After playing Bella Swan for over four years, Kristen Stewart is looking at the end of "The Twilight Saga" feeling good. The actress talked to OTRC.com in a recent interview about the final film in the franchise, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2,' the evolution of Bella Swan and working with Mackenzie Foy, the child actress that plays Bella's daughter Renesmee. "I think that it would be terrible to walk away from an experience like this not, not feeling that closure be satisfying. No, I feel good. I feel good not worrying about Bella anymore," Stewart told OTRC.com when asked about the ending of the franchise. "I think we did everything we can for the characters." The first part of "Breaking Dawn" was released in November 2011 and shows Bella and Edward wed and conceive a daughter. The birth nearly kills Bella, who is subsequently turned into a vampire. In the final installment, which is set for release on Nov. 16, Bella and Edward fight the Volturi to protect their daughter Renesmee. "You're not in the Forks that we've all come to know anymore. You are living in a completely different world now," Stewart said about the pace of the movie. "I mean, Bella's always been human, it's been a very grounding factor and now that she's not it's like ... it is at first it's kind of hard to keep up because the tone has changed completely. Literally from the first second of the movie." As for her character, despite what viewers may perceive as a huge jump for Bella turning from human to vampire, Stewart said for her, the change was more gradual. "It was never ... it never felt like a huge jump. Even though the way it's described as this big change it's sort just the next step. Everything really made sense," Stewart said. "Everything that makes her great as a vampire was there in her as a human it's just sort of a more, like you say, an amplified version." For the final film, child actress Mackenzie Foy in the key role of Renesmee, the daughter of Bella and her husband Edward Cullen. Since Renesmee was conceived when Bella was still a human, Renesmee is only half-vampire but the evil Volturi clan of vampires believe she is a child that was made into a vampire, which the Voluri kill because the child vampires cannot be controlled. Stewart was very fond of Foy and said the 11-year-old actress is "amazing." "She's like one of the coolest chicks I ever met. She's like so solid, you just can't rock that girl, which is really awesome," Stewart added. "Also not the type of kid actor that is -- sorry -- incredibly annoying. She's so not an actor because she wants to be the center of attention, she wants to be a director. Like she's awesome. She really lends herself to it. She's not a faker." Stewart also spoke fondly of Bill Condon, the director of the final two "Twilight" films. "The reason it comes to a close in such a satisfying way is because he does ... you can see his love for it is so evident," she said. Stewart also teased the following about the epic fight scene in the film: "It doesn't completely stray from the book either. There's a part of the book you probably skim over but there is this little detail that makes it very faithful to the book actually." "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" is slated for release on November 16. Check out the trailer below.
