Bill Condon talks about how Rob inspired a Breaking Dawn scene

Robert Pattinson was influential in inspiring an important scene in Breaking Dawn: Part 1, says director Bill Condon. “I met with Rob a couple of months before we started,” Condon told us last week at the film’s Los Angeles press junket. “And we were having a general talk about everything about Twilight. He mentioned something that I hadn’t known before: one thing he’d been playing through out those first three movies [as Edward Cullen] was a man who was filled with regret, self-loathing.

Pattinson’s inspiration, said Condon, grew from Stephenie Meyer‘s unfinished book Midnight Sun, which details Edward’s decision to dabble in killing humans in the ’30s. Condon explains: “[Edward] realized he’d turned into a monster, and it was something that really weighed on him. Now he’d been playing with that across three movies, but it was barely mentioned in those movies. I went back and worked with [screenwriter] Melissa Rosenberg and we put that into the beginning of the movie. So you understood where Edward was coming from and then you were able to watch him shed that because the person he cared most about said, ‘OK, I see that but I accept you anyway,’ and then he’s able to accept himself.

“So much stuff comes out of working with the actors,”
added the director. We’ve seen the scene Condon is referring to and we love that it grew entirely from Rob’s research and relationship with Edward Cullen. We can’t wait to hear what other fans think!
