Is it intimidating playing a character that’s already loved by so many people?
It is intimidating. It also adds a lot of fun to it. There’s so much out there that fans have done with fan fiction, a lot of their abilities with photoshop. It’s incredible the amount of stuff they’ve put out there. For me, and I know a lot of the other castmates as well have read up on our characters and have read these fan fiction pieces. Pretty much everything they feel about these characters we feel about them now as well. I really appreciate it.
What do you like best about playing Jasper?
Jasper is very conservative in a lot of ways, in terms of how he projects himself around humans, because he’s not comfortable around humans yet. It’s a lot of fun to play someone on the verge of breaking because you have to hold back and it’s interesting because there’s always something going on with Jasper. He’s trying to become a good vampire. He’s at a place where most of the other vampires, in terms of the Cullen family, have already gone through it and he’s kind of that weird missing link between James and Dr. Cullen, I feel.
