Peter Facinelli Speculates On ‘Breaking Dawn’ Seizures At Gotham Independent Film Awards After-Party


Peter Facinelli, best known to Twi-hards as Carlisle the Vampire (but better known to us as the jock from Can’t Hardly Wait, or Nurse Jackie, or Six Feet Under…) stood by the staircase. He was shorter in person, though without the creepy blonde dye job he gets on Twilight he was much better looking in person.

“Why do you think people keep seizing during Breaking Dawn?” we asked him.

“You know, I heard about that,” Fancelli responded gravely. “I think they must be dropping too much pot before going to see the movie.”

“You think Twilight fans are potheads?” (Also, who says “dropping pot?”)

He shrugged. “I like your tattoo,” he said, pointing at our arm. Over the course of the night, about 10 other people used that as an opener/closer for any conversation. Like the short, bearded guy in line for the cured meat plates. After complimenting our tattoo, he stood there expectantly...

Well, several years ago I had a seizure, and my neurologist literally forbade me to play videogames or any sort of films that had bright-dark, sudden and rapid changes that could last for more than 20 seconds... Apparently that could trigger a seizure...

Now, that medicine is sort of my field... I know that such sequences with abrupt and rapid changes of light, bright colors and movements that are repeated for a relatively long time, such as the birth scene, can cause seizures.

So... I don't know if these people who had the seizures have photosensitive epilepsy, but I do know that that is totally possible.

I thank God my seizure was a one time thingy, other than that, I probably wouldn't have seen the final scenes of the movie, which I think are completely amazing!
