Jackson Rathbone, the Jasper Hale of the the 'Twilight Saga' series, addresses fans' concerns over Edward's screen time in 'The Twilight Saga's New Moon'.
Putting an ease on fans' mind, Jackson Rathbone assured that Robert Pattinson's Edward still plays a big part in "The Twilight Saga's New Moon". When MTV caught up with him on the set of his new movie "Girlfriend", the actor who plays Jasper Hale in the "Twilight Saga" series uttered what he knows of the second movie.
"I've heard people are concerned about Edward and the Cullens not being in the film, but Edward is very prominent in the film, especially in Bella's mind," the 24-year-old reaffirmed previous report that Edward will appear as Bella's hallucination in the second film. "The way that [director] Chris Weitz worked it out is beautiful, and I think that people are going to love it."
While he noted that Edward will have plenty of screen time, his character and the other Cullen family members are not so fortunate. "It's one of those things where we want to follow as closely to the books as possible," he said. "In 'New Moon,' you don't see that much of the Cullens. You really don't. So there's not too much of us in there."
The Sokka of upcoming "The Last Airbender" explained that Jasper will only be seen at the Bella's birthday party scene and when the family vote on Bella's fate. "I only shot for three weeks, and out of those three weeks that I was [in Vancouver] I think I actually filmed four days," he shared further. "So, I mean, I'm not so much in 'New Moon.' "
"The Twilight Saga's New Moon" itself is an adaptation to Stephenie Meyer's second novel of her "Twilight" series. It will follow Bella when she is left abruptly by Edward. Being unguarded from outside threat and devastated following his departure, Bella is comforted by her growing friendship with Jacob. The movie is due to arrive in theaters across United States on November 20. A new clip featuring Bella in a confrontation with the Wolf Pack has recently been released via iTunes.
