THR: Let’s talk about some of the most talked-about scenes of the latest film. Were you shocked at how graphic Bella’s birth scene was?
Greene: It was a bit hard to watch at points, but overall, I think [director] Bill Condon was extremely sensitive and conscientious of our younger audience. He had the difficult job of staying true to the book without turning off a major sector of our audience. I think he did a good job of balancing that task.
THR: Can you describe the lengths the production went to in order to keep Bella’s wedding dress under wraps?
Greene: We were literally under wraps! All of us, but most importantly Kristen, wore sacks when we were shuttled to and from the set. There were helicopters and paparazzi everywhere — it was a massive covert operation to keep it all a secret!
THR: Did the wedding scenes live up to your expectations?
Greene: Absolutely. As a fan of the series myself, I’ve been waiting four years for this moment, just like everyone else. It was magical watching the words on the pages of the book and script transform into this beautiful, live-action moment. The scene holds a lot of weight and was also special, because it was shot on the last days of filming.
THR: How do they portray Renesmee’s (Mackenzie Foy) advanced growth and supernatural intelligence in the next film?
Greene: If I told you, I’d have to kill you! The truth is, the fans already know the thru line of Breaking Dawn Part 2 thanks to the book, so we’re trying hard to keep what we can a secret, so they can savor the experience of the last film. What I will say is that they won’t be disappointed!
