Jackson Rathbone Admits: 'It's Going To Be Hard To Say Bye!' EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK!

Check out this exclusive sneak peek of Twilight hottie, Jackson Rathbone, in the Dec./Jan. issue of Zooey magazine! He opens up about his band, seeing his face on pillow cases and Twilight‘s inevitable, depressing end!

We hate thinking about it, but The Twilight Saga is rapidly nearing its end. Currently, the cast and crew are working furiously to shoot the final two movie installments of our favorite vampire epic — and the end is weighing heavily on actor Jackson Rathbone‘s mind.

“I’m excited, but also sad because we’re nearing the end,” the 25-year-old star, who plays hunky vamp Jasper Hale, says in the upcoming issue of Zooey magazine. “It’s been an incredible experience working with such a fine cast and crew over the years, and it’s going to be hard to say goodbye.”

Jackson will have extra time during the shoot in Baton Rouge, Louis. because his character is MIA for much of Breaking Dawn, but he’s already packed his schedule with extracurriculars.

“I’ll be working with my band 100 Monkeys and playing shows around the South as well as setting up other productions for the future of my new company PatchMo Entertainment,” he says of his upcoming plans. “Also, I’m setting up a record label.”

A laid back muti-talented performer, Jackson says he’s still wrapping his head around being a mega star.

“Now there are pictures of me as a blonde vampire on T-shirts and pillowcases…that took a little getting used to,” he admits. Well, it still takes us some getting used to when we see you without your Twilight ensemble of the makeup and blonde wig. We almost forgot how gorgeous you are, Jackson!

To read Jackson’s entire Q-and-A with Zooey, pick up a copy next month when the issue hits newsstands — or better yet, be one of the first five readers to tell us why you’re a Jackson Rathbone fan and we’ll send you a free copy!

I have to say that jasper was my favorite twilight character before the movies came out, when i was just reading the books. I was so worried about who they were going to cast to play him. He had to be just right. it was oh so important to me. When Jackson played Jasper he brought him to life like no one else could have. I cant imagine anyone else filling those shoes. I was an instant fan. I had to learn everything about this guy, this Jackson Rathbone, who was he? where did he come from? what were his other talents? he must have other talents? and i did learn about him. and i wasnt disappointed. He is so down to earth and humble. He is kind and generous. He is so beyond talented. and he is vercitile in his talent. He can play a 100+ year old vampire, he can play a 16 yr old kid (which he just did this week on no ordinary family). He is musically gifted and business smart. He dreams big and has the head on his shoulders to achieve those dreams. He is a great person. I admire him so much. I just really couldnt have imagined twilight without him. He has a look in his eyes that reels you in and you would believe anything he was saying. if he told you he was a bumble bee you would believe him. He has a method to his acting that is like no other. he is very talented.

Jackson’s not the only one who will be sad when it’s over! Good thing the 2nd part doesn’t come out for 2 years. :)

Jackson is amazing. He’s a great musician & actor. (His guest spot on Criminal Minds was AMAZING!! I really hope they’ll bring him back.) Plus he makes a hot & great Jasper. And he’s such a nice down to earth humble guy.

I love Jackson, he’s such a wonderful actor and musician! I’ve been a Jackson Rathbone fan since I saw him do one of his first commercial or show I guess, and I just thought he was amazing! He has something about him that lures you in, that I can’t explain. I also think he’s an inspiration to everyone and that’s also another thing why I love him!

I love Jackson because he’s multi-talented, down-to-earth and oh-so-hott ;) Jasper would not be the same without him in the role – he truly brought that character to life! =)

Being Jasper is enough! His gorgeous accent in Twilight is right up there, along with the floppy hair and adorable smile! He is so talented, an amazing musician and actor, and seems like a genuinely nice guy! Who wouldn’t love Jackson!
