This afternoon’s entry in our annals of Breaking Dawn Superfan Week salutes is a three-for-one special! Jess, April and Ashley run KStewartNews.com, a beautifully designed hub for all of Kristen Stewart‘s interviews, photos and movie news. While they’re lucky enough to run a site that will likely have plenty more to do long after Breaking Dawn Part 2 leaves theaters, they’re serious Twilighters too. Here’s what they have to say about the franchise that launched their girl into superstardom.
TheFABlife: When did you first fall in love with Twilight?
Jess: I fell in love with the story after reading the first book. I feel in love with the films after seeing Rob and Kristen’s amazing chemistry and how well they brought Edward and Bella to life.
April: During Twilight promo, some chap named Robert Pattinson came to a Philly mall, and it was ALL over the local news — pandemonium! It piqued my interest and made me curious as to what the excitement was about. I picked up the books and have been hooked ever since. Then, I saw Kristen and Rob onscreen together, and I was a goner.
Ashley: Late January 2009 my sister and I had a hard time deciding on a movie to see and settled on Twilight. Call it love at first sight. I literally got in my car and bought New Moon immediately. Kristen and Rob hooked me.
TFL: What’s the moment you can’t wait to see in Breaking Dawn (1 or 2)?
Jess: I am gonna be captain obvious here and say the wedding, honeymoon and vampire Bella. We have been waiting all these years to see Bella as a vamp. I think Kristen is gonna kill it!
April: Don’t make me choose! I guess the honeymoon. It’ll be nice to see Mr. and Mrs. Cullen so happy.
Ashley: Honeymoon would be my first, but seeing Kristen as a crazy, protective, “tiger mom” ranks pretty high too.
TFL: How many times have you read the books? How many times have you seen the previous movies?
Jess: I’ve read the books a few times each. Watched Twilight way too many times to count, New Moon maybe four times, Eclipse (with commentary) endless amounts.
April: I can’t even count how many times I’ve read the books, but it’s been awhile. I’ve watched Twilight enough that I’m on my second DVD
Ashley: I read them several times each when I first discovered them, but it’s been a really long time now. I can’t count how many times I’ve seen Twilight. New Moon probably a good amount. Eclipse maybe handful of times, I listen to the commentary on my iPod instead.
TFL: How many times do you plan on seeing Breaking Dawn Part 1?
Jess: I usually average three visits per film.
April: I’m with Jess. Probably three times
Ashley: Three or four times, depending on who wants to see it.
TFL: What will you do after you’ve seen it that many times?
Jess: Hopefully find new things I like about it each time. Compare favorite moments. Gush like a 13-year-old girl. You know, the usual.
April: Gab with my gal pals about our favorite parts, the parts that make us awww and the parts that make us laugh inappropriately.
Ashley: Discuss everything in so much detail you would think we were solving world peace.
TFL: What will you do after the final movie is out?
Jess: It will be bittersweet to see it all end, but I will continue to support Kristen and her career and look forward to seeing what the future holds for her.
April: +1 on Jess’ answer. Can’t wait to see what the future holds in store, professionally speaking, for Kristen as well as Rob.
Ashley: In agreement with my counterparts, can’t wait to see what’s next for them.
TFL: Have you ever felt this way about any other book/movie/person/thing?
Jess: I have never been this drawn into a book series. I was pretty obsessed with Sex and the City and those characters. And I adore Brad and Angie as far as celebrities go. But I have never felt so passionate to put in the time and work I do “for” Kristen.
April: I’ve always been a huge Buffy fan, so that was my first pop-culture obsession.
Ashley: I was pretty obsessed with Hanson when I younger. Harry Potter was a big part of my life as well, but this takes the cake easily.
