Cameron Bright Q & A at Twilight Convention in Vancouver
He did 2 sessions, one Saturday and one Sunday and I really enjoyed meeting him. I have included both Q&A Sessions here as well as a coupkle photos - I took so many I knew it would take hours to upload and tag so I have only chosen a couple from each session.
That was it for his first Q & A.
On Sunday he did a 2nd one, there were some repeat questions but a lot of new faces in the crowd so he answered some again for them..
Between Scenes what does Cam like to do?
Just goof off. Twilight sets are cool because the cast is mostly his age compared to other films were he’s been the youngest by several years.
Fave actor to work with?
Peter, who was still doing autographs backstage yells “Peter Facinelli” so Cam laughs and says he doesn’t favour people he treats everyone the same but he enjoyed working with Peter as well as Robert De Niro and just everyone he has worked with.
Will the Canucks every win the Stanley Cup?“Don’t get me started” he says again. And the hockey banter continues between him and a few fans. His fave player is Bertuzzi (which got some shocked reponses) or Matt Cooke but not Crosby. He says he met the Cauncks and you wouldn’t want to mess with them.
What is his ringtone on his phone?
It’s always on vibrate
Where did he get those awesome shoes?
Yesterday at ADIDAS
He talks about shoes and how he loves unique and crazy styles. He says he buys them when he travels like souvenirs. There is debate as to why he doesn’t buy postcards and he says he likes shoes best.
What did he do when he found out he got the part?
Danced like a little girl.
How long did he work on the movies?
About 2 weeks total. 1.5 for New Moon and 3 days for Eclipse.
A question came from a strange voice “Um, who is your faveourite co-star? Peter Facinelli or Robert DeNiro?” It was Peter asking from back stage, he poked his head out and Cam kind of snuck up on him back stage. They joked around a bit it was funny.
Then Peter left and a few girls huddled towards peter so cam joked “Peter, leave the building man” ha ha it was really cute.
He talked cars, I didn’t really follow because I have no knowledge on vehicles and was completely lost.
He has a lot but one is Saving Private Ryan.
Does he hang out on set or off set with his co-stars?
He says they are all awesome but he tries to give them space because in the industry he knows they don’t get a lot of alone time so he tries to respect that. “The whole cast is dope” he says.
Does he like being bad?
Yes! Being bad you can be any level of bad you want, you can even be good when you are bad, but when you are good, you have to be good and so he prefers to be bad.
What did he eat a lot on set?
Grilled Cheese Sandwich, it reminds him of childhood. Dipped in ketchup.
Fans ask his shoe size.
Size 10-ish. He loves the wacky shoes “wackier the better”
He doesn’t get why paparazzi follow celebrities around, he says everyone should be treated the same. This is something he obviously believes in as it come sup a lot both days. You can tell Cam is very down-to-earth and approachable.
I had tweeted that his mom calls him “Snickerdoodles” but I was wrong… I talked with her at the convention and introduced myself. She also messaged me later that night and said it was “Schnookerdoodles” – awwwn….
Fave Type of music? Artist?
Hip-hop and Rap. He likes Lil’ Wayne
Fave Horror Movie?
Quarantine. He says he liked that it was done from the one camera angle and was unpredictable and could happen. He says most horror flicks he can guess what will happen just by the music or something.
Fans asked him to dance but he wouldn’t
He has a shoe line coming out soon, he loves unique and odd shoes.
Soccer, Football and Paintball. He sauys paintball is surprisingly a good workout because you are running around all day.
Fave Vacation Spot?
He says he is going away for his 18th brithday
What a pleasure it was to have Cameron Bright at the Convention. I hope you appear at more conventions.
