While we have likely all seen the final Eclipse trailer by now, we wanted to also share the short interview Oprah did with Dakota leading up to the trailer premiere on Friday’s episode.
Dakota joined Oprah via Skype from Los Angeles to help introduce the trailer and talked about her role in the film, her upcoming high school prom, staying grounded, and more.
“I think in five years from now, to say I was a part of this phenomenon will be really great,” said the 16-year-old actress, fighting through a cold and raspy voice.
After being a huge fan of the books and the first movie, Fanning spoke about her wish to take on any role in the rest of the series. She ended up being cast as Volturi vampire Jane, a role that started in “New Moon” and continues in “Eclipse.”
“I was just so honored that they wanted me to be a part of it,” Fanning said. “And the character that they asked me to play, Jane, is just such a great character to play. She’s kind of evil and the costumes are amazing and the makeup was amazing. To get to have the blood-red eyes was so cool and something I was really looking forward to.”
