Vancouver Shooting Off to a Great Start

One of the great things about shooting a movie in Vancouver in August is that it makes being pelted by hail less likely. It seems like the film crews were probably able to shoot some outdoor work with Jackson Rathbone for his Jasper backstory scene.

According to Mandy who has visited a number of the movie sets, and acted as a local tour guide for us when we were in Vancouver,

“They had torn down most everything and we chatted with crew still tearing down. There were dark black screens (typically they are white and used for either blocking views or reflecting light)

I asked why they were black (perhaps it was too sunny yesterday and instead of reflecting light as the white ones do, they were absorb light?) and they told us they were not for lighting purposes at all but to block the paparzzi… wait…. how many movies are being filmed right now that would require paparzzi?


Based on the location, the conversation, and the report from Lainey on what was filmed… I conclude that this location has SERIOUS potential for having hosted Twilight Saga Eclipse filming yesterday….”

See the rest of Mandy’s write-up here.


  1. Interesting…Set stalking… The Lex giving out locations… Interesting…

      Hours after the filming was over and the crew was packing up this story was posted.

      Note it was also on public park land accessible to anyone. No trespassing or breaking of any law took place. No actors were harassed. This story does not in any way endanger our our relationship with Summit Entertainment, the actors, Little Brown, or Stephenie Meyer

        God forbid! ๐Ÿ™‚ You guys crack me up…

          You seem to be implying that we broke some law, “stalked an actor”, were giving out filming locations in advance of the filming, or were harassing to the crew. None of the above is true.

          We are responding to your implication, and letting you know in the plainest of terms that what we reported was not considered problematic by the parties it directly affects.

          • No no, I wasn’t implying that AT ALL. Malicious Mandy is a known set stalker and I was surprised to see you post this that’s all. I know you wouldn’t do anything to upset the powers that be.

            Wasn’t implying you broke the law or stalked an actor.

          • Twilight_News says:

            It’s true Mandy has been to sets, but we checked her set area activities via several channels prior to making any contact with her and covering any of her stories.

            There are people who have caused the cast and crew some serious problems such as jumping barriers, or harassing onsite personnel. There are people who have had legal action taken against them because of what they have done including restraining orders. She’s not one of them.

            Now, if she suddenly changes her tactics and goes rogue, our coverage will end in a heartbeat.

            Good Lord! What is the deal with people slamming the Lex lately for what they are posting??! Don’t like don’t read it. the Lex has a great Rep with not only Steph but with Summit as well. They never post B.S. on this site or information that is not supposed to be posted. I’m getting sick of coming to the comments page and seeing you so called fans tear these gals apart. Sell your drama somewhere else.

          • Hear Hear Sillygirl! Lex you guys rock!

  2. It’s cool to hear that Jasper will get his back story. The book Eclipse gives us so much more of Edwards family and I personally got more into the book knowing more about them. Twilight kinda made Jasper look weak all the way around and we know that to not be true. GO JASPER!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. haha im so excited for eclipse and new moon isnt even out yet! lmao (team jasper!)

    u have to admit it u guy r giving out locations but im sure the paparazzi would have found out with or with out yall

    • *head desk* 16 hours after they were done with the location and nothing was going on there. It’s like me pointing at Madison Square Garden’s back entrance and saying U2 was here yesterday.

  5. I wonder how they’ll shoot Jasper’s history, with all the horses and everything, in Vancouver. It’ll require a lot of space.

  6. LMAO I promise I am a good girl ๐Ÿ˜‰ I obey all rules and after New Moon and meeting all the cast – I am strictly interested in sets not cast this time around. The set mentioned here I only went to the day after filming and didn’t post pics until they were done tearing down… i have learned how insane things can get and plan to avoid it at all costs ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. I’m so excited for all of the flashbacks. Jasper’s in particular. I’m jumping about in excitement at the very thought
