Jodelle Ferland tweeted out the results of her Easter egg painting. She made a Hillywood egg as seen above. You can check out the rest of her collection here including eggs that look like pineapples and watermelons.
“MM: (Laughs) Okay, thanks, that makes me feel a bit better. Now, straight to it; tell me about your experience working on Eclipse. That set that shoot must have been incredible?
JK: It was absolutely amazing, I was so shocked when I found out I got the part. Oh my gosh, I couldn’t believe I got to be a part of this amazing series of movies. On set it was so unreal seeing all the actors who you forget are real people because you’re so used to seeing them on posters and in magazines everyday. But they were all such nice people and so down to Earth.
MM: Once you got the role of Bree, did you have any idea just how coveted that character was and how much people wanted to be a part of the film?
JK: Wow, if everybody wanted it as badly as I did then a lot of people were disappointed. I wanted it pretty badly and honestly, I didn’t think I would get it. I try not get my hopes up, especially for something as big at that. Only the first movie had come out at that point (when I got the part) and I had just finished reading the last book and thought they were amazing, Stephenie Meyer is great writer.”

Last weekend the Official Twilight Convention came to Nashville, TN for the second time. The original line up for the weekend was totally pulled due to a change in filming for Breaking Dawn for the wolf pack as well as some last minute family obligations for Peter Facinelli. I’m sure this left the staff at Creation Entertainment scrambling for alternate guests. What they came up with was a lineup of rarely seen and brand new faces to the convention circuit.
The Vancouver Sun has several pieces out featuring Twilight actors who hail from Canada. Jodelle Ferland who played Bree has her own article.
“”Twilight has had a huge impact on my career,” Ferland says over the phone from San Francisco, where she’s completing voice-over work for her latest project, The Haunting Hour, a television series that recently filmed in Vancouver.
“I’ve been doing all sorts of publicity for Twilight and conventions, and I get to interact with the fans a lot, which is so much fun. Before Twilight, I didn’t have a lot of teen fans, and now I definitely do. Most Twilight fans are teenagers, which is pretty cool, because I get recognized a lot more now by teens rather than people who like to watch horror films.”
They also have another article up profiling Tyson Houseman, Cameron Bright, and Leah Gibson who have all been in one or more of the movies. Unfortunately they didn’t cover Dan Cudmore, Charlie Bewley, and Noel Fisher who all also have Vancouver roots.
Finally, they cover where the outdoor sets are located. You can often see these by standing on public property (AKA the sidewalk not someone’s lawn) on non-filming days.
Jodelle Ferland was recently seen in the newest music video from Sapphire. We know know how that came about:
“And the band is always eager to show fans their video. Nanaimo actress Jodelle Ferland, who has made a name for herself as Bree Tanner in the movie Twilight Saga: Eclipse, stars in the video for the song “Oh, My, What a Fine Day.” The band and Ferland were introduced after her brother Jeremey recorded violin on some Sapphire recordings.”
“BH: “How has your life changed since Eclipse?”
JF: “Well, my life has changed quite a bit, and in a lot of ways it stays the same. I’m still just, you know, a normal girl who enjoys hanging out with friends doing regular things. But, I mean I wouldn’t be here if it hadn’t been for Twilight. I’ve been doing all sorts of conventions, meeting a lot of fans. It’s just so much fun.”
BH: “Do you have any memorable moments from being on Eclipse?”
JF: “Well, I think honestly the whole movie was pretty memorable. Actually, I did have my 15th birthday on set, so that was pretty cool.”
BH: “Did you get a cake?”
JF: “Yeah I did. I had a birthday cake on set. And I mean that is pretty much every girls dream to have,” she smiles and laughs, “a birthday party on the set of Twilight. I was so happy that I got to do that. That was really fun.”

Jodelle dressed up as Katniss from the Hunger Games series, which if you haven’t read it yet you’re missing a great read. Jodelle has a series of four pictures of her as Katniss. Check them out here.
Booboo Stewart and his sisters celebrated in style. They were at the Children Affected By AIDS Foundation’s 17th Annual Dream Halloween event at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California.

Jodelle Ferland, Bree Tanner, can add another horror/thriller to her list. Case 39, co-starring Renee Zellwegger and Ian McShane, opens in October. Warning the trailer is pretty scary.
If you want even scarier clips, you can find them on Dread Central.
