Exclusive Interview: New Twilight Star Jodelle Ferland Is Team Edward!

Flythru Bag

With the third Twilight movie set to start filming in just a week and cast members already in Vancouver prepping for production, there are still details that are being kept secret from the public, and one of them is what part is the newest addition to the cast Jodelle Ferland going to play? The 13 year old actress, who had her first starring role in the movie Mermaids when she was just 4, was recently cast in the Eclipse and spoke with RadarOnline.com about her upcoming role. Jodelle said that for her audition she had to "do word for word a scene from the book," but when asked which one (since we know fans would be able to tell who she was playing) she couldn't give us any details. "I can't because I can't tell you who I'm playing." When asked if she at last liked her character she replied, "Of course! I wouldn't do it if I really didn't like the character."


Jodelle isn't actually a stranger to the Twilight family, she and Kristen Stewart starred in the movie The Messengers together in 2007. She told us a funny story about her role - "I actually played a little ghost boy in the movie, but I'm definitely playing a girl in Eclipse," and said "I'm excited to work with Kristen again, I had a few scenes with her in that movie," and that the brooding beauty who plays Bella "is a nice person to work with." In fact, Jodelle told us that if she had her choice to play anyone in Twilight "it would be Bella or Jane. I like Jane because she's really powerful and everybody respects her and lots of people are afraid of her and I think there's something about her that I like."

Jodelle has read all four Twilight books, which is obviously required reading these days, and told RadarOnline.com that when her two agents called to tell her that she got the role "I started freaking out and I had to hold the phone away from my head because I was jumping up and down and screaming I was so excited!" Not realizing that her was going to change so dramatically, Jodelle joked about her Twitter account. "I got Twitter a couple of weeks ago and I got 3000 more followers in three days," after it was announced that she was going to be in Eclipse. "My sister and I thought I'd probably get 50 more followers, and we were shocked!"


While Jodelle hasn't even read the script yet, she told us that she's "really looking forward to starting filming, I haven't spoken with anyone, not even Kristen, but I'm thrilled to be a part of this movie." She is really anxious to learn one thing, "I don't know what my costume or makeup will look like, and that's what I'm most looking forward to."

The ultimate question that everyone has an opinion on is really the most important one for Twilight fans. Is Jodelle Team Edward or Team Jacob? "Team Edward," she told us. "I just really can't figure out why I like Edward more, I don't know. It just seems natural. You know, everyone likes Edward better!" And is she ready to work with Rob Pattinson? "Yes, I can't wait!"
