The Cullen actors talk about their favorite Twilight Saga film to work on

Collider talked with Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed, Kellan Lutz, Peter Facinelli and Elizabeth Reaser while at Comic Con this last week, and asked them about which of the films was their favorite to work on. I love their answers!

Looking back over the franchise, what film was your favorite to do and why?

REASER: I think the first one. I had the most fun in that.

GREENE: We had no idea what we were doing.

REASER: We had no idea what we were getting into. We thought we were just doing this little vampire movie in Portland. There was just a lot of silliness, a lot of hijinks and bad behavior.

JACKSON RATHBONE: It was fun. The film was everybody coming together and being together in the room for the first time. Doing those epically long Cullen family shoots would take two days to do.

PETER FACINELLI: Because everyone had coverage. You might have like three lines, but there were 10 people, so they would cover each person. Three lines could take 12 or 15 hours, but it was fun because everybody was together. As hard as it was to shoot those scenes, I always enjoyed when we were all together.

LUTZ: Well, the first one felt like we were 17, before turning to 18, so we could get in trouble. Before all the craziness happened and Twilight became what it was, I just remember Jackson and Peter and I had some good times. We still did later, but we had some monitoring come on afterwards.

REASER: For the first movie, they had the girls in one hotel and the boys in another hotel. Then, we found out that they actually preferred their hotel, so we moved over there and all hell broke loose.

FACINELLI: We had a lot of rehearsals for the original Twilight to get the family to learn each other and experience each other, so we could all be like a family. We spent a lot of time together.

    I don't think they are the actors for that movie. Maybe the directors, but where is Kristen Stewart? (Bella) ?

    They are the Cullen family.  Bella was not a Cullen and the article says Cullen actors.  How can you not tell who they are?  The directors, really?
