Ashley Greene fought for role

Ashley Greene

Ashley Greene fought "tooth and nail" to avoid "standing there screaming" in her new horror movie.

The actress stars in The Apparition, which tells the story of a series of frightening events that occur in a young couple's home. Despite the scary content, Ashley wanted to steer clear of the stereotypical horror movie character.

"I have fought, tooth and nail, to not have this girl running around, screaming and crying the whole time. If it is screaming, it's not the typical, 'Look at me, standing there screaming.' It's more of that noise that's just forced out of your body," she told Collider.

"It's not the typical scream. I think silence is sometimes a lot scarier than someone screaming."

Ashley is famed for playing Alice Cullen in the hugely successful vampire franchise Twilight. The 25-year-old star would like to explore a number of other genres during her career.

"Yeah. I have a very different story than most people, about how things happened for me. It happened very quickly, and so I'm getting all of this recognition and I really haven't done a lot," she said.

"There are so many things that I haven't done yet. I love film. I love everything about the adventure of it, and I want to do it all. I'm like a kid in a candy shop, right now. I want to do everything I haven't done yet. I think I've covered drama. I definitely want to do a comedy. I think a musical would be really fun. I 'm itching to do an action film."
