The 2010 Leo Awards, the 12th annual awards show for excellence in TV & Movies in B.C. took place last weekend.
With an array of stars mainly from the sci-fi world there from such shows as Sanctuary & Stargate SGU dominating the red carpet, perhaps the most sought out star was from neither of those programs, and is merely 15 years old.
Of course Jodelle Ferland, the teenage girl who plays Bree Tanner in the 3rd installment Eclipse, of the mega-hit movie series, The Twilight Saga was one of the most desired interviews there. Not even old enough to drive legally yet, the pint sized cutie from the lower mainland was in demand on the red carpet. She was there as a nominee for Best Performance by an actress in a short drama, for her role in "Everything's Coming Up Rosie", but it was her role in the hit movie series that was getting her the most attention.
Even though I still know her as the 1st girl Georgia Lass reaps in the TV series Dead Like Me, and to many, she is known in films like Silent Hill or Good Luck Chuck, it will be the Twilight series that for awhile people will know her from most likely.
To her credit, she handled it very well. With her agent at her side on the carpet, she answered questions about the film she was there for, as well as her upcoming work in Twilight Saga Eclipse that hits theatres later this month (June 30th).
She willingly signed autographs for the handful there asking. She posed for pictures with the fans & collectors, and even was willing to talk breifly on camera about the new book about her Twilight character "The Short Second Life Of Bree Tanner" which hit the shelves that same day (you can see that clip in my 1st Leo Awards blog)
Here is some shots of her from her red carpet arrival.
More shots will be added later today or tomorrow.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
