MTV gets some inside information on Kristen’s Doll Double in ‘Breaking Dawn – Part 1′
MTV talked to the Special Effects Supervisor on ‘Breaking Dawn – Part 1′ about Kristen Stewart’s Doll Double in the birthing scene.
According to John Rosengrant, the film’s animatronics and special makeup effects supervisor, the idea behind the creation of the Bella replica doll was to make the birthing/near-death scene appear as real as possible and to show Bella in her very emaciated form that Meyer describes in the book.
“It’s very hybrid, the approach,” he told MTV News. “We tried to shape the whole Bella, what she looks like emaciated and all that, but it’s also digitally augmented, and that was from the get-go, this was going to be a hybrid-type effect.”

They showed some great pictures of the doll in the Illustrated Movie Companion and there’s footage of it in the behind the scenes of the DVD.
I thought they did fantastically! It looked so real! I would have freaked out so much if I was Kristen!
