Jacksper reveals Eclipse Civil War deets :)

DALLAS — We don't need to have our emotions influenced to know that Jasper Hale Whitlock is one of Stephenie Meyer's greatest creations. A 166-year-old Civil War veteran whose transformation and redemption is a key theme in the later "Twilight" novels, the character has long been a fan favorite. Which made it all the more appropriate when the franchise landed Jackson Rathbone, a 24-year-old actor/musician whose affable, easygoing charm has made him equally popular in Twilight Nation.

Recently, we caught up with Jackson as he was preparing to begin work on "Eclipse," the currently filming third chapter in the blockbuster saga. What follows are some major plot revelations from the next two films — including his fight scene with Kellan Lutz, exposing Japer's powers earlier than you might think and how to kill one of David Slade's newborn vampires.

P.s. 3 sparkle points to MTV for their Texas location but, 5 to Jacksper for using his power by "... transferring it through the eyes, which are the windows to the soul — even to the soulless" <-- love that!


  1. He says we get to see Jasper's powers in New Moon at school. Hm... I wonder if that means they DID write Jasper's character as Alice and Edward's age and he'll be going to school with them at the beginning of New Moon, AND he graduates with him in Eclipse

    Oooh I hope so =) the More Jacksper the BETTER!

  2. oh yeah because hadn't emmett and rose graduated in new moon? hmm...

  3. Can't wait to see Jasper's story in Eclipse. And the training! Oh my... that'll be pure action :-)I am really looking forward to see Alice dancing around!

  4. Loved, loved, loved that last line! "... transferring it through the eyes, which are the windows to the soul — even to the soulless" That tempted me more to leave Team Edward than anyting else,lol! I'm too old to 'squeee' but hot damn Jacksper you came real close there ;)

  5. God this is great!

    Rathbone: "Oh yeah, we have to see that. It's going to be great. I've been studying up a lot on the Civil War and that era. It really was a crazy time. It was all-out war on our own turf and between countrymen. That's terrible. It's an interesting time to see when Jasper was actually human and what his human form was and, when he gets turned, how intense and how dark he is. Then [we'll see] his realization of what he's become, him finding Alice and being redeemed by love. "
