Kirsten Prout: Jackson Rathbone is an Absolute Southern Gentleman

Kirsten Prout‘s name may only pop into your mind when associated with Kyle XY or The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. But that’s all about to change.

The 18-year-old actress opened up to Inspire mag about working with Jackson Rathbone, Elektra and her thrilling new film. Check it:

On working with Jackson Rathbone: “He was so wonderful, an absolute southern gentleman. Sitting down at lunch alone, my first day meeting anyone, I was thrilled when he just plopped down next to me and spent the afternoon getting to know me. He’s so talented, and such a dedicated artist. Jackson is an extremely friendly and authentic person.”

On her most memorable film, so far: “To be completely honest, Elektra was something I will always be grateful for. Jennifer [Garner] made the experience unforgettable, the stunt training was unbelievable, and my directors, producers, and crew were so supportive. I think the aftermath of Twilight has also been an eye opener in terms of figuring out the dynamics of this industry.”

On what’s coming up next: “I am so excited about the film [My Super Psycho Sweet 16: Part 2] and am currently shooting in Atlanta. It’s the sequel to the slasher thriller My Super Psycho Sweet 16, and I definitely get to delve into a darker character, Alex Bell. All I can say is that if there is a third film, my character hands will get increasingly bloody. It’s such a tremendously talented cast, and to have a lead role that is so wonderfully written really gives me something to sink my teeth into. I love working for MTV, Jacob Gentry is such a talented director, and I sincerely believe that this film is going to make audiences fall in love with its characters as much as it did last October!”

    I don’t remember her in Eclipse, what character did she play?

  • Jay

    Karina —- Kirsten is Lucy In Eclipse.. When Jasper tells Bella about his past as a human and noticing women and offering his aid… (Aka Maria and her two henchmen- Nettie and Lucy) She’s only shown for a few seconds.. before Maria is told to change him since Nettie cant stop once she’s started “feeding” – thanks to a rushed backstory.
