Audiences saw a whole new side of Ashley Greene this weekend as her '80s-set coming-of-age flick "Skateland" rolled into theaters. The 24-year-old actress will continue to keep busy during the latter part of 2011, with movies like "LOL," co-starring Miley Cyrus, and "A Warrior's Heart" slated for release. And then, of course, there's "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" hitting theaters November 18.
When we got on the phone a few months back to talk to Greene about "Skatetown," she was in the midst of final shoots for the "Twilight Saga" finale and preparing to say goodbye to the cast she's spent the last four years with.
"It's fun to go to work every day, but it's kind of bittersweet," she said. "It's sad, because I feel like it's high school or something. We've been doing it for so long."
Yet Greene considers it a boon to have worked with director Bill Condon on the final installments. "Working with Bill Condon makes it kind of the cherry on top, because he's so excited and he's incredible at what he does," she enthused.
And, lest we forget, the two-part "Breaking Dawn" will roll out over the next couple of years, giving the cast plenty of opportunities to see each other, even as stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner continue to book high-profile projects.
"For two years, we're going to have these movies coming out and press tours and all that stuff, and premieres. So the nice thing about that is that we know we are going to see each other over the next two years. It's not as hard to finish out the franchise."
No need for tearful goodbyes just yet, it seems.
