When Jackson Rathbone visited the BULLETT offices one recent Tuesday for a photo shoot and interview, he came equipped with his crimson-haired better half, stylist Sheila Hafsadi and 6-month-old baby son, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI. Asking for style advice from the teensy little progeny, Rathbone was a decidedly warmer, more soulful version of the character he has been known for over the past 4 years, Twilight’s blood-lusting Cullen clan vampire, Jasper Hale. With the Twilight movie franchise taking its final lap in theaters, the world is entering a new life cycle, and so is Rathbone. This month he debuts his first solo album, Billy Badass, an explorative work of multiple genres, blues and country included, where Rathbone takes his love of storytelling into record form. Here Rathbone talks about the last night on the Twilight set, his sartorial choices choices (one crushed red velvet suit in particular), and his childhood travelling the world.
How many interviews do you think you’ve done since the whole Twilight franchise has started?
Since it began?
Are you going to miss all that craziness?
Yes and no. I like crazy. I was born on the run. I was born travelling. I was born in Singapore, so I like moving around. I like being in constant motion. So I’ll miss that aspect of it. As an actor, I like being someone else. So it’s kind of like the hardest part of it all—doing the press. It’s one of those requisites of the business that you don’t find out about until you’re in the business. When I was a little actor back on the stage in high school, I was just playing parts. That’s what I love: being someone else.
What was the craziest or most memorable moment from the Twilight experience?
The first Twilight premiere. Pulling up in the car with my parents in town and seeing all the people out there, that was weird. That was a trip. We didn’t think it would be as big as it was or had become. It was gaining steam as we were filming and by the time we were done filming, it was a lot bigger than we had anticipated. But when we got to the red carpet there were a lot of people screaming and taking pictures of us, and yelling our names, which was really weird.
Are you going to keep in touch with anyone from the cast?
I think so. Definitely. We’ve become good friends over the years, and Nikki Reed’s the godmother of my baby, so I think we’re going to see plenty of her.

Jackson Rathbone talks about how the original vampires in ‘Twilight’ initiated new vampires brought into the cast.
Immortality leaves plenty of time for nostalgia, but Jackson Rathbone, known to fans the world over as vampire Jasper Hale in “The Twilight Saga,” is too busy to reminisce for long. Fresh off a string of international premieres for “Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” the fifth and final installment in the blockbuster series, Rathbone sat down with The Daily to diagnose his fan base’s PTSD — that’s Post-Twilight Saga Disorder — and discuss his latest creative endeavors.

After the premiere of the new movie from The Twilight Saga, vampires have dominated many conversations of young locals.
Jackson Rathbone, who plays Jasper Hale in the “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” was at the Four Seasons Hotel and Resort on Friday to discuss why the saga was such a phenomenon to begin with.
“I think what Stephenie Meyer was able to create was putting out that there is the duality that we experience in life, which is love and fear,” Rathbone said. “You have this character that falls in love with someone she should fear. I think that when love conquers fear, it is something that is so innate in our human sensibilities that we are immediately attracted to it.”
“There are a lot of love stories out there, but there is not that sense of having to conquer fear. To have the sensibility and connectivity that you can fall in love and be love for eternity is something I firmly believe in and that people look for in life. So to me, that’s what draws people to it.”
Rathbone could not reveal much about the highly anticipated battle scene, but he believes it is going to leave fans speechless.
“I love action sequences. It’s really fun getting to utilize that vampire strength and speed because we didn’t get to do it a lot,” he said. “In a lot of the ‘Twilight’ films, we didn’t get a chance to really dive into what makes a vampire movie so great. So it was amazing to get a chance to dive in there.”
Stephenie Meyer hardly is the first modern author to have a novel successfully transition to the big screen, but she’s certainly among the most notable.
The Twilight author, whose next adaptation, The Host, is due out in March, created a phenomenon with her first book series, selling about 1.6 million print and 778,000 e-book copies of The Twilight Saga in 2012 alone. The fifth and final film in the series, Breaking Dawn – Part 2, opened to a whopping $340.9 million globally this past weekend.
Meyer released her first non-Twilight novel, The Host, in 2008 and serves as a producer on the film adaptation directed by Andrew Niccol. Like Twilight, The Host is set in the realm of sci-fi centering on a young, female protagonist caught in the midst of a pseudo-love triangle. In the tale, the human race has been taken over by an alien species called Souls, which take over the mind and body of their human hosts. Saoirse Ronan plays Melanie Stryder, a character who refuses to allow a Soul to fully control her thoughts.
“It’s the duality, I think,” says Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale) of Meyer’s success. “Within The Host, she has this character that’s of two minds, and throughout the entire Twilight Saga, you’ve got a girl that’s in love with two guys. It’s interesting, that duality in human nature, light and dark, fear and love, love and hate. It’s something that we’re all faced with every day.”
