If Bella has an ally, it's Ashley Greene's character Alice Cullen, Edward's adoptive sister capable of seeing visions of the future and perhaps bringing the two lovers back together. Earlier this month, the 22-year-old Florida born beauty told Us Weekly magazine how she stayed in fighting shape for the role: pilates six days a week. "I do it early in the morning. It wakes you up, and it's kind of refreshing," said Greene. "And that is basically it. Sometimes cardio. I am not a big weight person because when I do weights I build muscle mass."
Kellan Lutz plays Emmett Cullen, brother to Greene's character, Alice. In fact, the 24-year-old actor, who got his start modeling for Abercrombie & Fitch, wouldn't mind playing Alice if he were to pick another role in the "Twilight" series. "I like happy characters," Lutz recently told the San Jose Mercury News. "Life's already too depressing, so to play a depressed soul, like Edward. ... Originally my team was like, 'Read this cool script, you're going up for Edward.' I remember going back to my e-mail, seeing the role of Edward (and thinking it was) super weird. ... And then I saw Emmett and I was like, 'Who's cast as Emmett?' and no one was."
Nikki Reed, 21, plays Rosalie Hale, a member of the Cullen family who despises Bella. Something the actress despised in reality? Dying her brunette hair blond to play Rosalie in the first "Twilight" installment. "My hair fell out," she told MTV in March, during the making of "New Moon." "It took 36 hours initially to make me blond, and every other day, I was bleaching my head and my skin. This time around, we are testing out different wigs and stuff."
Canadian model Noot Seear, 26, makes her first big break into the movie industry with "New Moon," in which she plays Heidi, a member of the Volturi who provides the cult with humans to eat. In her novels, Meyer describes Heidi as a "fisher" who seduces dinner candidates with "exceptional, unforgettable" beauty in the form of never-ending legs, lush hair and violet eyes.
With a head of snake-like dreadlocks and eyes the color of blood, Edi Gathegi's character, vampire Laurent, is one of "New Moon's" most frightening. He even managed to spook the author of the "Twilight" series. "I told Stephenie Meyer that my goal would be to scare every 14-year-old girl, and she looked at me and said 'Edi, you're so sweet and you have such a little baby face, no one is going to be scared of you at all,'" Gathegi told Radar Online in September. "Then she saw the movie and the dailies said, 'OK Edi, you scared me!' And I said 'That means a lot coming from you,' especially since she told me I wasn't even going to be able to be scary!"
