"It's The End Of An Era" Rob & Bill Condon Interview

The LA Times got an exclusive interview with Robert Pattinson and Bill Condon to get a little inside info on Breaking Dawn. Interviewers caught Rob for a quick second backstage at the Golden Globes to ask him his thoughts on Breaking Dawn coming to an end and how is shooting going.

“It’s been really hard shooting both films at the same time,” admitted the 24-year-old star, moments before he had run backstage to present his award with “Tron” star Olivia Wilde. “But it’s the end of an era.”

They also caught up with Bill Condon to catch his thoughts on the final installment of one of the most popular movies of all time. He was kinda mum on the details of production but did share how this movie is about growing from adolescent to an adult. Its about growth and moving to the next step in their lives. He also talked about filming in Brazil and the fun times they had with the rain.

“All the characters are moving [in this chapter]," he said. "It’s really about the passage from adolescence to adulthood, and they all seem energized by that. It’s the stuff they are all connecting to in their lives.”

As for Pattinson specifically, Condon added, “Now he’s dealing with a character who’s like him. The final movie allows us to step behind the curtain of what it’s like to be a vampire. It doesn’t seem that exotic anymore; It’s trying to be more real.”

“It was incredible. We got caught in the middle of this huge rainstorm — I’ll remember it forever,” Condon said. “Eighty people sleeping on the floor of the set. We couldn't leave.”

I remember hearing something about this rainstorm...but I am thinking Rob and Kristen were tucked away safely in their own places.

This is most likely one of the biggest films of 2011 and for 2012. Personally, I wish it could go on forever but realistically all good things must come to an end. I am very excited for everyone in this cast to see the opportunities this film opens up for them. What I am most anxious for is to see if someone like Kristen stays true to herself and keeps it up with the little films that she has been known for or if she would ever do another blockbuster like Twilight. We all know she has the acting ability to go far but will she? Taylor and Rob have already been making their way into Hollywood with big name films like Abduction and Water for Elephants. I look forward to following these guys for many years to come.

But really Stephenie could do just one more book...they still have a little youth left in them *wink wink*
