We’ve had a preview of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart getting sexy as Edward and Bella on their honeymoon in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” and now Cullen patriarch Peter Facinelli has some more secrets from the movie’s set. When MTV News caught up with Facinelli on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday (January 16), he revealed what Stewart’s Bella is like as a vampire.
“She’s doing really well. She looks fantastic,” he raved about Stewart’s transition to a vampire for the final films in the series. “For some reason, once they put those contact lenses in, you look very statuesque.”
Facinelli wouldn’t go into detail about shooting the last two films in the franchise with director Bill Condon and the rest of the “Breaking Dawn” crew, but he did admit that things have been very action-packed. “We’ve been shooting the last two weeks with a lot of vampires,” he said. “I don’t want to give away too much, but if you’ve read the books, it’s the standoff with lots of vampires in play. There’s like 70 people going through the works at once. It’s a little maddening, but fun.
“We shot pretty much the ending of the two movies the other day,” he added about how much time the cast has left on-set. “But we shoot until mid-April.”
MTV News recently spoke to Facinelli’s co-star Ashley Greene about that fight sequence against the Volturi, and she expressed her excitement about it as well. “As a cast, we like to do as many of our own stunts as possible, so it’s fun and challenging to shoot those scenes,” she said. “Jeff Imada, the stunt coordinator, is such a blast to work with as well. I’m learning so much from him.”
