    Yes! They’re not putting Vanessa An Hudgens as Leah! This was the first thought that came into my mind when I opened the link. Before New Moon came out, my older sister told me about a rumor that Vanessa An Hudgens would be playing Leah. I didn’t like the idea of that, and I’m glad that they didn’t choose her. What’s also pretty cool is that the character is from Boston. Maybe there’s a chance that we could meet her. Also, the actress looks the part. She has short hair, just like most of the werewolves do, and she has that tough character look that Leah does. I’m glad with the choice.

    That is so cool. I have always wanted a movie star to be from Cape Cod. I can’t wait for Eclipse to come out, I am so excited. Does anyone else know other famous people that have ties to the Cape?

    Hey Monique, Emeril Lagasse is from around here but not sure exactly where. I know he also had his first restaurant around here but again don’t know where. Hope this helped! (:

    …and Rachel Ray spent some of her childhood on Cape Cod too. I wonder how many other celebrities have ties to the Cape?

    Thanks Liam and kbotelho for your help. I think is so cool that famous people are from right around where we live.
