Edward Cullen doesn’t appear very much in New Moon the book, and to give him more screen time in the movie, they devised new scenes where he appears in Bella’s visions and dreams. I’m not sure how that’s going to work in the movie, but according to Robert Pattinson, it was the easiest thing he ever did.
Inside a lengthy interview with Australia’s Film Ink Magazine (see scans here), Pattinson calls filming The Twilight Saga: New Moon the most “stress-free job” he’s ever had:
It wasn’t just the director that made this one different. It was so different as well because we knew what type of animal we were dealing with. I have much more of a supporting role in this one. I started three weeks after they started shooting, and I did a lot of my first work doing the apparition scenes [when he appears to Bella as a vision]. It was actually one of the most relaxing jobs that I’ve ever done. Chris Weitz has a really peaceful presence, and I got on really well with him. I pretty much had a stress-free job for three months. I did very little! Chris Weitz and the special effects team designed this thing that basically just allowed me to stand on a green box and stay relatively expressionless, and all these machines did the acting for me — that’s the way I like it! All the pressure was on Taylor Lautner in this film!
I wonder if that makes Lautner feel better or worse.01Post a Comment
