Blast: The Eclipse Cast Hit Twilight Nights

Around the country the Eclipse cast appeared at various Twilight night events sponsored by Summit and Moviefone. Usually in outdoor settings, you could watch Twilight and New Moon back-to-back for free. Here is some of that coverage.

San Diego featured Peter Facinelli and Christian Serratos with hosts Jenna Bush, Quddus, and Myriam from MSN Superfan.

Boston had Booboo Stewat and Tinsel Korey who braved flight cancellations to get there!

The Lexicon’s own Nena Cullen was in Salt Lake City to see Charlie Bewley and Julia Jones. Nena writes, “So this was an impromptu- spur of the moment decision, to go down to the park hauling my 2 month old with me. When I got there I realized my camera didn’t have a lot of charge, so I had to take  pictures with no flash to at least last me for a few pictures. As you well know, both Julia and Charley were awesome. They hugged and signed almost everybody there…only about 200-300 people showed up. It was at this huge park…they seemed to be having a great time.Summit gave some keychains, buttons, pens and make up, posters and some other stuff for free. Moviephone had a picture booth, popcorn stand, face painting stand and a twimom/Alex’s lemonade stand. Movies started around 8pm.

Fansite Friday interviews Jodelle Ferland

For our final Fansite Friday, we have Bree Tanner herself, Jodelle Ferland. Take note that we did this interview before The Second Short Life of Bree Tanner was released.

Jodelle Ferland:

Q: We all know that you had a chance to read the ‘Eclipse’ novella, but we were wondering if you got to sit down with Stephenie and go over your character?

Jodelle: I did get to read the book first, which was great. I did talk to Stephenie, but most of the talking I did with David Slade, the director. He sat down and talked with me about the character and the book. So I did most of that with David Slade but I did talk to Stephenie about it too.

Q: You’ve known about the book for a long time, much longer than us. Now that it’s officially been announced and the release date is out there, do you feel different about your character? More excited, more nervous?

Jodelle: When I first got to read the book, I didn’t know what was going to happen with it and I don’t think that Stephenie did either. So when I found out that it was coming out as it’s own book I was really excited. Even though I already knew about it, I was just so excited that my character was getting her own book! I can’t wait for it to come out. [Read more...]

Vancouver Sun Features Jodelle Ferland Post Bree Tanner Release

The Vancouver Sun features local actress Jodelle Ferland about her Bree Tanner experience.

“And with the mad fan frenzy for everything Twilight, you have to wonder whether the producers have already started thinking of a Bree movie. Any such plans would likely follow the filming this fall of the fourth book Breaking Dawn.

Another Twilight-related movie after Breaking Dawn? A slam-dunk, right Jodelle?

“That would be amazing if the they decided to make a movie about the Bree Tanner book, but I don’t know what their plans are.”

Chicago Sun Times interview young cast members

The Chicago Sun Times interviewed Jodelle Ferland, Boo Boo Stewart, and Tyson Houseman recently about being added to the cast for Eclipse.  (Even though Tyson was seen in New Moon, he didn’t really get to be a part of the action until Eclipse.)  The Sun Times got target audience members to actually supply the questions.

Q. Have you read the whole Twilight series?

JODELLE: I’ve read all four of the books, and I absolutely love them. I really, really like Stephenie’s writing.

TYSON: I read them all after I got the part.

BOOBOO: I thought I might get an audition for the film, so I started reading the books. … I wanted to go in extremely prepared, you know?

New Jodelle Ferland interview

Just days before The Second Short Life of Bree tanner hits bookshelves, Dream Magazine has a new interview with Jodelle Ferland. She talks about her co-stars and the thrill of being cast in Eclipse. Read the whole interview here.

Q: Have you read the TWILIGHT SAGA books before you found out about ECLIPSE?

A: I think I was just finishing the BREAKING DAWN book when I got called for the Bree audition. I loved the series, it was absolutely fantastic. I’m a total bookworm, and I just can’t put a book down once I start reading it. Especially a good book. So I didn’t get much sleep while I was reading the TWILIGHT series. I can honestly read until 5 o’clock in the morning if I’m really into the book. Probably later, if I wasn’t afraid that I’d fall asleep while eating breakfast.

Another Image of Jodelle Ferland as Bree

Once again, thanks to the folks over at Creation Entertainment, we have another image of Jodelle Ferland as Bree Tanner.  What’s new about this photos is that it looks like an actual still image from the film and not a publicity shot like the last one was.  Sow what do you think?  Do her eyes look more like a newborn vamp in this picture?

First Image of Jodelle Ferland as a Vamp

I was looking at the list of celebrities on tap for the Official Twilight Convention in Vancouver that is coming up on May 14-16 and found that Jodelle Ferland, who hasn’t yet attended a Twilight convention, has been added to the appearance schedule.  But what is even more exciting is that Creation Entertainment is running a photo of Jodelle that we at the Lexicon have never seen before – and trust us when we say that we’ve seen just about everything!  Since Creation Entertainment is running the photo, and given that her eyes are red, we have to assume that this is a publicity shot of Jodelle as Bree.

Stylistically, this shot is very similar to that of the other vampires.   We’re curious, though, as to what Jodelle is wearing around her neck!  We hope that in days to come the full image will be available and we can see her necklace in full.  Perhaps the necklace will have meaning to the character of Bree and is something that will be mentioned in The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner.

How did the Twilight Stars Spend Easter/Passover?

Here’s a bit of a retrospective of what various Twilight stars did over Easter.

beachPeter Facinelli took his family on a well deserved rest to an undisclosed tropical location. Peter Tweeted, “The Easter Bunny left Carribean quarters in their plastic eggs My daughter asked what the exchange rate was.”

Here’s to Peter and family having great quality time together.
