Twilight talk: 'Dawn' breaks for last time
Here are only a few of the best before "Breaking Dawn: Part 2" debuts to the world on Nov. 16:
Michael Sheen (Aro, left) about his character: "He's just a sentimental old fool who loves to see the young people having fun. Then, he kills them. I really creep myself out in this movie."
Tarzan in another: "When I got into acting, I just fell in love with everything about it and, to me, growing up in the Midwest, just stepping back and thinking about what might be a dream role, I just loved "The Monkey Man." He's much like my character in "Twilight." Emmet is the monkey man and so, to make that transition, it was all quite fun for me. I fell in love with the brilliant script, which is so much more contemporary and modern. It's all motion capture, which is one of the hardest things I've ever done -- quadrupedding, running, learning how to walk like Tarzan -- which is pretty much a ballerina-esque walk. It took me a couple weeks just to break my -- doom, doom, doom -- Emmet walk."
Bill Condon ("Breaking Dawn" director) on some of the humor in "Part 2": "Yes, it is an epic action movie with vampires. Some of them have to be funny just because vampires are really crazy."
Elizabeth Reaser (Esme Cullen, left) on how her character has influenced her: "I really appreciate Esme's sweetness and kindness and generosity of spirit and her ability to wear heels and dresses 24 hours a day. My preference, you know, would to be in sweatpants. So, I do think that being Esme for so many years really has influenced my ability to throw on a pair of heels and a pencil skirt. Besides, that, I would like to think that she's made me a better person, but that's just wishful thinking."
Look for more on "Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part 2," including a review and more star comments from Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, next week at Sun News.
