Tara has met Peter Facinelli (Twilight)

Today, Tara tells us how she met Peter Facinelli, the Twilight actor.


This was in October of 2009, right before the release of New Moon.

He was doing a signing at the Arizona State Fair (I often wonder how that came about - maybe because we have two well-known Twilight fansites based here - TwiFans and CullenBoysAnonymous). As you can imagine, there was a large line of people to meet him. We had arrived there late and managed to get into the last group of about twenty people before they cut the line off. Peter came out on stage, greeted the fans, answered a few questions, and was all smiles as he went to sign.

It was slow moving because he was spending quite a bit of time with each individual fan as they went up there (there was a radio station out there that played music for the crowd and gave updates). Even with the unseasonable heat, everyone was more than happy to wait their turn. People were sharing Twilight fan stories, and holding each other's spaces in line for food and drink runs and bathroom breaks. Unfortunately about 90 minutes in they announced that

Peter would only be signing one item per person, and that the interaction would be limited. He didn't seem too happy about it, but it was explained that he had to catch a flight. The promoters were doing their best to make sure that everyone in line would have a chance to meet him, and there were quite a bit of us left. Earlier that week I had been in contact with arguably one of his biggest fans, Ninapolitan, and she was one of the organizers of Fandom Gives Back - a Twilight fundraising site for Alex's Lemonade Stand. I had told her I would ask him to autograph a New Moon photo compendium for charity, in addition to my personal one. I felt bad, pushing the 'one item' limit, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

When it was finally my turn, I handed him one of the books, and mentioned that I had spoken to Nina. He smiled, "Oh yeah, Nina! I just saw her not too long ago. How is she?" I told him about the fundraiser, and he happily signed both books, and also gave me a Carlisle Cullen autographed 8x10 for the auction. I could tell his handlers were a little distressed that he was taking the extra time, but he was tremendously gracious and more than happy to help out by signing the extra book. He even still took the time to take a photo with me.

Not only was he just genuinely nice, but his autographed items helped us raise another $125 that year. (And ridiculously handsome up close, I mean, really and truly!)

When all was said and done, he thanked everyone for coming out and was whisked away by a golf cart. It still seems like an odd place to do a signing, but we were all pretty thrilled."

Thanks a lot for that story

Ashley has met Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars)

Today, Ashley tells us how she met Shay Mitchell, the "pretty Little Liars" actress


On July 24, 2012 I heard that Shay Mitchell was going to be in NYC to do a signing.There were so many people, I couldn't see the end of the queue. I had to wait for a long time and it was hard because it was so warm out there.

When it was my turn to meet Shay Mitchell I asked her for a picture. 

Shay Mitchell and me

I told her about the time when I tried to meet her and she had to leave because a cameraman was asking her strange questions. She is very sweet and said lets do it. I took a picture with her and it came out great. Shay Mitchell you rock and thank you again for the picture."

Ashley has met Lana Parrilla (Once Upon a Time)

Today, Ashley tells us how she met Lana Parrilla, of "Once Upon a Time"


Last April was the ABC up front. I went to the up front, but I didn't get to see anyone. Still I didn't want to give up so I went to the after party. The first person to arrive at the after party was Robin Thicke. The next person that I met was from the show Once Upon a time.

Lana Parilla and me

Most know her as the Evil Queen/ Regina, but in real life she goes by Lana Parilla. I can say for sure that Lana is nothing like Regina. She was very sweet and took pictures with anyone who asked."

Alex has met Robert Pattinson (Twilight)

Today ALex tells us how she met Robert Pattinson, the Twilight actor.


I went to London for the Water for Elephants premiere and it was very well organised. After 11hours of waiting (for me at least), the guests arrived, first Rob, then Reese and at last Christoph. 

Rob was very attentive to the fans and he went to all of us even after being interviewed. I was so terribly nervous I had trouble taking myself the picture with him , so I asked him to do it and of course he did, joking about it.

Robert Pattinson and me

He's really a kind soul, adorable, funny and so handsome in real life! Reese was sweet and Christoph was really charming. It was the best premiere I went!

The second time I met Rob and Ashley was in Brussel. It was more chaotic and it went very fast because the actors were expected elsewhere. Both Rob and Ashley were beautiful and adorable, going to all the fans there."

Thanks a lot for that story.

Odelia has met Darren Criss

Today, Odelia tells us how she met Darren Criss, the Glee actor.


It was two years ago, the summer of 2010. I had only been exposed to the wonderful awesomeness of the Starkid theatre company the previous summer, but naturally I had fallen in love with it in mere seconds. In early July, my sister told me that Darren Criss was having a concert at a small venue in Brooklyn. 

I knew the name, the face, the voice--but that was it. We had never heard any of his original music, so we spent an afternoon listen to his four songs on Soundcloud, trying to get a feel for his material. July 10th rolled around, and my sister was suddenly apprehensive about going to this concert; I was only 12 and she was just 14, and she was worried we would be too young to go by ourselves. 

She was so close to backing out that she didn't even bring her DSLR camera along, leaving my pixelated point-and-shoot the task of documenting this momentous event. We arrived nearly half an hour late, missing part of the opening act (Charlene Kaye, a singer who I ended up adoring and seeing several times in concert over the next two years), but getting there with plenty of time to hear Darren sing his personal songs, Starkid songs, and Disney songs. 

He messed up lyrics, switched songs halfway through one song, told jokes, told stories...he was just all around adorable. After the show ended, he said he would be signing autographs and taking pictures near the front. My sister and I immediately tried to push our way through the crowd to get to him (the "crowd" was considerably small due to the fact that Darren was not famous beyond the Internet yet), and waited for a quarter of an hour to meet this beautiful man. 

I took my sister's picture with him (a photo in which he made a silly face while she did not), and then she took my picture with him (in which he rested his head on my head and I didn't even mind how sweaty he was at all). 

He signed two autographs in my notebook: one in really big letters because it was a large page, and then one in very tiny letters as a joke. It was extremely cute. My sister and I said that he was totally awesome--an A Very Potter Musical reference--but I think he missed the joke. From that point on, I have been utterly obsessed with Darren Criss. Gotta love that kid."

Ashley has met Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars)

Today, Ashley tells us how she met Lucy Hale, the "pretty Little Liars" actress


Last March,  I wanted to try and get a picture with every Pretty Little Liar cast member. Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell and Troian Bellisaro were all going to be on Good Morning America on that day so I decided to go and see if I could get any pictures. 

I already got one with Troian so I decided to focus more on Lucy Hale. At first I didn't think I would get a chance because there were just so many people, but right as they were about to go into the building after the interview I got a picture with Lucy Hale. 

Lucy Hale and me

She was really sweet and kind to everyone. I didn't get the greatest picture, but at least I got half of our faces in. I wasn't lucky enough to get to meet Shay Mitchell that day. While I was waiting Jean-Luc Bilodeau came out. I got a picture with him. He seemed nice and a bit shocked from all the fans waiting outside. I don't think he was expecting that when he came out."
