‘Twilight’ Mania Grips BlogTalkRadio as ‘Eclipse’ Opens Nationwide

It all started back in April 2009 when Taylor Lautner dropped in on Stardish Radio from the set of New Moon to deliver the latest Twilight dish.

During that live interview, more than 30,000 rabid fans logged onto BlogTalkRadio—and hung on Taylor’s every word—while another 200,000 listened on-demand.twilight-mania3

Since then, many of the cast members from the smash-hit series have graced our network, sharing tidbits about their characters, their personal lives, and behind-the-scenes action on the set.

"It wasn't really that difficult," Gil (above—and locomoting like a mofo) tells us of adapting to Billy's inability to walk.

Gil Birmingham—who plays the wheelchair- bound Billy Black in the smash-hit Twilight series —is as spiritual in real life as he is on the silver screen (albeit practical, too).

Interviewed on Artists on Demand Radio, the San Antonio, Texas, native discusses Billy’s corporeal limitations.

“The essence of characters aren’t really determined by whatever physical challenges they might have,” he tells host Ashleigh Cook.

“I think that’s maybe what I have in common with the character Billy. The soul and essence of an individual isn’t determined by just Continue reading

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."

“It speaks to the longing that I think we all have, to love and to wanna be loved—and higher aspirations of ourselves.

“That’s why I feel proud to be part of it: It’s not filled with graphic violence or gratuitous sex. It makes you feel good.”

Gil also chats about the hit flick’s forthcoming sequels, New Moon and Eclipse.

“I’m so happy that the storyline’s gonna follow more of ‘the puppy pack,’ as I call them, and the wolves and the development of the story with my son, Jacob,” he says.

“We just finished filming Eclipse and it’s very, very rare to Continue reading
