Twilight Breaking Dawn Interview

-Well done Bella. I've never seen a newborn show that kind of restraint. -I'm not sure she is a newborn. She's so tame. -Emmett, don't antagonize her. She's the strongest one in the house. -Please. -It's Breaking Dawn Part 2. It's finally over. It's a bittersweet. How-- How-- How are you feeling about the end of this whole huge franchise? -You know, it's-- it's an amazing experience. -Uh huh. -You know, it's been-- it's been four or five years now,-- -Uh huh. -Living with these characters and so to kind of, you know, take away the makeup and the contacts and kind of put away Jasper's boots is-- -Uh huh. -it's-- it's definitely exciting. It's, you know,-- It's kind of like-- It's--It's a new beginning in a lot of ways. -Uh huh. -And what are you gonna miss most about the whole franchise? And more specifically, what are you gonna miss about playing Jasper? -About the franchise, I think I'm gonna miss really the-- just the fans. -Uh huh. -You know, every time, we would show up to an event to the-- to the premieres, they'd just be, you know, so loving, so supportive-- -Uh huh. -so excited about a new movie coming out and that was rumor from the very first Twilight. We had no idea, you know, like we're making basically an independent film-- -Uh huh. -about vampires-- -Yeah. -who don't kill people. So, it's kinda like, I hope people like it. -Yeah. -And you know, the-- the premiere was so amazing and so exciting and it's just only gotten better and grown-- -Uh huh. and that's where I kind of-- kind of-- the most exciting thing about Jasper, I was like-- it was really just kind of fun playing this character who's kind of quiet and creepy. -Yeah. -I-- I really enjoyed that. I've always been a character actor and to-- -Uh huh. -kind of get a chance to-- to play one of the newest to the vegetarian vampire with life, I really wanted to kind of have him be set apart, you know. -Okay. -Let me-- Let's go back like to the very, very beginning of-- -Let's go back. -Let's go back. -We do fade away you know-- -Yeah. We can. -of this, so we do this kind of like the cameras are-- -And we-- we-- we flashed back to the very-- like you've heard about the project. Were you familiar with the books? And what was your audition process like? Did-- Were you just aware of how the scope and scale of this franchise would be? -[unk], looking back at the beginning, it was much more just, you know, my agents called me up the night, "Oh, we got this audition for you. You know, there's this book. You should go read it." Picked up the-- the Twilight book and,-- -Uh huh. -you know, I read it and it was like that. It was just really interesting. Oh, it's interesting kind of like story, an interesting take on the vampire genres,-- -Uh huh. -new, and never really been kind of done in that perspective before. It's a very nice kind of Romeo and Juliet style story. -Uh huh. -And-- But I had no idea it was the huge bestselling book or anything. I was just kind-- I was like, "Ah, it's a novel. This is a-- an independent film company, Summit Entertainment. They did-- They do distribution and they're making this movie and that Catherine. We really hit it off and I just had a great time with her. She's actually an eccentric woman and a-- -Uh huh. -wonderful director. And that was-- that was really-- I mean, a lot to do with it. I remember sitting in the waiting room. I brought my guitars. I lived really close to the audition, so I was just kind of like-- likely strumming and kind of waiting for them to call my name. -Uh huh. -I just didn't really think anything of it. I had no idea it was gonna be something that it became. -Uh huh. -Yeah. -And-- So, obviously, I think one of the main things a lot of people are looking forward to, especially the readers and based on the trailers, is this huge epic battle scene. Did you film that blast or was that one of the first things you filmed or-- 'cause that's kind of like the final party. -I guess you would say. -Well, the nice thing about Breaking Dawn Part 2 is it's-- it's such a lead up. It's something we've been really excited to showcase-- -Yeah. -for a long time is, you know, Bella's transformation-- -Uh huh. -and that was such a tease. -Yeah. -At the end of Breaking Dawn Part 1, I think a lot of people in the audience almost didn't wanna leave the theatre. They're ready for the next movie to be out right then and there. And it did really kind of showcase her-- her transformation into-- into a vampire. I think, you know, Kristen Stewart did an incredible job-- -Uh huh. -first and foremost. And then we-- we get confronted by the Volturi over the-- the growth of Renesmee. -Uh huh. -And so they're-- they're gonna come and so there's a lot of recruitment of new vampires, so I think the fans are really gonna be excited to see just all these exciting new vampires-- -Yeah. -with these exciting new powers and I think it will be-- it's gonna be a lot of fun. It's gonna be a-- I think the fans are gonna love it. The ending is-- is It's got you on the edge of your seat for 20 minutes straight. Easy. -Oh. -My family is in danger, I need your help. -The Volturi think Renesmee is an immortal child. -We join you. -We will stand with you. -The packs will fight. We've never been afraid of vampires. -I'll never let anybody hurt you. -Breaking Dawn Part 2. Rated PG13. November 16. Tickets available now.
