EXCLUSIVE! Twilight star Nikki Reed takes Marie Claire through the final moments of filming the hit franchise
Kristen Stewart recently said she was ‘perfectly fine’ about Twilight taking its last breath and that it was ‘pretty easy to walk away’. But after five films Marie Claire online couldn’t quite believe the entire Breaking Dawn Part 2 cast felt the same so we caught up with Kellan Lutz and Nikki Reed to ask them.
Nikki, who is famed for playing Rosalie Cullen, agreed with her co-star Kristen about the absence of tears, but said it wasn’t because they weren’t upset.
She told us: ‘There was a weird lack of emotion when we wrapped, but looking back on it now I think it was because none of us wanted to really accept that was the last day of filming.
‘I don’t think it was because the feelings weren’t there, no one wanted to acknowledge them. I feel really sad.’
Nikki’s on-screen beau, Kellan Lutz who brought Emmett Cullen to life, also added that, although it was the end of an era, finishing the Twilight franchise was something of a relief.
He told us: ‘The emotions of working for pretty much seven months away from home kind of trumps the emotions of wrapping up the project.’
Despite saying this, he added: ‘But we all loved our characters and working together.’
What do you make of Nikki Reed and Kellan Lutz’s comments? Are you sad to see the end of Twilight too?
