The RingCon Report: Edi Gathegi and Christian Serratos

RingCon is an annual convention in Germany that is a fantasy convention.  It has stars appear from movies like The Lord of the Rings, Twilight, and other fantasy based films/projects.

This year Edi Gathegi and Christian Serratos were in attendance. The German site, Forks Bloodbank, has written up a report.

“Edi stated: It happens very rarely for an actor to be part of such a successful movie and it’s definitely a blessing that all these doors are opening up ’cause you’re part of this franchise. It’s great and I want to relate to Kyle’s words, I’m in Germany, get to meet friends and Twilight fans. Twilight fans are amongst the best fans ever. They develop a passion for the story and support us. Everyone tells you that they are addicted to the books and love them and that they read through them in two days.” Christian’s private live hasn’t really changed since Twilight. “I still have the same friends but it’s obvious how great it is to be here and meet all the great fans!” It’s the first visit to Germany for the three of them and they all talk about how much they like it here.”

Behind the Scenes: Seeing Double

The German Twilight site Forks Bloodbank had the opportunity to interview the body doubles of both Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. They have even been kind enough to translate their interview into English for us. You just have to scroll all teh way down to see it.

“Sundown over Montepulciano and Piazza San Francesca. It’s getting colder, darker and a stormy breeze is blowing over the city. Red flags for the St. Marcus Day celebration are fluttering in the storm. What an environment to end our trip to Montepulciano with an unexpected highlight: Azzurra Russo and Alan Cappelli, body doubles of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson for the “New Moon”-Shoot in Italy, have agreed to do an interview with us. A little later than expected they’re arriving at our Montepulciano headquarter, Bistro E Lucevan e Stelle. We’re immediately forgiving their delay as we’re hearing of shooting schedules starting around 5am with make-up and dressing, just as the stars’ working days. It’s already around 9pm now and we’re not their last appointment. The production company, temporarily based in Montepulciano’s Fortezza is hosting a party.

It’s “Twilight-Mania” here in the city and it has suddenly approached the actors’ doubles, too. They’re not even seated yet when fans start arriving out of nowhere asking them for autographs and pictures. It seems like they would never be able to join our table and order a Caffe Latte but they finally did. “

Red Flags Fly Over Montepulciano

It seems like all of Europe is heading to Montepulciano. We’ve heard from two different Italian sites, Swedish fans, French fans, and now it’s Germany’s turn. Members of the German site Forks Bloodbank are in Montepulciano and they grabbed some fantastic photos.

The whole town is being decked out for St. Marcus Day. The main square where they are putting the finishing touches on the new fountain got the royal treatment, and connecting alleyways (you can picture Bella running down them screaming “Edward!”) are covered too.
