Jackson Rathbone, while attending last night’s first showing of Man On A Ledge, insisted in relation to what Twilight admirers have to look forward to from co-star Kristen Stewart as a vampire in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.
Speaking to Hollywood Life, he prattled, “You finally get to see Bella realize herself as a vampire,”.
“And that is fun for everybody. You know she is such a powerful force. Kristen really brings this animosity to Bella that we haven’t seen during the course of these films. It is really exciting to see Kristen step up and really bear her teeth, so to speak.”
Kristen Stewart herself told Box Office Magazine last fall that she quite appreciated embracing the task of depicting a vampire for Part 2. “It was a strange experience walking on set the first time I played a scene as a vampire because I ‘d watched everyone around me doing it all the time. I sound so lame, but vampire Bella really is my favorite character– she’s very representative of a matriarch. She’s very intuitive on almost a psychic level and no one ever acknowledges it, which is interesting,” she described.
She must’ve accomplished something right since she even impressed Twilight Saga author Stephenie Meyer, who told USA Today last March, “She’s created a new character. I was really impressed … I’ve only really seen her as (the human) Bella so to have her step up and change it in the right way– she didn’t have to talk to me. She knew. She knows the character so well now. She has really good instincts and, she looks amazing.”
