Rob Pattinson sported a banged up face Tuesday while filming Remember Me, and our blogger Laura from London spent her birthday watching RPattz and Pierce Brosnon on set. Check out Laura's exclusive account to RadarOnline.com:
So today's my birthday - what better way to spend it than in the company of friends and family... other than in the same atmosphere as Rob Pattinson! Meh, drinks with people who love me can wait, right? Especially when Rob's filming less than 5 minutes walk from my NYC apartment - I never had a choice!
So I walk over to the general area of where the set's meant to be and spy some trailers, I casually meander over - hoping not to spark off the near-by security that another "fan-girl" has come to join ranks... who am I kidding, right?
I've been there for maybe 3 minutes tops and Rob comes out of his trailer and walks into the building... *thud* I'm happy, seriously, it's all I needed!
But, of course, my curiosity got the better of me and I take a look around the other side of the building where I find the set in full swing. Rob's character looks like he's having a bad day (I'm referring to the black-eye not the ever present Robliciousness) and waiting for his little sister to come out of school... all whilst putting those fingers through that hair - it gets me every time!
In between scenes Rob was playing with his shades - taking them off and putting them back on repeatedly - I don't know if it's because it was sunny or a nervous habit. He also kept drinking his soda - constantly - we know how fond he is of his caffeine but maybe these long, hot (fan-girl filled) NYC days are draining him more than he's used to?
Between takes Rob just looked like he was concentrating - on his lines, on getting into character, and tuning out the crowd.
They shoot a couple of takes with her running down the steps after school to her waiting big brother. She is the luckiest girl in the world and, by the way, completely looks like she could be related to Rob (in a non-love child kind of way - ha ha) similar bronze hair, the same dazzling eyes! He was walking along with the little girl - she was really cute, smiling up at him widely and it looked like he was sweetly playing with her hair a couple of takes when she came out of school to meet him - she obviously thinks he's a great guy too ;)
When it looks like they're pausing for lunch, I wander back to the trailer side of the building and, guess who turns up - Pierce Bronson! People were so focused on looking for Rob, I don't know if many even noticed 007 striding on up to his trailer. Pierce (aka Charles Roth - Tyler/Rob's Dad) was such a gentleman - Bond through and through - so friendly and gracious, waving to us and stopping to take photos with a few people - including me!
Pierce went into to see Rob and then they both walked over to the make-up trailer side-by-side together - they definitely have a real father and son quality - I approve the casting ;) They just walked over once together from Rob's trailer to make-up - they seemed in their own bubble, surrounded by Rob's body-guards (Pierce didn't appear to have one) talking to each other quietly and both obviously aware of their audience.
Sadly, Rob left set soon after - all hoodie-ed up in black with dark shades and a baseball cap and was whisked off in a tinted-window car. It can't be easy being watched all the time (although we were pretty much kept at either end of the block and people seemed quiet and well-behaved) but he seems to be dealing well enough to sign some fans' autographs at the end of the day... not for my Birthday though *sigh* come on Rob, what's a Brit in NY to do?!
