Visiting actors including Peter Facinelli (Dr. Carlisle Cullen), Daniel Cudmore (Felix), Gil Birmingham (Billy Black) and Christopher Heyerdahl (Marcus) faced questions like Who was most interesting to hang out with? Why doesn’t your character wear shoes?, What’s your nationality? and What’s your pet peeve?
Yes, the audience was mostly teen girls, but there were sections, too, like the TwilightMOMS panel, where women who’ve escaped high school were able to get together and say, “Hey! I’m not the only one in her 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, who thinks this is great!”
But of course, there’s merch, photos, parodies, a Volturi Vampire ball tonight, photos ops with look-alikes.
This fan, Alan Mitchell of Macon, looks so much like Robert Pattinson-as-Edward-Cullen that someone working the conference asked that people wanted their picture taken with him, please do it outside the conference.
Yes, this crowd will scream every time you say “Taylor Lautner.” Or “Robert Pattinson.”
Indeed, the Team Jacob/Team Edward debate rages on.
