Breaking Dawn - Part 1, the final installment in the extremely popular Twilight movie series, opened in Toronto on Thursday evening with a star-studded red carpet at The Elgin/Wintergarden Theatre. In attendance for the very first screening of the film in Canada were Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen), Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Cullen) and SaraH Clarke (Bella's Mom).
The stars braved cold weather and even some flurries to greet eager "Twihards" who had lined Yonge St with posters, books and memorabilia hoping to catch a glimpse of some of their favourite vampires. When Ashley and Jackson arrived, eager shrieks erupted throughout downtown Toronto that one could have easily mistaken for the sound of someone being bitten by a vampire.
All three cast-members took their time with members of the media, patiently answering questions about the eagerly-anticipated sequel and their roles within the Twilight family. SaraH Clarke even spoke about her theatre beginnings, including a stint at Circle in the Square in NYC. After the screening, there was a special Q&A which was a real hit with the fans.
Breaking Dawn Part 1 is now in wide release across Canada. For screenings and showtimes please check local listings.

Kelly Cameron's love affair with the theatre began when she was just five years old, on an outing to see the Original Canadian Cast of Les Miserables at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. She instantly fell in love, and since then has been lucky enough to be involved in various theatre activities and productions, including a regional production of A Midsummer Night's Dream and a local production of Where the Sidewalk Ends. She has also received training from various teachers throughout Southwestern Ontario in both piano and voice, and competed in vocal competitions for which she received a few awards. Her writing career started almost by accident, when she had the opportunity to become a ghostwriter for up and coming businesses. She continues to do this, writing the content for all sorts of companies who are starting websites and looking to find their voice. |
Her passion and love for theatre led to her becoming involved with BroadwayWorld where she is thrilled to be writing for the Toronto contingent of the rapidly growing website. When she isn't at the theatre, you can generally find her firmly planted in front of her trusty Blackberry - tweeting, Facebooking or partaking in other such social media activities to ensure that those who want to know are kept apprised of everything that Toronto theatre has to offer. Other interests include movies, art, music, shopping, fashion and martial arts with the occasional foray into the world of finance.
