Breaking Dawn - Part 1 Press Junket Live Blog
Welcome to our live coverage of the Breaking Dawn press junkets!
Comment From Lauren
Thanks so much for doing this Andrew! I know you saw the film last night, before you start can you give us your overall impression of it?
Sure thing! It was a great film, can't say anyting about it yet though!
Comment From Richard
While we wait, can you tell us what Twilight events are coming up in the next few days and are you covering them?
We'll be at the Twilight Fan Convention on Saturday covering the Rob, Kristen, Taylor, Bill Condon, and Melissa Rosenberg fan panels!
Comment From Katie
If we have already liked on Facebook and followed on Twitter, are we automatically entered for the giveaways??
Yes! Everyone following/liked will be entered. Those who didn't intentionally enter the contest don't have to accept their prize.
They said they wanted to begin at 10:55 (one minute ago), so it should be starting any minute now. Not sure which cast members are up first.
Here's a photo of the scene
BooBoo Stewart and Julia Jones are up first. Then Bill Condon, then the filmmakers, then Rob Kristen and Taylor.
Stephenie Meyer is at the handprint ceremony down the street, so we presume she will be here too.
"We're officially late," says Summit. Yes, yes.
Comment From Jack
Do you think the film will get more positive reviews than the previous three?
Beats me.. the films have always been about pleasing the fans!
Okay, beginning now!
Question: Who ever named you BooBoo? Julia, advantages of being a wolf?
BooBoo: Parents give me that nickname when I was a baby, so I guess I reminded her of what BooBoo would look like (laughs). My real name is Nils Alan Stewart Junior.
Cell phone interuption..
Julia: Advantage of being a wolf? For a female it's not the best situation. It's fun to be around guys all the time. It's a very familiar situation. It's wonderful to be in the woods, in the wilderness. Outside of that, there aren't many advantages. You don't know if you can have many children. It's hard to feel femine. The mind reading part is tricky too. I'd prefer to be a wolf, for a girl the cons outway the pros.
BooBoo: But you get a tattoo.
Julia: You know, that's my point (laughs)
Question: How'd you get the part BooBoo?
BooBoo: Asked my agent about it, I got a callback, I was literally the last to be seen in the callbacks. I read the lines.. we read the monologue twice. It was just really funny. The casting director and I had a really fun time in the room. People ask If I had to be a wolf.. nope!
Julia: I knew the casting director previously. I was first in Black Cloud, the day I moved out to LA. She called me, I auditioned for her and David Slade. A week later auditioned for a whole room of people. Didn't hear anything for a month, and then four days later heard I got it!
Question: Both of you hvae a lot of scenes with Taylor. What was it like working with him?
BooBoo: I had a great time working with him. I've known him since I was like 9. But this was our first time really working together. It was really cool and he's such a nice guy. It's been the same, just throwing footablls around. I couldn't throw footballs so I didn't join in.
Julia: I did
BooBoo: Taylor's always hanging out on set. I saw Abduction, as for his future, awesome movie. Thought it was really good. He's great at doing action stuff.
Julia: I loved working with Taylor. The combination of lightness and energy he brings to the set is so funny. He's always playing games, and it's just a really pleasant experience to be on a set with him. And once the cameras roll, he's very professional. He really wants to collaborate. Bill would just be like, okay you guys just play around and I'll be back. Bill would come back and say what do you have for me? We'd collaborate on ideas. I really felt like it maximized the experience working with both Taylor and Bill. As for his future, what can't he do? He's so professional and hard working.
Question: What have you learned personally from Lea and Seth?
BooBoo: i've definitely learned a lot about how easy going he is. He's such a calm guy (Seth), he just doesn't care if you're a vampire or shapeshifter in every day life.
Julia: I think I should've played Seth (laughter). I think playing Lea you learn the irresponsible for the course of your life. If you're not happy, it's up to you to decide what to do. Hopefully I can use some of that in my own life.
Question: Can you talk about your Native American heritage if you have any? And portraying them in a modern film?
Julia: I've been playing native roles for a very long time. It has been a really rewarding experience in a lot of ways. It's.. there's a lot to show in showing a big group of people, and not very accurately at all in the media. I cherish that. I think there should be more roles for native actors in contemporary pieces. I'm very proud to play a Quillete.
BooBoo: I'm a little bit of everything. I just try to be a little of everything. I think it's cool. I don't see it as playing a native character.. I see it as playing Seth in Twilight.
Julia: That's the beauty of these characters. These characters are so multilayed, it's about their essence.
Question: is it bitter sweet that Native Americans are only interested in them when they can change into wolves?
Julia: I don't think that's a fair example because they haven't had enough exposure. I think it's too bad. I think there are wonderful stories, and it's an incredibly part of art history as a country and it's just not told because there's so little presence in main stream American.
Question: How do you handle turning into a wolf?
BooBoo: I thought, wow, my wolf looks skinny. Looks like he hasn't eaten in 2 months. They've done such a great job portraying us.
Question: So you had ficitional body image concerns.
BooBoo: Yeah! I get asked if I had any say in the wolves. If I did, my wolf would be black.. this monster wolf.. with wings (laughs)
Question: Most memorable fan encounter?
BooBoo: Someone walked up to me and told me her son wanted to be an actor after watching me. And I thought, wow, we influence lives.
Don't forget that Bill Condon, Kristen, Taylor, Rob, and others will be speaking later!
Julia: The crux of her shift happens when she breaks off from the wolf pack. It felt like a big relief to be not have to be angry anymore (in the role). There's this one scene with Taylor, when he's let her stay with him, I just felt that tons had been lifted off of my shoulders. I was really fortunate that the arc of my character was in the script. It made finding a balance so much easier.
question: Playing the younger brother to Julia
BooBoo: It was great, and I don't say that just because she's sitting next to me. We could be real life brother and sister.
Question: On training..
Julia: I think a big part of acting is discipline, and half of the wolf back has had martial arts training. BooBoo's amazing. he'd fall asleep, and then wake up and be ready to go at 4 in the morning to do stunts. It was amazing.
BooBoo: If you get tired, you eat an apple. I don't drink coffee, energy drinks,a nything. That's what I started doing and it really helps.
Julia and BooBoo are finished, Bill Condon (director) should be up next! Starting very very soon.
Don't forget to enter our Breaking Dawn - Part 1 giveaway that we're hosting only during this live blog! By liking and/or following us (buttons above) you'll be entered to win awesome prizes (also above).
Bill Condon up now!
Q: What was it like entering this big franchise?
Bill: I wanted to put my take on the material, but still please the fans and still ahvea cinematic expereince. Making two films wasn't fun either. Kidding, it was fun. But it was hard. But people like Kristen had days where she'd be a vampire in the morning, pregnant in the afternoon, dead at night. It was difficult some days.
Question: Music has always been a huge part of the Twilight series. With Christina Perri's music video, what sort of decisions or influences went into the decision process?
Bill: it starts right from the beginning. Music is part of the way of telling the story. It's very up front in this movie. There's a moment when bella finds out she's pregnant. Bella leaves the room, but there's a moment where she falls in love with her baby. It was designed to be accompanied by a song.
We get a ton of material submitted to us. We're listening to all these incredibles songs. A combination of me and my assistance, we cull through all this stuff. Then there's a moment we hear a song and believe it's perfect. What I'm trying to say is I tried to make room for these songs where they play an up front role in the film.
Question: When did the cast give you enlightenment? And what about having Meyer there?
Bill: the first people who arrived were Rob, Kristen, and Taylor. We just sat in a room talking about every page through the script. They showed a tremendous amount - when an actor embodies a role you'll know it more than they ever will.
Bill: I met with Rob a couple months before we started. We were just having a general talk about Twilight. He mentioned something I ahdn't known before. He'd been a playing a men who was full of regret and who was self loathing. Because of an episode where he broke away from the Cullen family (the early 30s in Chicago) where he'd explore what it'd be like to kill human beings.
Rob thought it was a killed that played on Edward, but it was never played in the movies. There was Midnight Sun where it's really explored. SO we had a conversation about that, I worked with Melissa, and we put it into the beginning of the movie. We understood where Edward was coming from. So things like that, so much comes out of those types of meetings.
Working with Steph was incredible. Before we met her we'd be on Twilight LExicon because they had better timelines than we did. But having Steph was incredible, she was there to help us out.
Question: From philosopher (i think?) to filmmaker? How does that happen?
Bill: When I went to college I decided to expand outside of philosophy. I had the analytic skilsl to be a screenwriter. The things you learn in philosophy give you a certain kind of rigger. As soon as I graduated I started pursuing movies.
Question: Was the chemistry something you felt when you met them?
Bill: We started filming in Brazil. They were staying on the beach, annd then downstairs there people all the time and they couldn't leave their room. It amazed me how gracious they were all the time. I kind of understood it was part of the interest. Generally, one thing that's so exciting is.. you work on every decision and it's going to be studied and reacted to by a large group of people.
Bill: We haven't seen a screening with big crowds of people, except for last night. Rob and Kristen are so relaxed in the acting - it's something they don't even have to act.
Question: Filming in Vancouver, using it to stand in for Forks.
Bill: The exciting thing here is.. the Cullen house is where much of Part 1 takes place, and a lot of Part 2. Twilight it was on location, New Moon/Eclipse it was on a soundstage, in Breaking Dawn we made it in nature in Vancouver. We were able to build it with scope and beauty.
We spent 4 months in Baton Rogue. It was all green screen all the time there. I can't describe to you that day.. I knew the house so well. And then arriving there in Vancouver, and stepping on the exact same set, except it was in nature. It was so stunning and odd.
Bill: As for the story telling, I"ll give you an example. Arina shows up at the wedding which doesn't happen in the book and then storms off because she has a huge backstory with Laurent who had been killed by wolves trying to save Bella. That, she plays a big part in movie 2. But as opposed to "oh god why is she there" you want everything to happen in the present tense. And that was one of our principals when we adapted it. "Let's make sure we can just show things and not talk about them."
Question: The humorous elements.. there are so many serious topics but then there were many funny/light scenes. Talk about the decision to incorporate that.
Bill: The toast, early on it was something with the book. It was something that represented the wedding. I felt god that'd be such a great way to capture everything that's awkward and weird about weddings. And these characters, when you've got Billy Burke. Melissa went and wrote those and I thought they were great.
Bill: The scene with Bella - the shaving the leg and all that - you want to connect to always what Bella is feeling. And that incredible anxiety that anyone would feel, you can't help but make it funny.
Question Once of the big differences with the Twilight film vs your other films.. it embraces a lot of melodrama.
Bill: I enjoyed it. I'm a big fan of classic hollywood genres. It allows you to immerse yourself in immersion, and do it with camera, music, design, and color. I very much embraced it. It's a valuable genre. It often puts women and womens' concerns in the center, that's too bad. But I was excited by a melodrama.
Question: How did you keep the two films separate? A schedule?
Bill: We didn't. I put my script together, it was a 220 page script. Part 2 begins the *moment* when Part 1 begins. We found the right place to end the first one. There were days when, again, Kristen's a vampire in the morning and pregnant and dieing in the afternoon.
Poor Kristen had to make their shifts all the time.
Question: How'd she get so thin?
Kristen: She lost some weight, makeup, and a little bit of digital effects.
Question: Have you considered spinning off the Twilight franchise past Breaking Dawn?
Bill: I didn't, but people have always asked. I think as I understand it, the story as told from Bella's point of view is certainly completed. Whether Stephenie will show it from other points of view - I don't know.
Question: I think it's great how tune you are with all of the fans. This is for them. We heard it was originally rated R?
Bill: It wasn't really rated R. They didn't rate it. They told us we weren't hitting PG 13 yet. It's a very clinical thing. They have very specific guidelines for ratings. Because it's so subjective they have very specific guidelines. I had to be critical but.. thrusting, intercourse. There was never explicit. It's not very different from what you see. Any movement was what was considered not appropriate. Because of the popularity of Twilight it had a bigger focus.
Question: Rob jokingly blamed Kristen.
Bill: Well, Rob's right. (laughter)
Question: There's a huge number of new vampires. Talk about casting them?
Bill: We get a great preview of the new vampires in Part 1, the Denali clan. You wanted three actors who had a slightly other world quality, and I think they do. It was very fun casting them.
Question: Talk about shooting in Brazil.
Bill: We started on the honeymoon in Brazil. I found it great. The crew was great, we had some weather problems.. got rained in and had to sleep in bathtubs in the honeymoon house. But everythign about it was magical. We were five hours outside of Rio, and we had to write a boat into the set every day.
Question: What will the younger fans think about this film? It jumped straight into pretty adult stuff.
Bill: I think the younger readers have grown up too. These concerns are not the same concerns when she moved out of Arizona. We always talked about.. if we take vampires and werewolves out, what is this about? It's a true love story. Waking up every morning.. at least, one of them is waking up.
Question: Can you talk about cast management? How do you give all the characters a chance to shine?
Bill: It's interesting. I remember we'd have scenes with the Cullens, and I had 8 people and I thought "oh great this is an easy day." There were some days we had 27 people in the room and it was insane. It's important everyone have their moment to define who they are. We gather all these vampires from around the world and we need to show who each of them are and what their powers are. We had Stephenie there - she helped with details that weren't even in the book. But that was the challenge.
Question: Can you talk about the last day of shooting?
Bill: That was the almost last day. The last day was the middle of April and it snowed. It was hard to shoot in Vancouver. There were two big moments. One was the dance between Kristen and Taylor, and Rob stayed for the whole thing. It ended at dawn.
Bill: Everyone got emotional and Kristen cut it with a joke. Because the last take.. high shot.. I call cut.. she starts running in the wedding dress and starts yelling "Jacob come back come back I've made a mistake!" (laughter) it was great.
And then that whole moment when Alice and Jasper were dancing. But EVERYONE was there. We called cut and everyone hugged each other. It was great.
Bill Condon is finished! In two minutes more big Breaking Dawn crew members, and THEN Rob Kristen and Taylor!
Don't forget we're running a contest only during these press conferences! Details are available above this window! Good luck to everyone who participates. We hope you're enjoying our coverage!

In addition to the rest of the press conferences over the next hour or two, we'll be at the Twilight fan convention on Saturday covering Rob, Kristen, Taylor, Bill Condon, and Melissa Rosenberg's fan panels! They should be a blast (just like today's are)
Producer Wyck Godfrey, Stephenie Meyer, Melissa Rosenberg on now!
While following our live blog, see high-res photos of Rob Kristen and Taylor doing their handprints at Grauman's! http://www.hypable.com/twilight/2011/11/03/photos-rob-pattinson-kristen-stewart-taylor-lautner-put-handprints-at-graumans/
Question: Welcome back to the press circuit. What's your reaction to the whole experience?
Stephenie: That's a big question. I've been hiding for a few years, it's just fun. It's interesting to be done and not done. We had the final night of shooting and that moment of closure. With the first part coming out, it doesn't feel like the end. I'm not sure how it will be to get to the END the END. I know I'll miss the kids. I'm going to miss a lot of the people.
Question: How did it feel to see your characters come to life and finally get married? And you got to be there for it?
Stephenie: The wedding was really emotional. I was somewhat prepared because I had been there for Kristin's dress fitting. I wasn't expecting ot be emotional, but it was something. It was a really cold, awful thing. I didn't want to be on camera. Bill talked to me into it. I got to hang out with Wyck and Melissa. When she came down the isle, she looked at me for a minute. It felt like a real wedding.
Question: Bill had mentioned Midnight Sun and vampires asking you to continue. Have you thought about continuing it?
Stephenie: I've thought about it. People ask all the time. There are pieces in my computer - who knows, sometimes you want to get into a new world. The characters are always going to be alive for me.
Wyck: Where's you computer right now? (laughter)
Question for Wyck: I live in South Louisiana.. what was the decision to film there?
Wyck: The decision was the fundamentals to efficient production. We broke down the movies. We knew we had to go to Brazil for the honeymoon. But in terms of where we built our stages, you could go anywhere. So Louisiana had a great deal, and it just worked out to film all of our stage work there. And then film our exteriors in Vancouver.
Question: stephenie have you wanted to do a direct to screen project?
Stephenie: It's something I've talked about for another project. I like to be alone with the story for a while. Once you put into a screen format there's a lot of people involved. I prefer to be alone with it.
Question: Was there a time when Melissa would write the script and you thought "I wish I thought of that?"
Stephenie: Oh yeah. There' sa moment where Bella flicks the light on and Edward's gone in Twilight, I loved that. There's always been things I wish I could have snagged.
Melissa: My objective is.. if Stephenie likes and it and approves, that's my job. We're all visitors in her universe. The other thing that was really fantastic was to discover that Stephenie is really a great collaborator. I would be outlining something and I'd call or e-mail her and we'd bounce around ideas that weren't in the book.
Question: What songs Stephenie do you have in your head with these stories?
Stephenie: I put all the music I listened to while writing on my website. Music is a lot of fun for me. When we work on the movie I can't help listening to those. But there are some great musical moments in the films. Between what you see and hear, when it becomes one feeling, it's great.
Question: Have you ever offered any guidance as a mother to Kristin, Stephenie?
Stephenie: She didn't need much guidance. Her transformation was cool. One day she'd be a vampire, the next pregnant, she did it so beautifully. She would come up to Bill and say "I need to look at my daught here," etc. We all became Mackenzie's (Renesmee's) mom. Kristin got that instinct.
Question: The sexual and gender politics are at best retrograde, some critics say. What do you say about that?
Stephenie: I never think about the politics. It's what's interesting to me. I'm not going to say BD doesn't get weird, because it does, but I wanted to explore what it meant to be a woman. It was something that happened to Bella when she was very young. I was always fascinated that 100 yaers ago, if you were to have a baby, you would say to yourself "I could die".. it's a courage we don't have to develop anymore. So I was fascinated by that, and I wanted to explore things I never got to do. It's about how as a person you would deal with these different things.
Question: What was your favorite moment of being able to create a moment beyond the book point of view?
Melissa: For me, it was going to the Volturi. In the movie we were actually able to go there in each movie. Again, with the Volturi at the very end of this film. And with Jacob. It's liberating to be able to do that. And you experience Bella's change - dramatic change - from Jacob's point of view.
Stephenie: It's a question.. I was trying to think about that. Any time we get to spend with other characters is great. The newbies were so much fun. The one moment with Lee Pace, one moment with the Romanians. And certainly Michael Sheen, always Sheen.
Question: What did you think of the birth scene, Stephenie?
Stephenie: I really liked it. It was something.. in the beginning when we developed the story, we weren't sure if it'd be enough. The birth scene, we thought it would be a lot.. some people werent sure if it'd be climatic enough. With the birth scene you could tell it was so emotional. It was.. Edward is losing Bella, and Rob's performance was so heartbreaking that I'm going to admit I teared up. Yes, there were tears because you looked at the idea of losing the thing most important to you.
Bill has such a gift for that
Question: has working in film changed your storytelling?
Stephenie: It hasn't changed me, I've grown a lot. It's hard to sum up something that hasn't been finished yet. It wasn't always a comfortable experience. It was good for me in a lot of ways.
Question: When did you decide to do 2 parts? And who chose Bride of Frankenstein to have Edward watching?
Melissa: My experience was, it came down whether to breaking the stories and seeing if there were two movies in there. Or if we could fit it into one. And we thought about it, and fairly early on - I intiially thought it was one - then I realized we'd be leaving so much out. It was better to let two movies breath a little bit then cram into one.
Wyck: The truest answer is that it felt very organic. I was initially very resistant. But then we challenged ourselves to come up with very good narrative reasons why it would work. Would the death and rebirth be climatic enough to stand on its own for one movie? I think collectively we came to the conclusion that yeah, it could work.
Bride of Frankenstein.. that was Bil's choice.
Question: After having so much anticipation, fans get excited even to watch the trailer. How was it to see it in its entirety?
Stephenie: For me it was emotional the first time I saw it. You've seen good films but you never know. When a movie makes you forget that, and by halfway through you're just enjoying it, then you know it's been successful.
Melissa: When you're writing something, when I write it I've seen it. So Stephenie had to see MY screenplay, of the book she already wrote. And I had to go with seeing the film version of it. My version costs $3 trillion to make, so I'm always nervous when I see my work on screen. And Bill absolutely nailed it. He filmed what I had envisioned.
Question: In the production notes it said you were a little tired coming into the last two. How did you get your mojo back? (For Melissa). And what do both you writers do when facing writer's block?
Melissa: having a deadline helps. I was tired. After the third I was thinking wow I need new energy to bring to this. The addition of Bill into the mix - being an Academy Award winning screenwriter himself - it was great. I admit, I thought he may want to take it. But right from the start he said "no i want you to write this." and i was like "god, the one time.." (Laughter). But working with him.. he was the boost for me going into this.
Wyck: You were so exhausted after one session with Bill, you left your script in a bathroom!
Melissa puts her head down on the table.
Melissa: The whole production team descended on Baton Rogue to find it. Some hotel worker found it.
Melissa: That was horrible.
Stephenie: To motivate me, jumping projects helps. If vampires are getting old, write about aliens, have som efun.
Melissa: i've been a TV writer for most of my career. You're in a room all the time working with writers, they're my favorite people to hang around with. What I found working on this was that it's an extension of TV. It's collaborating with a writer, even though we didn't talk every day, I'm collaborating on what she wrote on the page. I love working with other writers.
Melissa, Stephenie, Wyck are finished! Rob, Kristen, and Taylor should be up next!
Or Cullens may be up next. Not sure at th emoment.
While we're waiting, check out high-res photos of Rob, Kristen, and Taylor getting their handprints at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood! http://www.hypable.com/twilight/2011/11/03/photos-rob-pattinson-kristen-stewart-taylor-lautner-put-handprints-at-graumans/
We're also running a contest for the duration of this live blog as well as our one on Saturday. By following us on Twitter or liking us on Facebook, you'll be entered to win great prizes listed above!
Next: Elizabeth Reaser, Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, and Nikki Reed
Taking their seats now.
Question: What have you learned about your characters?
Jackson: I've preferred not to be a blonde.
Elizabeth: I've learned patience. (laughs) No, I've learned a lot from Esme. She's always looking for a way to love someone, a way to be kind. That doesn't come naturally to me all the time. It was good practice.
Nikki: Sometimes playing the not most likable character is challenging because people think it's a reflection of me. I've found a healthy balance of defending our differences, I think
Question: Was there a collective sigh of relief on the last day on set? No longer having to keep up the immortal appearance?
Peter: For me I spent so much time trying to stay out of the sun because the more color you had the more makeup you had to have. When I went to my daught'ers soccer game I looked like the uni bomber.
Question: How do you feel about saying goodbye to these characters? You've basically finished it.
Jackson: It's nice to hang up the contacts. But we have the premiere coming up in a couple days, and then next year, it doesn't feel like it's over.
Peter: It feels like a part of it is over. Next year it will feel more complete.
Peter: Because we'll see each other during press now, press next year. We still have another year together. It doesn't feel completely over.
Nikki: We're both used to revisiting these projects. Everyone asks about the last day of filming. I wish I was creative enough to make up a dramatic tale. It was freezing and we just wanted to get inside. There wasn't a river of tears. Maybe in 3 or 4 years, if I don't have a job, I'll be sad.
Elizabeth: Next year we'll be sad.
Peter: The end of filming was strange. 1st unit wrapped, then there was a separate film wrap mark. I do remember on last day with Elizabeth hugging which felt like forever.
Question: Jackson, during the wedding you really dance up quite a bit. Was that 40s or 50s rock and roll dancing?
Jackson: A little jitterbug, a little old school dancing. I was really into that genre. We did some choreography and I wanted to do an old school flip, which we were nervous about cause Ashley was in heels. I didn't want to throw her and... last day of filming I kill her. Might not be the worst press, but (laugh), no it'd be terrible. It was fun to break out the old dance moves.
Question: You related to Jacob more, Elizabeth. At least he took the sandwich (in a scene).
Elizabeth: There's a scene with Peter and I were Jacob says "I think I get it now, i see you're a family" I think Jacob realizes he sees he's a part of the family now. Esme is hard to resist. She's so good and loving.
Question: Considering how hardcore the fans are, what's your most memorable fan encounter?
Elizabeth: I had one recently when a fan yelled at me.
Peter: Like angry?
Elizabeth: (laughs) yeah. That was most memorable. Did you say a good one? (Laughter)
Peter: i've had a few fans. Two or three ask me to sign their arm or leg and then get it tattoo'd. Which puts pressure of me if I stop acting.
Jackson: You can't change your name anymore can you. "the artist formally known as peter facinelli"
Jackson: the fans over the yaers have been so supportive and understanding. We wouldn't be here with you all in this room if it weren't for their devotion. You need fan to spell fanatic. Some are so sweet, so adoring. It's one thing when they scream at you. Your first instinct is to run the option direction.
Peter: I run towards them.
JacksoN: That's a note for fans. If you want to see Peter, he'll run towards you.
Question: What can you say about working on this franchise, what has it done for you.. what has the transition been like since the very beginning?
Nikki: I've learned one very important thing while observing the situation. Fame does not mean success. It's great being a part of something that's so well known, but we all have to do good work after this. That's what I've taken away. Now it's about what choices we make and what we're going to do with our lives. I've always done this thing where I put my life before my work. It's not a lack of ambition, I just know I'm only going to be 19, 20, 21 once. I moved to Greece, and I moved to Russia. I wanted to do what my brother did, he was just a normal kid. I've learned to have faith in the work.
Jackson: It's been an incredible learning experience. One of the most fascinating things is working with some great directors. I formed my own production company a year and a half ago. Learning from the producers and Summit, working with different minds, it's so exciting to work with the best in the business. Bill Condon.. the nightmare wedding sequence just blew me away. It was so well done. When you read the book you visualize things differently. But the way he brought it to life was phenomenal.
Question: Working with fellow cast..
Nikki: I just saw the movie last night, but my favorite scene wasn't in the movie. I bend a bowl into a dog bowl, I write Fido on it, and I throw it at Jacob. It was cut, but working with Jacob was a joy. He's very honest, his eyes are very honest.
Nikki: He's very good committing 100% to the decisions he makes. I got to interact with the actors for once.. back and forth, it was cool (laughter). He's great with his shirt on too.
Question: What was like working with the baby on set?
Nikki: I loved showing that Rosalie could love someone. It was a rubber baby on set a lot of the time. Really well made, but rubber. We also worked with a mechanical baby at different points in time. There'd be a man sitting at my feet controlling it. He'd press a button and the baby would grab my eye (laughter), it was great. The real babies didn't cry as much as they could've.
Question: Memorable fan encounter question for Nikki?
Nikki: One time I had a girl ask me to marry her. But she wasn't 18 yet and that was my first question. I said "are you 18?" and she said "No but my mom said it was okay when I am."
Jackson: 100 Monkeys.. were going on tour in Europe November 27th - December 17th. It's really exciting. It's the first time we're international.
Jackson: We're working on a couple new media projects. it's a really interesting time for music and video. I just did a mini series. I'm excited about the new possibilities with new media.
Question: How do you feel that Kristin and Rob deal with the media scrutiny? How do you think they deal with it? Do you admire it?
Peter: I've been impressed. People ask if I give them advice, and I don't because you have to go through it your own way. I don't think they've changed who they are, they just have more people surrounding them. They haven't changed and that's nice to see.
Elizabeth: I agree. They had unusual challenges and I don't think I could offer any advice.
It's really exciting that they've ogtten to play these roles, and carried us along with them.
Question: What was it like going to vamp camp.
Jackson: Vamp camp?
Question: Isn't that what you call it?
Jackson: No, but I like it. Where do I sign up? I could've used this 4 years ago when I started playing Jasper.
Peter: Change your band name to Vamp Camp.
Jackson: Our first song will be "you suck" (laughter)
Elizabeth: With kristin on set she'd complain as a vampire about the contacts. "ow man my eyes really hurt!"
