The ladies over at The Pattinson POst have a great interview with Janelle Froehlich who plays Yvette in the French Coven. Also see our interview below where we caught Melissa Rosenberg off guard and got her to talk about this new coven.
In our exclusive interview below, she talks about a variety of things, including what it was like to work with Robert Pattinson. She also shares a bit about the French Coven that she is part of with actor Amadou Ly. Neither of their characters were in the original Stephenie Meyer book, but were created for Breaking Dawn Part 2.
Pattinson Post: What led you to audition for Breaking Dawn? How did you find out you got the role?
Janelle Froehlich: This is an interesting story. I had just graduated with my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy, and accepted a job offer to work as a therapist at a high school in the San Francisco Bay Area. Now, throughout graduate school in Los Angeles, I was also auditioning and working as an actor. But, I decided to move and pursue my career as a therapist – until I got the phone call. Two weeks before I was supposed to start my job, my acting manager called and asked me, “Do you still want to take that job in San Francisco? You’ve been booked on Breaking Dawn.” Needless to say, I hopped on a plane for filming in Baton Rouge, LA. In fact, my supervisor at the high school (where I would have worked) was a big fan of The Twilight Saga, and encouraged me to go for it!
