With Breaking Dawn, the final installment of the Twilight Saga, filming in Squamish, BC through the end of the month, the small Canadian community has become a Mecca for fans hoping for a sighting of one of thier favorite celebrities.
According to the local paper, “The hotels are full and the restaurants are busier than ever. Their presence in town has spurred interest in Squamish and has been economically beneficial for the community — you can’t buy advertising like this.”
A local teen, Addie Robertson had the "thrill of a lifetime" when she met one of the movie's stars, Booboo Stewart, outside of Booster Juice in Squamish. “Me and my parents were driving in the parking lot of London Drugs and all of a sudden we see this red car pull over and Booboo gets out and meanwhile, while the car’s still moving, I opened the door and tried to get out. Then he [came] out and it was amazing,” she said. “He’s not that big of a star but it was still incredible just to meet a celebrity. We talked and got pictures and autographs and it was just really an amazing experience.”
For those in the U.S., there may be one more chance to catch a glimpse of filming too. According to Mandy’s Mind, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart could be filming re-shoots in Florida later this month.
“It SEEMS there may be a day or two shoot right before Easter weekend in Florida…. No one mentioned a city, and I can’t confirm 100% this is correct, but for now it seems likely just based on the number of separate people saying it.”
