Reed shared details about a not-so-well-kept secret -- a scene that will appear during the end credits of the franchise's final installment "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2." "It was actually a surprise that we did for [director] Bill Condon," Reed said of the extra scene -- one that involved more than 100 people for a choreographed number set to "Sweet Dreams" by the Eurythmics. "[It was] something really fun and we did it all on our own, on our lunch break," Reed said, adding, "We came together and worked on something -- just the actors together -- to surprise our director that we love so very much." Judging by the fact that the scene made its way into the final "Twilight" installment, Condon must have been over the new moon when he saw it.

As "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" is getting ever-closer to its November 16 release date, Reed felt inclined to reminisce about how close she became with her fellow actors. "To put it really bluntly, there's been such a lack of drama amongst the cast," she said. Reed went on to talk about how she and her husband, singer-songwriter Paul McDonald (a former "American Idol" contestant), recently became the godparents of Jackson Rathbone's new son who was born in July. "I'm married and Jackson just had a baby and we have very similar lifestyles, and he does music and my husband and I do music," she explained.

"Breaking Dawn - Part 2" is supposed to mark the film franchise's end, but rumors are swirling over possible spinoffs -- perhaps even on the small screen. Is the end of "Twilight" really here? "As far as I know it is," said Reed, adding, "But listen, I'm sitting here like the rest of the fans. I'm a fan too. If they told me there's more, I'd say, 'Cool, where do I sign up?' I love these movies."
