The opening dream scene in the meadow gets me every time as Bella sees herself as old with Edward. I think it is a beautiful concept as Bella (Kristen Stewart) worries about aging while her true vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson) stays forever young at seventeen, and will not turn her. It’s Bella’s birthday, and as much as she “doth” protests, everyone reminds her of the celebrating. She really doesn’t get Edward’s attitude, until her disastrous birthday party at the Cullens where she almost becomes dessert that Carlisle (Peter Facinelli) explains it all to her.
Christopher Heyerdahl, who plays the vampire Marcus Volturi in The Twilight Saga franchise, has joined the season 5 cast of HBO’s True Blood, where he will again bear vampiric fangs in a recurring role.
According to EW, Heyerdahl will be taking on the character of Dieter Braun, an ancient and incredibly powerful vampire who plays a significant part in the intelligence of the Authority we’ve heard so much about. Apparently he’s also got a special talent when it comes to torturing people.
