“We had to do the re-shoots on [Breaking Dawn - Part 2] a few weeks ago, and it was the first time I had to wear a wig,” he said.

“I couldn't believe my last two days on Twilight they put this orange wig on my hair. [It was] like Frankenstein's monster, an amalgamation of six wigs.”

Giving himself advice, he then added: “Don't succumb to peer pressure and start wearing a wig like everybody else in this cast.”

Several of the cast and crew appeared on a panel at Comic-Con in San Diego over the weekend, during which they paid tribute to 53-year-old fan Gisela Gagliardi, who was run over and killed outside the convention centre while camping out with other 'Twilight' fans.

“Gisela will always live in our hearts and memories, and we wish her family and friends our best in this difficult time ,” said panel moderator Eric Moro.
