How I Met My Hollywood Crush: Chaske Spencer

Let’s be honest, we all have a Hollywood Crush—a cutie whose sheer existence inspires countless fever dreams and inestimable hours of Google Image gawking. For a lucky few, those fantasies become reality when faced with said star…in real life. Welcome to How I Met My Hollywood Crush, in which readers recall the time they rubbed elbows with their special celebrity someone!

This week Sarah Sands recounts her run-in with the actor who plays Quileute pack leader Sam in “The Twilight Saga“: Chaske Spencer!

Just like any other person out there I am obsessed with “Twilight.” The only thing different about me is that I am not Team Edward or Team Jacob. I am Team Sam Uley (a.k.a. Chaske Spencer). So when I found out that a Twilight Convention was going to be just a mile away from my apartment, and Chaske was going to be there, I had to go.

Meeting him was an awesome experience, and I had a great time. Fast forward to one year later, I was at the Mall of America shopping with my mom and I happen to look over to my left and see none other than Chaske himself! I couldn’t believe it.

He was just randomly at the mall in Minnesota. I went over and said hi and he was as gracious as ever. We talked for a few minutes and was more than happy to take a picture with me. After we finished talking I couldn’t believe I just ran into my favorite actor in “Twilight”! Talk about being at the right place at the right time! I will always be Team Sam Uley.
