Liz Reaser’s Top 5 Filming Moments from Eclipse

Liz-Peter-NikkiEW has a list of Elizabeth Reaser’s top five moments while filming Eclipse.  She addressed working with Dakota Fanning, Bryce Dallas Howard, Xavier Samuel, and Jodelle Ferland as well as the teaming up between the Cullen family and the wolf pack.  But she had this to say about her on screen hubby:

“There was an action scene I did with Peter [Facinelli] where we were in a battle. We fight together — because we’re a team and he’s so protective he wouldn’t let me fight by myself — it’s pretty intense. We both do some intensely violent things, which was pretty scary. And I didn’t enjoy that stuff. I realized I don’t like pretending to hit people because it kind of makes me feel bad, like what if I hit them [for real]? What if I get nervous? And so the director was like, ‘You’re not getting mad.’ He tried to piss me off and it worked. [Laughs] He started yelling things at me off-camera to genuinely make me mad. So then I got really mad and he was like, ‘Yea!’ It was a weird thing but a great tactic on his part.”

Read the whole list at EW.


  1. It is going to be really weird to see Esme fighting!! I know she would to protect her family. But she’s so sweet & kind!!

  2. If Wilma Flintstone was a vampire, she’d be Esme. Call me crazy, but for whatever reason, ever since I saw the movies and read the books, that’s the appeal she has to me.

    Except that Wilma Flintstone is a bit more dominant and really gets ticked off at Fred very often.

  3. Jennifer says

    What she says about not liking to fight sounds just like something Esme would say. It’s funny how the actors’ personalities seem to mimic their characters’.

  4. Cute article. I can not wait to see the Cullens kick some butt! I agree with her on if you mess with one of her children you better run!
