Melissa Rosenberg on Harry Clearwater's Heart Attack


“In the book, Harry Clearwater’s death, heart attack is mentioned as something that’s off screen, although it plays a crucial role in the structure of the books,” said Melissa. “Reading that it was Harry Clearwater’s heart attack it just gave me the idea of, why don’t we see this? Stephenie [Meyer] doesn’t specify what caused the heart attack, so I decided, well, you know, if could be caused by something startling him. It could be caused by fear.”

As Melissa said, in the novel there is no explanation for Harry’s death, just how it worked as a plot point. By adding that it was a sighting of Victoria while he and Charlie were “hunting” for the wolf pack that set off the heart attack doesn’t violate Stephenie’s story, and instead adds a new dimension to that moment.

“It was a way to keep Victoria alive, it was a way to keep Charlie and the hunt alive, the danger to Charlie alive,” said Melissa, “and that’s where we get a really great action sequence with Victoria that all blends together with important parts of the movie and bring parts of the book forward. I particularly like that.”

i love that scene , tom yorke's hearing damage and the wolf pack chancing victoria while bella goes off to jump the cliff , the whole scene is just beautiful, my only question is , is how are they gonna do leah and seth's transformation , cause stephenie did say harry's heart attack was cause by seeing his daughter and son transform , i hope they figure out a good way to explain leah and seths transformation .
