The Quileute Nation has issued this press release announcing that Solomon Trimble will be at their Quileute Days Celebration-
TWILIGHT actor, Solomon Trimble, who portrayed Sam Uley in Stephenie Meyer’s mega- hit, will be the special guest of The Quileute Nation of La Push, WA during their annual Quileute Days celebration July 17-19 2009.
Solomon Trimble (Mescalero Apache, Lakota) has been a traditional Native American Grass Dancer since the age of 3. Twilight was his cinematic debut.
He served as a cultural consultant for a few films by Oregon Public Broadcasting in association with PBS.
Stephenie Meyer’s comments about Solomon:
“It was pretty amazing. I looked up and did a double take. “Aren’t you…Sam?” I asked. Solomon laughed and agreed that he was. He had a couple of technical werewolf questions for me (ex. “Can werewolves phase underwater?” Answer: Yes) and I tried to control my enthusing. Solomon was super friendly and interesting, and though he looks awesome on film, he’s even more incredible in person. His features are just so stunning!”
Twilight fans are encouraged to attend and enjoy a photo op with Solomon Trimble on First Beach!
The Quileute Tribe extends a cordial welcome to all to join them for their celebration of cultural heritage and modern lifestyle. Guests will enjoy a traditional Salmon bake, Quileute arts and crafts, dancing and songs, adult and youth softball tournaments, parade and a fireworks display.
