Billy Burke has an exclusive new interview with Assignment X, talking about playing the lead in the TV show ‘Revolution’ as well as Bella Swan’s father in the Twilight films.
When talking about the last Twilight film and how the saga is finally coming to an end, Burke says, “Those four years – obviously, they changed my career for the better. I owe a lot to that, I had a great time with all those people, I loved playing him. It can’t go on forever – it would become cartoonish. So I think it ran its course really nicely.”
He also talks about Revolution and when asked about what he thinks fan should know about the show, he says, “I really do think people are going to be surprised by the scope of this show and how it’s ever-expanding. It starts out big and it just keeps getting bigger, but within that, just the action and adventure, it really does have just so much heart.”
Burke also adds that while science fiction as a genre was never a personal favorite, some of his favorite movies in the past have ended up being sci-fi – “I didn’t think of myself as a kid as a science-fiction fan – I wasn’t a rabid fan of mostly science fiction. I was a fan of the movies as a kid. As a matter of fact, I was watching movies that were way too adult for me at a very early age. SHAMPOO was one of my favorite movies when I was eleven years old. What’s not to like? Warren Beatty and that whole team. LOGAN’S RUN – I think I saw that movie ten, eleven times when I was a kid. But in terms of that specific sci-fi genre, not really. I loved watching stories come to life.”
