Jackson: I've always liked the vampire genre. Butler in Dracula 2000 is pretty awesome. Shadow of the Vampire is an amazing film. I watch vampire movies like Underworld now.. there are so many different types. That's why I love this series, these vampires are so unique. This world is so brilliant and vibrant. What I love about BD 2 is that we get a sense of these vampires.
Nikki: I feel really sad about it. We shot the last movie almost two years ago, and I've been numb to the idea of the end. It's hard to comprehend. It's been a huge part of all of our lives. It's such a crucial age as well for all of us. It's bizarre.
Elizabeth: I think Nikki is really good at maintaining those types of relationships. Seeing the movie the other day was really emotional. The end of the end of everything. I'm in denial right now. We still have two more days of this, and then we have a premiere. I just keep putting off the melt down.
Nikki: i always feel... I believe strongly in karma, I should've just stolen something, why not? As far as I know we're not making any more of these. The only thing I have from the films is the baseball shoes. I was too afraid of taking them but Kristen did for me when she did reshoots.
Jackson: Well there are lots of surprises - the last 20 minutes of the film are going to be really really exciting for the fans who followed the series for years. What Melissa and Bill brought to the screen play is really amazing and beautiful and harkens back to the very first Twilight and the sense of why it became so popular to begin with.
Nikki: Elizabeth will tell you I'm very maternal because I cooked for her. I love children, I don't want any right now. I love being around them. Mackenzie by the way is the most professional - it seems obvious - but I'm constantly impressed with her ability to be a fantastic actor. I spent almost every night cooking with her and her family in our apartments while filming.
Kellan: I asked myself what it would be like to have a dream role. It was quite fun for me, the idea of taking this on. When I read the script, it's so much more contemporary and
. It's a brilliant script, full of comedy, full of action.
Nikki: It's also about looking graceful, and elegant. It's like a dance and I sort of failed in that department. I get really sad when I think about all the commitment we put into these scenes. We overshoot for fights because it's like a puzzle
Elizabeth: I'm always resistant to action. It's really challenging to make that stuff believable. From that point of view I find it really hard. Even when someone pretends to hit me, I find that unpleasant. I think Nikki was more easily able to kick ass.
E: I really appreciate Esme's sweetness, generosity, spirit. Her ability to wear heels and dresses 24 hours a day. The real me would be wear sweat pants. Being Esme for so many years influenced by ability to throw on a pair of heels and a pencil skirt.
E: There were a lot of times they were unsure of what we'd be doing. In these films you become friends with who you're placed to. In one scene I was standing next to a couple actors for six weeks.. so we became close, and I got lucky.
Nikki: it was also intimidating at times because I think they thought we were being stand off ish.. but we were actually looking up to all these incredible actors stepping onto our set. We thought, are we doing this with them right now? It was so cool.
