CN: What was it like working with Rob and Kristin?
BS: It was incredible! They’re very nice people. I wasn’t sure what they would be like at first but finally getting to meet them was really nice.
CN: Is it safe to say that your career blew up after “Eclipse”?
BS: It’s definitely getting closer and it’s going really good right now. It helps with music and roles for other movies.
CN: So I caught wind that you joined the “House of the Damned 3D” cast. Can you tell me what your role is going to be?
BS: Well, we’re still in negotiations so I can’t say much about it now. But I’m really excited to be a part of it.
CN: You are a quadruple threat. Do you have any other special talents?
BS: I can fold a shirt really fast!
CN: Out of everything that you do what is your favorite?

CN: In “Breaking Dawn,” Seth transforms into a wolf. What would you transform into?
BS: A monkey. They’re pretty cool.
CN: Was it fun playing a werewolf?
BS: It was great. I wish I had more input on what it looked like but they did such an incredible job making it look so realistic.
CN: What was the hardest thing about transforming from a teenager to a teen wolf?
BS: The hardest part was doing the voice-overs and making the growling noise. It was more embarrassing than hard, actually.
CN: As far as your future, what would be your dream role?
BS: I would love to play Aladdin in “Arabian Nights.”
CN: So can you tell me what’s in store for Seth in “Breaking Dawn Part II”?

CN: Other than the movies, do you have any other upcoming projects?
BS: Well, I started in music so my sister and I still do our music. We will be going on tour in March. You should look it up, it’s called Digitour.
