As “The Twilight Saga” comes to a close, fans will finally get a chance to see Kristen Stewart’s Bella transform into a vampire in “Breaking Dawn”. Her onscreen husband, Robert Pattinson, admits that seeing Stewart hang out onset as one of the undead seems to be a natural thing for the actress.
“It’s like she wanted to do it the entire time,” he told MTV News over the weekend. “It’s really funny, it’s like a completely different environment onset when she’s a vampire and when she’s not. I think she’s going to do it really well.”
Pattinson’s onscreen dad, Peter Facinelli, also had only accolades for Stewart as she officially joins the Cullen clan in the franchise’s final films.
“She’s doing really well. She looks fantastic,” Facinelli raved . “For some reason, once they put those contact lenses in, you look very statuesque.”
Fans are not only excited to see Stewart as a vampire, they’re also stoked to see all the action go down in the epic “Breaking Dawn” battle scene, which Pattinson explained has been a bit of a daunting process to shoot.
“There’s like a 27-minute sequence in the final sequence, and it takes forever to shoot,” he said. “There’s about 75 people in it. Being on a piece of fake snow surrounded by green screen for like a month, it’s driving me absolutely insane.”
It will be some time before the films hit theaters, but fans have already gotten the chance to see Bella and Edward in bed together.
“I love how they release that for the first one,” he said sarcastically about the honeymoon sneak peek photo featuring the pair naked in bed together. “They just give it all away.
“It’s always awkward [doing a sex scene], in a way, doing it with anybody,” he admitted. “But at the same time … it really depends on how it’s staged and stuff. It’s like doing Twister.”
