Alice and Jasper’s dance at Bella and Edward’s wedding required a lot of rehersal

But one stunt that was challenging to rehearse and shoot was actually one that even mere mortals can do. Fans of Twilight will recall that in Breaking Dawn – Part 1, Alice Cullen and her husband, Jasper Hale, share a dance at Bella and Edward’s wedding. Though the dance isn’t long, it is challenging and intricate. It also proved to be potentially dangerous.

When the cast of Twilight signed up to play their respective roles, none of them were expecting a risk of head injury. However, being in the action-packed movies certainly had its fair share of challenges. Because so many of the actors portray supernatural beings, there were a lot of logistics to work out. While movie magic was utilized to create some of the more otherworldly moments, the actors also had stunts to perform as well.

Rather than use stunt doubles, many members of the Twilight cast chose to perform their own stunts. Taylor Lautner, for example, spent months working on climbing up the side of a building and catapulting into Bella’s bedroom window. The actor, who plays Jacob Black in the films, also spent a whole day carrying Kristen Stewart when the moving chair the crew designed didn’t look great on camera.

In an interview, Ashley Greene (who plays Alice in the Twilight movies) and Jackson Rathbone (who was cast as Jasper) spoke about what it was like to film their dance. Despite the risk of injury, the on-screen couple seemed to really enjoy themselves.

The ‘Twilight’ cast members reveal how they approached the dance scene

“Yeah, it was lovely,” Rathbone shared about his famous Twilight dance. “Actually, you know, we were very much helped out by a choreographer. Paul Becker, who is just an amazing choreographer, he worked professionally for years, he’s just fantastic. And he let us play around with it. You know, I have a little bit of a swing dance background. And you know Ash here actually trusted me enough to flip her, so we did. We went with it. We went with something exciting.”

While the number was certainly exciting, Greene admitted that she had some reservations when they first started rehearsing. “I remember the first time we were doing it I was like ‘Are we sure about this?’” the Twilight star recalled. However, Rathbone was sure to reassure her, despite narrowly escaping head injury a time or two.
