Nikki Reed and Jackson Rathbone attended the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 in Copenhagen, Denmark on Thursday (November 15). The actors did a press conference and received bouquets of flowers.
Nikki and her husband Paul McDonald sing All I’ve Ever Needed – a tune that is part of the Twilight soundtrack.
The actress told MTV, “I went to [director] Bill Condon a year ago and said, ‘Is there any chance if we write something will you have a listen and think about it?’ He said, ‘Absolutely, I’ll listen to whatever you send,’ and we did. We turned something in, and I know everyone is going to assume that just because I’m in the movies that it was a given [we would be on the soundtrack], but we fought so hard, Jackson (Rathbone) knows. He listened to many versions and stages of the song. We waited eight months to hear. It was back and forth.”
Reed said she wanted the song to be produced as a tribute to the fans, not because she needed to be featured on the album or the song featured in the film.
“I wanted it for the fans. I didn’t care where it ended up in the film, if it was on the soundtrack or the DVD, I just wanted the fans to know how I connected with these films. The fans, they get very creative too. They write and do fan fiction, so it sort of goes past what the story is on the screen. I feel those same things, I just wanted them to see that.”
