Xavier Samuel as Riley Bryce Dallas Howard as Victoria Dakota Fanning as Jane
Bayer: Xavier, I love when anyone slowly walks out of water, what goes in to filming that scene? Xavier: We just really looked closely at Wild Things, Denise Richards [laughter]. Really strong source of inspiration. It took weeks to shoot.
Bayer: I guess I was sent to the “bad” vampires room. Dakota, I think you’re just misunderstood. Am I correct? Dakota: Yeah. Totally. That’s it.
Bayer: Bryce, your character seems to be a pro manipulating men, in this movie. Is it really that easy? Bryce: Well, the character Victoria, her primary objective is to destroy Bella out of vengeance because her mate, James, was killed in Twilight by the Cullens. So she’ll do anything, she’s brought almost to madness with her need to ayenge his death. Bayer: So you’re saying Riley is just a tool? [Laughter] Bryce: Well, it’s what Victoria does.
Bayer: Riley, have you had your opportunity to be mobbed by Twilight fans yet? Xavier: I haven’t yet, no. Bayer: Is that something you’re looking forward to? Xavier: Being mobbed? Bayer: Well, it’s a hardcore fan base. Xavier: Yeah, I think the support for the film is really amazing. But I guess I’m not under the same microscope as these other actors. So, I’ve managed to fly under the radar.
Bayer: Man/woman, it doesn’t matter. What other character from the Twilight series would you like to play? Bryce: Alice. She can see the future. Xavier: I think Jasper is a really interesting charcter with a great history. Dakota: I think Edward. Bryce: You’re actually probably the only actress where directors would actually want to see that.
