In the second instalment of theTwilight franchise, we’ll be seeing much more of Ashley’s character Alice Cullen as she grows closer to her ‘brother’ Edward’s (RobertPattinson) girlfriend Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart)
She explains to Entertainmentwise, “You see the relationship between Bella and Alice and the relationship between Edward and Alice strengthen as well.
“Compared to the first film it’s a much larger part for me, so yeah I’m excited.”
Ashley also reveals that there is a strong bond between the actors off screen as well as on, with the cast regularly participating in group hang-outs to take the edge off work.
She adds, “We work long, long days and then get off and go out to eat, or go shopping together, or play music. We all kind of became this close knit family.”
And as for other extracurricular activities, Ashley has plans to improve her strength and stamina in readiness for those action scenes.
She says, “They had us do this tap class before [Twilight] so that kind of jolted my memory.
“Before the second film I’m going to take some dance classes to get back into that. Alice is a thin girl so there was a lot of cardio.”
We obviously couldn’t pass up the opportunity to ask about man-of-the-moment Robert Pattinson, but Ashley was remaining tight lipped on this one!
But she did assure us, “Oh you guys will see his beautiful face! (laughs)”
