Billy Black Actor Gil Birmingham: ‘Twilight’ Is Shakespeare

We’d never thought of it this way, but Gil Birmingham may be right: The Twilight series does owe a debt to William Shakespeare—namely, the bard’s most romantic play.

Interviewed on Neyom Friday, the actor who plays Billy Black—whose son is werewolf Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner)—offers his take on why Twilight is so captivating and addictive to audiences the world over.

“It’s the story of Romeo and Juliet. I think people tap into the heart more than anything. And that’s what they feel, even if it is a fantasy story,” Gil tells host Neyom Friday.

“It’s been spoken of before, but nobody has ever witnessed it or experienced it,” Gil (above with Taylor) tells us of Jacob’s transformation into a werewolf in “New Moon."
