Got a quick question or two in to Nikki about Bryce being added to the cast.
She seemed happy with Bryces addition & then seemed awkward in replying to me asking if she was suprised by the change.
Taylor answers a quick question from someone else about coming back to Vancouver.
The other day Taylor Lautner & Nikki Reed were out together for a walk around town.
I know theres been pics & vids already from it. So really, theres nothing monumental here.....But I suspect some of you will just be happy to se more Taylor pics from different angles.
As always, if you use them on your site, LINK to my site please.
On Monday Bryce Dallas Howard, the controvertial replacement in the Twilight Saga series 3rd installment "Eclipse" for the character "Victoria" (previously played by Rachelle Lefevre) was seen arriving at YVR in Vancouver with several castmates in tow.
While the likes of Klenna Lutz, Nikki Reed, Elizabeth Reaser, Ashley Greene & other newcomer Xavier Samuel got by the group of fans & paps mostly un-noticed, Bryce was front & centre for them all.
Not a lot is said in the video & its not overly fascinating...but it is from her arrival, the first time she was seen in Vancouver for this film.

Castmates for the upcoming Twilight Saga:Eclipse movie arriving in vancouver.
Bryce Dallas Howard, the new controversial replacement for the character Victoria is seen for the first time in vancouver.
Her castmates, Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene, Elizabeth Reaser, Kellan Lutz & Xavier Samuel seem to slip by as most people stop to try & get an autograph or comment from Bryce.
I decided when Eclipse started I was going back to a private Twitter to protect info.
But I have fastly learned this film has more holes than the Titanic. So protecting info seems almost pointless, and in reality, I rarely post exact info.
Everyone, their dog, their dogs fleas & their imaginary friends know what hotel they are all at. Everyone already knows who is in town, and when the rest are coming. Everyone already knows when they start filming.
I posted a blog yesterday that I expected to have a 500-1000 hit day, instead it limped in at 200 hits. My assumption, since this was literally a hair more than the previous two days is, that without my public twitter acct, my blogs arent getting seen by new people. Just the same hundred or so who have it bookmarked and a few random newbies.
So I am thinking on whether to go back to public in the morning.
If you are on my twitter, you can give me your opinion THERE.
Just @canadagraphs message me & let me know.
Dont DM me on it...unless you think there is a valid reason,
Since their arrivals a few days ago, the Eclipse cast has been all over the place...and so far, I have had only moderate luck with them.
The night they came in, I of course had abysmal luck & should have been hungry to go back out & redeem msyself.....so what did I do??? I slept in Tuesday & didnt even leave my block all day. There was some luck had by some that did go out, but it never enticed me to try.
Wednesday came & again, I didnt jump out of bed & rush down there. Even after getting a phone call around noon from another hound saying he just got Taylor, I still took like 3 more hrs to get down there. Less than half an hr after getting there though, I had success.
We saw Nikki Reed briefly enter the hotel in workout gear, she told us she would get us in a few minutes.
When she came back out a few minutes later, she was with Taylor Lautner. They walked in the opposite direction were were standing, but we tracked them down quick enough. They both stood there for a good couple minutes signing multiple items for each person there. A person from http://www.twilight-gossip.com/ was there videotaping them & said he was going to post the video soon (havent checked to see if he has yet). I went away with 4 Taylors, 2 Nikkis. I could have had more frome ach, but I wasnt prepared for that.
Maybe an hour went by & they were returning. Again. Like before, they stopped and signed, mostly for the same people. They talked again, and this time I had a video going & asked a couple questions to Nikki. I will post that video when I have more time & less of a headache. After that, they went on their way into the hotel & we would have a very long lull after that.
Kellan Lutz went out for his daily jog, but none of us saw him leave (remember what I said about difficult to cover the place?). A couple paps saw him on his return, but for the mostpart he was unnoticed. Not long after we briefly saw Bryce Dallas Howard from a distance going in, but not enough time to get her attention.
