“Breaking Dawn — Part 2” builds up to a dramatic showdown between the Cullens and their allies and the Volturi — or “Team Aro,” as Sheen dubbed them. Although the filmmakers devised an exciting twist ending, shooting it required the actors to endure the monotony of facing off in the fake snow for weeks. Like his immortal character, he began to long for a break in the boredom.
“Towards the last day of the battle scene — and I think it might exist on the DVD — there was this huge dance that happened, where the Cullens ... suddenly went into this choreographed dance routine to ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).' It was fantastic! That broke the boredom, for once,” he said.
Not surprisingly, he got into the uproarious spirit of the supernatural dance-off.
“Michael Sheen had some of the craziest moves because he really incorporated his character into his moves,” said Nikki Reed, who plays Cullen adoptee Rosalie Hale, in a separate presser. “So we were like coming towards him ... and Michael Sheen was just being like really fierce ... It was just very funny. He's great.”
