Saturday morning I got a late start! Woke up at TEN in the morning, wow I needed sleep, maybe thought I was still dreaming that I had sat up til 2 in the morning with GIL BIRMINGHAM??? OMG! okay, I will put "fan girl" away and get back to the blog, LOL Today was going to be hectic.. Scheduled for today was Alex Meraz, Chaske Spencer, Gil Birmingham, Edi Gathegi and Michael Welch (SIGH) Photo ops and autographs and dont forget, seeing the Hillywoods again! LOL I really adore those guys!! Not to mention.. tonight is the VAMPIRE BALL!! First things first we had breakfast at the Starbucks in the lobby, went to the vendor room and made our way to the main theater. I was prepared not to miss photo ops today, I had Karen, Michael and Odette to keep me straight, LOL
First up was Michael Welch! Michael talked about his role as Human Michael Newton. He is not team Jacom or Team Edward, he is Team Mike! LOL He did his booty dance and (*squee*) said "There will be a Breaking Dawn"
Next up was Edi Gathegi again. He talked about being in New Moon, working with "large cows" as wolves, LOL even talked in his Kelly voice and his Laurent voice! LOL He tried calling Stephenie Meyer (using speakerphone, her publicist was very bashful, LOL) Edi is hilarious! When autographing my book New Moon I had his sign the inside front cover (hard back) because I said this was 'his' book where he was the main villain.. he took up both pages of the front...LOL
We headed down to the photo op room to get our photos with Edi and Michael. I told Michael since Bella wouldn't go to prom I would..LOL and we posed in the prom pose.. he was so cute.. so young, but so cute! I joked with him about his Karaoke on Crack singing, we laughed. Sweet guy. Photo op with Ed was quick. I didnt have anything to talk about with him...LOL
We ran back to the theater so I would not miss the Q&A with Alex and Chaske with Gil (Alex plays Paul and Chaske plays Sam). They talked about their characters. Gil said from day one the wolf pack were friends in real life. Chaske said they all talked and got along very well. They also mentions young Kiowa Gordon who plays Embry. Alex said he called Kiowa and invited him to come to the ball! Alex gave a SMALL taste of his fitness routine, a martial arts dance called capoeira!
We finished up the Q&A and headed down to do our photo ops with the wolfpack! I was taken aback at how HOT these guys were, its amazing! First up was my photo op with Alex! Keep in mind, I was 'acting' as rosalie all weekend, when I approached Alex he noticed my eyes and admitted he was 'scared'.. I told him I was seeking revenge for him attacking my 'husband' (Emmett) during the chase after Victoria down the Quellette line! So I tried digging my claws into him, i was staring in his eyes when the camera man cleared his throat and made me look away....
So I was good! LOL but Alex insisted on a second pic as he was not looking at the camera... i was a bit confused but went along with it.. (who would turn down a pose with Alex? LOL) The Camera guy had so much fun with it that he GAVE me the first pic with the second pic..
We picked up some of our pix then all headed back to the rooms to start getting ready for the Vampire Ball! That will be my next Blog!
