Alex Meraz Talks New Moon, Eclipse, and the Joy of Cliff-Diving-photo

New Moon star Alex Meraz—who plays Wolf Pack member Paul in the Twilight vampire series—sat down with Vanity Fair.com to discuss the upcoming Twilight sequel New Moon, and what it's been like to work on the third installment, Eclipse.

Read below for a few choice excerpts:

On his favorite New Moon  scene to film: "The cliff diving scene was the most fun because the whole Wolf Pack was there and we were jumping off these 50-foot scaffolding things onto an air mattress. It was pretty exciting to be able to do our own stunts."

On not using stunt doubles: "They were pushing for it, we were pushing against; we wanted to do our own stuff. We had to train for a good two days, eight hours each day just practicing jumping, making sure we were landing safely. On the day [of shooting], we were actually jumping from a green screen cliff but it was actually taller and a little bit more dangerous because there was foliage and grass on top of it—it was a little slippery. We were fine, and it was really fun."

On the difference between filming New Moon and Eclipse: "[Shooting Eclipse] was no pressure. The pressure was doing the job on the first one, trying to understand the character. On this one, I felt a little bit more comfortable with what I was doing. I already knew the cast, so it was a lot easier."
