Today the cast of Twilight graced Comic-Con with their presence yet again. The loyal Twilight fans welcomed the cast with open arms and plenty of screaming, naturally.
Unfortunately, on Tuesday, a Twilight fan was hit and killed while crossing the street to Comic-Con’s location, San Diego Convention Center. She was later identified as Gisella G. Twilight lovers showed support via Twitter after the tragic death, tweeting #RIPTwiFanG.
The cast showed their support for Gisella G. as well. Nikki Reed spoke about the tragedy at the start of the convention saying “It’s a really horrible thing that happened, and it’s just a tragic accident. I can feel it amongst the fans, but there’s also a real sense of community and people are coming together and actually being really positive about it. They feel that this is what she would have wanted, is for all of them to still be here and see the positive aspects of it: that they’re all together.”
Festivities continued (with Gisella G. in everyone’s heart of course). Some cast members like Jackson Rathbone, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Elizabeth Reaser, and author Stephenie Meyer even surprised their most loyal fans at their camp site. It was definitely a meet and greet that the lucky few fans will remember for years to come.
Fans definitely felt bittersweet about the whole event, recognizing that it is the last one. We too here at Socialite Life are sadden that this is the last one so take a look at the gallery, and let’s take a walk through memory lane at this years Twilight Comic-Con and past year’s.
