Kristen Stewart opens up about playing Bella in ‘Twilight’ and how much she’s going to miss the vampire character. Ã¢â¬ÅPeople keep asking me, Ã¢â¬ËWhat does it feel like to walk away from Ã¢â¬ËTwilight?Ã¢â¬â¢ Ã¢â¬Â she says. Ã¢â¬ÅI donÃ¢â¬â¢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.Ã¢â¬Â
Stewart, 22, says she took a few lessons from the character.
Ã¢â¬ÅI love how Bella was always questioning herself. She was constantly thinking, Ã¢â¬ËWait, do I go with this … or is this crazy?Ã¢â¬â¢ Ã¢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.Ã¢â¬Â
On Friday, she will play Bella for the last time in Ã¢â¬ÅThe Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Ã¢â¬â Part 2,Ã¢â¬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 donÃ¢â¬â¢t approve of a child conceived between a mortal mother and vampire father.
Is she glad itÃ¢â¬â¢s over?
Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢m so happy the story is told,Ã¢â¬Â she says. Ã¢â¬ÅWe had five years to tell this story. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s out. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s not weighing on us anymore.Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅTwilightÃ¢â¬Â 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.
Ã¢â¬ÅThe performance was remarkable from the first moment she put in the contacts,Ã¢â¬Â Meyer says.
Ã¢â¬ÅI 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.Ã¢â¬Â
Adds director Bill Condon, Ã¢â¬ÅShe 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.Ã¢â¬Â
The key to finding BellaÃ¢â¬â¢s inner vampire was all of StewartÃ¢â¬â¢s years as Bella the human.
Ã¢â¬ÅThe best aspect of every vampire is always creating an enhanced version of what they were as human beings,Ã¢â¬Â Stewart says. Ã¢â¬ÅI 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.Ã¢â¬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. Ã¢â¬ÅI guess the day my life changed was at Comic Con, when I met the fans for the first time,Ã¢â¬Â she says. Ã¢â¬ÅI was hit by this wave of human energy. It made me think, Ã¢â¬ËThis is not a normal movie.Ã¢â¬â¢ Ã¢â¬Â
