    As Twi-hards around the world gear up for the June 30 premiere of “Eclipse,”  some of the movie’s stars will be in Chicago and its suburbs to meet and greet vampire-loving locals.

    On Monday, 200 pre-selected BP customers will have a chance to meet "Twilight" cast members BooBoo Stewart, who plays Seth Clearwater, and Tinsel Korey, who portrays werewolf Emily, at the Nordstrom Oakbrook Center at 3 p.m.

    The appearance will supplement a new line of Twilight-inspired clothing, which arrived at Nordstrom's in June.
