Ashley Greene says the Twilight movies were a “crash course” in acting.

The star is Alice Cullen in the vampire series, the penultimate film of which is out this month. Shooting on the final instalment, Breaking Dawn – Part 2, has already wrapped and Ashley has nothing but fond memories of filming.

“To work with incredible directors is like a crash course for acting. And we [the cast] have all become a family so it has been nice, personally and as an actor, to learn and grow with these people, and to have someone to relate to who is in the same circumstance,” she explained.

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Kellan Lutz all appear in the films too. None of them had any idea how popular the series would be, and it’s something they have all struggled with.

“The amount of attention and insanity surrounding those films changed all our lives,” Ashley told Company magazine. “But it happened to us together and it’s had a tremendous effect on how close we are now.”
