Twilight cast descends on Comic-Con

Just a little after 6:15 a.m., faithful Twi-hard fans, who have long been lined up outside of Comic-Con’s Hall H, were rewarded for their efforts when cast members from Breaking Dawn showed up to give their thanks with with a surprise breakfast.
Nikki Reed (Rosalie), Ashley Greene (Alice), Elizabeth Reaser (Esme), Boo Boo Stewart (Seth Clearwater), and Julia Jones (Leah Clearwater), sneaked up on on Camp Breaking Dawn. Fans, who were just waking up from a long night in line, thought the surprise were the free Twilight posters and mugs being given out by the studio. Little did they know!
Unsurprisingly, when members of the Cullen clan and the wolfpack showed up (with apples, bananas, muffins and water), a delighted cheer rippled down the line, as Reed and Greene posed for photos and signed autographs. (More than one fan wished Reed congratulations on her recent engagement to American Idol season 10 contestant Paul McDonald.) “I was very sleepy, but now I’m awake,” Jones joked as she posed for a photograph. “This is my first San Diego Comic-Con and this is some other level.” Her favorite scene from the upcoming film, she said, was a quiet one between Leah and Jacob (Taylor Lautner). “It was so nice… and really poignant. It was just the two of us — usually there are so many characters around. It was this beautiful day.” Next up, she had to ready herself for the scene that will take place in a few hours at Hall H when the cast assembles on stage. ”The shrieking is the most shocking thing,” she said. “But here we go.

Ashley Greene, left, and Nikki Reed signed autographs and took pictures with some of the Twihards who were lucky enough to get close to the stars during the Breaking Dawn Part 1 Fan Wake-Up Call.

Greene and Reed were also joined by actors Elizabeth Reaser, Booboo Stewart and Julia Jones. Breaking Dawn Part 1 is in theaters Nov. 18.
