The Twilight cast hit Comic-Con to talk about Breaking Dawn part one, and I had a few minutes to chat with Julia Jones, who plays Leah Clearwater, the lone werewolf girl in the wolf pack. Jones chatted about her role in the film and her emotional scenes with Taylor Lautner, as well as getting to check out the big Breaking Dawn wedding.
BuzzSugar: What are we seeing from Leah in Breaking Dawn?
Julia Jones: All my scenes are with Jacob [and] that was such a treat because they're very intimate scenes, and pretty much until this point all our scenes were like, wolf pack scenes: all of us, running around and saying a few lines and doing a lot of "business." So to actually get to have these scenes that go somewhere, where you care so much about your character because you've been living her for so long, and to really get into what happens with both of them, is rewarding. I'm excited to see how that plays out.
Buzz: What was it like at this point being the only girl in the wolf pack?
JJ: It changed. It's very different this time, because the dynamic of the wolf pack changed — Jacob and Leah and Seth sort of break off. It felt a lot more comfortable. Part of why she leaves the pack in the first place is because she feels like she doesn't belong there. She just feels so out of place and constantly trying to prove herself and be one of them, which she's never gonna be; she's not a guy. So when they leave, the dynamic shifts, and it's like I'm with my best friend and my brother. We just feel like this close, tight-knit family.
Buzz: You're not in the wedding scene, but did you get to see any of it shot?
JJ: That was tricky for me, because the wedding was shot toward the very end of filming, and literally every character except for me was in the wedding. I got to the point where I just started going to the set to hang out. But it was great; I saw everybody dressed up! I'm so glad that I did that, because it was just such a wonderful way to finish filming.
