Lefevre’s Ready to Fight New Moon’s Werewolves
She closed out last year’s Twilight, a parting shot as the enraged vampire “Victoria.” Wicked pissed because her fella, James (Cam Gigandet), had been torn apart by the Cullen family. Now the question is, just how much screen time is actress Rachelle Lefevre going to get in Summit’s The Twilight Saga: New Moon?
I ran into her last night at the Hollywood premiere of Adam Mason’s Blood River and pressed her for some details.
“The books are all from Bella’s point of view,” she told me. “So there are things in New Moon that get talked about and are referred to, but don’t get described. Victoria spends all of New Moon trying to get to Bella. As a result, she fights werewolves and has encounters. They’ve basically tried to show more for the film. We want to keep the love triangle going, but we’ve kept more of the dark action, vampire-y stuff to keep those fans happy.”
Lefevre added she’ll be heading up to Vancouver in mid-April and is “stoked to work with [director] Chris [Weitz]. It’s been different with him because he has tremendous respect for the fact that something has come before. He now has to pay heed to the books and what Catherine [Hardwicke] did so hard to cultivate. He’s done an amazing job of incorporating ideas almost seamlessly into what is what the fans are expecting and love.”
The Twilight Saga: New Moon opens in theaters on November 20th.
