USA Today was the first to publish a photo showing the four members of New Moon's wolf pack, the young men that can transform their bodies into wolves. The actors appearing sans shirt in the photo are Chaske Spencer, Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon and Bronson Pelletier.
The paper also got New Moon director Chris Weitz to say something about how the actors are facing the challenge of appearing half-naked in scenes shot in the cold and damp Vancouver weather. "It's not pleasant for the actors," Weitz explained. "But they have all been good-natured. They show up on location in drenching, cold rain, and I say, 'OK, off with the robes.' "- USA Today.

A group of teens living in Ucluelet got a rare chance to meet their beloved Twilight cast member when a rumor about New Moon shooting scenes nearby paid off. The school friends had heard that the New Moon production had been shooting scenes inside Pacfic Rim National Forest under thr guise of pretending to be a commercial. Heading down toward the beachfront location, the teens spotted Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner coming from up the beach and wrapped in blankets. "They looked like they were filming the scene where Bella [Stewart] almost drowns because they were wet and wrapped in towels," 17-year-old Laura Timmermans told The Vancouver Sun.
After hanging around for a day their patience was rewarded when Stewart and Lautner emerged from their trailers and came out to talk with the teens and sign autographs. Lautner also posed for photos and you can see the one he took with Timmermans on the Sun site.- The Vancouver Sun. Comment on this Scoop (0)
