At a press conference, the protagonist of the saga Twilight , Stewart said she agreed to play Snow White because after reading the script she realized that it is an interesting story, different from what has been done so far, so that meant a challenge, especially because it is a film that contains many action sequences.
“What I liked about this story is that reinvents the character and from it creates a new story, it is not the typical princess fairy tale, a story more earthy, close to humans and believable characters,” said the actress.
She explained that she also had to prepare physically, because the aim is that the action scenes involved were as real as possible, ie, that a girl her age could do, and not fall into unbelief.
Kristen Stewart said that her experience in Snow White and the Huntsman does not preclude the possibility of doing another action movie, “When I choose a project I draw on the stories, I can do all kinds of movies, regardless of gender. My interest is to have something to tell. “
“I was very close to the Mexican culture since I grew up in Los Angeles and half of my classmates had Mexican parents, so yes, I would like to work with Mexican people. I’d love to work with Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, who is Mexican. “
The actress known for the hit Twilight also confirmed her admiration for the actress Charlize Theron, who plays the Queen Ravenna in this new version of the story of Snow White, which is characterized by darkness in the story and each one of the characters that give a twist in the story.
Meanwhile, actor Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), said that working alongside Kristen Stewart was very nice, “she is a very young woman and good actress, very professional, determined and dedicated.”
For her part, Stewart said that Sam “is a person who is always watching and studying things, besides being very sweet and determined, making it very reliable to work with him.”
