As promised earlier, here is a multi-fansite interview with Julia Jones, “Leah“, in The Twilight Saga movies, including Breaking Dawn Part I.
Julia gives fans some amazing insight into the character, Leah, and differences in her filming experience for Breaking Dawn in comparison to the previous movies. Read the full interview HERE. And in case you missed it, read the full interview with Booboo Stewart HERE.
Q: Leah generally is perceived as such an angry character by fans, but I think we can all agree that there’s also a level of sadness to her. And so I was just curious as to how you played the difference between the anger and the sadness that she might feel to give her a little bit more depth.
Julia: That’s a good question. It’s very Breaking Dawn appropriate. I think one of the big differences that you see in Leah from Eclipse to Breaking Dawn is that she’s able to shed a lot of her anger and express her sadness which is sort of like a step in the direction towards healing. Jacob really feels like he’s given her an opportunity to do that by letting her stay and be in his pack. And it sort of through that and through their relationship that Leah is able to shed some of the anger and get the weight of the things that were making her sad off of her chest.
