Jackson Rathbone reveals darkside info about Twilight ‘Eclipse’ movie. Jackson Rathbone who plays the crazy, always on edge, vampire Jasper Hale in Twilight,New Moon,and Eclipse movies, reveals some new darkside information about his role in the upcoming “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” movie. He talks about how we’ll get to see him bring out the darkest side of Jasper when they show a scene about his back story.
In a recent interview with the NY Post he talked about what its like playing Jasper Hale. He stated, “The thing I like about Jasper’s arc is that it’s very developed — you don’t know much about him in the first film. He’s always in pain but don’t know why, until the second film, when you realize that he’s the newest to the family and he’s basically dying of hunger. It’s very difficult to live that vampryic lifestyle. So he’s having trouble adjusting. In the third film, we get to see Jasper’s backstory – see who he used to be and why he’s having such a hard time transitioning.”
Next, he revealed that he’ll be bringing out Jasper’s darkest side in Eclipse. He said, “Yeah. We do a little segue/backstory in “Eclipse”,when he was turned during the Civil War. We get to see his more aggressive tendencies. When you’re first turned into a vampire, that’s when you’re at your most ravenous, most vicious – so you see Jasper go through that. It was a lot of fun to bring out the darker side of Jasper that he’s been holding back.”
