Kristen Stewart has a challenge ahead — to get past her character, Bella Swan. One of this generation’s most popular heroines, she has been in movies like 'Panic Room' (2002), 'Zathura' (2005), 'In the Land of Women' (2007), The Runaways (2010) and 'Snow White and the Huntsman' (2012). But there is no beating 'Twilight', the extremely popular saga based on the young-adult vampire romance by author Stephenie Meyer. The fiercely private Stewart, who plays the young Bella on screen, will be seen as a new vampire in 'Breaking Dawn Part II'. A victim of the paparazzi, she has been in the news for her troubled romance with on and off-screen partner, Robert Pattinson. Now that the series is coming to an end, the actress shares her relief and her favourite part:

How does it feel to close the Bella chapter?

I am so relieved; it takes a lot of patience. I lived in the Twilight world for four years now and it’s finally over. Once the story has been told, you feel like you’ve done all you can do. That said, it’s pretty easy to walk away. It’s not like it’s going anywhere. This one’s mine, forever!

Which is your favourite movie in the saga?

'Eclipse', because that is where Bella realises she can’t be right always and that she is the youngest of everybody involved. It was a kind of change in her character. But after 'Breaking Dawn 2'. I think this was my favourite installment of all. All through, my character has been a passive character, someone who remains within herself and the last instalment is when we see some vivacity in her.

One scene that was most challenging?

Playing a vampire was really difficult for me. Physically, this was more challenging than anything because even the way Bella walks into a room is different than how I walk into a room. If you think a mile a minute, you’re never going to be indecisive about anything. Everything is very pointed. I got to see everyone else’s versions of their vampires over a really long period. I liked picking and choosing what to use. Rounding her out was fun, and physically really, really challenging. Reactions to the saga are varied, with people either calling it romantic or corny. At first I didn’t like the book but when I did the movie, I began reading the book again. I understand Bella and Edward. It’s not a normal love story, it’s between a human and a vampire. It’s different.

Movies that always inspire you and why?

Working with Jodi Foster was an inspiration ('Panic Room') and my favourite movie is 'Remember Me' by Allen Coulter.

What next, after Breaking Dawn part 2?

According to the internet, I am doing 'Lie Down in Darkness' but it’s not happening yet. Hopefully it will, but other than that, nothing.

How do you unwind?

I love to read and write. It’s been a little while since I haven’t had stuff mapped out, so it’s nice. I’m in a good place to choose what films to do.

'Breaking Dawn Part II' is scheduled to release on November 23.
