Bridal shower It’s a nice day for a wet wedding…
The fourth Twilight Saga film has been a long time coming for fans – it’ll have been 16 months since Eclipse hit the cinemas by the time Breaking Dawn: Part 1 finally arrives. But form what we’ve glimsed so far, it’s going to have been worth the wait!
Engaged during Eclipse, Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) are quick to wed – but as idyllic as the ceremony seems on screen, it was something of an endurance test for the actors involved… “It rained the whole time we shot the wedding scenes” recalls Peter Facinella, who plays Edward’s adoptive father, Carlisle Cullen. “They blocked it out by putting tarps up, so you’ll never see it, but it was very wet and muddy and cold.”
“It was rough,” agrees Kellan Lutz, who plays Edward’s adoptive brother, Emmett. “I felt bad for the women on the film – they were wearing these beautiful, skintight dresses and didn’t have heaters by them. And a lot of us were playing vampires so we had to not shiver, because vampires don’t get cold!”
Fortunately, Stewart recalls the wedding scenes a little more fondly. “When I walked on set, and saw the entire cast sitting in the pews, it was emotional in such a real way – I just literally felt like thanking them all for coming!”
DID YOU KNOW? The Vancouver Island set was evacuated due to tsunami fears, after the Japanese earthquake struck on 11 March, but thankfully everyone was OK.
