Stephenie Meyer Recalls Seeing Edward And Bella For The First Time

Our walk down “Twilight” memory lane continues, this time with the woman who started it all: Stephenie Meyer. The authoress stopped by our recent MTV First: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ during which Josh Horowitz asked her to recall the first time she saw Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart as her beloved Edward and Bella.

“The first time I saw these two in character was on camera, and that was really fun,” Stephenie said. “I think the first scene I saw was in the forest with the ’How old are you?’ [scene]. That was the first thing I saw. It was pretty amazing.”

In fact, Stephenie (who served as a producer for the franchise’s latter films) didn’t even watch a screen test until the series’ second installment.

“I didn’t get to see the screen tests with any of them except for Taylor for ’New Moon,’ and I do remember that, because it was really good,” she recalled. “[Director] Chris Weitz sent it to me, and I thought, ’Oh, Taylor, wow!’ You were pretty good too, Kristen.”
