Dakota Fanning one of the stars of the upcoming vampire film The Twilight Saga: New Moon has revealed that getting to wear red contact lenses was one of the highlights of her latest role.
The film is the second instalment of Stephanie Meyer"s Twilight series where romance between mortals and vampires flourishes. Fanning plays Jane a brutal and manipulative Volturi guard who can use her mind to torture others.
In an interview with MoviesOnline, Fanning revealed that she was "really excited" about wearing the contact lenses and getting to play an evil character.
"It"s really scary. I think it makes anyone look automatically evil. But yeah, it was really fun. You get used to them after a while. You can see pretty good, but it"s still kind of weird," she said.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon is released in UK cinemas on November 20th and stars, along with Fanning, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
