article image'Breaking Dawn' cast evacuated due to tsunami; production on hold

Fans looking forward to the release of the last part of the 'Twilight' saga may have to wait a little bit longer as production was placed on hold following a tsunami warning brought about by the 8.9-magnitude earthquake that rocked Japan on Friday.
Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, the rest of the cast and crew of 'Breaking Dawn'—the latest installment to the 'Twilight' saga—were forced to evacuate the Vancouver Island beach in British Columbia after tsunami warnings were raised along Canada's coastline.
Summit Entertainment has released a statement saying that "due to the tsunami advisory, filming of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn has been delayed." A note stating the same notice was also posted on the Facebook page of the Twilight Saga.
According to Toni Atterbury—spokeswoman for the 'Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' team—all 125 cast and crew members were moved to higher ground and relocated to a nearby base camp as a precautionary measure on Friday morning, and "everyone is safe and sound."
However, one cast member may have found the tsunami warnings a little bit too much to handle. Tinsel Korey, who plays Makah Emily Young—the girlfriend of wolf pack leader Sam—posted a rather dramatic message on her Twitter account.
"They're evacuating us 4 a tsumnani warning," she tweets. "If this…is my last tweet. I love you. The end. Hugz. If this is the moment. Then I've lived a good life. And I'm thankful 4 everything I've been given."
A bit too dramatic? Korey doesn't believe so. "I'm not trying 2 b dramatic!!! I'm just saying my peace," she explains in her tweet. "This is my truth now."
