A Look Back at the 2010 Official Twilight Convention with Peter Facinelli, Gil Birmingham, Charlie Bewley, Michael Welch, More
Nashville played host to assorted vampires, werewolves and mortals when the Official 2010 Twilight Convention came to Music City the last weekend in January. Held during one of Nashville’s rare snowstorms, the event was otherworldly in more ways than one! The Twilight event was so memorable, it is almost an eternal memory.
Official Twilight Convention Comes to Nashville
The Gaylord Opryland Resort may have been a vision of a Tennessee Christmas on the outside when the Official Twilight Convention came to Nashville in 2010, but inside it was Forks, Washington all the way as Twilight cast members including Peter Facinelli, Gil Birmingham, Charlie Bewley, Michael Welch, Bronson Pelletier and Kiowa Gordon wove their Twilight magic with the crowds. Kellan Lutz was supposed to be on hand but had to cancel a couple of weeks before the Nashville convention.
After various introductions, slides, and videos (including the Hillywood Show spoof of New Moon), Gil Birmingham (Billy Black) got things rolling with in informative Question & Answer session where he talked about everything from his music, to his charities, to Taylor Lautner and the “Puppy Pack.”
A couple of hours later it was Peter Facinelli’s (Carlisle Cullen) turn to entertain the crowd with his many amusing anecdotes about his different movie and television roles as well as his thoughts on vampires, the Cullens, and Twilight.
The Official Twilight Convention included a Volturi Ball, a breakfast with the stars, photos ops, music, and many other opportunities to get to know more about the cast and the movies. The convention is visiting several cities around the country but without Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart or Taylor Lautner.
