Stewart, Lawrence eyeing same role

New York: Hollywood actresses Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence are desperately trying to bag Peyton Loftis` role in an adaptation of William Styron`s first novel – ‘Lie down in Darkness’.

"I want to play Peyton more than anything I can possibly taste or touch in my life. I want to play her so bad," Stewart told Elle magazine.

Meanwhile, Lawrence said she is obsessed with the character.

"I am obsessed with that part. I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play. If someone else gets the part, I`m afraid they won`t do it right. I`m trying to write the director... to convince him that I should be in his movie. I`ll chase him if I have to. I`ll sit outside his house," Lawrence told W magazine.

The respective agents of both the actresses were taken aback with their keeness to play the role, reports New York Post.
