“I really can’t say too much, you know? There’s a guy from Summit behind you with a gun.”
That’s Jackson Rathbone, the mega-hottie star of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” informing me that my life – or his, or both our lives, in fact – were in immediate danger of being snuffed out by a surly-looking Summit assassin at a Comic-Con press line. And here all I’d done was ask him what it was like to shoot the epic final battle sequence.
“He might shoot me if I say anything,” said the actor, who is probably better looking than you. “Or you. Most likely me, but he might shoot me through you, and then we’d both die.”
Never mind the fact that the film in question is the adaptation of a young adult novel that millions of people have already read – it’s just that I’m too young to die. On to safer topics.
So Jackson, tell me: what was it like working with director Bill Condon?
“Bill brought this kinda certain old-school class, and…I almost wanna say like Old Hollywood, you know?” said Rathbone, who made me quiver inside. “It’s just that kind of classy feeling that he really brought to the series, which is a nice way to close it out.”
