Transcript:Eclipse Bryce Dallas Howard, Edi Gathegi InterviewsRebecca Murray from About.com Hollywood Movies at the LA premiere of Summit Entertainment's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
Bryce Dallas Howard - 'Victoria' in The Twilight Saga: EclipseBeing a Twilight fan, was being on the set everything you thought it was going to be?
Bryce Dallas Howard: "Yeah, yeah. But kind of this weird shift happened for me where I went from being this intense, rabid fan to just feeling this inordinate amount of responsibility, and getting really quickly thrust into actor mode of like, 'Okay, what can I do? What do I need to do?' And so I kind of haven't gotten out of actor mode yet. It'll be maybe months from now I'll kind of be like, 'Oh my gosh, what did I just experience?'"
Is it true your dad is a Twi-hard?
Bryce Dallas Howard: "I wouldn't call him a Twi-hard because I have such high standards for what a Twi-hard, but he really loves the films."
You're a big fan of Robert Pattinson's. How was it to wrestle around in the movie with him?
Bryce Dallas Howard: "Not bad. Not a bad day at work. I have to admit, I left like 15 messages where I'm like, 'I am right now doing this with Robert Pattinson...' People were like, 'Cool, Bryce, Cool.'"
How has this whole fan experience been? They've been camping out since Sunday.
Bryce Dallas Howard: "I know. I mean, amazing. When you do a film, you just hope that people will show up. And the fact that they're showing up for the premiere like this is...it's, I don't know, it's precious. It's really something that I don't think I'll ever probably experience again."
Edi Gathegi - 'Laurent' in Twilight and New MoonYou're dead now, what's up with that? I saw this movie - you're not in it.
Edi Gathegi: "I'm not in this?"
You're not in it.
Edi Gathegi: "Peace out."
They could have brought you back.
Edi Gathegi: "Yeah, they could have. But you know what? The fans are so attached to what exactly happens in the books."
Edi Gathegi: "Great fans."
What else are you working on?
Edi Gathegi: "Atlas Shrugged. Have you heard of that? It's a very small book."
Edi Gathegi: "It's only been a bestseller for like four decades."
And it's been trying to be a film forever.
Edi Gathegi: "For 17 years, and it's happening now. Happening in LA."
Who are you playing?
Edi Gathegi: "I play Eddie Willers. [...]He's the assistant to the president of the company, the co-president. And back in the '50s when you're the assistant to the president, you're basically in line to be the president. So it's like a high-powered position. I'm basically like, I guess, the heart. It's an interesting piece and my character, I like to think about him as like the guy with compassion. That's who I play."
