Bower portrayed Caius in The Twilight Saga: New Moon and will appear in both Breaking Dawn movies. He also portrayed Gellert Gindelwald in both parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Tim Burton fans might also remember him as the young man who accompanied Sweeney Todd as the demon barber made his way into London.
In the interview, the 22-year old British actor was asked how the Harry Potter and Twilight jobs differed behind-the-scenes.
“Every job is different,” Bower said. “My time on Harry Potter was very, very short, whereas my time on Twilight was quite long and extended. Every job brings a new life experience. I was able to come back home when I was in Potter, whereas when I was in Twilight I was out in Baton Rouge and Vancouver for five months together. Every job should just bring something new and exciting and should help you grow.”
Of course, Bower is not the first person to appear in both Harry Potter and Twilight as the “World’s Sexiest Vampire” Robert Pattinson also starred in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as Cedric Diggory, the young wizard that Harry could not save from Lord Voldemort.
So, who would win a fight between Harry Potter and Edward Cullen?
“Now, I got asked this question the other day, but if it was just the two leads – Edward vs Harry - I said Edward would win in that situation, because once you get the wand out of Harry’s hand, he’s dead,” Bower said. “But, you’ve thrown a new dynamic into it because if it was a team battle, honestly then, I don’t know. I probably have to say the vampires again, they do move at super speed but the other guys have wands and you can stand back, you don’t have to get so close. Who knows? It’s a debate that philosophers have been thinking about for years now!”
