With Hawaii and the North American West Coast placed on tsunami advisories early Friday after an 8.9-magnitude earthquake struck in Japan, the Vancouver Island beach area in British Columbia where Taylor Lautner and the rest of the Wolf Pack are filming the Twilight series' Breaking Dawn has been evacuated.

The actors are not believed to be in any danger, but for safety measures they apparently have been moved out of the region.

The town where production is taking place, Tofino, contains a long stretch of open coast on the furthest westerly point of the island and was seen in the earlier The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

For a vampire spawn wrenched into the world through a notoriously hellish childbirth, Mackenzie Foy is really quite a sweet girl.

That's according to her onscreen grandmother Elizabeth Reaser, who plays Esme Cullen. "She lives across the hall from me in Baton Rouge, and she's a wonderful, great actress," Reaser tells MTV of the 10-year-old Twilight newcomer. "She never complains about anything. She's so professional and just a sweetheart."

Foy plays Robert Pattinson and Kristin Stewart's onscreen daughter, Renesmee, in the upcoming Breaking Dawn films. And Reaser, for one, thinks the family resemblance is uncanny.

Yes, it's true: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are frolicking in Brazil – as their newlywed characters Bella and Edward from the Twilight series, that is.

The pair, who have been getting cozy lately, slipped into their swimming gear to play in a waterfall while filming scenes for the next installment, Breaking Dawn, in Brazil recently.

Stewart, 20, shows lots of skin in a revealing white bikini while Pattinson, 24, sports red swim trunks as the two shared a smile while filming last week.

The couple has been heating up off screen recently as well. On Oct. 4, they enjoyed a candlelit dinner at Ago in Beverly Hills, followed by a Jenny and Johnny concert at L.A's Troubadour the next night. – Sara Hammel

Peter Facinelli is committed to his on-screen family.

As Carlislie, patriarch of the Cullen vampire clan in the Twilight series, Facinelli is firm when it comes to the Team Edward vs. Team Jacob debate.

"I'm Team Edward, because he's my son and I like to keep it in the family," the actor said during a video chat series for Tom's of Maine's New Wicked Fresh! Launch.

But the appeal of Edward – played by Robert Pattinson – goes beyond Facinelli's familial ties to the character. "If I had no association with the films, I'd still be Team Edward," he says. "There's something interesting about living forever, having that eternity."
