A number of 'The Twilight Saga's New Moon' stars, including Taylor Lautner, talk about details of the sequel's key scenes, including Bella's three-way date and Jasper's out-of-control madness.
Though several stills and the first official trailer of "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" have been released, details of the highly anticipated "Twilight" sequel keep pouring in with the discussion of the film's key scenes. Taking it to MTV, several cast members of the vampire drama series opened up about Bella's three-way date and the infamous birthday scene among others.
On the three-way date, actor Michael Welch who plays Mike Newton in the series revealed that the scene almost ended up on the chopping block. "Kristen [Stewart] and Taylor [Lautner] had to lobby to get this one scene in the film that wasn't originally in - and I am forever indebted to them for that," he fessed up.
He then went on explaining on the scene itself, saying "There's a scene that's in the book, the three-way date between Jacob and Bella and Mike, where Mike ends up getting sick, and it's just very awkward." But, he promised that audience won't see his character projectile vomit or anything in the movie. "We're talking a little bit," he shared. "A little sick."
As for the Bella's party gone wrong scene, Peter Facinelli recalled the day they shot the scene where Jackson Rathbone went all out for portraying the anguished vampire Jasper Hale. "He unleashed the madness; it was crazy," he said. "It took me and Kellan [Lutz] - non-acting - to hold him back." It was said that co-star Elizabeth Reaser also got knocked over during the take.
"Jasper, played by Jackson Rathbone, kinda loses it when Bella cuts herself," Lutz chimed in. "It's fun to work with your friends and see a side of them that you really don't expect. That's where the acting comes into play. Jackson did an amazing job portraying that scene, and it was fun being my character to try and stop him."
The two scenes aside, Taylor Lautner shared on his on-set improvisation. He recalled, "We'd just be in a random forest and, after Jacob transforms [into a wolf], he all of a sudden becomes very agile, and I wanted to show that, because pre-transformation, he's clumsy. But as soon as he transforms, he's agile. So we'd be in a random forest, and I'd be looking around going, 'What can I do to show Jacob's agility in here?'"
"Sometimes [director] Chris [Weitz] would be like, 'No, Taylor, we don't want you getting hurt, spraining an ankle,'" the 17-year-old added. "But I was like, 'Well, how about I just jump off that and then jump through this?' And he was like, 'All right, give it a shot.'" More on other scenes' details can be read via MTV.
A sequel to highly-popular movie "Twilight", "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" is based on the second book by Stephenie Meyer and will hit the U.S. theaters on November 20. This time, Edward will leave Bella abruptly, leaving her unguarded from outside threat. While devastated, Bella is comforted by her growing friendship with Jacob Black.
