USA Today Twilight author Stephenie Meyer is busy in Vancouver right now as Breaking Dawn filming is underway through mid-April.
Fans, says Meyer, can expect a surprising performance when star Kristen Stewart transforms from human to vampire.
"She's created a new character. I was really impressed," says Meyer. "I've only really seen her as (the human) Bella so to have her step up and change it in the right way — she didn't have to talk to me. She knew. She knows the character so well now. She has really good instincts and, she looks amazing."
In an exclusive interview with USA TODAY's Carol Memmott coming Thursday, Meyer also shares details on the wedding gown Kristen Stewart wears in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, she dishes about Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, and Meyer talks about the creatures - some watery, some dark - she hopes to write about next. Full story tomorrow.
