From Radar Online:
Filming for Eclipse, the third installment in the Twilight Saga is almost complete, but have you forgotten about New Moon? Neither did we! The sequel to Twilight introduces fans to the royal vampire family, the Volturi, and we joined New Moon star Justine Wachsberger at a photo shoot were she exclusively told RadarOnline.com about her role as Gianna in the movie. However, we don’t have any spoilers for you since Justine hasn’t seen the movie yet. “I can’t reveal my scene, but it’s pretty true to the book, they didn’t really change anything,” she told us as she had her hair and makeup done for a glamorous photo shoot.
Justine is in a pivotal scene in the movie with Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, and she told us that having Rob go from his real British accent to his faux American accent wasn’t difficult on the set. “I like him with his British accent,” she said. So does everyone else, including his co-star and rumored love interest Kristen Stewart. “She was actually really funny,” Justine told us about working with Kristen, who she said was one of her favorite people on set. “She does have that side to her where she’s kind of shy, but at the same time she’s pretty funny.”
While some of the cast have become recognizable household names, that recognition hasn’t happened quite yet for Justine. The first day she went to the set she told us she had a problem with security. “They thought I was a fan,” she said. “Security arrived all around and said this is a closed set, you can’t be on set.” Luckily for her she was able to convince them she was in fact in the movie, and was able to start work!
The University of Southern California graduate, who also starred in Sorority Row, revealed to RadarOnline.com what she did with her New Moon paycheck – “It paid for my acting classes.”
Fans can see Justine as Gianna when New Moon hits theaters on November 20.

Dread Central has a new interview with actress Justine Wachsberger who will play Gianna in ‘New Moon’.
Throughout the Twilight stories, the Volturi play an essential part to the Bella/Edward story – and in a world where humans are not supposed to be aware that vampires exist, Gianna is one character that proves to be the exception.
“I actually liked the books but wasn’t a crazy fan of Twilight when I got the role of Gianna,” explained Wachsberger. “I just knew though that I would be lucky to be part of such a huge franchise because I know what these stories mean to the fans.”
Wachsberger added, “Gianna was a really interesting character to portray for me. She’s human and has a lot going for her but decides to work for the vampires. You don’t really know much about her motivations and that adds a lot of mystery to her, which I really loved.”
In terms of future projects, Wachsberger is keeping her options open and looking at expanding her resume beyond genre films. However, the actress hints that she’d definitely love to return to the world of the Twilight vampires and may get the opportunity.
“I know there’s been some talk about having the Volturi spin off into its own film separate from the Twilight series, and I think that would be really cool. I think Gianna definitely has her own story to tell,” Wachsberger said.
