"It was tough at first. Jacob has been going for one thing this entire franchise, and that is Bella. When he realizes that isn't happening, he doesn't handle it very well at all. But he grows up a lot in this one, he matures, and I think the fans are going to be really excited to see an emotional roller coaster for everyone in this film." -- Taylor Lautner
