Vancouver Observer reports about the Fan Encounters in Squamish

The Vancouver Observer reports about some fan encounters in Squamish:

"The cast of Twilight drunkenly stumbled into McDonalds three nights ago after a late-night party," Chris, a McDonald's employee told the Vancouver Observer. "They came in here in a swarm."

The wedding scene in Breaking Dawn is apparently being filmed in Squamish, under tight wraps. But despite the secrecy surrounding the set, the crew themselves seem to be relaxed about showing up around town. And ever since Twilight's crew rolled into town, business has improved for some merchants, like Jay Dewitt, District Manager of Metropolitan Theatres. 

Rob and Kristen Fan Encounter
“It all started when Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart came to Red Riding Hood and social media took over. These young 14, 15-year-old girls were texting, facebooking and tweeting everyone they knew. By the end of the movie, we probably had over a 100 people inside our lobby and outside our doors waiting for the two of them to get out.”

DeWitt tried to calm the storm by escorting the Twilight stars out the back door. "The cool thing was that Rob came up and said, 'Jay, don’t worry about it, let them in.' Rob and Kristen stayed for a good 15, 20 minutes signing autographs and taking pictures,” he said. 

A fan potted Pattinson and Stewart earlier at the Sheridan hotel in Vancouver but missed out on a photo opportunity. "We did see them but we were too in shock to take the picture," Mallory said. "They're so cute together."

Taylor fan encounter
"One of my mom's friends was walking around because she works with Bear Aware, and she was looking for bear tracks. She sees this really nice-looking guy running down the trail," said Lauren Aiken with a quick laugh.

"He just comes up to her and says, 'Hey, how's it goin'?' And she's like, 'Good.' And she's really, like, she doesn't watch Twilight, so she's like, 'Am I supposed to know you?' thinking in her head, and then he runs away. And then she describes him to me, and I'm like, 'Okay, I'm pretty sure that's Taylor Lautner,' and I show her a picture of him, and she's like, 'Yeah, that's him. Oh my God.'" 

Kursten Jack said she nearly fainted when she met the star. Last I heard, they were in this Shady Tree in Brackendale," said 18-year-old Kurstin Jack. "I met Jacob." She was referring to Taylor Lautner who plays the werewolf, Jacob, in the Twilight series. "It was nerve-wracking. I almost fainted. I turned around and spilled my Booster Juice on him. He laughed," she said. Jack also dished on places where the cast has recently been spotted, like Parmesans Pizza, McDonald's and Burger King.
