Thank goodness Rob refused the extensions. Think of all the jawporn we would've been deprived of!
Shooting today – Kristen Stewart’s “Bella” with her mom played by Sarah Clarke who arrived yesterday in Vancouver shooting a scene that’s supposed to be “Florida” at a beach house while “Edward” hides inside from sun.Something is distracting me about the hairline on the wig. Is it just me?
Twilight Examiner reports that Peter & Billy Burke will be participating in a live chat at 3 pm. Tune in to Mashable to check it out!
P.S. It's working now @ 3:22 ET
P.P.S. That was kind of lame-o. Started late, ended early because of sound / technical difficulties. The guys were asked about Twitter, the applications they use, etc., but Peter was unable to get through and eventually the video feed got delayed. The most exciting part was Billy Burke, who was sporting his Charlie 'stache and admitted to being 'computer stupid'. Cute!
In addition, Rob talks about how others seek to leverage the convergence of Edward Cullen and himself:
My giggle part? "They'd even let me play a woman I think."

Here is a snippet of the interview:
Now Taylor lives with his family an hour outside Los Angeles, although the distance does little to dissuade the paparazzi. "There are twelve cars that camp outside my house," he marvels. "You can't ever really get used to it, because it's not normal to have people snapping pictures of everything you do. You just have to try not to let it affect you." Tabloid attention and spurious rumors are the norm for the Twilight cast right now—Taylor and his costars are already hard at work on the third film, Eclipse. And he seems quite capable of taking it all in stride: Asked about his alleged early summer romance with Disney star Selena Gomez, he says, quite unperturbedly, "She's a great girl." Asked whether Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are indeed entangled in a torrid love triangle, he just laughs. "It's crazy," he admits, "but the fans help. They're a big part of the motivation."
As if on cue, a pair of wide-eyed young sisters approach his table, looking ecstatic. "We're all Team Jacob in our house," their mother says. Taylor does have a point when he insists that people are reacting, in part, to the character he plays—these two are each clutching one of author Stephenie Meyer's dictionary-size tomes for him to autograph—but he's also being too humble. The girls are definitely old enough to understand that Taylor is a rising star, not a teen werewolf, and they still look pretty starstruck.

It turns out despite the fact that it’s being reported as fact in various quarters that it’s just plain rumor and nothing more. We confirmed with Summit that Luisana Lopilato in not invovled in Eclipse.Read more here.

Now while some of the cast had left, the day wasn't over for everyone. There was one more location to film at, a nearby park for a quick scene involving Bella and her dad Charlie. We spotted Kristen getting into a car with Billy Burke a little before they shot that scene. and then we saw David Slade working with the crew, as they set up the set. Finally we also spotted some of the extras with their caps and gowns.Read it all here.
*Sob* A fan video that explores Edward's pain if Bella died.
And on that bummer note, Happy Monday!

I haven't got my copy of New Moon to hand (because I lent it to convert a friend like any good Twilighter) but I'm pretty sure that when Bella finds the meadow again, it's in sunlight... (<-- Turns out, it's NOT sunny in the book scene...)
Sooo, when Laurent appears, why doesn't he sparkle, dammit?!
- Lorabell ;)
UPDATE: G'morning, everybody! What a weekend of news.
Thanks to the readers who clarified that the weather was mostly cloudy with a side of meatballs on the day that Laurent and Bella met up in the meadow in New Moon.
No wonder Laurent doesn't have a sparkle scene -- because he doesn't have a big sunny moment, even though it appears in the above movie still that there is a little sunlight. I'm guessing that 'sunnyness' will be gone in post-production once the movie comes out -- because if it's not and Laurent doesn't sparkle, that would be totally lameo!
P.S. You can read more about how Edi is bummed not to have a sparkle scene at MTV.
Check out TwiFans for the inside pages and details on this actor's amazing range - I can't wait to see him as Aro, he is going to KILL it! <-- pun intended ;)
Thanks AshleyTWA and Ang
Lol, it's going to sound wrong but, I actually think this is really good casting :)

Read the rest at MTV.
One thing the trio tries not to do when preparing to film is read the blogs.
"For the first two weeks, when it came out I was in the Wolf Pack, I did it," Meraz said. "I was in my trailer [saying], 'People like me! People like me!' " But the gleam quickly wore off and negative comments began to bug the actor. "By Googling myself, I'm not going to find anything I like," he said, adding, "I'm arguing with an 8-year-old!"
Onstage the affable trio shared an obvious rapport, crediting some of their bond to cuddling on-set to keep warm during rain-drenched shirtless scenes. They shared several funny anecdotes from filming "New Moon," including Meraz's embarrassing moment with Kristen Stewart.
"I decided, all right, the Wolf Pack stay up all night looking for who's killing people on the res, so we don't sleep very much. So I thought it would be a great idea if I stayed up for 10 days straight." What should have been a simple scene — a confrontation between Bella (Stewart) and the Wolf Pack — became, in Meraz's mind, his "Brando moment." Wanting to try something different, the actor played the scene overly aggressive: screaming, grabbing Stewart by the throat, hurtling his line at her.
"[Director] Chris Weitz comes off-set like, 'Yeah, I like the energy Alex, but just take it down a little,' " Spencer chimed in: "Meanwhile the producers are freaking out back there."
" 'Cause nobody touches Kristen Stewart," joked Meraz.
"According to the information handled by the portal, Argentinian actress will participate in a film from director David Slade.
Leonardo DiCaprio's manager is a close friend of Michael Bublé and was the one who managed the reunion between the director and the actress.
It was predictable that she was going to break ground on the outside, due to her confirmed affair with Canadian singer Michael Bublé.
Is that the boy has a lot of press in the northern countries and is slowly becoming a figure of influence within the genre. He also has many contacts that helped Luisana to take a few steps in the Hollywood film.
So much so that Luisana is confirmed that will participate in a film by the British filmmaker David Slade, who has just convened her for his next film.
It should be noted that Slade is working in the U.S. on the third film of the Twilight saga "Eclipse", due to 2010.
Leonardo DiCaprio's manager, who is a close friend of Bublé, was the one who arranged the meeting between Slade and Luisana.
Luisana will have one last date with David to discuss the details of his character, Tanya, a vampire from the Denali clan."
If Luisana does have a role in Eclipse I'm thinking it might actually be Nettie or Lucy (both fair haired and of Hispanic origin, no?) rather than Tanya (if I recall of Russian descent?) - I can't remember where Charlotte's meant to be from :/
I know not everyone agrees with me but I would've put money on Evan Rachel Wood being Tanya.
Not only does she have the perfect strawberry-blonde hair and pale skin but is BFF's with Nikki (and now Kristen too) from working with Catherine on "Thirteen"!
P.s. I dare you to go Google images of Luisana *ahem*
UPDATE: Tanya is NOT in ECLIPSE. This news report has been refuted!
