Buring on 'insane' Twilight hype

Twilight actress MyAnna Buring has admitted she finds the hype around the series a bit "insane".

The actress plays vampire Tanya in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Parts 1 and 2, and said although she is a huge fan of the franchise, she doesn't get too caught up in the hype.

She said: "Not hype as in the characters, or the actors playing the characters, because I'm not really wired like that.

"I get excited about things, and I love them but some of that hype is insane - wonderful, but absolutely insane. So I wasn't caught up in the hype in that extreme way, but I definitely was a fan, and when the books came out I read them in a week."

The actress - who has had roles in The Descent, Lesbian Vampire Killers and Kill List - also said she didn't find her part in the bloodsucking saga any more daunting than other projects because of its popularity.

She said: "No, I just felt incredibly excited. I think with the hype around the films, it was never anything that I thought would affect me so much - that was always reserved for the main characters in the story.

"If there's any hysterical hype, it's for the older characters. But any attention I've had has been really lovely and really supportive and welcoming. The Twilight fans are a lot like a family so I would never have felt daunted."

:: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 is out on DVD and Blu-Ray now.
