After years of nearly blinding "Twilight" fanaticism, the moment fans have been waiting for finally arrived this year: Edward and Bella actually doing it. Fittingly, all that pent-up lust -- which is let loose during their honeymoon in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" -- is released in a violent explosion of passion that results in shredded pillows, a broken headboard and the conception of a mommy-eating monster vampire baby. All the debates over Team Edward vs. Team Jacob have been resolved, and by all accounts, the ultimate winners in the Bella sweepstakes are the fans themselves. It's about time.
Q: Did you know the story of Breaking Dawn when you wrote ‘Turning Page?’
Ryan O'Neal: Right before I wrote "Turning Page," I watched all three movies back to back, followed by a bit of research on what was to come in Breaking Dawn. So, yes, I did know the primary events that were going to take place. I knew that Edward and Bella were about to be married, which would of course lead to the Honeymoon. So, I decided to write a love song!
Q: What did you think when you first heard it coupled with the ‘First Time’ scene?
Ryan O'Neal: I was ecstatic! I was just so so excited to see where they used it in the film! The folks behind Twilight do a very good job a keeping details secret, so I wasn't entirely sure where the song would be used in the final edit of the film. And I just couldn't believe that the instrumental version played during Bella walking down the aisle, and then the full version during their love scene! I was so blown away seeing and hearing it all at the premiere for the very first time! It was an incredible experience. The scenes were so beautifully crafted and I just couldn't be more thrilled that my music gets to play a part.
Q: You’ve said before that you wrote this song from Edward’s perspective. What was it like to step into that character’s mind?
Ryan O'Neal: After watching the movies, and appreciating Edward's character, I decided that the song should be sung from his point of view. It was really fun and inspiring to write from that perspective - to be immersed in the Twilight story and write what I imagine the characters might be feeling. In every topic or perspective I write from, I try very hard to write it as personally as possible - so I definitely wrote "Turning Page" with my own experiences in mind as well.
This is coming straight from Albert Hinkle's fb account regarding 'On The Road' According to him the reason why we haven't seen or heard any news about the film is because there is some kind of legal problem. Let's hope this is just a bump on the road so we can soon have OTR!
