Twilight + Charity = BIG WIN!!

Last month, we interviewed Twilight actress Ayanna Berkshire (“Cora,” the waitress) while she was helping ring bells for the Salvation Army.

Tonight, Ayanna will walk the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere for her new movie Extraordinary Measures with Harrison Ford, Brendan Fraser & Keri Russell. Ayanna will be wearing a one-of-a-kind dress, which will later be auctioned off at Talking Twilight’s Portland convention — with all of the proceeds going to OHSU’s Doernbecher Children’s Hospitals, one of the leading children’s medical facilities in the country. (Read more HERE.)

Besides helping out a wonderful hospital, it’s also fitting that Ayanna’s dress from this particular movie premiere should go to such a cause. That’s because Extraordinary Measures is based on the true-life story of John & Aileen Crowley, two parents who risked everything to find a cure for Pompe disease — a genetic disease affecting two of their children. It’s an incredible story, and their sacrifices have helped countless others with Pompe.

Below, you’ll find the official trailer for Extraordinary Measures, plus an interview with Ayanna & Catherine Grimme (“Young Bella” in Twilight) about the work they both did in the movie:
