Kristen Stewart opens up about playing Bella in ‘Twilight’ and how much she’s going to miss the vampire character. â€œPeople keep asking me, â€˜What does it feel like to walk away from â€˜Twilight?â€™ â€ she says. â€œI donâ€™t feel like I have to walk anywhere. You hold onto the things that are dear to you. I will always carry Bella Swan with me. I feel the same way about Bella as the fans do.â€
Stewart, 22, says she took a few lessons from the character.
â€œI love how Bella was always questioning herself. She was constantly thinking, â€˜Wait, do I go with this … or is this crazy?â€™ â€ she says. I think you should question yourself along the way. You should never stop doing that. You should constantly question everything and push harder.â€
On Friday, she will play Bella for the last time in â€œThe Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn â€” Part 2,â€ the film where we finally see a red-eyed, butt kicking Bella in full vampire mode.
She also must protect her young daughter Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy) from the Volturi, the governing vampires who donâ€™t approve of a child conceived between a mortal mother and vampire father.
Is she glad itâ€™s over?
â€œIâ€™m so happy the story is told,â€ she says. â€œWe had five years to tell this story. Itâ€™s out. Itâ€™s not weighing on us anymore.â€
â€œTwilightâ€ author Stephenie Meyer says the Bella as a full-fledged vampire on screen matched what was in her head when she was writing the books.
â€œThe performance was remarkable from the first moment she put in the contacts,â€ Meyer says.
â€œI was nervous wondering if Bella would be different as a vampire. The point is it has to feel like something new. I was so impressed with Kristen. I stood by the monitor doing a little happy dance.â€
Adds director Bill Condon, â€œShe becomes a badass warrior. We made the last two movies at the same time. In the morning, she would be emaciated or giving birth and in the afternoon she was a vampire.â€
The key to finding Bellaâ€™s inner vampire was all of Stewartâ€™s years as Bella the human.
â€œThe best aspect of every vampire is always creating an enhanced version of what they were as human beings,â€ Stewart says. â€œI really did get to play a very well-rounded vampire because I got to make those baby steps along the way. If you were to take the fact that she becomes a vampire completely away, this new movie shows a more realized version of who Bella has been the entire time.â€
Kristen has been playing Bella since she was 18-years-old. She admits she wasn’t sure if it would be a hit when the first movie came out. â€œI guess the day my life changed was at Comic Con, when I met the fans for the first time,â€ she says. â€œI was hit by this wave of human energy. It made me think, â€˜This is not a normal movie.â€™ â€
