‘Twilight’ Mania Grips BlogTalkRadio as ‘Eclipse’ Opens Nationwide

It all started back in April 2009 when Taylor Lautner dropped in on Stardish Radio from the set of New Moon to deliver the latest Twilight dish.

During that live interview, more than 30,000 rabid fans logged onto BlogTalkRadio—and hung on Taylor’s every word—while another 200,000 listened on-demand.twilight-mania3

Since then, many of the cast members from the smash-hit series have graced our network, sharing tidbits about their characters, their personal lives, and behind-the-scenes action on the set.

Like when Charlie Bewley, who plays a Volturi guard in Eclipse, dropped in on Artists on Demand and hinted that he might be gunning for Rob Pattinson‘s job, telling us which of the Cullens he’d like to rub out:

“Edward, because that would make the Cullens null and void, and therefore the Volturi could take over the rest of the series—and get bigger parts—and ask for more money!”

Or when Justin Chon, who plays Eric Yorkie in Eclipse, stopped by Artists on Demand and revealed that his pals are not impressed by his stardom, telling us:

“A bunch of us will be hanging out,” he tells us, and “someone will be like, ‘Hey you know what we should turn on? Twilight.’ Not to be like, Oh, you’re cool, Justin. It’s more like, Look how stupid you look!”eclipse-poster21

Or when Michael Welch, who plays Mike Newton in Eclipse, chatted with Film Festival Radio about how he’s planning to celebrate his five-year anniversary with gal pal Marissa Lefton, telling us:

“Maybe a hot-air balloon while I sprinkle petals all over her face and feed her chocolates and then I’ll paint chocolate all over her body and then get a can of whipped cream with strawberries while we’re over Paris at sunset while in our hot-air balloon.”

Or when Justine Wachsberger, who played Gianna in New Moon, revealed to The VRO— who are hosting an  “Eclipse Blowout” tonight at 9pm ET—how she got the role, telling us:

“I initially auditioned for the role of Heidi, not Gianna. So it was funny because I start reading—I read the tabloids sometimes, Us Weekly and everything—and I saw that the part of Heidi was supposedly cast. So, I was like, for sure I’m not making the cut. I was kind of depressed. But a couple of weeks later I got this call and they were like, ‘Oh, you’ve just been cast as Gianna.'”

    Twilight makes me wish for learning how to live forever. I can’t wait for the next novel.
