Dakota Fanning, AnnaLynne McCord, Lucy Hale and Vanessa Hudgens aren’t the only people jostling for roles in the next installment of the Twilight series.
Fans of the vampire love saga traveled far and wide to Vancouver Sunday for the chance to join hottie Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in the second film, New Moon, set to hit theaters in November.
The film’s casting agents held an open call in the Canadian city and advertised the event on Craigslist. According to the Vancouver Sun, they sought “first nations/aboriginal actors and actresses between the ages of 15 and 25” who would be available throughout filming from March to May.
The line began forming as early as 5 a.m. and soon snaked down a street and around the corner. Fans from as far as Florida willingly froze as they studied Stephenie Meyer’s book, anxiously waiting their turn.
Sadly, so many people came camera-ready that assistants began telling the crowd as early as 12:30 p.m. they could accept no more applicants.
“It sucks,” Rosanna Razor, 22, told the newspaper after being turned away. “I was here since 9 a.m. I came up from Seattle.”
“This is more than we expected,” casting assistant Bim Narine told the publication.
Once inside, candidates were prescreened before receiving afternoon audition times and copies of scripts with recognizable character names blacked out.
Presumably, those cast would join Taylor Lautner’s Jacob Black and the rest of his Quileute tribe on the La Push reservation.
