Just read a journal entry from a fan about her experiences as an extra on the set of New Moon.
The scene they were filming that day was the one where Ashley and Kristen make their way up Volterra to the Piazza in the yellow Porsche. We were supposed to act as if we didn’t notice the car trying to get through the crowd until it honked and was near us, because obviously we had to get out of the way. We did the take several times, from all different directions and angles. They were using the body doubles that day and Ashley’s double was a man, which we found pretty hilarious! (Alice doesn’t have a ’stache!) We figured they chose him because of his driving experience. He was clearly very adept at maneuvering the car through the narrow streets.
