Our first glimpse of them was at the photo op, which was incredibly intimidating. Peter is extremely handsome (extremely), but I have to say, Kellan is absolutely gorgeous (seriously, we're talking Adonis). Of course, it didn't help my concentration that I had recently seen him in his underwear (come on, you know which pictures I’m talking about).
TwiloveSue, Peter, Twi-daughter Nicole, Kellan (do we look height-impaired or what?)
After the photo op, they each did 30 minute Q&A sessions individually and then another 30 minutes together. They were absolutely hysterical. Since it’s now been over a year since the convention and I have a memory of a goldfish anyway, it should come as no surprise that I remember very few details. Plus, you have to realize I was in a bit of a stupor having them both right there in front of me.
Sorry, I know the lighting is terrible…
As you know, it’s important to have one picture in which Kellan is looking directly at me.
Actually, I do remember Kellan talking about a movie role he had just accepted in which he was going to play the Greek God Poseidon with a lot of shirtless scenes (Immortals opens later this year!). He also joked about his plan to thwart the papparazi by wearing the same clothes every day while out jogging with his dog. He figured they wouldn’t be able to sell new pictures if he always looked the same and eventually they would just leave him alone. He also told funny stories about how his dog Kola kept getting lost from his yard and girls would always find and return her, like it was all just a big coincidence. He just had such an adorable, humble way about him and I know every person in that room was so hooked.
I honestly can’t remember anything specific about Peter’s Q&A session… sorry!! We’ve seen him several times now and I can’t remember what he said at which one and I think you’d figure it out if I started making stuff up. Anyway, I can say for sure that he was super charming and we laughed a lot.
The pictures are pretty to look at, though, aren’t they?
Peter and Kellan together were hilarious. You can tell they’ve spent a lot of time together and were very good friends. They teased each other and told lots of funny stories about one another and other cast members.
Let’s all just agree that Peter is looking at me in this shot.
Unfortunately, Kellan had other obligations and had to leave before the autograph session started, but they gave us each a pre-autographed picture from him. Mine said “I love you, Love Kellan” and obviously it was meant just for me (shhhhh, don’t burst my bubble).
Nicole and I both had Peter sign our group pictures from when we had seen him a few weeks earlier. He asked us where they were from, so we talked about the event a little and I told him how much I admire him for hosting charity fundraisers. He is just so modest and genuinely a good person.
We also teased Peter about his voiceover comments on the Wii Twilight Scene-It game. Nicole chose to be "Waylon" when we played it once (she's weird) and then when she got a correct answer, Carlisle’s voice said "Waylon, you sparkle like a diamond" and that really cracked us up. We tried to get him to say it last time we saw him and he said he was too embarrassed, but this time he covered his eyes and wouldn't look at us and said it in a really dreamy voice. It was so funny. On Nicole's picture, he wrote "Nicole, you sparkle like a diamond." On my picture he wrote "My darling Sue, XOXO Peter Facinelli" and I blushed like an idiot.
I don’t know if the Twilight cast will continue to do these kinds of conventions for many years like Star Trek actors still do, but I am so glad we at least have this small window to enjoy them. I hope it comes across in my posts that I find these conventions highly entertaining and a great opportunity to meet and get to know the cast members just a little bit. We’re all caught up in this indescribable Twilight wave together and might as well enjoy it to the fullest while it lasts.
And I’ll end with one of my favorite Rob pictures from awhile back that makes me want to re-read "The Office". Since it’s in black and white, I'm thinking I snagged this one from 17foreverLisa’s blog (thank you, Lisa!)
