The Twilight saga has finally wound down with Breaking Dawn Part Two, the fifth and final film in the series.

After the traumatic birth of her baby, Bella, played by Kristin Stewart, is now a vampire.

“I think the coolest thing about vampire Bella for me is that I got to play her as a human for so long and the special parts of each vampire are always informed by the great things that they were as a human and so I got to walk in those shoes,” she said. “Everything made total sense to me, I waited so long, once I finally got it it was like, so comfortable, I couldn’t wait.”

The lead trio have become worldwide stars in the four years since the Twilight saga first hit the screens.

Real life couple Kristin Stewart and Robert Pattinson have rarely been out of the gossip columns, especially after her affair.

Pattinson said: “It’s strange to think suddenly in the last movie of the series, (to) have such a massive shift and what Edward has to be concerned about, because he’s spent four movies basically thinking about one thing, he’s thinking about Bella the entire time, and then suddenly thinking ‘Oh, I actually have the ability to change my life completely.’ So it was quite exciting and it was definitely something new to play with.”

The werewolf Jacob faces a new challenge as his character bonds with the child, ending the angst-ridden love-triangle of earlier episodes.

Taylor Lautner, who plays the werewolf said: “It was more enjoyable because I’ve done the triangle thing for so long, it was great to play a new side to Jacob and in this one he really does have a huge weight lifted off his shoulders and he kind of knows what his meaning is now and it wasn’t that so he’s able to look at the two of them and say ‘you guys look great together and I’m happy just the way I am’ which is nice seeing from Jacob.”

Producers are hoping the send off to the series will be at least as successful as the saga thus far. The first Breaking Dawn smashed all box office records, when it scooped the biggest ever opening for an American film in the UK.
