So you’ve seen the movie. How did you feel about your song’s placement in the film?
Ryan: I was totally, totally blown away. With all film projects, especially something as secretive and big as Twilight they’re very careful with what they tell you in terms of what scene it will be in. Things change so frequently and they told me it might be in or around the wedding scene and it might be in the first love scene during the honeymoon. So when I saw it for the first time at the premiere it was insanely special. With TV and film placements you never know if your song will play for 7 seconds or if it’s going to be playing in the background from far away. There are placements that are like that and it’s still a huge honor but to be placed in a scene so special and that has no dialogue over it is such a dream come true for me.
How did you feel about the audience’s reaction?
Ryan: Oh my gosh, it couldn’t have been more amazing. I mean, the group of people at the premiere was so intense and passionate about Twilight so it couldn’t have been a better audience to see it with for the first time.
Since you didn’t see the film prior to writing the song, did you know what you wanted to write the song about?
Ryan: I watched all 3 of the previous films back-to-back and I knew from friends who had read the story where the relationships were going and obviously I knew a wedding was going to happen so I wrote the song from Edward’s perspective. I tried to imagine what that might sound like; those relationships maturing and developing. I really liked Edward’s character. I was totally Team Edward from the first film on.
