When I asked you guys which scene you were most excited to see, hundreds of your wrote in “The meadow!” — and told me how lame it was that I didn’t even list it as a choice in the poll.
You were right. It was lame.
So when I spoke with “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke on Monday, I got her to talk about what she went through to get that pivotal scene right, (in two words: a lot!), how she got Edward (Robert Pattinson) to dazzle in the sun of that meadow, and what moments in the book she had to chop from the movie. (This is the first of a two-part interview. Check back for the second half later this week.)
