Kristen Stewart admitted she was nervous about playing the vampire version of Bella in the final "Twilight" film, but it ultimately didn't show on screen.
Yahoo! Movies has an exclusive clip from the forthcoming Blu-ray/DVD/digital download of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," available March 2 (see below). And it offers details on how Stewart made her transformation from human to the gorgeously undead.

Stewart, Robert Pattinson (Edward) and others closely involved with the series' big screen finale also spoke to Yahoo! Movies when the film came out. They offered up even more detail on the changes the 22-year-old actress underwent to portray that pitch perfect "Twilight" vampire.
"I got to feel what it was like to be completely covered by makeup and hair and contacts," Stewart said. "I was like [to the 'Twilight' vampire actors], 'Oh, maybe you guys do have a point there. It is difficult.'"
Pattinson, a "Twilight" vampire veteran, indicated he coached Stewart a bit, recalling telling her (half-jokingly), "Listen, I'll tell you how a vampire moves!" He continued the joke… "And you're going to mess up the whole equilibrium of the whole series if you do it differently!"
"The transformation from a girl to a woman... It made me go, 'Wow, this girl is talented,'" Peter Facinelli, who plays Carlisle, said of Stewart.
"Twilight" creator Stephenie Meyer, known for being shy, admitted she was moved to break out of her shell a bit when she saw Stewart's first on-camera attempt at playing vampire Bella: "She knocked it out. We were doing dances."
Director Bill Condon contended special effects weren't the reason for Stewart's striking change. "That was her hair… but it was more, you know, I gotta say, it was Kristen. It's the way she held herself," he said. "It's a movie full of effects, but what you're responding to is the best effect which is an actor."
Stewart admitted she was intimidated to take on her new vampire role because, "They're supposed to be so beautiful that you can barely stand to look at them. I was like, 'Oh god. How the hell do we do that?'" But it was something else that got her even more rattled. "The one thing I was actually really nervous about was her voice. In the book it's described as wind chimes -- just this magnificent sound."
