The next big book to movie adaptation hits theaters Wednesday, August 21st! Stars Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower and Kevin Zegers chatted with the ‘Koffy in the Morning’ crew about their whirlwind tour of the Twin Cities. While here, they dined at hot spot Borough and stayed at the Graves 601 Hotel. But the highlight of the trip was their first mall tour stop at the MOA. Fans camped out overnight to get a chance to meet the cast so we asked them what they’d camp out for.
Campbell Bower told us he goes to a lot of music festivals saying, “I camp at those and I get pretty cold in the middle of the night and you wake up with your head feeling like a trash can.” And apparently he’s not talking about the headache you get from overdoing it with the alcohol, “No it’s probably the dodgy prune I had the night before,” said Campbell Bower.
Collins is no stranger to camping out either saying “I waited for hours and hours and hours for every single Harry Potter book cause I wanted to be the first person to read it and I have no shame in saying that I may or may not have dressed up waiting in line.”
In the movie, Collins and Campbell Bower fall for each other and in real life they became a couple as well. Gossip sites said the two had split up two weeks ago, but on Monday night (August 19th) the two were seen at a London club together. So maybe there’s hope for these young stars after all. We hope so because the story of how they met is pretty cute. Collins told us she first spotted Campbell Bower at one of the Harry Potter premieres (Campbell Bower was in the movie), adding “I tapped him on the shoulder. I didn’t say much, just tapped him on the shoulder,” to which Campbell Bower says he was thinking who is this? Collins first impression; wondering if he had showered adding she didn’t think he washed his hair.
To hear more from the cast including Collins recent experience with a ghost, here’s audio of the entire interview:
