In case you missed our previous coverage, here’s video and complete transcripts of the Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and The Cullen (Peter Facinelli, Liz Reaser, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone and Ashley Greene) press conferences. There were moments where he threatened to just actually get the camera himself and film it. He always had a camera wrapped around his neck and he was documenting the whole process. It was a scene, towards the end of the film, in the midst of the big battle, and it was raining and cold.While you may have thought we were done posting coverage, I’ve still got a few one on one video interviews left to post but I’m saving those till closer to release. But until those interviews get online, I’ve got another press conference and this one is with Chaske Spencer, Alex Meraz and Julia Jones. There were so many characters in it, so it was pretty chaotic on set, and it all had to happen really, really fast.I have a younger brother, who’s about the same age as some of them, so there was something that resonated, initially. I had never read the books before, but I actually had a very good friend of mine tell me about this role of Leah Clearwater. We were running and it was raining and there was about a foot of water. And, the scene that they used, where we run up to Jacob, if you look at me, I’m in the back with a smirk on my face because they used that take, the moment after me slipping. What I like about it is that it’s finally brought us to a place where we’re not always playing with the leather and feather. It’s up to the media as well to accept us as other than being just the mystical figures and speaking with accent all the time. The kids are more accepting of us than anything else. Julia: What excites me is that we’re being put in front of children and people who are in the process of defining their ideas of what Native Americans are.But, over the course of filming and some of the press that we’ve been doing, it’s like home. She said, “They’re going to make a movie out of it, and it’s you. And then, when I got the call for the audition, all I heard was, “You have an audition on Monday for Leah Clearwater in Twilight,” and I had this visceral reaction. My background is in dancing and I feel like I’m really good on my feet. You’ll be able to dig into the floor better and you’ll get more traction.” So, we had to cut the corner and everyone else did it great. I think that’s probably the most valuable aspect of the way that Native Americans are portrayed in this film. It’s not quite normalized to most people who grew up watching most Native movies, like Dances with Wolves, Geronimo and all of those.’” Dating is super-hard when you’re famous: “Dating is a hard, hard thing when you have this job.Sometimes I wish I could just go back to Florida and, like, date my home-town boyfriend.
Reminds me of what Sarah wrote in her Stewart Career Prospectus Full Story Now that Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and the major producers of the Twilight franchise have left Vancouver, the lower tier actors are walking on looser leashes.Like we’ve done for the previous coverage, you can either watch the video of the press conference or read a transcript after the jump: Julia: You know, it happened really fast. You’re with a bunch of great people and in a gorgeous place, doing what you love.All of a sudden, I was thrown into this group of boys and, for me personally, I was a tomboy growing up, so it felt really familiar. Alex: I think the hardest scene is the scene she was talking about. What I like about it is that it has brought us to pop culture in a way that’s never been done before in film. I’ve been working for about 10 years, and Alex and Julia have also been around and working.Frankly, after the atrocity that was Twilight New Moon, we needed some amusement.Full Story We discuss this all the time, how I can be so fickle.
