SLIDESHOW: ‘Twilight’ stars walk Dallas red carpet

Twilight fans, also known as “Twi-hards,” are getting antsy with the release of “Breaking Dawn: Part 1” only a week away.

 Twilight stars Ashley Greene (Alice), Jackson Rathbone (Jasper), Nikki Reed (Rosalie) and Charlie Bewley (Demetri), along with soundtrack artist Christina Perri, hit the red carpet in Dallas to promote the upcoming film.

The Daily Campus got a chance to ask the cast members for the inside scoop on the upcoming movie and their plans after the “Twilight Saga” comes to a finish.

The wedding between Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) is the most anticipated scene in the movie and the cast shared their thoughts on the big day.

“My favorite part was the wedding reception. I got to take my girl, Alice, out to the dance floor and twirl her around. That was a lot of fun for me,” Rathbone, who plays the southern vampire Jasper, said.

His girl, Alice, played by Ashley Greene, agreed with him.

“I’m really excited for fans to see the wedding scene. It’s something that we all worked really hard on,” she said.

“I like scenes where we’re all together as a family. I think there are really interesting dynamics at play. Alice and Jasper do a little dance number as well. The scene turned out so beautiful.”

Charlie Bewley, who plays the evil vampire Demetri, describes the movie as “absolutely lovely.”

Nikki Reed, who plays the always-beautiful Rosalie, agreed.

“I just saw [the movie] for the first time the day before yesterday,” she said. “I hope the fans are going to be happy. No. I know they will be happy.”

Soon the “Twilight Saga” will come to end, but that doesn’t mean that Twi-hard fans won’t ever see their favorite actors faces again.

Greene is currently pursuing her dream of always wanting to be a model by becoming the new face of DKNY.

However, she hopes to continue acting.

“It’s really fun. I’m looking forward to working with them, but my heart will always be in acting,” she said.

Reed just tied the knot to Paul McDonald, former “American Idol” contestant.

Reed has only one thing she’s focusing on right now and that’s writing.

“No kids for a while. I’m going to focus on writing,” she said. “I just co-wrote my first song with my husband. I’m also developing TV show stuff right now.”

Rathbone hates free time and is throwing himself into a myriad of projects any chance he gets.

“I’m going to go on tour with my band, 100 Monkeys. We’re leaving Nov. 26, and we’re going to be touring all over Europe,” he said.

But that is not all.

Instead of watching the television or movie screen for him, look at the computer screen, or more specifically, Facebook.

“I’ve actually set up my own production company about a year and a half ago and I’ve been producing a lot and acting a lot as well,” Rathbone said.

“I actually have a new show out on Facebook, Facebook’s first show, a web series called ‘Aim High.'”

“It’s got this really unique personal integration software. If you log in from your own Facebook account, it puts you in the show. It’s really fun.”

Luckily for fans and the cast, they still have “Breaking Dawn: Part 1” and “Breaking Dawn: Part 2” before the saga comes to an end.

“Breaking Dawn: Part 1” comes out in theaters everywhere Nov. 18.
