My Baton Rouge Visit

I saw this today - - -

It is so interesting that these cast mates are being spotted in the very same place I was wandering last week... ;) heh heh

As soon as I saw the shots of Ashley Greene and Joe Jonas out and about then Kellan as well and finally the "Holy Trinity" Rob, Kristen and Taylor at the studio... I felt that excitement of filming.

Even though I am not in Baton Rouge (or rather, they are not here filming) I am still excited to bring as much news as I can throughout filming via my very awesome friends who live in Baton Rouge.

I've recieved a few emails from them already but obviously I don't feel it is my place to blog all the nitty gritty (but I promise to give you as much as I am confortable with... those of you who followed me during NM and E here in Vancouver know I try to be respectful of the actors and not give away their location until they have left, or a set address until they have wrapped. There is a reason for this, I have met crazy-scary fans who were out to cause problems and it is not my place to give them the location to do so!!!)

That being said - here is the latest and greatest "inside scoop" (if you want to call it that) on filming in Baton Rouge...


While I was there we did NOT see any cast, but for me it was really exciting to be in the area we knew they would be spending time in.

A friend of mine had the low-down on where the cast was booked to stay and we wandered through the area and it's a really nice community.

Baton Rouge has a really nice small town feel that I think may allow cast to feel more comfy to be out and about. I know that where Rob and Kristen and Taylor are staying (different from the rest of the cast) is NOT accessible. Nor are they going to be there for long... once they move, I have a feeling those three will be spotted far less than people hope - time will tell.

A friend I know talked to her friend who works at the location Rob is staying (apparently he was there when we were!!) but security is very tight on his whole floor and even staff do not come past the elevator. (ie - room service was brought to Rob's people at the elevator who brought it to his room)

Rumours are that Rob & Kristen are sharing a "love nest" and while I have NO IDEA my friend says (since no staff had access to that floor to confirm who is rooming with who) they are/were at least on the same floor - - think waht you may with that info ;) ha ha "Love nest" seems plausible non?

Apparently Rob (& Kristen?) will be moving from that spot to a private residence shortly (if not already - perhaps that is the LOVE NEST? ha ha) Reminds me of Vancouver when much of the cast moved to the private condo's more privacy, space, and security!

Speaking of security, when I went to the studio I chatted with the head security at length (about local food, various productions including Breaking Dawn, Battleship with Alexander Skarsgård, and Faith Ford's voice over work... she actually drove by and said hi as we were chatting)

They informed me that in addition to their full security staff the production company was bringing in excessive security of their own for the "twilight movie" He also said they were erecting 8 foot black privacy screens around the perimeter.

He also said we were the "first ones" to come asking about Twilight - ha ha - I assured him we were NOT the last ;)

I was so glad to be able to pop by the studio while in Louisiana. Though I spent most of my time in NOLA, we spent a day in BR to meet friends and also to go through Hammond/Ponchatoula to visit my ex's gravestone :(

Overall the trip was fun with my girlies and informative. Now, when my friend emails me details about filming or cast sightings I have been there and can understand the area better - - my trip was "research" ha ha that's it LOL

Here are a few photos - but as I mentioned before ALL my pics are up on my facebook search MANDY S MIND and add me :)

Battleship preproduction:

Nice community with shopping and outdoor entertainment...



Here are some recent fan pics of cast in the same community we wandered...
