Q:You have the third "Twilight" film, "Eclipse," coming out in June. What else are you working on?
A: I wrote a movie, and we're shooting that in July, which should finish just in time to start the third season of "Nurse Jackie" [on Showtime]. Then, hopefully, we'll find out what we're doing with "Breaking Dawn" by then.
Q:Do you have any idea when "Breaking Dawn" might start filming?
Q: The "Twilight" franchise has changed directors with every film. How does that affect you as an actor?
A: I think it's more difficult for the director. They're coming in on a moving train. Everyone already has their characters created. I like working with different directors. I've done television series, like "Nurse Jackie" and "Six Feet Under," and every episode is a new director. They come in and give a new perspective on the material.
Q:After three films, has your relationship with the rest of the cast changed?
A: No. I think the only thing that has changed is more people are aware of us on the streets. When we shot "Twilight," we'd all go out to dinner, and nobody cared what we were shooting or what we were doing. Now, if we go out to dinner, we have vans of people following us, which doesn't always make for a good time. So we end up spending more of our time in our rooms, just ordering in.