There would be a couple hours of nothing, till my friend & I were off on an non-Twilght related venture & ran into a scruffy looking Jackson Rathbone by fluke on Robson street. Jackson was still cool as before, signing everything, talking up a storm. Once he left, we decided not long after that to pack it in for the night as Thursday was going to be busy.....or so we thought.
Thursday came in with me feeling weird. I slept a LOT that night, but just wouldnt get up. Two or 3 text & and a call later I finally rolled out of bed in early afternoon & headed downtown based on info that the non-Twilight based person from the night before was out & should be returning imminently. That never happened. So I wasted 4-5 hours down there instead of hunting for Twilighters. I then decided I was going to go home & did.
Once home, I had JUST opened the door to my room when my phone rang & was given info that a considerable portion of the cast was out to dinner together. So I left the house. They were where I was told, but with no back up to help me, I was wasting my time. I stood out there & saw what I believe was the back of Kellan leaving, but without anyone to cover off for me, I couldnt pursue. Another dud. I am still pissed about it & probably why I have a bit of a headache, since I camt downtown on this hot info & was shocked no one else (at least 6+ people knew it) didnt bother to put in the time either....almost as if everyone expected me to scout it out & let them know when action happened.
So its already Friday now. I need to get up a normal time tomorrow...but probably wont.
Guess whose back, back again. Twilights back, tell your friends...and random followers you have never met
Yes. The day many pre-teen thru middle aged moms have waited for has arrived. The cast of Twilight Saga Eclipse started making their way into Vancouver today for pre-production.
The first cast member to poke his head out was Charlie Bewley, who is better known as Volturri member Demitri in the upcoming release of New Moon in November. I did not choose to go for him, as I had a gameplan & opted to stick to it for the short time. Mr. Bewley was spotted arriving into town, where he met up with a local girl & left with her, and not with a production vehicle. Hmmmm. Way to go Charlie.
While Charlie was coming in I met a new face to the Twilight fan site game (or new to me atleast). My ability to forget names of guys has struck me again (forgot his name...even after he told me twice) but he runs the site http://www.twilight-gossip.com & was commited enough to his craft today to spend a few hours at the airport himself hoping for some glimpses of the cast coming it. Unfortunately for him he picked the time of day there was nothing there....but he tried atleast. Good guy, seems friendly. We chit chatted for a while as we waited for Mr. Bewley to come in or get the word he wasnt at the hotel we were at.
After that little teaser, there was a lull for awhile. Eventually the regulars left their downtown hangout. When we got to the airport there was a lull after the plane arrived, In fact a LONG lull that had the regulars concerned.
The next flight with anyone on it was the big one. A Los Angeles flight that contained Ashey Greene (Alice), Elizabeth Reaser (Esme), Kellan Lutz (Emmett), Nikki Reed (Rosalie) & newcomers Xavier Samuel (Riley) & recent re-cast addition Bryce Dallas Howard (Victoria).
After the flight landed the waiting game started, and soon became the "wtf is going on" game. More than an HOUR after their flight had landed, not a single one of them had come out. We figured they were waiting for someone & were all going to come out at once. One of the local paps later stated that they were all detained because they had to get new work visas. Whatever the reason, they were so late that the 10-12 people waiting for them were starting to wonder what had happened. The drivers were still there, so where was the talent?
A carrier cart of luggage was the first sign. Seen on the cart were pieces of luggage I was familiar with, after seeing pics of the cast leaving LAX just hours earlier on http://www.twifans.com/ blog posts. I recognized some of Elizabeths bags & Xaviers guitar. I now was impatiently wondering where the owners of these bags were.
I then noticed another couple hound/paps who had their camera nuzzled up against the window leading to the secure indoor area where the cast was now congregating while they waited for someone so they could leave. After a few minutes of watching Nikki Reed & Bryce Dallas Howard talk & Ashley Greene occasionally poke into sight, they started their push towards leaving. I then turned on my video, as they started to come out.
As the doors opened, a wave of celebrities & handlers came thru. All of them came out at once & soon, they were seperated by people not in the mood to interact (Elizabeth & Ashley) & those that were (everyone else). Bryce was asked a couple questions & she responded kindly & happily signed autographs for the hounds while the paps shot away. Kellan Lutz also signed willingly, while the other cast either got by untouched or moderately unscathed.
