On the phone from Vancouver, the Twilight series author reveals that she was very hands-on when it came to casting the lead roles in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of her 2008 sci-fi book "The Host", which includes Max Irons as Jared Howe, Jake Abel as Ian O'Shea and Saoirse Ronan as Melanie Stryder and her alien host. But Meyer initially thought the Irish actress wasn't old enough for the part.
