Weekend Break Down

I was away most of the week so I had some special interest pieces scheduled to post while I was away.... Upon my return you bet I made up for being away all week ;)

Here are this week's fave posts:

  • I met Nikki Reed & Elizabeth Reaser

  • I also started my "Fan Encounters" Posts which I will post daily (at most) as long as fans send in their photos and stories :) []

  • Filming This Week

  • Meet the Volturi

  • New Moon Soundtrack

  • First Photos of Robert Pattinson as Edward in Eclipse

  • Remember When I Met Zac Efron?

  • Of Course There was Much, Much More, so peak around and catch up on all the action from Malicious Mandy's Mind

    My New Boy Friend... Zac Efron... Don't tell my Daughter... The Death & Life of Charlie St. Cloud

    So I blogged recently that I met Zac Efron on the set of The Death & Life of Charlie St. Cloud. We wandered through the set and the PA said...

    "Don't scream or run at him but he is walking over here right now"

    We all look and sure enough here comes this floating ball of pretty....

    He has shorter hair than I recall from his days as "Troy" on HSM... and I have not yet seen 17 Again (though I plan too VERY VERY SOON) but he was there in the flesh in front of us...

    Now I didn't wanna go fangirl - since I am not a fan er was not - er AM NOT... um.... but I couldn't help but think of how pretty he is.... and how pretty his babies would be.... and how pretty... making babies would be ... which... nevermind...

    There was more details and also photos of the signs and set and props on That Blog

    [Fake Cemetary FYI]

    And now - finally here are some more details/photos.

    [Remember we watche dhim float towards us in shock and then it clicked to snap some pics]

    Nice Bum eh?


    yes, they aren't as stunning as they could be - we were NOT expecting Mr. Pretty Ball... er... Zac Efron to come floating towards us, but he did and we panicked...

    let's move on - next time we will see him because we want to, in fact we try to, and we shall be better prepared for it and snap a trillion photos.... *sigh*

    Here are the Pro's Pix from that same day - same set - only a short time after we left :)

    Yup - You are re-thinking the "he's so young and Disney Channel" thought aren't you? I did too!

    Take it back off - please...

    Same Outfit, Same Geese, Same sexiness...

    Ok - Now I can have sweeter dreams ;)

    Twilight Saga Eclipse films Graduation Scene

    So last night I was informed from several sources that the filming of the graduation scene in Twilight Saga Eclipse would take place at a local school.

    I was excited to hear about this Coquitlam School, since most believed all school shots would be shot at David Thompson High School.

    Twitter seemed quiet about the set, a few so-called reliable set seekers were tweeting Langley and I so I wasn't shocked when I got to set early this morning to see only a couple people there.

    I returned later and the group was still only a handful and mostly gathered at the entrance/exit to the circus.

    I chatted with the usuals and then walked over to the other side of the set where we had a clear view of the walk way that the cast and extras were walking down on their way to lunch.

    We got to see quite a few people, however, my camera was acting funny and I couldn't zoom in much. I do know some people who got zoomed in nice shots and once they are posted or emailed to me I can link you all.

    After seeing everyone break for lunch I left.

    I knew they were moving locations soon after and planned to return for that.

    There were some people who were there all day. Also VanCityAllie popped by and got some great shots.

    Billy Burke looking sexy as Charlie:

    Mystery Cast who is super-star enough to get umbrella treatment:

    For more of her photos and stories Check out her blog

    I got caught in traffic and arrived later than planned back and the set and they were just wrapping.

    The good news about that was that I could wander right through the set and snap photos. The bad news, was that I had just missed the cast leaving. I know a few people had some great encounters and shots.

    Here are photos of what was shot today (Not My Photos)

    Pop Sugar has a close up of Kristen holding her diploma - what do you think of her hair? Not a bad wig - I have already heard some complaints though - it may just have a side part to be "fancy" for grad?
    See Here

    Twilight-Gossip has some great shots from today also:

    Billy at the ceremony - ugly yellow cap & gown (which I had heard from an extra this morning she was told to wear all yellow - I still hoped the cap & Gown would have some blue!!! ugh!)

    Peter leaving set:

    Overall a good day. Saw lot's of twitter friends on set and met some new people that are super awesome.

    Kristen Stewart as Bella Cullen - New Hair

    Breaking Dawn should be 2 movies... So Says Stephenie Meyer

    Rumours have been flying for a while.... Time will tell for sure.... but it would def. make most sense to do it in two... in FACT - I suggest they take a bit of BD (mainly wedding, honeymoon) and put it in E and have E end with a cliffie of Bella and Edward on their honeymoon and looking down at Bella's growing stomache.... tee hee - I know won't happen.... but if they did it that way then BD could be one - and if not - BD MUST MUST be two :)

    Fan Encounters... Canucklehead07 Meets....

    Canucklehead07 has some fantastic photos with "The Humans" as well as a great blog post about what went down.

