Kellan Lutz: 'Breaking Dawn' wedding was 'very tough to film'
Fans have been waiting to see the big wedding between Edward Cullen and Bella Swan play out on film before the chemistry between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart lit up the big screen in the first "Twilight Saga" movie in 2008.
Kellan Lutz, who stars in the franchise films as Emmett Cullen, told OnTheRedCarpet.com co-host Rachel Smith at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 21, that the wedding was "very tough to film."
"I mean it's beautiful. The set designers did an amazing job. But the weather wasn't too cooperative and it was really cold and rainy," he said. Parts of the movie were shot on location in Vancouver, Canada. "In the end ... I think the fans are really going to love [it] and I get teary-eyed quite a bit, seeing it all take place."
Speaking of weddings, Lutz's co-star Nikki Reed is gearing up to walk down the aisle soon. The actress announced her engagement to former "American Idol" contestant Paul McDonald in June after the two had been dating for three months.
"I'm so happy for her. You can see the true love," Lutz said about Reed's relationship with McDonald. "It's amazing, especially living in the industry that we do. I'm just really happy for her."
"Breaking Dawn" is directed by Bill Condon and the first part is set to be released on November 18, 2011. The second installment is scheduled to hit theaters on Nov. 16, 2012.
