Interview: Nikki Reed and Kellan Lutz talk Twilight Emily Stockham November 1, 2012 Features, Interviews 1985 Ahead of the release of the final instalment to the epic Twilight saga, Breaking Dawn Part 2, I went along to a Q&A that would have made Twihards green with envy. Hosted by the lovely Radio 1 presenter Edith Bowman we were treated to a chat with Nikki Reed aka Rosalie- the moody faced vampire from the Cullen family, and Kellan Lutz aka Emmett- the brawn but lacking in brains vampire. The pair seemed genuinely happy to be meeting fans of the film and touched upon it truly feeling like the “end of an era”. They talked about transferring their feelings from bittersweet to just sweet as they feel that the final instalment as really tied all of the films together and they accredited this to director Bill Condon’s input. Nikki Reed claimed her favourite film from the saga was the first: “There was no pressure, no expectation. We were a bunch of 17 to 22 year olds hanging out in a beautiful city with no paparazzi following us. We didn’t know what it going to become- it was just another movie. That’s really special to me”. Kellan Lutz said the end of it all hit him at this years Comic Con- “That was like the actual end for me. I’ve just enjoyed meeting the fans, the people who appreciate what we do- that’s what I’ll take from Twilight, its rare to get that kind of support.” Both stars were almost unrecognisable without their dark wigs, contacts and practically translucent pasty complexions. The pair spoke about their future career prospect and I’m sure after five years it’s difficult to think of life after Twilight. While both have played other roles during those years, Nikki, as well as professing her love for talented and classic actors such as Edward Norton and Gary Oldman, added that she would love to play Patti Smith in an adaption. Kellan jested that he feels he would be perfect for the adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey before saying he’ll be sad to leave his Twilight co-stars behind.
