Jackson Talks Jasper’s BackstorySep 2nd, 2009 | By Krystal | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News
MTV has a new interview with Jackson Rathbone, who discusses Jasper’s backstory in Eclipse!
“MTV: Cool. Will we see the scene where Jasper gets bitten?
Rathbone: Oh yeah, we have to see that. It’s going to be great. I’ve been studying up a lot on the Civil War and that era. It really was a crazy time. It was all-out war on our own turf and between countrymen. That’s terrible. It’s an interesting time to see when Jasper was actually human and what his human form was and, when he gets turned, how intense and how dark he is. Then [we’ll see] his realization of what he’s become, him finding Alice and being redeemed by love.
MTV: And is that the first time we’ll see your powers?
Rathbone: Actually, in “New Moon,” we get a little glimpse. Inside the school.”
