Julia Jones, who grew up in Jamaica Plain, returned to Boston recently to promote a DVD for "Twilight," in which she plays Leah Clearwater.
Julia Jones, who grew up in JP, was in the city to promote a DVD of "The Twilight Saga — Breaking Dawn, Part I."
She made the press rounds, telling the Globe she hopes to stay in movies, though she has enjoyed her television roles, such as Dr. Kaya Montoya in the final season of "ER."
She told the Herald that Boston Latin was harder than Columbia University, and that though she lives in L.A. she'll never be a Lakers fan. Speaking of her college education, she told Improper Bostonian that her English degree has been quite useful in analyzing characters she's asked to play.
The Boston Latin grad (above), who has been in the “Twilight’’ world ever since she was cast as the only female werewolf in the franchise, told us yesterday during an interview at the Liberty Hotel that the vampire movies are still a huge part of her life, even though she finished filming both parts of “Breaking Dawn’’ last April. After this DVD release, she and the rest of the cast (including Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson) will begin to hype “Breaking Dawn - Part 2,’’ which comes out this fall. And after all these years, the fans are no less interested in her sad character, the brooding Leah Clearwater.
