Ashley Greene has pulled out of her appearance in Dallas. This decision wasn’t an easy one for her, but she was offered an incredible photo opportunity for a national fitness magazine during our con. Replacing Ashley at TwiCon will be fan favorite and upcoming New Moon cast member, ALEX MERAZ!
what this will mean for all fans:
1. Those who have purchased items for Ashley have first dibs on the same items for Alex. If you do NOT want Alex, you may choose from the remainder of photos/autographs that are left for the other attending cast. Please note: ALL TRANSACTIONS WILL BE HANDLED ON SITE. Because we have offered a replacement for Ashley, be it with Alex or another cast member, refunds will not be given on any items originally purchased for Ashley; they will simply be transferred to someone else.
2. For those who want to purchase opportunities (photograph or autograph) with Alex, they will be made available on a first come, first served basis on site. Directions and time of sale will be announced at the welcoming ceremony on Thursday night. Another note: PLEASE DO NOT CALL TWICON OFFICES OR SEND EMAILS ASKING ABOUT THE TIME, DATE OR LOCATION OF THE SALE. All information will be provided on site. All you need to know is that the price for autographs and photographs is the same as the other cast members ($16 per autograph, $40 per photo). Those who got a free autograph for Ashley will naturally pay nothing to switch it to Alex or anyone else. We will also make available for sale any leftover autographs or photographs of the cast. The cast members who were sold out during sign ups are naturally, still sold out.
3. Alex’s schedule will simply replace Ashley’s. There are a few very minor changes, which will be in the printed program you will receive upon check in at TwiCon registration. The most noticeable perk? Alex is DOUBLING his photos! That means he has 120 available for purchase, so be ready for our announcements on the sale information so you know where to go to purchase one!
4. Alex has graciously offered to us a fantastic exclusive event with him. On Saturday morning from 9:00am-10:30am, there will be a plated breakfast Q&A 4. session with Alex himself. This event will ONLY hold 100 people and will cost $60 per person, including the seated meal. All tickets will be sold on site, first come, first served along with the other sales opportunities. Again, please don’t call TwiCon or email regarding details. We will let you know on site on Thursday night at the welcoming ceremony.
While we are disappointed to see Ashley go, we are thrilled to be the first full convention in the country to host Alex Meraz. TwiCon is the first full convention to host ANY new up and coming actors from New Moon! Please make him feel welcome in the wonderful Twilight community! We hope that you are pleased with this bittersweet development; our goal is to make your experience as memorable as possible. As we near the opening night for TwiCon, we want to take the time to say thank you for the wonderful support we have received these past months from our fans, the media and the cast of Twilight. See you all soon!
