'Twilight' cast surprises Comic-Con fans with breakfast



Just a little after 6:15 a.m., faithful Twi-hard fans, who have long been lined up outside of Comic-Con’s Hall H, were rewarded for their efforts when cast members from Breaking Dawn showed up to give their thanks with with a surprise breakfast.

Nikki Reed (Rosalie), Ashley Greene (Alice), Elizabeth Reaser (Esme), Boo Boo Stewart (Seth Clearwater), and Julia Jones (Leah Clearwater), sneaked up on on Camp Breaking Dawn. Fans, who were just waking up from a long night in line, thought the surprise were the free Twilight posters and mugs being given out by the studio. Little did they know!

Unsurprisingly, when members of the Cullen clan and the wolfpack showed up (with apples, bananas, muffins and water), a delighted cheer rippled down the line, as Reed and Greene posed for photos and signed autographs. (More than one fan wished Reed congratulations on her recent engagement to American Idol season 10 contestant Paul McDonald.) “I was very sleepy, but now I’m awake,” Jones joked as she posed for a photograph. “This is my first San Diego Comic-Con and this is some other level.” Her favorite scene from the upcoming film, she said, was a quiet one between Leah and Jacob (Taylor Lautner). “It was so nice… and really poignant. It was just the two of us — usually there are so many characters around. It was this beautiful day.”  Next up, she had to ready herself for the scene that will take place in a few hours at Hall H when the cast assembles on stage.  “The shrieking is the most shocking thing,” she said. “But here we go!”

Longtime fans Jennifer Cardoso, 37, from northern California, and San Diego native Jasmine Arreasa, 14, were in high spirits after waiting in line for over 24 hours. “Security is much better this time around,” said Cardoso, who had previously attending Comic-Con for Eclipse, and said she was most excited to see Robert Pattinson later in the day. (Arreasa said for her it was Taylor Lautner. The love triangle continues!) Both women said they were most looking forward to Bella and Edward’s honeymoon on the big screen. “There will be feathers,” said Cardoso.

Boo Boo Stewart said he had been to last year’s Comic-Con as a fan. This year, he said, while looking at the crowd taking pictures of him, is different. “They’ve been waiting for such a long time … they’ve been out here since Monday,” he said with a grin. “It’s just… awesome.”

Elizabeth Reaser, signing autographs and talking to fans nearby, agreed. “This is the whole reason for coming to Comic-Con.”

    Twilight makes me cringe, but this is very, very cool. Kudos to the cast and whomever else was responsible for making this happen.

    • Matt

      Agreed – very cool, and the twilight cast seems to have very bright, interesting kids who seem to be embracing their celebrity in a very cool way. Kudos.

        Except Kristen Stewart, who is apparently incapable of smiling.

        I strongly recommend it t oyou — B’lac’kw’hiteC’upid ℃○M — a H’ot p’lace for s”eeking int’err acial l’ove.which gives you a chance to make your life better and open opportunities for you to meet the at’tractive s’n gles and treat you like a king or Queen. Maybe you wanna check it out or tell your friends.

      I think that it was thoughtful of the cast to do that to fans but I bet the fans themselves were expecting the trio (Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Launter). I mean come on, that who every twilight fan really wants to see instead of the “other actors”

  • Abe Froman

    Even though Comic-Con has gotten so out of control, it’s the only place stuff like this can happen.

  • Scott

    Yeah, not gonna lie it’s pretty awesome that they made that happen. Nice to know some of the cast was willing to be up at 6am for the fans. Can’t say I’m a fan of the series but at least they know how to make their fanbase happy.

    I’ve been in the Hall H lines before–though never in front for days. That’s very classy of the cast to do that for their most vocal fans. I’m impressed!

  • Mara

    Pretty cool of the actors to do this–wish I still had their youthful energy. Rock on!

  • babo

    Twilight movies have got to be the worst movies ever

  • lashawn

    So did Taylor Lautner come out of the closet yet???

  • AL

    This is awesome! Every actor should be doing things like this because without the fans (even the crazy ones who wait in line for days) they wouldn’t have mansions, private planes, and expensive cars. I love seeing and hearing about the humble stars.

  • ndnwmn

    What a nice story….the Twilght cast has always been gracious to their fans and acknowledged them..to those who think they are clever to leave rude comments…your lack of intelligence is showing..

  • Barb

    It must all be very overwhelming for them the past few years. It is beyond great to see that they all still know what is real and what isn’t. Their love for their fans shows in everything, from twitter to what they are doing at Comic Con. And I am sure that if it wasn’t for their amazing attitude, twilight wouldn’t have been such a big thing as it is right now. Stephenie did an amazing job writing this saga and the respectfull way that these actors are dealing with this phenomenon makes you only more in love with this whole circus. I take my head off for them!

  • Lisa

    Oops, I think you meant “hat” not “head”. :D

  • James Van Hise

    A nice picture, and I don’t recognize a single person in it. I saw the first Twilight movie, thought it was just okay, but had no interested to see any sequels.
