Today, we have a sneak peek of our interviews with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner. Then, come back starting on Monday for new extended interviews with everyone from Rob, Kristen and Taylor, to the Cullen clan, to the Volturi, and even the Wolf Pack!
Come back every weekday until ‘New Moon’ premieres in theaters on Friday November 20 to see a new ET video with the cast!
“I’m allowed to tell people that I play a vampire who has just been turned,” the 14-year-old Canadian actress tells me. “In other words, I’m a newborn vampire. I’m not allowed to say the name of the character.”
So if she won’t say whether her character is Team Edward or Team Jacob, what’s her pick in real life?
It’s Team Edward all the way for Jodelle.
“I just think if maybe Jacob had been introduced first then everybody would like him better,” she said. “It just seems that since Edward was the first one to be with Bella, people want him to stay with her. So, you know, that’s the character that you start to like first! And then Jacob comes into the picture and everybody’s like, ‘Oh, no! Stay with Edward.’”
Jodelle says she’s “really, really excited to meet Robert Pattinson.” As are her friends. “Every single person I’ve told has asked me if they could come to the set,” she said, adding with a laugh, “I’ve said, ‘I’ll have to think about that.’”

ET: Are you writing for the chemistry between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart?
Melissa Rosenberg: When I wrote ‘Twilight,’ I didn’t know who was starring in it, so I wrote in a vacuum. There was some rewriting that had to be done when we knew who they were, because I had started with more of a comedic edge and it wasn’t appropriate for those actors and the tone. I lean toward the dark comedy, witness “Dexter.” So, going into ‘New Moon’ and ‘Eclipse,’ I knew who I was writing for. I knew who the characters were and what their voices were. It got even easier with ‘Eclipse.’ [Author] Stephenie Meyer’s created the character’s chemistry; and those two actors brought so much chemistry. I don’t think the movies would have been so successful without those two actors and their chemistry. ‘Twilight’ was beautifully cast.
