Bill Condon, the director of the final two ‘Twilight’ installments, says Edward and Rob are far more alike in the the saga’s final chapter!

For any Twilight fans who prefer Robert Pattinson‘s off-screen persona to his portrayal of Edward Cullen get excited — Edward will be just like Rob in Breaking Dawn! The Los Angeles Times spoke with director Bill Condon who said, “Now [Rob’s] dealing with a character who’s like him. The final movie allows us to step behind the curtain of what it’s like to be a vampire. It doesn’t seem that exotic anymore; It’s trying to be more real.” Perfect!

Bill also told an amazing story about the filming of Edward and Bella’s romantic Brazilian honeymoon, and how he, Rob, and Kristen Stewart became VERY close to the cast — after they were stranded together. “It was incredible. We got caught in the middle of this huge rainstorm — I’ll remember it forever,” Bill said. “Eighty people sleeping on the floor of the set. We couldn’t leave.”

Bill also said he has been amazed by how good Rob, Kristen and the rest of the cast has been during filming. “It’s really about the passage from adolescence to adulthood, and they all seem energized by that. It’s the stuff they are all connecting to in their lives.”

So HollywoodLifers, are you even more excited to see Breaking Dawn now?
