Collider: Interview with Taylor LautnerSep 19th, 2011 | By Stefanie | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News
How difficult is it for you to let all of the Twilight stuff go, leaving the cast?
LAUTNER: It’s different. Whenever we would finish filming any of the other movies, we would be bummed, but we would know that it was just a matter of a few months before we would be back filming another one. So when we wrapped these last two, it was tough for us because we had been playing these characters for so long and spending so much time together for so long. It was a little emotional. But I mean the good news is, we will be able to promote them together for the next year and a half.
How was the last day of shooting?
LAUTNER: It was emotional, for sure. My last day of shooting, I was by myself, so that was kind of sad. But, my second to last day, I did a scene with me, Rob [Pattinson] and Kristen [Stewart].
How long was the shoot?
LAUTNER: Seven months because we filmed both parts together. It was five months in Baton Rouge, and then two months in Vancouver. It was a long time. It was like a 110-day shoot. At first, when I saw the schedule, I was like, “Woah, I am going to be tired, by the end of that.” But, it wasn’t that bad. We have a lot of fun with it and I enjoyed both of the cities we were in. It was a good time.
