Julia Jones, a 29-year-old Boston native, will have a major role in the third movie of the Twilight series, “Eclipse,” the Boston Globe reported.
Jones will be playing Leah Clearwater, the only female werewolf. Leah is even cursed with the ability to read the mind of her ex-boyfriend. Tough break, especially considering the ex is in love with someone else.
Definitely sexy, and definitely angsty. Sounds like another tween fantasy hit.
"Because Stephenie Meyer wrote the layers, you’re kind of serving something else,” Jones told the Globe. "Usually you’re looking for any clue you can in a script – usually it’s skeletal, because it’s not prose. But in this case, there’s 3,000 pages of detail.”
Jones has acting experience in a few indie flicks and a small role in “ER.” She’s also done plenty of modeling, working for the Gap, Polo Ralph Lauren, Levi’s, Macy’s and more.
The movie is set for release June 30, and until then, Jones just has to prep herself for the notoriously crazy fans. Luckily, she has her co-stars to look to.
"I really am in awe of [their] ability to handle all of that,” Jones says. "It’s their job, and they treat it as their job. For whatever reason – and Taylor is 17 years old – they understand that. They’re so committed.”
