Actor Reveals Secret Acting Method for Famous Northwest Movie
Ever wonder what an actor is thinking as they are auditioning for a roll in a movie? Recently in an interview with Elle Magazine, Robert Pattinson shared his thoughts when he was trying out for arguably his most famous roll, Edward Cullen in the movie Twilight.
He admits that around that time in his life he got very nervous for auditions and would have a really had time sleeping. The night before his audition he had terrible anxiety and he told his agent “I don’t want to go to the audition anymore.” She then told him to relax and gave him a Valium to help him sleep. He says in the interview that he “had never taken a Valium before, and (I) just remember feeling so glorious in the back of the taxi with the window open like, wow this is what I have been missing.”
He goes on to attribute his getting the roll to the way he must have acted while in the drug. He goes on to say “I had this kind of quite spacey detached kind of thing in the audition which must have kind of worked for the character.”
They ended up loving his audition and the rest is Northwest movie history.
The prescrition drug Valium is also known as Diazepam and is used to treat "anxiety, alcohol withdrawal, and seizures. It is also used to relieve muscle spasms and to provide sedation before medical procedures. This medication works by calming the brain and nerves. Diazepam belongs to a class of drugs known as benzodiazepines" according to webMD. They go on to give the warnings, "Though it helps many people, this medication may sometimes cause addiction. This risk may be higher if you have a substance use disorder (such as overuse of or addiction to drugs/alcohol). Take this medication exactly as prescribed to lower the risk of addiction. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details."
