  • Due to the efforts of Rio Filme they realized that Rio is a very vibrant place, and they decided that the city would be used. They wanted to include the real authentic culture and flavor of Brazil that’s why they filmed in the Lapa section
  • They didn’t want to persay used the most known locations
  • Ilse Esme will be filmed in Mamanguá in Paraty, on the southern coast of Rio, where the team moves today.

Some fans from Foforks tried to get the casts’ autographs. They missed Rob and Kristen, but they were able to get Stephenie Meyer.

Another fan on FoForks ended up having her father used as an extra in the Lapa filming while she watched because she was too young. It’s a cute story. Use Google translate to figure it out.
