On going from one character to the other: “It’s interesting to go from a character that’s not superhuman [in Girlfriend] to a vampire [Jasper Hale] that is very mythical. It’s one of these things where Ive been bouncing around between all these different characters. Its fun. It gets a little confusing.”
On Jasper’s backstory: “It was just really fantastic to get to delve in there and to get to don all the Civil War regalia and whatnot. That was a pleasure. I had to wear this wool suit of a major, cavalry major. I got the big hat and everything. Hop off the horse, bow to these ladies, and then I get eaten. And then I get turned!”
On 100 Monkeys scoring a spot on the Eclipse soundtrack: “It’s been talked about, but it’s one of those things. We’re going to be kind of giving some of our songs off of our upcoming album for them to see if they want to put on Eclipse. We’d love it. [But] we’re not really pushing for it. It’s one of those things where if they want to put our song on the album, I’m not going to complain.”
