During a break from the “Breaking Dawn” set in Louisiana, Ashley Greene answered some questions for MTV via e-mail, hitting on subjects like working with Miley Cyrus, her most anticipated Breaking Dawn movie scene and what it was like to see Kristen Stewart as a vampire.
MTV: 2011 is shaping up to be a big year for you, coming off all the “Twilight” exposure and now having some prominent roles in “The Apparition,” “LOL” and a bunch of other projects coming down the line. Does 2011 feel like it’s going to be a particularly big year?
Ashley Greene: Definitely. I’m very excited for it. While it will be sad to finish filming the last installment of “The Twilight Saga,” I’m grateful to have so much to look forward to. There’s so much going on and so many wonderful opportunities popping up for 2011, and somehow I feel very Zen right now — I’m in a good place!
MTV: Do you have any goals for the year beyond what you’re already doing? What would you like to look back on at the end of the year and say, “I’m glad I accomplished that”?
Greene: “Twilight” and my upcoming projects have given me an amazing platform. I’m looking forward to doing as many diverse projects and roles as I can fit in this year! I’m also looking forward to continuing to make strides with mark’s m.powerment campaign; it’s important to me that I use my voice to inspire my young, female fans to pursue their dreams, just like I did. I’m so thankful for everything in 2010 and am extremely optimistic and excited about how much more can be accomplished this year.
MTV: What “Breaking Dawn” scene are you most excited to film?
Greene: Most excited to film and see would be the big fight sequence against the Volturi. As a cast, we like to do as many of our own stunts as possible, so it’s fun and challenging to shoot those scenes. Jeff Imada, the stunt coordinator, is such a blast to work with as well. I’m learning so much from him.
MTV: Tell us about Bill Condon’s style on set. How does he differ from prior “Twilight” directors?
Greene: “There’s no way to describe what it’s like working with Bill Condon except incredible! He is so professional, patient and a fantastic leader. I get excited going to set every day knowing I get to work with him. Each director has brought such a different energy and perspective to the films. Bill is very relaxed and authoritative, in a good way. I feel very comfortable working with him.
MTV: Kristen Stewart said at the People’s Choice Awards that she filmed some scenes as a vampire. What was your reaction to seeing Kristen as a vamp?
Greene: Glad to have her officially join the Cullen family!
