Dances With Wolves: Geeks of Doom's NJ Twilight Convention Report & Photos

Fans got to dance with the Wolfpack :-)

Geeks of Doom has a great write-up of some of the funny highlights from last weekend's Twilight convention in NJ.

When asked about funny moments during filming, Alex shared a story about teaching Kiowa to throw a punch… during which Kiowa caught him off guard and landed one flat on his nose. He had to decide whether to “kill him or not” and Kiowa said he told him he knew how to throw a punch. Chaske’s moment came during the scene where Bella hits him in the chest because she’s angry for Jacob. He said he didn’t want to say anything at the time, but she was really hurting him…and he was actually sore the next day. Acting the manly man, however, he took it like a champ and told Kristen he was surprised at what a good punch she could throw. He said Kristen wasn’t surprised — she’s got three brothers so she’s had a lot of practice.

In a later Q&A session, the Wolf Pack actors talked about the paparazzi and how they come out of nowhere. Alex said that one guy popped out of a dumpster and while he and the others were startled and took awful pictures, Taylor just stood there and posed his best wolf poses… he said the kid can’t take a bad picture. I’m inclined to agree.

Edi Gathegi, bad vamp Laurent from Twilight and New Moon, is a seriously funny guy… who knew? He was asked about performing the scenes with the wolves, to which he replied he didn’t actually perform with them since the wolves were all CGI… he was actually performing with cardboard cows. Yup, a production assistant holding up a cardboard cow on a stick was a stand-in for the giant CGI wolves. He went off in a girl voice as if she was watching the movie, “I see cows in his eyes, not wolves, I want my money back, he’s seeing cows,” hysteria ensued.

  3. Hmm, I would have paid through the nose to dance with Chaske. How sad is my life?

  4. @TJB- Can you imagine him saying something in your ear with that delicious voice of his? I would be a puddle at his feet, lol.

  5. @Pinky - I know, his voice is super sexy and he is plus 30, so I'm loving that, but it isn't real and it's gross because I would be paying for it.

  6. LOL@TJB- No kidding, but it's always fun to imagine.
