Kiralee Hayashi, Kristen's Stunt Double, Mentions Her

The Punahou graduate and champion gymnast, Hawaii's Kiralee Hayashi, performed as Kristen Stewart's stunt double in the two "Twilight: Breaking Dawn" films, with the final and best-reviewed installment still generating box-office heat after opening last month.

Hayashi, who returns home this week for a holiday vacation, spent five months in 2010 working in a converted warehouse in Baton Rouge, La., on stunts for the spectacular battle sequences. Look for her in any scene "where Kristen is remotely violent," she said by phone from Los Angeles, where she now lives.

"And there's so much stuff that didn't end up in the film. ... It will probably be in the DVD extras."

Hayashi said she thought she was done when the "Twilight" film crew moved on to Vancouver, and was surprised to get a call "from Kristen's team" asking her if she would continue as the star's stunt double.

"Kristen put in a good word for me. She fought to keep me," Hayashi said.
The call meant almost two more months of shooting, this time outdoors in the Canadian wilds.
