What was it like being on the set of Breaking Dawn?
Casey LaBow: "It was fun. At first, it was super overwhelming. I was really, really nervous initially..."
Casey LaBow: "Just the size, the scale. The first day I got there, I went to do hair and make-up tests for the director. We were on a very, very, very elaborate, huge scale set and I wasn't shooting that scene but I had to go and get hair and make-up tests. I just was wide-eyed, mouth open, and I got nervous."
And how was being one of the new players coming into an established franchise?
Casey LaBow: "At first I think that there was...it wasn't like a cliche...you have this pre-existing family of people who've shot Twilight 1, 2, 3, and now they're doing 4 and 5, and they have 40 new actors coming in. It's overwhelming. It's not like you're just going to walk up and go, 'Hi, nice to meet you,' and then do a scene with somebody. There's 40 people standing around, you know? So, it was overwhelming for everybody. Everybody was sort of taken aback by how large it was. It took a while for everybody to get their footing, get their comfort zone. Not a while...actually, it really didn't take that long. It took maybe like a week and then by then, we were all hanging out and having fun. But it was an interesting thing to walk into."
How long were you actually on the set?
Casey LaBow: "Seven months. And I got a long stick - I mean Kristen [Stewart], I've got to hand it to that girl. She was like 10 months, six days a week. That's a lot of work."
So with Kate, there are a lot of fans who think she and Garrett deserve their own book.
Casey LaBow: "Really? Well, I encourage all of those fans to contact Stephenie Meyer and let her know."
You haven't talked to Stephenie Meyer about it?
Casey LaBow: [Laughing] No, that's not really something you can do. 'Can you do me a favor? Can you go home and write me a book now?'"
Looking into your character's future, what do you think happens to her relationship with Garrett? Have you thought about what happens after Breaking Dawn ends?
Casey LaBow: "I think they go off and live happily ever after, and travel the world together. Garrett was a nomad; he was a traveler and so he didn't have a coven. He didn't have a family. Obviously, the Denalis - we're very tight-knit. We've been together for a very long time and so I think he comes and joins us. In my fantasy land, he comes and joins us and then he and I go off and perhaps travel the world together."
So, how much more are we going to see of Kate in Breaking Dawn Part 2? She's an integral player in the book.
Casey LaBow: "Yes. I can't say much. [Laughing] She's all up in that situation. Let me say this, I think that the fans will happy."
The wedding scene was one of the most anticipated scenes of the whole franchise. What was it like being on that set?
Casey LaBow: "Surreal. It was insane. It was the last thing we shot of the entire production, and so there's a lot of emotion going on because for everybody it was coming to the end. It was a close of the whole thing. None of us were allowed to see Kristen in the dress until the moment. So all of those reactions are actual reactions to it. There were a lot of reasons behind that."
Without giving anything away, how would you sum up Breaking Dawn - Part 2?
Casey LaBow: "Without giving any spoilers away...a whole lot of new vampires."
