Sarah Clark, our favorite hair-brained mother of Bella in Twilight sits down with TVguide.com to tell them her thoughts on her character and the books.
TVGuide.com: Are you on board for the Twilight sequel, New Moon?
Clarke: You know, they still haven't told me. They're being so secretive about it. They know I'm doing press for Trust Me, so they haven't told me anything yet. I think they don't want anything to get out.
TVGuide.com: Have you read ahead with the other books to see what Bella's mom gets to do?
Clarke: I have, and I know I'm involved, but the mother is such a strange role, I have to say. My instincts as a mother would never jibe with half the things Renee does.
TVGuide.com: We'd be worried if they did!
Clarke: Even with the first book, I remember reading that the mother was always on the phone, whining. What's interesting in that? Luckily, Catherine [Hardwicke, who also wrote and directed Thirteen] gave me a lot more fun things to do, and gave us a real relationship. So that's the big question for the second book, where again the mother is relegated to the phone. I don't know if they'll stay true to that.
TVGuide.com: If you as a teenager had to choose between a vampire boy and a werewolf, which way do you think you'd lean?
Clarke: Oh, I'd definitely go vampire. Werewolves are too hairy.
TVGuide.com: But wouldn't the hickeys be worse?
Clarke: Maybe. But you could wear a turtleneck.