    My personal fave is this:
    3:55pm – I hear a loud whistle followed by an “OH MY GAWD, IT’S TWILIGHT!!” I get up from my seat quickly without being obvious to others that I heard these words. We stand in the middle of the sidewalk glaring at what yelled those words out. It was none other than OLBM (Old Lady Big Mouth, aka crazy Christine). Yes, you heard me… she screamed midday in the middle of the city. (I wonder if you’d consider this “Disturbing the peace”… can’t people get arrested for this? Seriously… I’m asking…for future references.) Next thing I knew, OLBM sprints by me with a really old man running at her side both with cameras in tow. You’re probably asking me what she was running to… Well, she was running towards NOTHING. Nothing! Running down a sidewalk panting? Um… OK lady.


    4:05pm-4:15pm – My mom notices the Twihards leave their posts. They speedwalk hurredly towards the entrance of the hotel as they turn on their cameras. I gaze in the direction they’re running towards but I don’t recognize any vampires. Disappointed, I paused mid-walk. About to turn around a girl screams “Oh, JUSTIN!” Justin? Justin Chon??? I beckon my mom with a flick of my wrist. Who else will take my photos right? It was the four ‘humans’: Anna Kendrick (Jessica), Christian Serratos (Angela), Michael Welch (Michael Newton), and Justin Chon (Eric). They all looked very different, yet just as good – if not better – in person. Every Twihard went up to the cast one-by-one and got their chance at a photo. They were all very nice. Micheal and Justin were vocally very appreciative. Anna was acting cutesy as usual. Christian was a little bit silent, not saying too much — scared of us maybe? I stepped in quickly before it was too late and got my picture. My mom took my photo… she took forever though. She pretended that she didn’t know how to zoom-in, but really she was just stalling just so she could take more photos. LOL. Too smart.

    Canucklehead07 has more photos and the whole story on her blog go see for yourself

    See my encounter with Nikki & Elizabeth here or view past blogs for other cast meetings I have been lucky to have had.

    Fansite Friday: Taylor Lautner Interview from Twilight Lexicon

    See All at Twilight Lexicon

    There is so much greatness in the interview here are my fave parts:

    Q: Did you actually get a tattoo??

    Taylor: I did not. no no no no no.

    Q: Is it henna? What did they use?? Is it a stick on?

    Taylor: Yeah, just like normal tattoos like you get from the 25 cent machine. It’s obviously a little bit more than 25 cents. Yeah just stick the towel over top and water- works pretty nice.

    Q: With Twilight, Kristen was underage and it presented a big factor in filming. Since you are under 18 has that affected filming in any way?

    Taylor: No I can work the same hours as anybody else. I can work adult hours. I tested out of high school, and I am in college right now. So I can work all night- all day all night (laughs)

    Q: Are there any – not- crazy fan experiences? Are the Canadian fans less aggressive than the US fans?

    Taylor: What I’ve found is all Twilight fans are the same anywhere you go. I’ve been all over the world in Australia, Japan…and everybody asks me, “Which ones are better which ones are more passionate?”and I can’t answer. They are all the same: very passionate dedicated fans everywhere you go. So we’ve definitely met some fun fans up here though.

    Q: What’s been the most challenging so far?

    Taylor: It’s the same I would tell ya for the first film: the weather! It’s actually starting to warm up now and it’s a lot nicer than it was at first, but when we got up here towards the end of March it’s snowing and I was like when is this gonna stop! And obviously I’m not wearing that much clothing for most of the film so that doesn’t help either, but the weather is definitely starting to warm up now so that’s nice

    Q: What has been your favorite scene to shoot now- or in the future- what are you looking forward to shooting?

    Taylor: It’s so hard. I like a lot of the stunt stuff so it’s really cool to do that. The dirt bike scenes, the dirt bike scenes are a lot of fun! And just a lot of stuff in the forest, Jacob gets to show his physicality a little bit more.

    Q: Do you get to use your martial arts more?

    Taylor: I wouldn’t say martial arts. I think the biggest thing is pre transformation Jacob is very clumsy. He trips over his own feet, and when he transforms into a werewolf he’s very agile all of a sudden. So it’s just kind of…have to show his two separate sides.

    Meet the Volturi....

    You’ll have to buy the September 7th issue of People Magazine, as they have some exclusive new pics of the Volturi.

    Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus of the Volturi Here

    Dakota Fanning as Jane of the Volturi Here

    Michael Sheen as Aro of the Volturi Here

    Jamie Campbell Power as Caius of the Volturi Here

    Cameron Bright as Alec of the Volturi Here

    1) The Volturi include: Aro, Caius, and Marcus as the leaders, and then Jane, Alec, Demetri, Felix, Heidi, and several other unnamed members of the guard.
    2) The Volturi are similar to a ruling body, and protect the secret of vampires by wiping out any “problems” as vampire law defines.
    3) The Volturi live in an ancient Tuscan city called “Volterra”.
    4) Aro and Jane’s powers do not work on Bella.

