Alice (on "Twilight" author, Stephenie Meyer): Stephenie Meyer was so pleasant. She really is a sweet and talented woman I was a little nervous to meet her, but the second we sat down and began chattering away, I was completely comfortable. I'm very excited I was able to meet her!
Ashley (on her "Twilight" co-star, Jackson Rathbone): Jackson Rathbone is an awesome guy! Such a fun person to be around. And I think there is a bit of chemistry with everyone in the cast. We all get along great. We all hang out and goof off together.
Ashley (On the fight training she recieved for the film "Twilight"): The first two weeks I was in Oregon was strict training, and there was no shooting. There was a lot of baseball, because there's a baseball scene. Then we did wire-work, and a lot of stuff to get us into the feeling of moving like a vampire. There were a couple of dance and movement classes.
Ashley (On her "Twilight" cast): The cast is amazing! Everyone pretty much "clicks" which is very nice considering we are family now.
Ashley (On her "Twilight" character, Alice): Playing Alice is pretty ideal as well. I get to do everything!
Ashley (On roles she would like in the future): I really would love to do a piece like Julia Roberts or Charlize Theron in Erin Brockovich or North Country. They were both so amazing and so inspiring. I would love to touch someone in the way they're performances touched me. Obviously that will be when I play 30 and not 16 so I have time.
Ashley (On auditioning for "Twilight"): The auditioning process was really long for me. A couple of months. And I don't really know the people considered. I try not to focus on that stuff. And I knew about a month before I flew out.
