Kirsten Prout: Lucy is the First Villain I've Played

Kirsten Prout made headlines last year when it was announced she’d nabbed the role of Lucy in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

The 19-year-old actress recently sat down with IESB to chat about her role, dealing with the paparazzi in Vancouver and if she’s ever return to television after Kyle XY. Check it:

On playing a villain: “I’ve always been on the good side. I’ve never played a villain, in my entire career. I’m the girl next door, or the girl who helps out, or the girl that makes an innocent escape. For once, I got to look all innocent and have that angelic quality, and then, all of a sudden, turn into something really dark. That was fun for me. That was the first villain that I’ve ever played.”

On her first experience with the paparazzi in Vancouver: “The first day that Jackson came into work, he almost tripped on the stairs, coming out of his house, because there were so many photographers that he couldn’t even see. The circus around all the trailers and everything was crazy. They had giant black dividers to keep paparazzi out. On the first day, they took down all the signage and blocked everything out. All the actors had to wear bathrobes to cover their wardrobe in between scenes. It was really intense.”

On if she’d return to a scripted television series: “Yeah, totally. The thing with my career is that I’ve never said, “I’m only going to do this. I’m only going to do that.” For me, seeing material that I like is the most important part. I look for something that I’m passionate about. If a television series came my way and I read the script and loved it, I would totally do another television series.”
