Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene to attend UK “Eclipse” premiere in London

By Kim Palacios Twilight-based UK fans were disappointed last week when news came through that none of the major Twilight stars would attend the July 1st premiere of “Eclipse”. It was definitively announced that not a single one of the three principals—Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, or even the UK’s own Robert Pattinson—would attend the London premiere.

Though Rob will still be busy shooting “Water for Elephants”, Kristen and Taylor’s reasons for not attending are not immediately known. Announced yesterday, however, was news of who would appear on behalf of the franchise: Cullen actors Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz.

Softening the blow was an announcement that, though the principals will not attend in person, they will be there in spirit. Yahoo News reported that Rob, Kristen, and Taylor will “record a special video message for fans who attend the event on July 1 at London’s Leicester Square.”

This isn’t the last time in recent memory that none of the principals appeared in the UK for a major event. Last week’s National Movie Award found all three principals nominated for awards, yet not a single one was in attendance. Rob made his acceptance speech for “Performance of the Year” via satellite from the “Water for Elephants” set. Peter Facinelli appeared in person to accept “Most Anticipated Movie of the Summer” on behalf of “Eclipse” and “Best Fantasy” on behalf of “New Moon”.
