Exclusive: Jackson Rathbone Speaks on Breaking Dawn Filming

by at . Comments

Life is pretty good for Jackson Rathbone these days.

The Twilight Saga star will appear on No Ordinary Family, a critically acclaimed new series on ABC. He'll also reprise his role as Jasper Hale in Breaking Dawn, which comes out in November 2011. THG spoke to the actor this week and asked him about filming the latter...

Edward on His Wedding Day

What are your thoughts on working with director Bill Condon?
I’m extremely excited. I think we’re very blessed to have a director of his level being in this film. We’ve had such amazing directors and now we have an Academy Award winner directing the last two installments. It’s lovely because I get to learn something from each director. Their style and the way they run sets. One day when I pick up a script and start directing it myself, I’ll have a lot more to learn from. I’ll be able to use, or basically steal stuff from the directors I’ve worked with.

How do you feel about filming in Louisiana?
Louisiana is my home state. I’m from Texas to a certain degree, but my mother and my father were both born and raised in Louisiana. I get to see family, so that means real Louisiana home cooking, and there’s a very important aspect that we’re bringing a lot of work into Louisiana at a very difficult time for the state. It’s been one thing after the other and it hurts me that things are the way they are but hopefully we’ll be able to bring a little ray of sunshine, which is kind of funny since it’s a vampire film.

Breaking Dawn comes out on November 18, 2011.
