Jackson Rathbone, who plays vampire Jasper Hale in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, told reporters that he and the cast of the upcoming sequel are feeling the weight of the franchise’s popularity more. Oh, and he really does get hurled into a piano.
“We have a bigger budget, and we have a little bit more pressure to keep that [indie] feeling going,” Rathbone said in a group interview Tuesday in Philadelphia. “But the nice thing is that we are delving more into the story now of New Moon. But I will say that Twilight is my favorite, because it takes you into this realm, from reality into this fantasy reality, and it makes that fantasy more real. As the films progress, you get deeper into the mythical world that we are establishing, with the werewolves and what the actual vampire society and legacy is with the Volturi.”
