Guri Weinberg (who plays Stefan) took to his own personal blog to answer some of the questions he gets asked most about working on the Breaking Dawn Movie:
What’s it like working with Stephenie Meyer?
Stephenie’s success is just staggering and I am pretty sure many would and probably did feel intimidated around her. Here’s the secret about Stephenie that I accidentally discovered, though…she is normal. REALLY normal. And funny. But mostly normal…like the kind of person you’d hang out with. Just to shoot the shit.
At first, I was pretty shy…for me. And nervous – I met Stephenie AFTER I’d been cast when some of us were called down to Baton Rouge for a make-up/wardrobe test before shooting began. So, I didn’t know how she felt about me or my choices for Stefan. I mean, I know if she would have HATED my audition tape, I wouldn’t be there but you know, maybe she was just like “Eh…Guri…whatever…thank GOD we also got better actors…”
When I finally met her in Baton Rouge, I was already in costume and make-up. I shook her hand and she said, “You are EXACTLY how I pictured Stefan” and smiled. And I relaxed. Like a baby, actually. In fact, I wet my pants…not really. Okay, a little.
So, from that point on, we just clicked. We chatted a lot and some folks that hadn’t quite figured out the ‘normal’ part about her were speculating as to what she had to say and if there was any ‘Twilight’ secrets she shared. I actually had some folks come up to me asking, “What do you talk about?” So, as a public service, I would like to disclose one of our ‘top secret’ conversations now. I think the one that sums it up best is this story :
On set, there were different ‘video villages’ which are areas with monitors displaying different camera angles and chairs huddled around. It was a bit tense on set as we were behind schedule. However, I’m just an actor in a VERY silly mood and so I go find Stephenie…’cause her village was down like that.
“Guuuuurrrrriiiiii….how are ya?”
“What’s wrong?”, she asks, all sincerely.
“Where are the Jewish vampires, Stephenie? Not ONE Jewish vampire?!?”
She laughs. “Because it goes against everything Judaism is about, GURI.”
“I don’t think you’re seeing it. See, if there were some Jews in the vamp camp, we could sidestep all battles in favor of negotiation…plus, I think the vamp world needs a good kosher deli…”
Now, I notice Lily Collins there. She’s laughing at my stupid Jewish vampire joke, so I immediately like her. And to the fans that are trying to stir up competition between the two Snow White movies, IMHO, they are VERY different films, they BOTH look great and I am a fan of BOTH actresses.
Back to the day. So, Stephenie is telling me about ‘The Hunger Games’ and what a great book that is and then we discuss the sacrifices we will all be making that night, as shooting is going to go LATE. I mention that I am VERY distressed that I will be missing my new favorite show, ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’. My wife’s agitated and colorful commentary after each episode is just nothing short of priceless. But, that night, alas…no RHOBH. Stephenie doesn’t even know the show and I’m aghast. Lily is also aghast. I look at Lily, who I now see is an incredibly astute young woman with FINE taste in reality television and we high five. We then describe the show to Stephenie by acting it out. She seems unimpressed by the show yet oddly adamant that we keep discussing our viewpoints about it with her. Oh! Right – and then Stephenie makes fun of me AD NAUSEUM for watching it. Not Lily, she got off scott-free for her allegiance to RHOBH. Just me. Whatever.
So, now everyone knows. Jewish vampires and the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are excellent examples of the scintillating, exclusive topics Stephenie and I discussed.
What was it like being involved in Breaking Dawn – the LAST film of the Twilight franchise?
Obviously, we all realized that we were a part of something epic and had the appropriate level of reverence while shooting.
Wait. That’s not what happened. Here’s a typical on set day :
We’re all on set against a green screen and massive amounts of fake snow. Shoot dates were getting long and we were all extremely silly. Plus, there were cardboard cut outs of the ‘wolves’. If THAT’S not fodder for juvenile behavior, I don’t know what is. So, par for the course, one of the P.A.s starts taping various notes to unsuspecting people’s backs (tagging – BD style). Wyck Godfrey is JUST NOT HAVING IT. He’s the producer, we were behind schedule and he certainly does not want the shoot to devolve further with antics such as this.

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!

Breaking Dawn movie vampires Cameron Bright (aka Alec) and Judi Shekoni (aka Zafrina) Tweeted some new deets! Cameron revealed that they have done some interviews for the media already, while Judi talks about spending time with the Breaking Dawn cast!
Carther Burnwell (pictured right; between Bill Condon and Catherine Hardwicke) was the composer behind the beautiful Twilight score, and now he is reportedly returning to compose the score for the Breaking Dawn movie Part 1 and the Breaking Dawn movie Part 2!
According to IndieWire:
“Coen Brothers and Spike Jonze regular collaborator Carter Burwell is set to return to the ‘Twilight’ since working on the first film to perform scoring duties for the final installment of the series, the two parter “Twilight: Breaking Dawn.”
Burwell has an existing relationship with the director of the final two parts, Bill Condon, having collaborated on “Kinsey” and “Gods And Monsters” and will return to the position after Alexandre Desplat followed him for “New Moon” with Howard Shore stepping in for “Eclipse.”
Shooting began this past November with all major cast members such as Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Dakota Fanning, Michael Sheen, Anna Kendrick and Ashley Greene reprising their roles. The two parts will be shot as one project and will then be respectively released on November 18th, 2011 and November 16th, 2012. And in case you haven’t do so already, check out Burwell’s score for “True Grit,” it’s ace.”
USA Today had the chance to chat with Twilight Saga Producer Wyck Godfrey where he gave us some Breaking Dawn movie info:
“Q: Where does the story split in half?
A: “We basically want to take the audience through the emotional part of Bella’s journey as she becomes a vampire. The first part will cover the wedding, the honeymoon and the birth.” The film ends just before she embarks on her supernatural transformation.
Q: The book has three segments, two of which present Bella’s point of view and a middle that’s devoted to the perspective of her rejected werewolf suitor, Jacob (Taylor Lautner). How is that handled?
A: “The story will break from her and follow Jacob throughout the course of the movie as he struggles with his own dilemma. There is a sense that as Bella and the Cullens (Edward’s makeshift vampire clan) deal with her pregnancy, the world is still turning outside with Jacob.”
Q: Why was Bill Condon, the Oscar-winning filmmaker best known for his musicals as the screenwriter of 2002′s Chicagoand the director of 2006′s Dreamgirls, selected as the director of the finale?
A: “These films have the most difficult stuff from a performance standpoint. With his history of directing, I can’t think of anyone who would be better at bringing out the best in an actor.” Plus, the director, who did the 1995 sequel to Candyman, is a fright-fare enthusiast. “He has an appetite for the genre and a passion for the Twilight books and movies.”
Q: Considering what goes on during the torturous birth process, how can the rating be PG-13?
A: With Twilight‘s core of under-18 fans, “it would be a crime against our audience to go R-rated.” However, “this is based on a much more mature book. We need to progress and be more sophisticated.”
A compromise: Having the bloody, bone-crushing delivery be seen only through Bella’s eyes. “She is looking through the haze, experiencing pain and everything rushing around her. We only see what she sees.”
