Keeping up with Julia Jones

Actress Julia Jones, who grew up in Jamaica Plain, was back in Boston yesterday to promote the release of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1’’ DVD, which technically comes out at midnight.
The Boston Latin grad (above), who has been in the “Twilight’’ world ever since she was cast as the only female werewolf in the franchise, told us yesterday during an interview at the Liberty Hotel that the vampire movies are still a huge part of her life, even though she finished filming both parts of “Breaking Dawn’’ last April. After this DVD release, she and the rest of the cast (including Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson) will begin to hype “Breaking Dawn - Part 2,’’ which comes out this fall. And after all these years, the fans are no less interested in her sad character, the brooding Leah Clearwater.
“Leah fans are kind of emotional,’’ Jones said, wistfully. “I’ve definitely been hugged by crying girls.’’
Of course, Jones has made some time for other projects since “Breaking Dawn’’ wrapped. She made two indie movies - “Winter in the Blood,’’ in which she costars with fellow “Twilight’’ werewolf Chase Spencer, and a comedy called “Missed Connections,’’ which features Sting’s daughter, Mickey Sumner. Jones also just filmed an episode of the TV show “In Plain Sight,’’ in which she’ll play a cop. She said that as much as she loved the experience - and her work on “ER’’ years ago - her hope is to stick to films. And another goal? “I’ve got to catch my breath,’’ she said, with a laugh. Jones had plans to relax at last night’s Lakers-Celtics game.
