Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and other “Twilight” stars and crew were evacuated over the weekend from a likely tsunami risk area. Some made emotional Tweets before being evacuated from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, due to tsunami warning following Friday’s earthquake in Japan.
Tinsel Korey, who plays Emily Young in the film series, Tweeted, “If this is my last my tweet. I love you. The end. Hugz” She later posted, “If this is the moment. Then I’ve lived a good life. And I’m thankful 4 everything I’ve been given”.
It seems, however, all is safe and well with the stars now. Countries all along the Pacific Rim, including Hawaii and the entire North American West Coast, were put on high alert after Japan’s massive earthquake, measuring an 8.9-magnitude but, so far at least, Vancouver has been spared, with barely perceptible sea rises.
It has not yet been revealed whether Robert Pattinson was among the actors and crew evacuated from the set of “Breaking Dawn”, the next instalment of the “Twilight Saga” on Vancouver Island. Filming has now been delayed, until the tsunami warning is over.
According to a representative for Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the “Twilight” franchise,
“Due to the tsunami advisory, filming of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn has been delayed. All cast and crew were evacuated to base camp. Everyone is safe and sound.”
The stars and their Tweets have been accused of being over-dramatic and trying to cash in on a piece of the action as global sympathy rises for the Japanese earthquake victims. However, Tinsel hit back, saying she was genuinely scared of the tsunami risk, which necessitated her evacuation.
