Sam Spruell and Evan Daugherty
"I don't think I'd be able to do [a franchise] at her age. It must be quite a burden - amazing, but it might stop you from being young. At 21 we were just kicking around, being stupid, but she has to be responsible for quite a lot. It must weigh down her a lot."
He continued: "She is a very cool cat, though. She's very chilled... I think she feels grateful for those films because they catapulted her career into the stratosphere. I think any actor would be grateful for that. I think there is a burden that comes with being that famous, of course. I'm sure she feels vulnerable at times, but overall, she's incredibly grateful."
Dallas News SWATH writer, Evan Daugherty wrote his first draft in 2003, when he was still a film student at New York University. He remembers seeing Kristen Stewart in Panic Room and thinking she would be perfect for the role — if only she weren’t too young. Now he believes Stewart, who will do one last turn in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 in November, will dazzle audiences who have forgotten her feisty, pre-vampire life.
Eddie Marsan talks Kristen
The Telegraph I ask him if it felt like a metaphor for the Hollywood industry as a whole, this set of great actors (that also includes Toby Jones and This is England’s Johnny Harris) playing the dwarves, with the beautiful people playing the leads.
“Not really, not with any feeling of resentment,” he says. “First of all, Charlize [Theron, who plays the Queen with a fear of growing old] is much more than just beautiful, she’s a very accomplished actress, and she’s terrifying in the film. Kristen’s a very lovely girl, and she’s very, very conscientious. She’s one of the boys. Those separate levels disappear when you’re working together.
“I understand your metaphor but it’s just the way the business is. Making a film is like a ghost train ride. The audience sits on the train with the protagonist, and that character becomes quite neutral in a way, they almost disappear, because the story’s being seen through their eyes. My career is playing the guys who go boo, that’s what I do.” via fiercebitchstew
