Twilight Japan Tsunami Evacuation
The Twilight cast and crew were evacuated because of the recent tsunami in Japan.
As the tsunami warning sirens wail all throughout the Pacific there are evacuations everywhere from Hawaii to the all up and down the west coast of the US. The producers of the new Twilight movie (Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) currently filming in Vancouver B.C. are taking no chances and have evacuated the cast and crew to higher ground.
As the world watches the devastation caused by the 8.9 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Japan evacuations have been called for around the Vancouver Island area where Twilight Breaking Dawn is currently filming. Summit Entertainment has issued a statement that said, “Due to the tsunami advisory, filming of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn has been delayed. All cast and crew were evacuated to the movie production’s base came. Everyone is safe and sound.”
So fans can rest easy. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are all well out of harm’s way.
The Tsunami evacuation didn’t come without worry. Tinsel Korey (who plays Emily) took to her Twitter as the evacuation was underway with a couple of dramatic tweets: “They’re evacuating us 4 a tsunami warning. If this is my last tweet. I love you. The end.Hugz.” Which was followed by “If this is the moment. Then I’ve lived a good life. And I’m thankful 4 everything I’ve been given. 1 love. I’m not trying 2 be dramatic!!! I’m just saying my peace. This is my truth right now 1 Love.”
Other Twilight cast members jumped in with tweets as well. Kellan Lutz tweeted, “Praying for everyone in japan, Hawaii and on the west coast!” Peter Facinelli added, “The world is a fragile place. #prayforjapan.”
There is no word from producers how long they will delay filming, but I would assume they will stay off the island until they are told by officials that any chance of danger has passed.
Let’s all just hope that the worst has passed and that there are no more casualties from the Japan Earthquake / Tsunami anywhere.
