At the Twilight panel held earlier today at Comic-Con, stars Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattison were on hand to discuss their roles in the sequel to one of last year's biggest hits. As readers of the novel already know, Edward is a minor character in New Moon and that posed a challenge to the movie's makers as to how to make sure Pattinson was given sufficient screen time. Their solution was to have Edward appear as a ghostly vision only to Bella. "It's suggestive," Stewart said at the panel (and reported by Sci-Fi Wire.) "It's how she remembers him, not necessarily how he actually is."
Pattinson recalled what it was like to report to work on the New Moon set. "I started three weeks after we started shooting, and my first scenes were the apparition scenes, which involved me doing maybe one word a week," Pattinson said. "I had a pretty much stress-free job of three months. It was great for me. All the pressure was on Taylor [Lautner, who plays Jacob.]"
Sci-Fi Wire also has an interview with Lautner where the actor discusses the physical training regime that he undertook to get into shape for the film. He also waxed philosophically about the amazing amount of attention that Twilight has captured. "I think everything is kind of crazy about this franchise," Lautner said. "That's why we love it so much and why the fans do as well. There are definitely fans who separate into separate teams. I don't know, sometimes it gets me a little nervous, because I'm trying to live up to the fans expectations and trying to represent Team Jacob in a way. I don't want to disappoint them so that's why I worked so hard to not only mentally and emotionally but physically as well. This guy [Rob Pattinson] is tough competition."
