVE Dakota Fanning as Jane, she will be ideal! This kid could almost play Jane's brother too... hmm.... Cant wait til November!!

i think he's hot, but I haven't read the books yet so I coulnd't say if they're supposed to be older.

I think he would make a good vampire, but not Caius, I pictured Caius in his late 30's....this guy looks too young! I'm so excited. Twilight, such an obsession.

CaseyDawn - You may have been speaking rhetorically but just to be clear: I, Buzzsugar, am not casting New Moon :)

I didn't even notice that was the guy from Sweeney Todd! Like others I pictured the Volturi being older but it seems that they are making them physically young like Dakota Fanning.

The Volturi family is supposed to be really old!! Not young!! Aro is supposed to be the oldest isn't he??? why are you guys not casting the roles right?? If your going to cast people for new moon you should cast them as they are in the book!!! You shouldn't be trying to change things! Cast the book right!!!! geez!

I think most of us all picture them old because when you read in the book how long they have been around you just imagine someone older. I imagined them to look more around Carlise's age which is obviously not happening. Once I heard about Dakota Fanning I started to picture them all younger.

I pictured someone older too, but remember vampires don't age..

I also agree with ilanac13; given the right wardrobe and cosmetic effects (also minus the liner), I think he could play the role well. I also imagined someone slightly older looking however this could work. He is a quality actor (loved him in Sweeney Todd.)

ilanac13 I actually agree with you! This may not be the greatest pic but I can see them making it work somehow.

Love the Tom Hardy avatar. Is this the kid that was in Billy Elliot?

he is definitely way too young. i am very disappointed in this choice! he looks like a vampire... but not caius! they ruined the first movie now they are going to mess up the 2nd, grr!!
ilanac13 ilanac13 8 years
you have to remember though that the vampires didn't age after a point, so it's ok that he's young. i think that given the right make-up and costume, he'll do it well. i remember caius from the book having an evil charm and i think that this guy could really pull it off. we'll have to wait and see i guess!

But, Aro is the main leader of the Volturri. Not Caius. Aro is the one that wants Edward and Alice.
