They all look stunning!
According to Maggie Grace there was definitely cast bonding on the set of Breaking Dawn
According to Contact Music:
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn stars Casey Labow, Maggie Grace, Julia Jones and Mia Maestro have become best friends on and off the set – and they regularly hook up for coven-like dinner parties.
The foursome clicked on the set of the final Twilight movies – and now former Lost star Grace hopes they’ll be friends for life.
She says, “It was a gaggle of fun girls and we still have these coven reunions, as geeky as that sounds. We did little field trips during the shoot, and we still have dinner parties when we’re all in L.A.”
Weirdest fan request: To howl. And no, they don’t, often suggesting a younger cast member will, though.
The franchise’s appeal:“We have fans all the way from 6 to 66 and what I think it is, is it brings you back to that first time of falling in love. Those emotions are extremely heightened, and I think that holds a really dear memory for a lot of people and I think that’s why it’s resonated with such a wide audience,” the actress said.
His co-star, however, quipped, “I think it also has a lot to do with Taylor’s abs and Rob’s hair.”
The final film: Neither has seen it. “I think they’re still in post-production at the moment. I don’t think they even have a soundtrack,” Korey said.
Staying in shape: As Sam, Spencer has to appear shirtless in many scenes, alongside Taylor Lautner, no less.
“It meant a lot of hard work, it actually kind of sucked. It meant hitting the gym hard, watching what I ate, a pretty good strict diet,” and mustering the discipline to do it and maintain it.
“It’s very hard to do. Some people are born with it, some people use other substances to enhance, but when you have to do it naturally, it sucks.” And when shooting was over, he treated himself to Johnny Rocket milk shakes — “all of them, chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, Oreo.”
When they knew “Twilight” was a sensation: It came for Korey in a bookstore when she turned around and saw the face of Bronson Pelletierwho plays Jared, a member of the wolf pack.”I looked and it was all this wolf pack merchandise, and it was so surreal because I know them and I know we’re in a movie but seeing that merchandise for it, this is just a completely different level than I thought.”
Spencer, on the other hand, recalls, “During ‘New Moon,’ they were shuttling us to the gym, and I think we were on our way back from the gym and there were these girls camped out in our hotel lobby, they wanted to meet us. And they stayed there for a week straight. The hotel staff had to kick them out.”

Julia is the Boston are morning shows to talk about being Leah and sticking with her Jamaica Plains roots .
She also talked to Boston.com
The Boston Latin grad, who has been in the “Twilight” world ever since she was cast as the only female werewolf in the franchise, told us during an interview at the Liberty Hotel that the vampire movies are a still a huge part of her life, even though she finished filming both parts of “Breaking Dawn” last April. After this DVD release, she and the rest of the cast (including Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson) will begin to hype “Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” which comes out this fall. And after all these years, the fans are no less interested in her sad character, the brooding Leah Clearwater.
“Leah fans are kind of emotional,” Jones said, wistfully. “I’ve definitely been hugged by crying girls.”
Tinsel Korey, Gil Birmingham and Julia Jones all hit the morning talk show circiut today.
We have covered the Quileuete Nation’s ongoing struggle to regain traditional tribal lands to enable them to build out of a Tsunami zone before. Now Julia Jones is lending her voice to the cause.
From the Quileute Nation:
In December 2010, Julia Jones was the “guest of honor” at the annual “Cherish our Children” event in La Push. The fundraiser benefits children from both the Forks and La Push areas during the holiday season. Her appearance resulted in a record setting year for the event.
This year, Julia once again shows her support of the real wolves of La Push by releasing a PSA on behalf of the tribe’s quest to move to higher ground.
Julia references the Quileute Tsunami legislation S636 (the Senate bill) in the PSA. The bill in the House of Reprsentatives is HR1162.
“The Quileute Tribe is so grateful to Julia for taking the time out of her busy schedule to film this PSA”, states Chairwoman Bonita Cleveland.
We are grateful to all the actors who have sent out messages of encouragement and support regarding our legislation. Tinsel Korey, Gil Birmingham, Kiowa Gordan and Alex Meraz have all reached out to the fans and we are so humbled by their efforts. Chaske Spenser submitted a statement to the Senate Commission on Indian Affairs when he appeared before the committee this past year. The fan sites have assisted with getting the message out that our tribe is in desperate need to move to higher ground and time is running out.”
We’ve all seen footage from Thailand and Japan where people have mere moments to react to a Tsunami. Please help by contacting your representatives to let them know how important this legislation is. It could literally be a matter of life or death for the children who attend the tribal school.
