Foy, 12, agrees “it’s a little weird” how much she looks like her on-screen parents Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. “Kristen’s eyes are green just like mine. And then Rob is kind of goofy. I’m kind of goofy like Rob,” she says, curling up today at the Ritz-Carlton in skinny jeans, a plaid shirt and slim navy high-top Converse sneakers.
In the new film, Foy’s role is expanded from her brief turn in Part 1, playing a young half-bloodsucker who grows rapidly. “One hour she’ll be an infant and the next she’ll be a toddler,” says Foy, whose face was transposed onto younger body doubles through CGI.
Foy had fun on set, from riding a furry mechanical bull (meant to be Jacob the werewolf) to keeping a swear jar for her older stars and donating the proceeds to St. Jude’s hospital. “Some of them paid me in advance,” she said, laughing. Although Stewart, “did say a couple bad words, I’m not gonna lie,” Foy describes Stewart, who guards her character ferociously in the film, as a ” best friend-sister-mom all combined.”
Plus, she got some cool downtime with the cast. “I heard Kristen play her trumpet,” she says, laughing. “Rob got her a trumpet and you could hear in the hotel.”
