Fan reflects on meeting Twilight cast and crew in B.C.
"We literally dined with the entire cast right next to us one night. We just happened to be at the same restaurant. I mean, literally everyone was there, from the producer to the makeup artist – of course we couldn't take pics."
"We also met members of the wolf pack, both Amazon actresses. The Romanian Coven. Judi Shekoni and Tracey Heggins are pretty wicked girls."
"We went up to Judi when she first arrived in Vancouver outside her hotel, and she asked us if she could come back later to the cafe where we were staying to take our pics. We thought she was going to forget, but she didn't. An hour later, she took a pic with us and tweeted it to her twitter account!"

"We met some of the Denali Coven actors, the young actress Mackenzie Foy (spoiler alert!) who will be playing Bella and Edward's daughter. Chaske Spencer (Sam Uley) was amazing. My camera wasn't cooperating with me my pictures kept coming out green because of the flash, I started to panic. He then tells me, 'Calm down, make sure it's working, and I'll wait until it's working before I take a picture with anyone!'" says Proverbs.

"My most memorable moment, other than seeing KS and RP, was meeting (Twilight director) Bill Condon!" she gushed in an email.
"I've been a huge fan of his work for so long, and when I heard he was directing Breaking Dawn, I knew I wanted to be a part of it, as an extra. Didn't work out though :( . We were in Squamish, B.C., eating at a Fatburger, then we went to Booster Juice (a place frequented by Twilight cast member Boo Stewart). We then decided we should go to Starbucks for a coffee, and bam! Bill Condon was right there in line. I internally started screaming."
"I went up to him and said his name. He turned and genuinely started to smile. I told him that I was a huge fan, and he asked me what I was doing in Squamish, if I lived here or was on vacation. I said vacation."
"What I should have said was, 'I'm here to be in Breaking Dawn because you're directing it,' but the calm part of me decided not to. I took a picture with him, and he stood on the side while we ordered our beverages and kept staring at us. I was too shy to ask anything else, I didn't want to seem all stalkerish so we decided to leave but before we did Bill shouted out "Have a nice day, girls." I then replied " You made my entire year!"
She sends this message to Condon: "You made me interested in getting into film. Hope I meet you again. Maybe the Breaking Dawn premiere? :)"

"It wasn't the same without the Twilight cast in Vancouver. It was fun to see them literally every day. I hope, if Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are together (until I hear it from the horse's mouth I won't believe it), but I do hope they last for a very long, long, long time. It seems like they are two peas in a pod – from pictures and their chemistry when you see them," said Proverbs.
"Vancouver will always be connected to Twilight to ME!"
