Leo Awards red carpet report #1- Jodelle Ferland. Twilight Saga Eclipse star talks breifly about a book just released on her character "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner"
The 2010 Leo Awards happened last night in Vancouver & all of the local stars of movies & TV were out to celebrate the 12th annual awards for British Columbia film.
This years version had a little Twilight flavour in the mix. Along with Christopher Heyerdahl from New Moon (Marcus), young up & coming cutie Jodelle Ferland was also at the awards, a nominee for Best Performance by a Female in a Short Drama. Ferland, 15, showed up & walked her way thru the couple dozen media outlets on her way into the show.
With a book being released the very same day (June 5th) about her character Bree Tanner "The Short Second Life Of Bree Tanner" in the soon to be released movie "Twilight Saga: Eclipse" movie (in theatres June 30, 2010 ), Ferland was excited, to the point of not really following what I was asking of her when we had the quite short talk about the book by Twilight series author Stephenie Meyer.
Jodelle earlier in the day had eagerly told her Twitter followers to go out & get the book & tell all their friends. She seemed truly proud of the book, even if she seemed at a loss for words what to say about it when questioned about it.
Although Jodelle failed to win in her nominated category, the young up & coming star certainly had an exciting day already. Afterall, it is not everyday that you have a book come out on a character you portrayed, in 1 of the largest phenomenons of your generation.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