    Director Chris Weitz on the Volturi --
    "No matter how strange one of the characters is in a work of fantasy, I think you have to approach them as people and then so you start to think, 'They've been around for 2,000 years. How would they interact with one another?' The conclusion was that after 2,000 years you'd probably be more than mildly insane. No matter how cultured or gracious you appear on the surface. And I think that's what Michael Sheen managed to portray as Aro, the head of the Volturi -- on the surface he's terribly gracious, warm, a wonderful host and at the same time he's lethal and frightening. It's also what Dakota Fanning conveys as Jane. She's innocent looking in appearance but she's absolutely deadly. The first thing I wanted to do was put them in a setting that wasn't Dracula's castle. There have been so many vampire movies and werewolf movies and horror movies where everything has been dark and dreary. Instead, their headquarters is surprisingly light and crisp. And the characters that they play have a kind of a tactile reality to them in spite of how bizarre their situation is really. The whole point is not to leave Forks, Washington where everything has really been quite realistic and then suddenly go to a location that completely throws you out of the movie. And the set although it's huge and grand and magnificent actually feels like a real place."

    Possible Set?

    I have not heard of or seen this as a set as of yet so it is either something that I missed completely or something that is being used for different movies.... I don't claim to know everything Twilight... so either option is plausible.

    EclipseMovie.Org is reporting this house active for a possible Set for Eclipse. I personally don' think that truck looks like Bella's - it's very red and appears to be different...


    It is the same house that had activity during New Moon filming according to EclipseMovie.Org.

    Meet the Voturi.... Michael Sheen as Aro, Jamie Campbell Bower as Caius and Cameron Bright as Alec

    Michael Sheen as Aro of the Volturi

    Jamie Campbell Bower as Caius of the Volturi

    Cameron Bright as Alec of the Volturi

    Meet the Voturi.... Dakota Fanning as Jane

    Dakota Fanning as Jane of the Volturi

    Full Name: Jane
    Status: Vampire
    Group: Volturi Coven
    Date of Birth: Unknown
    Date of Transformation: Unknown but at a young age
    Special Abilities: Ability to inflict debilitating pain with her thoughts

    “This may hurt just a little.”

    Jane is a high ranking member of the Volturi Guard. The Volturi were waiting to change her and her brother Alec until she was older, but humans—believing her and her brother to be witches—tried to burn them at the stake, which forced Aro to act while the twins were little more than children. Jane’s experience with the pain of burning alive shaped her into a potent weapon – she developed the ability to inflict immense pain on others with only a look.

    Meet the Voturi.... Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus


    Full Name: Marcus
    Status: Vampire
    Group: Volturi Coven
    Date of Birth: Around 1300 BC
    Date of Transformation: Unknown
    Special Abilities: He sees the strength of the relationships between people

    “You already know what you’ll do, Aro.”

    Marcus is the most detached of the Volturi leaders. The loss of his mate has essentially turned him into a zombie over the centuries. He is surprised by the intensity of Bella and Edward’s relationship.

    New Moon Soundtrack

    Stephenie Meyer's Offical Website States:

    The first single has officially been confirmed for the New Moon Soundtrack! Death Cab for Cutie has written an exclusive song for the movie entitled 'Meet Me On the Equinox.' Below is a statement from the band about the song:

    "We are very excited to be a part of this amazing series of novels set in our own backyard. It just seemed a perfect synergy that a band from the Northwest would create a song for a series of novels set in the Northwest. We wrote 'Meet Me On the Equinox' to reflect the celestial themes and motifs that run throughout the Twilight series and we wanted to capture that desperate feeling of endings and beginnings that so strongly affect the main characters. This song marks the first attempt that Death Cab for Cutie has ever made at contributing new, unreleased material for a film and we are proud to be a part of the Twilight legacy." — Nick Harmer / Death Cab for Cutie

    Additionally, we have the exclusive premiere of the soundtrack album cover below! The soundtrack will be in stores on October 20th, 2009, stay tuned for more information!

    You can pre-order the New Moon Soundtrack now, and we will be posting more artist information as it becomes available. And, if you need some ideas for things to purchase to qualify for free shipping (over $25), I would suggest the Breaking Dawn Special Edition and the Eclipse paperback, which both went on-sale this month.

    Have a great day!


    I still don't get how they release the soundtrack before the movie.... But I am excited either way :) 3 days after my birthday WOO WOO!!!

    Setting up for Forks High School

    Setting up for Forks High School Cafeteria Scenes inside David Thompson High School.

    This set was used for New Moon and was known to be booked again for Eclipse. I did not go to the set during filming of either movie because it is such a busy and well-known crowded set.

    These photos were on TwiFans.Com

    I have to say (after I hide behind something large and strong) Edward is just so much sexier than Rob for me....

    Yes, Yes, I know, I know, bad Mandy - but seriously, something about his whole EDWARD LOOK is soooooo enticing Mmmmm....
