Peter Facinelli, Liz Reaser, Nikki Reed Talk Twilight Highs and Lows With NBC

Did you ever have those moments like, ‘What the hell did I get myself into?’ Like, ‘This is way bigger than I ever imagined when I signed that contract.’

Facinelli: I think none of us knew that it was going to be this big. But speaking for myself, I was very appreciative that it became this big. To be part of something that becomes a global phenomenon is rare. As an actor, you’ll have things that certain people attach themselves to and appreciate, but that’s something that’s seen on such a global scale. It’s really like a cultural phenomenon. I hope to have that again in a movie in my career. As an actor I do movies because I want them to be seen by the masses. And this is as mass as you can get.

Reed: Yeah, and there’s definitely frustrations and challenges that are part of it. I mean, that’s life, right? It’s not ever perfect. But I think when I have moments where I feel like overwhelmed by a certain scenario or, for example, there’s a paparazzi chasing me or something like that and you’re like ‘What? What has my life become? This is not who I am. This doesn’t represent me.’ But then you have to sort of remember that, like I said, these things will come and go. And they’re sort of high-class problems, which is great. And it’s going to go away.
