Seraphyn’s movie connection

This story is sort of one of those six degrees of separation type of things. rather than have me explain it, I think it’s best left in Seraphyn’s own words.

So, I’m helping out the Borders in Tallahasee with their Breaking Dawn pre-release events, one of which is a series of book discussions. Today we held the first one and had a great turnout! There was even a very vocal and wonderful Twilight guy! About halfway through the discussion, I was very surprised to see another guy join us. He picked up a copy of Twilight, pulled up a chair, and listened very attentively. We continued going through the book chapter by chapter and I eventually brought up the movie and the similarities and differences there were going to be between the two when the latecomer finally spoke up.

"My little brother is playing Laurent in that," he commented.

After a moment of stunned silence, there was a whole lot of screeching. :D

This guy who just happened to be in the right store on the right day at the right time and just happened to overhear our discussion group was Edi Gathegi’s older brother. He was incredibly nice and very interested in the whole Twilight phenomenon. He wanted to know what we thought of the book and was fascinated by the groups obsession with the stories. He has yet to read any of the books, but he said he’s heard nothing but good things from Edi about both the series and the movie. He was also kind enough to let us take a picture with him! I don’t think the poor guy knew what he was getting into when he told us who he was!

 

Just goes to show that you never know what might happen! And, if anyone is interested in participating in next week’s New Moon discussion, e-mail me at phyn.sera@gmail.com for details! No promises of random famous people, though. ;)

Its day 7 of our count down till the release of the first chapter of Breaking dawn in the Special Edition of Eclipse.  Today we are featuring a theory from our Breaking Dawn Theories thread by:

When/if Bella turns,  in twilight and new moon and eclipse there are scenes Bella cant stand the smell of blood. I wonder, if maybe either she is going to have extremely highened sense of smell for blood (as one of her talents) or she is going to be repulsed away from blood as a vampire.

What do you think Twilight fans, will Bella’s obversion to blood come into play when/if she is turned?  What do you think sher special ability might be if she gets her wish?  Will she even have one?

I think there will be two- count them, two- wars in Breaking Dawn.  War One: The Volturi versus the Cullens. War Two: Cullens versus Werewolves.

 

What do you think Twilight fans, will there be one war much less two?  Who will be on whose side?  Who will be victorious?

Charlie should definitely find out. As someone said earlier, I think his life will be at stake and then someone will save him (vampire or werewolf?) and the whole truth will come out.

 

What do you think Twilight fans, will Charlie finally discover the truth?  Does Charlie have a right to the truth?  Will his life be in peril? 

Gil Birmingham interview

We had the honor to interview Gil Birmingham cast as Billy Black in the up coming film Twilight.

Some Highlights include:

"It’s really about the look AND the chemistry.  It’s nice when you audition and capture moments of magic."

"That’s funny. Who’s the real Chief here? Or the real Billy? Billy Burke is such an open personality that playing best friends just came naturally. And Taylor is the kind of young man that any father would be proud to have as a son."

We are grateful Gil was able to take a moment out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions for us.  Read more of what this wonderful actor had to say here

I don’t think that there is anything keeping Stephenie from picking up right after the end of Eclipse, Chapter 27 – Needs.

 

What do you think Twilight fans, where will chapter one start?  Right where she left off?  Later perhaps?  What are your guesses for the opening scene?
