<p><span></span>Like his <em>New Moon</em> character, Sam Uley, <strong>Chaske</strong> (pronounced Chess-kay) <strong>Spencer </strong>proved to be leader of the pack on set in Vancouver, British Columbia. "I was the older brother or father figure," he told <em>Life & Style</em> during an exclusive photo shoot with costar <strong>Charlie Bewley</strong> on Nov. 4 in LA. "I'm very protective of <strong>Taylor Lautner</strong>, <strong>Alex Meraz</strong> and <strong>Kiowa Gordon</strong>. We can get on each other's nerves, but it's just like a family." British export Charlie Bewley, who plays Volturi vampire Demetri, crossed the pond to make his big-screen debut in <em>New Moon</em> -- and life will never be the same! "I haven't really absorbed the whole thing," he admitted during <em>Life & Style</em>'s exclusive New Moon shoot. "But I'm working out a rapid autograph style now. It's coming along nicely."</p>
L&S: You and Taylor both gained 30 pounds of muscle. Did you hold weight-lifting contests?
Chaske Spencer: We were all really competitive and supportive of one another. One time, I had the highest score on this rowing machine, and the next day I came in and Rob [Pattinson] had beaten me -- he worked out at night, and the wolves came in during the day. I beat him again, but on the last day of shooting, I came in and he'd beaten me by a second.
L&S: Do people ever ask you to take off your shirt?
Chaske Spencer: All the time! Just seeing myself shirtless on the posters makes me very self-conscious. When the Twilight saga's over, I'm not going to the gym for a while.
L&S: This is your first movie. What was it like working with veteran Dakota Fanning?
Charlie Bewley: She's wonderful. The most impressive thing is the way she works the camera with her eyes. Dakota has a wonderful stillness for a 15-yearold actress. It's something most people don't master in a lifetime.
L&S: Do girls swoon over your accent, or are they unable to understand you?
Charlie Bewley: It's a bit of both. I've never been asked out by an American woman, though. The one physical commonality my girlfriends have had is that they have disproportionately large heads. It's kind of weird.
