Amber Pursey, of Hillview School for Girls, won the right to meet the Hollywood heartthrob by making a minute-long video based on the Twilight Saga movie series which made him a star.
Her recreation of the famous baseball scene was chosen as one of five winners by judges, including Radio One DJ Nick Grimshaw, earning the Ticehurst resident the chance to interview Pattinson at the London premiere of Breaking Dawn Part Two – the final in the series.
Judges were impressed by the use of costume in her tongue-in-cheek parody of the fantasy romance stories, which was filmed and edited with the help of fellow Hillview students Kate Bovey and Hattie Pursell, who also made their own entries.
The 15-year-old Year 11 student, of Three Leg Cross, said all three 60-second films were conceived, shot, edited and submitted within three days.
She told the Courier: “We heard about it on a Friday, sent them off on a Sunday and I got a call the next day saying I had been shortlisted in the last 15 and I would win if they called me up live on air and I answered with a werewolf howl.
“I was gobsmacked. I had entered thinking I probably wouldn’t get in, but then I got the call and just went ‘arggggh!’”
A lucky little fan got to meet Jackson Rathbone in Squamish, B.C.Check out the pic and fan encounter write-up below:
Just got a frantic phone call from my 10 year old….
My 2 oldest daughters are spending Spring break in Squamish (B.C.) with my parents. They were actually supposed to be home this weekend, but since the latest Twilight movie is filming in town, they were determined to stay until they “spotted a star.”
My 13 year old has been the most hard core, stalking out the hotel where they are all staying, religiously going to Booster Juice at 1pm daily (heard a rumor that some of them go there on a break lol) and hanging around London drugs, cause my former co-workers have met Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner (their hotel is like 2 blocks away).
Today she (13 year old) went to play with a friend, and my dad asked Jessie (the cutie in the pic above), if she wanted to come along (dad was using coupon stacks I left last week when I dropped the girls off lol).
Sure enough, she got to meet Jackson Rathbone (Jasper). I am soo jealous! I LOVE him!! He’s totally my fave from Twilight, was amazing in The Last Airbender, and was really creepy in an episode of Criminal Minds lol.

A very lucky Twilighter, Mary G., ran into Breaking Dawn‘s Nikki Reed while in Baton Rouge recently. Below is her pic & fan account:
“Nikki Reed was leaving [a restauarant] with some friends. I nicely asked if I could get a pic. She was very nice and just as beautiful in person as she is on camera. I was literally shaking for about 30 minutes after meeting her and smiling like crazy for the rest of the day. It was so surreal.
They are filming on set 4. There were lots of trucks and trailers everywhere. The crew set up a white tent outside for Rob. I’m guessing to shield from the cold cause it was freezing out there. Rob walked into the tent. I didn’t get a pic of him walking to the tent because I was too busy screaming and saying to my kids “that was Rob” repeatedly while they looked at me like I was crazy, lol. The very blurry pic of the person in the tent in black is Rob. The pic where his body is standing outside of the tent in a black coat and jeans, you can totally see Rob’s feet, lol. After a while we were spotted by Rob’s bodyguard. Once spotted, Peter F. came running out of the tent (in blond wig) ( my son and I said at the same time “that’s Carlisle” ) running out of view… followed by Rob. Rob looked like he was skipping rather than running, lol. A crew member then came to my vehicle and asked if we needed something. I told him we were visiting, but were now leaving, lol. We also saw Elizabeth R., Nikki R. (in blond wig), Ashley G. and lots of crew members”

One very luck fan got to take a business trip to Baton Rouge recently and ran into Jamie Campbell Bower (aka Caius), Michael Sheen (aka Aro) and Erik Odom (aka Nomad Peter). Head over to Letters To Twilight to read the awesome fan report!
Below is a fan encounter (including a pic) with Breaking Dawn movie starlet Ashley Greene and her boyfriend Joe Jonas!
From Nikki: I met Joe Jonas and Ashley Greene on December 29, 2010 at my hotel in Disney World! They were so nice, I saw them walking onto the elevator and I ran over and said ‘Joe! I’m so sorry to bother you guys but can I please take a picture with you!’ He said ‘Yeah sure, come stand in the middle of us!’ They were standing there for about two minutes because my dad couldn’t find the camera and I kept saying ‘I’m really sorry!’ and Joe kept saying ‘no it’s fine don’t worry!’ Ashley didn’t really say anything but when I was walking away Joe said ‘Enjoy the rest of your vacation and Happy Holidays!’
