In the course of making the “Twilight” movies, Ashley Greene conquered most of her fears.
But, she says, it wasn’t easy for her. She made her film debut in the first entry of the high-profile franchise playing the perky Alice Cullen, sister to Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and best buddy to Bella Swann (Kristen Stewart).
“You know ‘Twilight’ was, essentially, my first job — and there was a lot of pressure on me,” recalls the actress, 25. “It was nerve-wracking because I didn’t know what to except from the experience or from the press or the fans. I was a real newbie.”
Four years and five “Twilight” movies later, Greene feels like she’s changed for the better.
“Now, when I go on set, I’m a lot more confident of the choices I’m making,” she says. “I have a lot more fun helping develop my character. I don’t have any more worries about delving into the work and meeting with directors or co-stars and saying, ‘hey, this is what I came up with. What do you think?’
“It feels more like an artistic process to me than it did before. I think before there was just a lot of paranoia and caution and fear.”
Fear is a subject that’s been on Greene’s mind a lot lately thanks to “The Apparition,” her latest supernatural thriller and the first that finds her in the starring role.
In the movie, Greene and Sebastian Stan star as a young couple who believe their new house is haunted. They quickly discover the apparition responsible for wrecking all the havoc was uncorked during a university parapsychology experiment gone awry.


What makes the ghostly presence so terrifying is that it feeds on the fears of Greene and Stan and torments them no matter where they go. The couples’ only hope for salvation is a supernatural expert played by Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” series).
Just as “Twilight” isn’t your run-of-the-mill vampire drama, “The Apparition” was conceived as a ghost story with a realistic twist. Greene compares the chiller (opening Aug. 24) to the spookfests “The Strangers” and “Poltergeist” for its ability to get under your skin — and stay there.
“The film is a supernatural thriller that really keeps you guessing until the end,” she says. “The scares are built through suspense and a fear of the unknown, rather than with blood or gore.”
“The Apparition” gave Greener the opportunity to showcase a number of emotions.
“I (had to act) vulnerable and sad and hurt, and strong,” the actress told Cinematical in a recent interview. “It’s not a horror film; we want it to be elevated and scary along the lines of ‘Poltergeist,’ so I definitely didn’t want (my character) to be one of those scared, dumb girls in a horror movie. So we all worked together, it’s been a huge collaboration in making these characters really smart.”
Unlike the “Twilight” movies, “The Apparition” allowed Greene to create a character and then quickly move on to her next role, which turned out to be a supporting part in the still-unscheduled comedy “Butter” with Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Garner.
“It was so nice to play a character for three months and put everything you had into it and then give it up and go run off to a whole other character and a whole other world,” she says. “It makes my job seem fresh and exciting. There’s never a dull moment “
Growing up in Jacksonville, Fla., Greene dabbled in modeling until she was told that she wasn’t tall enough at 5’5” to make it in the big time. After taking a few acting classes, she became fascinated with the profession. She graduated from high-school early and moved to Los Angeles when she was just 17 years old.
“Part of me thought I knew it all at 17,” she says. “I didn’t really grasp the reality of the acting business. I knew I was passionate about it. I knew it was what I wanted to do and what I was going to do. There was no second option. I didn’t think, ‘What if this doesn’t happen?’
“I wasn’t ever terrified about not making it. Going home was never an option.”
Greene admits her parents were not quite so confident.
“When I moved to L.A, they said, ‘We’ll let you chase your dreams.’ They knew I was responsible enough. But they said if nothing happened for a year, I had to come home and finish up college.
But every time they’d say, ‘Now, it’s time to come home,’ I’d book an episode on a TV show.
“They were sort of tapping on my back again when ‘Twilight’ happened and changed the rest of my life.”
Green was cast as Alice Cullen in “Twilight” back in 2008. She reprised the role in the 2009 sequel “ New Moon” as well 2010’s “Eclipse” and 2011’s “Breaking Dawn Part 1.”
In November, the final chapter in the “Twilight” saga will hit movie screens when “Breaking Dawn Part 2” is released. In the finale, Greene will got a lot of screen time when she and Jackson Rathbone (who plays Jasper) team up to help save the life of Renesmee, Edward and Bella’s half-vampire, half-human baby.
Now that Alice is in the rearview mirror, Greene says the role remains the one that’s nearest and dearest to her heart.
“Alice is such a beautiful character,” says Greene. “When I first got the role, I went back to the (Stephenie Meyers) books, and I found out all I could about Alice. All the little details really helped me, like she was put in a mental hospital by her parents because she had these visions.
“I also researched the vampire world but the Cullens are probably the least vampiric vampire to date. We’re trying so hard to be human-like.”
Greene also drew on some of her own memories of growing up in Jacksonville. “I’m extremely close to my family, just like Alice is,” she says. “I have the same kind of feeling of love and loyalty that she has. That made her so easy to relate to.”
