We hate thinking about it, but The Twilight Saga is rapidly nearing its end. Currently, the cast and crew are working furiously to shoot the final two movie installments of our favorite vampire epic — and the end is weighing heavily on actor Jackson Rathbone’s mind.
“I’m excited, but also sad because we’re nearing the end,” the 25-year-old star, who plays hunky vamp Jasper Hale, says in the upcoming issue of Zooey magazine. “It’s been an incredible experience working with such a fine cast and crew over the years, and it’s going to be hard to say goodbye.”
Jackson will have extra time during the shoot in Baton Rouge, Louis. because his character is MIA for much of Breaking Dawn, but he’s already packed his schedule with extracurriculars.
“I’ll be working with my band 100 Monkeys and playing shows around the South as well as setting up other productions for the future of my new company PatchMo Entertainment,” he says of his upcoming plans. “Also, I’m setting up a record label.”
A laid back muti-talented performer, Jackson says he’s still wrapping his head around being a mega star.
“Now there are pictures of me as a blonde vampire on T-shirts and pillowcases…that took a little getting used to,” he admits. Well, it still takes us some getting used to when we see you without your Twilight ensemble of the makeup and blonde wig. We almost forgot how gorgeous you are, Jackson!
