MTV was able to catch up with Eclipse hottie Jackson Rathbone and he dished on RPattz, Eclipse, Jasper Hale and more!
MTV:Out of the new characters joining the franchise for “New Moon,” which is your favorite?
Jackson Rathbone:My favorite character in “New Moon” that wasn’t in “Twilight”? I guess my favorite character in “New Moon” is a collective — the Volturi. It’s one of those things that’s really nice to see, these decadent older vampires that run this vampire society, if you will. I think they’re an amazing group of actors that we were able to get for the film, and they are very scary and intimidating. They’re all perfect — I mean, Dakota Fanning is a terrifying Jane; absolutely terrifying.
MTV:You guys have all spent so much time together over the last few years. When the cameras stop rolling on set, what do you guys talk about?
Rathbone:Between takes? We just kinda talk about regular things, you know. We’re all normal people — we’re not vampires in real life. Between takes, we’re talking about music we like or what we plan to do once the filming is done. I always bring my guitar with me and my harmonica, and Nikki Reed, Rob and Kristen and a lot of the cast are very musically inclined. So, a lot of times we’ll just be jamming between takes, to blow off some of the emotional intensity and have a little fun.
“Eclipse” has found its Maria, and she’s full of grace.
Producers on Summit’s third “Twilight” pic have cast Catalina Sandino Moreno, best-known for playing the title character in the indie drama “Maria Full of Grace,” to play the vampire character of Maria.”
