Diane Kruger and Jake Abel accompanied Stephenie Meyer to her THR shoot for being one of the ‘Most Powerful Authors of 2012’. In the interview, Diane and Jake spoke about playing a part in Stephenie’s next movie, ‘The Host’.
Diane first talks about her character in ‘The Host’, saying, “The Seeker is very interesting because on paper, she’s portrayed as the bad guy, but the judge is still out whether or not she really is the bad guy. My character has more possibilities still to come [in future sequels]. Especially with the human aspect.”
She adds that she was a huge fan of Twilight so she was excited to be a part of The Host, saying, “I think you have to live under a rock these days to not know the whole Twilight Saga. I have to admit, even though it’s not my age group, I was quite obsessed with Twilight. I had not read The Host, but I was very excited to be a part of the project.”
Jake also talks about how Stephenie didn’t let anything slip regarding ‘The Host’ sequels, saying, “She’s a steel trap. We wondered if maybe the things we created on set would influence her. She had mentioned that watching us bring it to life had given her ideas and the things we’ve done with each character has given her ideas of where they go, and that’s really interesting — I think — for both of us to be influencing each other in this streamlined way.”
