Here are some pics of Eclipse star Julia Jones who plays werewolf Leah Clearwater! Below is an interview to go with them!
Eric Grigorian for The Boston Globe
Julia Jones, shown at Griffith Park in Los Angeles, says that when she arrived on the “Eclipse” set, she was immediately impressed by the professionalism of her younger co-stars, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner. “My overall observation was that they just have it down. Kristen steps in and out of character. Rob – same thing. Taylor, too. It’s been incredible on a bunch of levels.” Of meeting heartthrob Pattinson, Jones said: “It did throw me a little bit when I was introduced to Rob and he had a British accent. I was like, oh right, he’s British.”
Jamaica Plain native Jones attended “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” premiere in November. She said she was overwhelmed by the tens of thousands of fans who were going crazy for her werewolf co-stars on the red carpet. Jones told the Globe, “The funny thing is that because I hadn’t done any press and had just finished filming my first installment, nobody recognized me.”
Jones knows that her upcoming role in “Eclipse” will probably open many doors in Hollywood. “I’ve definitely noticed that I have a lot more meetings, and meeting people who probably wouldn’t have taken the time out of their busy schedules to meet me six months ago. I’m sure it is easier to get me in on certain projects.”
Jones says “Twlight” fans shouldn’t be worried about “Eclipse.” She promises it will be good – and true to the series. “It’s going to look so cool,” Jones said, beaming. “That’s one of my favorite parts of this franchise – each one of the installments is a completely different movie. They can get away with that because they have Melissa Rosenberg, the same screenwriter, and they have [author] Stephenie Meyer, who has enough input.”
