My favorite thing about playing a vampire is the stunts. It's just a new, fun thing to do. Especially as a girl, being able to be all dolled up in heels and little outfits and be able to kick boys' butts, I think it's a really fun, make-believe world to play.
I'd be totally exhausted by mid-afternoon, and I could barely climb the stairs at home.

I knew something was wrong, but I had no idea what.

A couple days before the stunts, if I'm doing something particularly dangerous, I will go over every worst-case scenario in my head, like this could happen, this could happen, this could happen, this could happen. I try to think about that to where it's ingrained in me.
I am the poet of the high wire - I never do stunts; I do theatrical performances.

I'm an athletic actor. I'm known for my action; I'm a guy who does my own stunts on screen.
I love physical kinds of comedy and getting down and dirty and doing stunts. When I was growing up, I was always getting into fights with guys and usually punching out boys my age because I was a lot bigger and tougher.
