Kristen Stewart\'s Take on Bella Swan in ECLIPSE
Posted by Robstengasm on Tuesday, April 27, 2010 Categories: Kristen Stewart Robert Pattinson Eclipse
Kristen Stewart, who turned 20 a couple of weeks ago, has recently told Entertainment Weekly that Bella Swan will be different in the upcoming The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. "I wasn’t as tortured as I was on New Moon. Bella really knows what she wants in Eclipse. She’s not just a dumb kid talking because she’s in love."
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about a "more mature Bella." Stewart’s remarks (which, in all honesty, I’ve just read) seem to confirm my expectations. Also, there was an 11-month gap between filming Twilight in April 2008 and New Moon in early 2009. According to MTV.com, Eclipse began shooting less than two months later. (Between the first and second Twilight films, Stewart worked on at least one project, Welcome to the Rileys; it must have been hard going from a foul-mouthed, abused pole dancer-sex worker back to Bella Swan in New Moon. The Runaways, which earned Stewart quite a bit of praise for her portrayal of rocker Joan Jett, was shot in summer ‘09, after Eclipse.)
Such a brief hiatus is excellent for an actor. It’s not as repetitive as doing a stage play every night, when you have to "freshen up" your character for every performance so it won’t come across as a mechanical creation. And it’s much better than playing the same character again after the actor has gone totally "cold."
Once that happens, it’d be like having to start things from scratch. The actor will have to find his/her character’s emotional/psychological place once again, and that can’t be too easy.
I expect the performances, especially those of Stewart and Robert Pattinson, to be much superior in Eclipse. Both have grown a lot as actors since the first Twilight was shot two years ago.
I believe Taylor Lautner will be better, too, but to date his only film work since Twilight has been a supporting role in the all-star Valentine’s Day. So, it’s harder to tell how much he has matured as a performer.
On the other hand, I can tell for a fact that Lautner has certainly matured in terms of looks. He no longer looks like a boy. He looks like a man.
Directed by David Slade from a screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opens on June 30.
