Here is a new video from MTV of Nikki Reed where they caught up with her at a NYC event to chat about Breaking Dawn. [MTV annoyingly has regional blocks on their videos so not everyone can view them. Please read below for what Nikki said if you're unable to view the video]
“We start shooting soon and we just got the script a few days ago, so that’s exciting,” Nikki revealed. “They really do capture the essence of the books and the story and they’re very faithful, and I think what the studio, as well as the actors and the writers, have all sort of realized is that’s the success of this, the origin [a.k.a Stephenie's source material] is obviously where the success came from,” she said. “So we would be sort of silly to stray away from that.”
Nikki went on to say that her character’s interactions with Jacob (Taylor Lautner) definitely stand-out.
“I have to say that in ‘Breaking Dawn,’ Jacob and Rosalie have an especially… their relationship is pretty unique,” she said with a smile. (Fans of the book know that Rosalie and Jacob have a few very heated interactions regarding the birth of Renesmee.) “It’s quite entertaining.”
We think those scenes will definitely be fun to watch, especially given the fact that Nikki has already expressed how much she enjoys her younger co-star.
“I love Taylor so much and I’m so proud of him and what he’s doing,” Nikki told us back in August.
What scenes or characters are you most looking forward to seeing in “Breaking Dawn“?
I have to admit, I’m excited for some ‘blondie’ & ‘pup’ jokes
“What is that saying? Nothing makes two people bond more than the hate of another?” she said. “I kind of feel like that [describes Bella and Rosalie's relationship], but in relation to love in ‘Breaking Dawn,’ because they both love this child so much.”
“I think it’s finally the one thing that’s strong enough to bring them together — their love for this [child]. It’s bizarre,” Nikki said, referencing Bella and Rosalie’s not-too-friendly relationship in the first three “Twilight Saga” books. “It’s like they learn to co-exist for the sake of the kid, almost like they’re a divorced couple.”
