A Bittersweet Goodbye to Twilight at Comic-Con

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: For the very last time, Twilight fans took to the lawns outside Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con to await the franchise’s final appearance at the convention.  The staunchest fans held the line for four days and nights to guarantee front-row seats.  One group of eight friends (who also headed the line at the 2011 event) spent months planning their return, camping in shifts to hold their spots.

Twilight fans waiting in line for the cast panel at Comic-Con 2012

In honor of this, the cast came out in spades, with core players who have featured in all five films attending the panel.  Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and all seven actors from the Cullen clan joined Twilight creator (and “Breaking Dawn” producer) Stephanie Meyer on stage for a Q&A panel; close to the end of the event, nearly two dozen additional actors playing vampires from related clans were also presented on stage.  For those die-hard fans with the stamina to camp overnight, the highlight came on Wednesday via a late-night visit by some stars and the author.  Peter Facinelli and Stephenie Meyer (to name two) spent hours signing autographs and taking photos with attendees.  

Yet, the day was bittersweet for fans most familiar with the event.  Giselle G., a well-known member of the fan community who had attended Twilight-related events at Comic-Con in no fewer than three previous years, was struck and killed by a car on Tuesday while crossing the street near the camping area.  One friend accustomed to seeing her each year at Comic-Con recalled Giselle as kind-hearted, saying she would never forget the way Giselle “stuck by her” and helped her manage when she was pregnant and attended the event in 2010.   Friends erected a wreath, laid flowers, and wore black armbands in Giselle’s memory.
