The frenetic energy at the premier was, frankly, a little frightening. LOTS of patrons slowed down or came up the aisle to stare at Solomon Trimble, sitting a few seats away from us.
Where The Heck Have I Been These Past Months?Howdy folks! Well, I’ve been even worse than usual about keeping you all up-to-date on what’s been happening in Trish and my lives (and for me, that’s saying something!)… it’s been a busy couple of months, to be sure. I wanted to take a little time this morning to fill you in on what’s been happening since mid-November.>>Ok, first lets talk about the big news: the Twilight premier. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, you’re probably aware that Twilight, the adaptation of the popular book series by Stephenie Meyer shot here in the Portland-area, opened in November. Since Trish played a small part in the film (the “High School Administrator,” who appears in one scene about a quarter of the way into the movie), we were invited to the Portland premier party and screening on Thursday night.The evening was, in a word, surreal. Knowing that this was going to be something of a big deal, Trish went out and bought some new clothes and got a little spa treatment. Then, before she knew it, 7pm rolled around and we were at Rocket in Southeast Portland – the place was packed with cast and crew members (and members of the Oregon Film Office, who sponsored the event) – and news cameras. Trish was interviewed by a bunch of media outlets – click here to visit casting agent Lana Veenker’s blog, where many of the interviews are posted.After media left we chilled at Rocket for about an hour, then it was off to the Lloyd Cinemas in (if you can believe it) a Hummer limo. After Trish worked the red carpet a little (yes, there was one), we got into the theater a little early so we could sit in our reserved row… then the people started pouring in. The frenetic energy at the premier was, frankly, a little frightening. LOTS of patrons slowed down or came up the aisle to stare at Solomon Trimble, sitting a few seats away from us. Once the film started, the auditorium erupted in screams each time one of the hunky stars came on screen. Trish’s scene didn’t last long, but it was gratifying to see her up there.It was around 3 am when we finally left the Lloyd Cinemas and headed home. All in all, the premier experience was a bit of a whilwind. I think that by the end of the evening Trish was glad that she had as small a part in the film as she did – seeing the mob scene Solomon gathered around him every time he moved was a bit intimidating. She was quite happy to fade back into obscurity as we drove home.
