SDCC interviewed Kristen and Taylor about their Comic Con and New Moon experience. Is it just us, or do they give better answers when it’s one-on-one and there isn’t a video camera on?
“Q: So, how’s your Comic-Con experience been?
Taylor: It’s very similar to last year. It’s just that we were expecting it, this time. Last year, we didn’t know what we were getting ourselves into. This time, we brought ear plugs.
Q: How does it feel to be working on such a popular film with such a huge fan base?
Kristen: It feels good. There’s nothing bad. Trying to describe what it feels like is so funny. Everyone feels like we’re nervous about the pressure and having approval, but this art form is so subjective, anyway. People say, “I love this book. I’m obsessed with it.” And, we can say, “Well yeah, me too.’ Everything is better, if you’re on some sort of common ground. It’s like fire. There’s nothing better than sharing passion. This is so far out of our scope of what’s going on in our head, when we’re shooting a movie. It was strange having fans so close, but like Chris Weisz said, it’s like doing theater when they stand up and clap after every take, and sit there very quietly organized, in little rows, and try not to disturb us while we’re all in character. It’s a little bit more pressure, but at the same time it was motivating.”