The whole scene lasted maybe 20 seconds, but it seemed like 2 minutes. I got practically nothing good out of the venture. Wont lie, I kinda choked. I had a plan & I didnt follow thru. Soon the entire group was split into 2 different vehicles, and rushed away from the airport. The hounds & paps followed quickly, in no less than 4 cars, a chase was underway along southern Vancouver. As they got closer to the downtown core the car that my carload was following veered off the path the other one was taking. As we got into the downtown core, conversing with individuals in other vehicles it became apparent they were not heading to the regular haunts of the cast from the last movie. It was true, they were not staying at the Sutton Place this time. We were devasted, then even more devastated when we saw the hotel they chose. Its terribly complicated to cover and has multiple exit points. I have hounded this hotel in the past. I didnt like it then & dont like it now. But, I guess for the next two months I will have to endure it.
I did some video of the arrivals, but I have not had time to screen it, edit it, or upload it. It MIGHT not get done for a long time, at the very least, a few days....sorry.
The Twi-bsessed Twi-hards can probably start wetting themselves now...because the first step to Eclipse being filmed has happened. The cast has started arriving & my acetominaphine usage is sure to go up.
Sometime later this week, there will be some notable arrivals. The cast of "Twilight Saga: Eclipse" will come to town breifly for pre-production work.
Although on average they will only be here for a couple days each & will spend little to no time roaming the streets the very idea they will be here will have Tween-Twi-hards, Twi-mom-hards & Twi-nocerouses out in full force....oh, and a handful of moderately normal people (seriously, I actually met a few normal Twilight fans. They werent just a fig newton of my imagination.). They will undoubtedly call down there 34 friends each to sit around, pretend to be cool & fantasize about how they will woo Robert or Taylor by "just seeing him",only to then leave a puddle on the ground either from their tears while they shreik in high pitched joy or from other bodily fluids at the mere sight of someone who got to carry the dry cleaning of the guy who drives around the guy who made the cappucino for the casting director the morning he cast Bryce Dallas Howard. Seriously, there are creatures on this planet that get that worked up over something that trivial. I mean I didnt get that worked up till I MET the guy who made the cappucino. Have some standards people. Sheesh.
What this little teaser of talent is doing is really the equivellent of foreplay for these nuts. The cast will parade into town, be generally unseen & back out of town, get all these crazies worked into a froth, then leave for a week to 2 weeks & leave them lurking around the casts regular haunts expecting to see them & undoubtedly pestering the professionals for insight on where the best place is to find Taylor Lautner sunbathing or Robert Pattinson eating peanut butter cups.
Last movie the cast snuck into town with practically no fan fare & was able to go about pre-production & even the first week or two of production more or less unscathed by the crazies. This time, there may as well be a GPS system on each cast member, as the small clusters band together & plot their strategies via twitter or text messages. They WILL be a problem. I know it. I am sure the cast & crew know it. The crazy was starting to get to low levels of ridiculous late in the last shoot....this time theres the terrible misfortune of the fans knowing ahead of time they are coming, two different tour companies willing to chauffer you around to where they are, considerably warmer weather, vacation time & of course the free flowing knowledge that naive fans will post freely for others to see. The crazies will be armed with more than they really need.
I for one am NOT looking forward to this. Later this week, the peaceful existence we, the regulars have had the last few months will be shattered, trampled & violated in a horrifying parade of insanity.
For those of you who were lucky enough to meet someone here during New Moon & were thinking "hey, I'll go back & meet more of them". HAHA!!! Not to say it will be impossible, but it will be grossly harder. Your competition for the attention of anyone even remotely connected to the cast will be tenfold of what it was a few months ago. There will be more fans, there will be more autograph hounds & there will be more papparazzi. There will simply just be many many many more people around.
I realize no one will read my blog & decide "maybe I wont go, sounds pointless". That isnt the intention of it. I know well enough that advice is never taken in instances like this. But the blog will have 1 purpose at least. My ability to point to it at a later date & say "I told you so".
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
