Co-star Kellan Lutz also broke away from the New Moon set to take a walk downtown.
Thursday night, the whole New Moon cast – including Kristen Stewart, Rachelle Lefevre and Robert Pattinson – headed to Gotham Steakhouse for dinner.
As as the cast was leaving, Jackson, 24, revealed to paparazzi that filming for New Moon will be starting earlier than anticipated. He shared, “[Rehearsals] They’re going great, they’re going great. We’re actually going to start filming on Monday, so be sure to check it out.”
