SEGN recently posted the first part of their interview with Julia Jones, who has been cast to play Leah Clearwater! (Part 2 will be released later in August)
Some highlights include:
On Vanessa Hudgens rumored to be auditioning as Leah: “No. No truth to that.”
Audition Process: “It wasn’t too tricky. David really spent some time working on the character with me.”
When she found out she got the role: “Maybe the last day of July”
On reading the books: “I got very obsessive and went through all 4 of them. In the last week and a half, I’ve read the first 3. I just finished Eclipse today. I think the books are incredible. Stephenie Mayer managed to capture a level of humanity, especially with Bella’s character. Her inner thoughts are the similar thoughts you’ve ha d in similar situations but they’re so deep down, ones that you sometimes don’t even admit to yourself.”
Starts shooting: mid-September
In the rest of the interview, Julia discusses not meeting the cast yet, and more about her fav parts of the book, how she’s prepared and more. In Part 2, she goes more in-depth about her character, Breaking Dawn, filming in Vancouver, and how she is preparing for this Twilight madness. Plus, she answers fan questions! Stay tuned.
