Twi-hard fan is all excited

SHE considers herself Team Edward, but Allyson Hudson was still absolutely thrilled to meet Twilight star Taylor Lautner recently.

The 30-year-old Yeppoon mother is a self-confessed Twi-hard and is very excited about part one of the final movie in the series being released next week.

Allyson was the first in Rockhampton to buy a ticket to see Breaking Dawn Part One, which will screen at Birch Carroll and Coyle Rockhampton at midnight next Wednesday.

Tickets have already sold out, with organisers hoping to sell enough to fill three cinemas. Allyson said she fell in love with both the movies and the books after watching the first movie of the series, Twilight, on DVD.

"I'm 30 and I'd never read a book in my life until I found Twilight and I've read them like 10 times since and haven't put them down," Allyson said.

Allyson has met several stars from the film including Taylor Lautner who plays Jacob Black.

She won a pass to the premiere of his film, Abduction, in Sydney and was able to get a photo and an autograph.

"He was really sweet," Allyson said.

"He was a really nice guy and he took the time with everyone."

Birch Carroll and Coyle is celebrating the release with costume competitions and various other activities and will also be screening Eclipse at 9pm.

For tickets visit the theatre or go to www.eventcinemas.com.au.