Question: Working with different directors? how's that?
Jackson: Each one is really different. With Bill he had a calm demeanor. We had questions, he always had an answer. He was always open to other ideas. I always say Bill put the gentle in gentlemen. He's always very classy, caring, and cared what you were going through as an actor.
Question: What props did you take or borrow from set?
Peter: I tried to take Carlisle's ring. I said it wouldn't come off my finger. And they tracked me down. They wanted to take a mold of it and sell it to the fans, I think. On the fourth one I asked to have one and I think i have one of the originals.
Jackson: I bought one of the Carlisle rings as soon as they came out (laughter)
Nikki: I'm a huge rule follower. So i was afraid of taking something and getting in trouble. They always find out. Kristin stole my sneakers in the baseball scene in the first movie. She came over to my house and said "hey they have two o fthese, you can have one." They have all the mud on them so I never used 'em.
Question: Do you take any notice to the critics reviews of the films?
Elizabeth: I notice. I'm curious to see how the films are received. But the fan response with this type of movie is the overwhelming priority. I hope that we've given them the story.
Peter: The harshest critics are the fans. Becuase they've lived with these books and have the visions in their heads. If most of the fans like them, we've done our job. Hopefully the critics like them too. When you have a book that hits such a big mass market, you tap into that and most of those people like it.
Okay, Elizabeth, Peter, Jackson, and Nikki are finished!

Comment From Layla
Are Robert, Kristen and Taylor doing the press conference together??
Yes, they will be I think.
Be sure to let your fellow Twilight friends know about our live blog! As you're aware, it's fun to follow :)
Update! Rob first, then Taylor, then Kristen. Rob's coming up now!
Question: You've been playing Edward for 4 years, talk about the journey he's taken through the series. And for yourself personally.
Rob: I think in the broadest terms, Edward's journey.. I ignored the fact that he's a vampire and that he's 108, except for metaphorical purposes. You're left with a troubled teenager. It's a really simple story of him content with himself. He gets content by finding a woman and having a child. That's how a lot of troubled guys balance themselves out? At least that's the hope anyway.
Question: Bill mentioned that you said Edward was self loathing and it was never presented in the plot of the first three films.
Edward: I always thought that was the key ingredient. He's been stuck in adolescence. You think everything's unfair, he's been living with it for 100 years. You eventually get to the point of desperation. it was difficult to portray that and a love story at the same time. It's funny but Bill was the first person to say "I want to put this at the forefront" because Edward's the happiest he's been in the series. We did flashbacks that kind of reflect his anger.
Question: And your own personal journey?
*ROB not Edward: lol
Rob: It's presented a whole variety of obstacles. Growing into who I want to be. It's a very complicated maze. Also being propelled by some kind of jet, and going through the maze at the same time. It hasn't slowed down and I'm still trying to figure out where I'm at. But it's been fun. I didn't even know if I was going to continue acting before this happened, and now I have more of a drive than ever before.
Question: What's on your iPod right now?
Rob: I always sound so pretentious when I answer this. There's this band called Pato (sp?). I Pianist called Arnold Dramale (sp?) I can't remember anyone else, sorry.
.. and Katy Perry!
Question: Can you talk about your last moments of ever playing Edward?
Rob: She made a joke in the woods? Oh yeah, about running after Jake and saying she made a mistake. Yeah she's done that throughout the series.
Rob: The birth scene (talking about that now), I read that scene and was kind of astonished. I knew it was crazy but I couldn't believe it was actually written down and we were going to do it. It was terrifying going into it. It ended up being this kind of - it was one of the most incredible scenes to do in this movie. THere's this R Rated - or NC 17 rated version of a few scenes in this movie. (laugh) Because of the violence, it gave you a lot of freedom in the scene. The characters were so desperate, it became something very very different.
Rob: To do this thing where he's suddenly playing Edward who's stuck between an emaciated dummy's legs, getting cream cheese all over your face, and then pulling out a three-week-old baby, it was overwhelming (laughin lots)
Question: last moments playing Edward?
Rob: The very last moments I was in the Caribbean, on the beach. It was incredible. It was the only time I did anything like that in the Twilight movie. The last scene with everyone.. it was 2 weeks of cold, end of night shoots. It was freezing cold, pouring rain. It was symbolic kind of how all the movies were shot (laughs). it doesn't feel like the end of it yet. Also because the press tours have become so huge. This feels like part of the process. Until the last one's released, I don't feel like I've finalized anything.
Question: Have you ever had a super nervous/super happy moment in real life like Rob did in the wedding?
Rob: I can't even think of one.. I was walking around in Paris the other day. Actually no, that's a bad example. I can't remember a specific example, sorry!
Question: You've done all these huge franchise films. What do you like doing really? The independent film? The big film? Gunning for Harrison Fords record of doing every franchise out there? What's next for you?
Rob: I don't know. I approach these moments the exact same way. Smaller movies are great because you don't have to argue with so many people all the time. But really I like arguing so there's a balance either way. With independent movies it's nice to see - sorry, I just noticed your dog down there, I'm boring him to sleep (someone's dog is here). Yeah, it's nice to see someone directing who's so pleased with it. He's proved himself time and time again. I've never worked with someone who'sf elt absolutely no pressure. It's nice that the pressure isn't caused by compromises.
Question: You've talked about wanting to get back into music. Is that still a priority?
Rob: Yeah. I record stuff a lot but - there's something about handling the criticism with movies, you can always blame it on someone else. But with music, you're basically putting an album out for people to judge it. I don't care what they say but the day it comes out I know I'll look online to read reviews.
