Rachelle’s Puppy LoveMay 26th, 2009 | By Krystal | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News
Rachelle Lefevre shares the cover of Modern Dog Magazine with her new doggy, Honey! You can read all about her new family member, as well as what she thinks of her character, Victoria, here! Also, here is a link for the American Humane Society, if you are looking to adopt and love your own furry friend 🙂 (Thanks to the Lex for the info).
MD: How long have you had her?
RL: One month and two days. My boyfriend and I had talked about getting a dog for about a year and a half. We’re both actors and so lifestyle considerations were important. We knew it needed to be right, so that we were comfortable enough with our jobs that we had an answer for every situation. Then it was about finding the right dog. We wanted to get a rescue. That was non-negotiable. And then, about a month ago, we were driving home and we saw a sign for doggie adoptions. We went in and we were cooing over this one little dog and the guy who worked there yelled from the back: “Show them Butternut!” That was Honey’s name then. And they put her in our arms and it was just like….
RL: Done. Literally, everything stopped and my boyfriend and I looked at each other, and we were like: “Where do we sign?”
MD: You allegedly sent Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke a letter before you were cast as Victoria. Can you share its contents?
RL: The first part of the letter was how much I loved the books. I read Twilight right before my audition, and I read New Moon shortly after. So it was about why my desire to be a part of it was genuine. The second part was how Catherine had been on my wish list of directors since Thirteen and Lords of Dogtown. And lastly, it was about the character. The truth is, [Victoria] was who I felt connected to. Stephanie describes her as always on the balls of her feet, like she could pounce at any moment. She just seemed to be free and instinctive and I was attracted to that.”
