SayWhatNews: When did you realize you wanted to be an actor?
Tyson: I never really came to a realization that this was something I wanted to pursue. It just sort of happened. New Moon was the first audition that I had ever been to in my life. It was actually an open casting call, and I found out about it from a friend. I thought that it would be a good experience to have, and I never once expected that I would get it. But I did the open casting call, and I got a callback the next week. When they sent me the lines I had to learn for the callback, the casting director told me that there were two different scenes, one really long one and another really short one. He told me I only had to do the short one and they wouldn’t have time to do the long one and it wouldn’t even be in the film. But I learned the long scene anyways and when I did the callback I did the short scene and afterwards I asked if I could do the long one too, and they said yes. A week later I got a call saying I had gotten the part.
I think Tyson being prepared and asking to do the longer scene at the callback is what got him the part. Late congrats Tyson!