Question: You guys were immortalized earlier today (Graumann's: see photos! http://www.hypable.com/twilight/2011/11/03/photos-rob-pattinson-kristen-stewart-taylor-lautner-put-handprints-at-graumans/). How do you feel about that?
Rob: I stayed at the Magic Castle the first few times I came to LA when I was like 17. I used to walk down to Hollywood blvd all the time and never knew it looked the way that it does. Honestly I don't feel like I've even done it. It's like this wave has happened and I'm just on it. I've never really had any kind of - I feel like now is all part of the same thing. I was kind of embarrassed because I stood up and messed up my own handprint!
Rob: It's incredible. It represents something amazing. It's mind blowing.
Question: You guys experienced an extravagant wedding. Would you want one of those in your own life?
Rob: It does seem like a bit of a hassle. I was just doing an interview with Kristen. She got annoyed with me for saying the groom's role in a wedding is just as a prop (laughter). Playing the part, you kind of realize it's a clear indication when you're staring at one end of the aisle and EVERYONE is looking at the girl coming down in a princess dress (laughs)
Rob: it's really just.. any guy who tries to get involved in a wedding, or has an opinion, ... it's whatever your wife decides a do.
Questoin: So that's a no?
Rob: What doing a fancy one? No.
That's it for Rob, up next are Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner (separately)!
Don't forget that we'll be live blogging Rob, Kristen, and Taylor's press conference at the Breaking Dawn fan conference on Saturday!
They'll probably be all speaking at once on that panel.
Taylor is next, then Kristen is last!
Taylor should be starting in just a few minutes.
Saw a couple comments on Twitter that people wish Rob had more time. Us too - they rushed him out! Busy busy with press stuff today.
Okay, Taylor is up!
Question: Any favorite music you're listening to right now?
This one stresses me out because I'm so all over the place with my music tastes. I'll listen to hardcore music, then main stream hip hop. I'm so crazy with my music tastes. I'll listen to a song, become obsessed, and then I'm on to the next one. I love your dog by the way (dog in the audience)
Question: I'm not going to ask you about the lack of shirtless scenes. You seem to have a lot more emotional weight. What was your approach?
Taylor: i was really excited about this one because Jacob becomes a man in this one. He's being torn between his two families. It was really tough. It was the most challenging one for me. I didn't know, going into it. We sat down with Bill, dove right into it. We talked about the characters. I couldn't have done it without Bill's help. I trusted him completely.
Question: What about the Imprint scene?
Taylor: You had to go there. That was tough. What is imprinting? What do oyu look like when you Imprint? Luckily we had Stephenie on set the entire times, and trust me I asked her a million times. "Okay, explain to me what imprinting is. What is Jacob doing when he's imprinting?" So there was a lot of conversation about that. And then when we filmed it, they put a X on the wall. You're going to look at the X, and you're going to imprint. I was like "are you kidding me?!"
Taylor: But now after seeing the final version, it's emotional. They did a great job tying in flashback
Question: Was it upsetting that Edward gets the hot vampire bride and you get a baby? (Laughter)
Taylor: I know! When I was reading the books I was worried. I was like "wait, he's trying to get Bella the whole time and he strikes out so he goes with her child?!" You have to tread lightly. It's not romantic at all. Bill did an incredible job filming it carefully.
Question: What's the kind of thing you are ready to put behind you?
Taylor: Not wearing clothes. Maybe the climate of where we film - those two together don't go well together.
Taylor: I can't complain at all. I am crazy thankful for what this has given all of us as actors.
Question: you guys have become a family at this point. Who's the most - who was unlikely - you became close with?
Taylor: that's a good question. I can definitely say we are all very very close. One person that I'm very close with is Edi Gathegi. He's an incredible guy. Maybe that's unexpected because we haven't worked together in a few years. And I killed him.
Taylor: We have all grown so close. It's really unbelievable.
Question: What's been your craziest fan encounter? And what's happening next?
Taylor: That's so tough to choose one. I don't like using the word crazy. I like the word passionate. Kristen and I had a very interesting Brazil experience. It was out of control but amazing and there was a lot of passion. I've had a few girls - a tattoo, a picture of you, or a signature on their arm. That blows my mind. Something new happens every single day. You'd think we'd all get used to it and expect it but every time something happens we're like "are you kidding me?" We wouldn't be here promoting a movie if it weren't for the passion.
Taylor: As for what's next, I don't know to be honest. I've been promoting two movies back to back. I'll have a little break which I'm excited for. I can catch up on sleep.
Question: What about Gus Van Sant?
Taylor: What about him? He's a very talented director who I've looked up to. It's very premature, I would love the opportunity to work with him.
Question: Is it true it's based on a New York article?
Taylor: There is something like that floating around, yeah.
Question: Will parts of Jacob stick around with you?
Taylor: Absolutely. I love Jacob. There's many things that I look up to Jacob for. He's one of the most loyal, persistent people. He has amazing qualities.
Question: Concerning your future, how important is it to you now being so identified - not that there's anything wrong with a hugely successful franchise - how important is to find something different to break free of Jacob?
Taylor: I want everything to feel special to me. I'm very specific about that. In a way it would almost be a compliment to be typecast. Because our job is to believe we are these characters. So in one sense we're trying to do that because that's the goal.
Taylor: It's very exciting that it's coming to an end and continue to challenge ourselves. But at the same time it's a bummer because it's been such a huge part of our lives.
Question: Voice over with the wolves (missed the main part)
Taylor: The wolves got a very cool scene that we (the actors) didn't. In a sense we were able to do a scene (because of the voiceovers) and implement them into a wolf.
Question: Are you comfortable enough this late in the franchise to say to Bill or to whoever "no, Jacob would do this this way." Ever get into an argument situation defending your thoughts?
