Exciting Line-Up Nashville Twilight Convention 2011

Due to lots of changing filming schedules up in Vancouver that were adjusted due to weather issues, and some actor personal issues, the Nashville Twilight Convention had to change which actors were appearing. In the end, there’s a unique and never seen before line up!

Appearing for the first time in the USA at a Twilight Convention are:

Leah Gibson-(Nettie Eclipse)

Patrick Brennan-(Liam Breaking Dawn)

Guri Weinberg-(Stefan Breaking Dawn)

They also have the return of  two actors to Nashville. They appeared last year in the middle of a freak ice storm that lasted several days, and were a huge hit as they rolled with the punches. They both put on impromptu performances to entertain fans when other actors couldn’t get into town due to closed airports. They both definitely won themselves some fans that day!:

Gil Birmingham

Charlie Bewley

And there are two actors making their Nashville debut:

Jodelle Ferland

Nikki Reed–this is a great opportunity because Nikki doesn’t do a lot of conventions.

There are still tickets available at the door. you can get a day pass for $25 or under. Full information here.

Pending how heavily twitter is being utilized for vital earthquake information we will be live tweeting the event or providing a summary the next day. We need to play this by ear. Look for Lori (Alphie) and Shelley (Something Blue) who will be there.

Photos of Breaking Dawn Costumes From The Official Twilight Tour

Hot off the set in Vancouver, the Official Twilight Tour by Creation Entertainment was displaying several costumes from the original Twilight movie and newer ones from Breaking Dawn.  We have some higher resolution photos in the works, but here are some IPhone snaps to tide you over. Creation Entertainment will have them at various shows throughout the year.

Tinsel Korey and Julia Jones at The Official Twilight Convention Los Angeles 2011

We are currently at the Official Twilight convention put on by Creation Entertainment. Usually we live tweet the event, but we haven’t been able to get a signal in the ballroom. We took notes and here are the highlights of what Tinsel and Julia spoke about yesterday. Tickets are still available despite a story in the LA Times that incorrectly stated that there weren’t. Booboo Stewart, Bronson Pelltier, Kiowa Gordon, and Jodelle Ferland are on board today and Peter Facinelli swings by on Sunday.

  • If possible to switch, Tinsel wouldn’t have wanted to switch to the part of Leah because she likes the sweet honesty about Emily
  • Tinsel’s inspiration at writing The Letter was a friend who was facing domestic violence issues. She hopes to make a music video fro the song and is talking with The Hillywood Show about possibly producing it.
  • Breaking Dawn changed Tinsel in that she thinks she has acquired a larger fanbase. She’s always worked steadily as an actress and hopes she will continue to do so. She recently started a tumblr site for advice to aspiring actors.
  • Tinsel when she reads the books is Team Edward in the movies she is Team Jacob
  • Tinsel’s pet peeves are annoying people on airlines, people who stand up as soon as the plane lands. She recently had to deal with people who wouldn’t get out of their seats to let her get to a window seat they just moved their feet slightly. She said, “Mam, I’m sorry but I don’t want to crawl over your husband.”
  • Tinsel doesn’t like meeting celebrities because she once met a famous person she looked up to and the person was a jerk and it ruined her image of that person. She doesn’t want her images dashed again. She did recently meet Michelle Rodriguez at a red carpet event and was slightly star struck by her.
  • In honor of Tinsel’s birthday, the girls who run the Tinsel Korey online website gave Tinsel a cake that got a little mushed because “the cake had a fight with the GPS in the car”/ They also collected online and raised $250 for St. Mary’s Foodbank in Arizona which is a cause dear to Tinsel’s heart. Tinsel choked up upon receiving the gift. (see video on St. Mary’s below) Tinsel then told the audience about how she got involved in St, Mary’s and that her other favorite charities are anything involving Native American/First Nations kids in the performing arts.
  • Julia Jones came right from the set and had a bit of a scratchy throat, but she was still really excited for her Q&A

    • Julia feels like shooting the Twilight movies has given her great insight into guys. She feels like she has been backstage at a boys club and hanging with the wolfpack has demystified guys for her a bit.
    • Cee-Lo and Forget You is her favorite song right now
    • Julia didn’t read the books until after she got the role. She just skimmed them before her audition because there wasn’t time. Her friends were big fans and gave her details. Then afterwards she read all the books in a week and was obsessed and now she’s a superfan.
    • Her worst day filming ever was what she calls Black Friday which was the campfire scene in Eclipse. It was pouring rain all night long. they shot from 10:00pm to 6:00am. The tarps only covered three people at a time and they dripped. They would get full and then dump tons of water. Alex Meraz got hit twice by a huge waterfall of water. It was really miserable.
    • Julia got star struck by Geoffrey Rush when she met him after a broadway play.
    • Julia is really gullible and Alex Meraz is always getting her to believe stupid things.
    • Julia loves moviemaking but would be a photojournalist if not into acting.
    • Julia says if you want to get into acting treat it like any other profession and take classes and study

    Official Twilight Convention Los Angeles Kicks Off Today


    Laura will be live tweeting the official Twilight convention in Los Angeles this weekend. There was an unusual description from the LA Times’ things to do section about the convention:

    “The Official Twilight Convention: Finally, somebody starts paying attention to little Stephenie Meyer’s fantasies of repressed teen desire filtered through the prism of bloodthirsty but sort of ethical vampires. There will be something for every fanatic at this conference celebrating Meyer’s series of books and movies, including a panel on bloodsucker lexicon, a karaoke party with Tinsel Korey and Julia Jones, and a vampire ball where you should be able to strut in your finest velvet and high collar.”

    “Bloodsucker Lexicon”, well that’s a first. It never ceases to amaze us how five years into Twilight the press still doesn’t get it. Anyway, those in the know, know it’s a lot of fun. Look for our tweets later today, or come on down on a day pass. A day pass costs roughly what a trip tot he movies does once you add in the popcorn and soda. All the cast have been on set at this point so look for some non-spoilery behind the scenes details.

    Where Can You See The Twilight Stars in 2011

    We have been getting a ton of questions from people asking where they can see the stars from Twilight.  A sure fire bet in the USA is the Creation Entertainment Official Twilight Tour. They just updated their 2011 schedule, so check it out and see if it arrives at a city near you!

    If we had to bet money, we’d guess that there will be some Breaking Dawn actor presence at Comic Con, but that is not official yet. It’s just a guess based on past experience.

    If you are from outside the USA check out the following events:

    Italy

    Cruise and Italy

    Spain

    Australia

    Malaysia

    UK

    We’ve published this before (last time about a year ago) It gives you advice on the whole convention scene: what to look for, what your expectations should be, etc. [Read more...]
