The Grand Rapids Press has an article about Taylor Lautner surprising people at a midnight release.
Giddy teenage bibliophiles, aka mostly pubescent girls in love with the series’ male protagonist (the blood-sucking Edward Cullen), not only got their hands on the first copies of the much anticipated 700-plus-page novel, but had the opportunity to have it signed by the hometown actor to star in the movie titled and based after the series’ first novel.
“Twilight,” to hit theaters Dec. 12, stars Grand Rapids-born and Hudsonville-raised actor Taylor Lautner.
Lautner’s surprise appearance at the bookstore was unannounced. He didn’t even tell his agent he was going to do it.
Seth has a new post on Stephenie’s Site.
As promised, the original color scheme has returned to the home page. I know that many of you did not like the BD color scheme, but I grew rather attached to it, so you will still find it on a few pages throughout the website.
Elizabeth asked me to post the following:
“For those attending the remaining three Breaking Dawn Concert Series events, please see below for autographing guidelines:
- Each attendee is allowed to bring ONE Stephenie Meyer novel from home (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn or The Host).
- Books will not be sold at the events.
- Stephenie will sign one book per person, she will only be signing her name—no messages or personalizations are allowed.
- There are no substitutions for the book—if you do not have a Stephenie Meyer novel to be signed you will not be allowed in line. She will not be able to sign posters, t-shirts, etc.
- No cameras allowed during the autographing.
Attendees in Chicago and Seattle will be able to submit questions upon arrival (due to the number of attendees, restrictions do apply on the number of questions able to be submitted, this will be on a first-come, first-serve basis).
Questions for Stephenie in Los Angeles will be submitted through iClips.net (see panther.iclips.net/breakingdawn for texting information).”
I hope that everyone is having a good time reading Breaking Dawn. The Quotes of the Day are obviously over, but if you want to go back and look at them they will be here.
About.com has a very interesting interview with Taylor Lautner (Jacob)!
Looking at the script, what was it that really attracted you to play this part?
Taylor Lautner: “The fact that I’m just like him. Just that, he’s really friendly and outgoing and just talkative and easy to relate to. That’s totally me. But I love the difference between his normal side and his werewolf side with the fierce…because that’s totally opposite of me. But I like playing roles that are totally opposite of me because it challenges me.”