Taylor: Thankfully I haven't been in that position. Bill made us feel so comfortable. It could've been a challenge. When a new director comes on board it can take some time to adjust. But Bill was so amazing. He made us feel comfortable, open. Yeah, occasional discussions occurred when I said Jacob would do or say something differently. Bill was very open and say the same stuff about us. I've respected Bill for a very long time, long before I had the chance to work with him.
Question: Can you understand why Jacob just won't let Bella go? And talk about the last scene you've filmed.
Taylor: I go back and forth with Jacob's persistence. Most of the time, yeah I can understand it. Because sometimes you're told no in life - you can't just say "oh, okay." You have to be persistent. It requires a lot of hard work. If you believe in something you gotta go for it. Most of the time I could relate. But then there's moments where I was like "dude, you gotta get over it. it's time to move on."
Taylor: our last scene was tough because I knew filming the last scene was going to be tough. But it was more emotional for all of us. It didn't help that my very last scene was with Kristen. Rob comes in and well and breaks it up. It's Jacob and Bella's last dance after the wedding. Bella's off to the honeymoon and he realizes everything he's been working for is over. It's an emotional scene and we're saying goodbye to each other, and that was the very last scene we filmed. And it didn't help the situation. When we finished Kristen and I looked at each other and didn't have anything to say. Because the emotion of the scene, and the emotion of the situation - it's a very special situation. When I watch the scene I have a lot of great memories.
That's it for Taylor! Kristen Stewart is up next! We'll be live blogging the Rob, Kristen, and Taylor fan panel at the Twilight convention on Saturday too!
Kristen is coming up now!
Question: You look sane and normal today. What we had from Bill Condon you had a crazy life playing a virgin in the morning, delivering a baby in the afternoon, talk about the trials and tribulations? Also, Bella's become a huge pop culture character. How does it compare to playing Snow White?
Kristen: Shooting two movies at the same time, with no regard to - it wasn't something we were initially concerned about. Scheduling wise, it really was - EVERYWHERE in each day like Bill said. I think what that gave me was that - she's thinking, she's always looking into the future and what she's going to achieve. Or she's feeling bad about what she wants. She's very much in her own head. Being able to play a vampire, a human, a pregnant woman - literally sometimes in the day.. it helped remind me that it all was equally important. Everything felt very close. If we did it more systematically, it wouldn't have been the same. It was so overwhelming that it was a good thing.
Kristen: As for the iconic role, I guess the only actual comparison is that they really both are matriarchs. Very strong that need to find their position. But it's so different (Snow White VS Bella). Snow White was really never.. I didn't grow up on fairy tales. I didn't grow up with Twilight.
Question: You've had success away from Twilight. How have you avoided being typecast?
Kristen: I've done pretty - the movies I've done in between, I"m really lucky they've been very different. Not just because I meant them to be. They just happened to be very attractive to me. Right now is the first time I haven't worked and not known what I was going to be doing. I want to have time off to figure out what my interests are. I want to really figure out what I REALLY want to do.
Question: Drawn to low profile projects to avoid that kind of Twilight buzz?
Kristen: No, it has nothing to do with the profile.
Question: It looked like you lost a lot of weight when you were pregnant --
Kristen: Digital. We didn't have time for me to do that for the role. That's so cool that you believe it looks so genuine. I feared people wouldn't like it.
Kristen: It did make me feel like, "UH i hope you guys do a good job making me look that thin!"
Question: What was going through your mind in the wedding scene?
Kristen: I had a million different things going through my head. I kept telling myself "stop stop stop" I can't ruin it. I was so in the right place to do that I just needed to do it, stand there, walk, see everyone. I know the story so well. Remembering my lines is the last thing I think about. If you know a story so well, the lines just come out if someone asks you/provokes you in the right way. I kept telling myself to find myself in this moment.
Question: You Taylor and Rob have been this since the beginning. What do the guys bring to the experience?
Kristen: I couldn't have done - I guess if you put different numbers in the equation you'll get a different answer, but I can't imagine doing this without Rob and Taylor. When I don't see Taylor for a while, I go *gasp* and take your phone out. When you work with great people like him, you just love it. We got along and it shows.
Question: Fans tell me you inspire them to be theirselves. What do oyu think about that?
Kristen: I love that. I hate when people say "what advice do you want to give your fans?" oh god, I don't even know how to explain this. People that I look up to.. you find people in life who have common interests.
Kristen: It's hot in here.
Question: Rob made comments saying the wedding was practically real because you said real vows and you were pretty much married.
Kristen: (laughs) the priest couldn't even remember the lines! He'd say our real names. Was he a real minister? I'd like to find out (laughs)
Kristen: This movie does have every mile stone. It crams a lot of milestones into one movie. It was a unique situation. All of the imposing elements. Every single time I think about this film, I think about a cat. In the corner. Claws out. Belly swollen. "Stay the F--- away from me!" That's how I relate to the scene.
Kristen: yeah, lots of milestones. Heavy heavy.
Question: What's on your iPod right now?
Kristen: This is really hilarious. I'm doing Snow White right now. It's really weird being here right now to be hoenst because I'm so involved in Snow White. Adele's new album is honestly... I've choreographed whole marches with my army behind me. It's really good for the Snow white story, almost too good for it. She's incredible.
My regulars.. everyone knows what I listen to already, it's very boring.
Question: What part of Bella sticks with you?
Kristen: I don't really.. I'm pretty wrapped up in her and vise versa. I've always felt you really project yourself onto that character. If you're the type of girl to identify with Bella, you just are her. I'm asked "so how do you make her different?" i'm like "yeah but, I do feel like i am her. For her.. somehow i could not disagree with her ever, and I didn't."
Kristen: We're pretty similar at times, but at times not. Hard to say.
