Teresa Palmer will play the female lead in a feature adaptation of the SXSW sci-fi/horror short “Welcome to Willits: After Sundown.”

The story will focus on a group of young campers who get lost in the woods near Willits, Calif. — the heart of “the Emerald Triangle” — while looking for hot springs. They find themselves entangled with a man whose mounting paranoia about alien invaders makes him increasingly dangerous.

Palmer’s real-life husband Mark Webber will reprise his role from the short as the paranoid man and Palmer will play his niece. Director Trevor Ryan and his screenwriter brother Tim Ryan will also return.

“Welcome to Willits: After Sundown” is part of the SXSW’s Midnight Short competition.

Palmer starred in “Warm Bodies” and will be seen next in Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups.” She’s repped by WME and Management 360.

Adelaide actress Teresa Palmer was a beautiful bride – and glowing mum-to-be – as she wed American actor and director Mark Webber in a bohemian ceremony under the Mexican sun.

Proudly showing off her baby bump in a custom Pallas Couture lace gown, the Warm Bodies star tied the knot with Webber on Dec. 21 in an intimate seaside wedding, which borrowed from Christian, Buddhist, Hindu and Native American traditions.

“It was a real celebration of love,” Palmer, 27, tells WHO.

Webber, 33, adds that from the moment they met over Twitter and began their whirlwind 15-month romance, they knew they wanted to be husband and wife: “We just exploded from the moment we met,” he says. “We planned on having a child and getting married–those were the top two things–and we got right to it.”

When Palmer fell pregnant midway through planning the big day, they briefly considered postponing their nuptials. But Palmer believes it made their wedding day all the more special.

“I always thought I wouldn’t want to be pregnant at my wedding,” says Palmer. “But I love it. It’s beautiful to know our baby was there with us. And I’ve never really been that traditional.”

Bumpin’ bride! Pregnant Teresa Palmer married Mark Webber on Saturday, Dec. 21, a source confirms to Us Weekly. The couple, who are expecting their first child together, said “I do” in Mexico.

An insider tells Us, “They wanted to get married before the baby arrives.”

The newlyweds tied the knot at a private house overlooking the ocean in Punta Mita, an eyewitness tells Us. The blushing bride wore a white lace dress with embellishments at the shoulders. Palmer proudly showed off her baby bump, as the two said their vows underneath an altar decorated with greenery and white and pink flowers. “They were holding hands the entire time,” the insider adds.

The 27-year-old Australian actress and 33-year-old For a Good Time, Call actor announced they were engaged on Twitter back in August. Less than two weeks later, they confirmed they were expecting their first child. (Webber is already a father to a young son, Isaac Love, with actress Frankie Shaw.)

The Warm Bodies star celebrated her baby shower with friends and family at Red O restaurant in West Hollywood on Dec. 15. “Teresa looked so happy and thrilled to be having a baby,” an eyewitness told Us. “She was smiling the entire afternoon and excited to have her friends around her.”

Guests, including actress (and new mom) Jaime King, enjoyed Mexican food and decorated baby bibs during the party.

“Everyone was posing for pictures and rubbing Teresa’s belly, seeing if they could feel the baby kick,” the insider told Us. “Mark always had his hand on Teresa’s stomach as well, and seemed excited and proud.”

Watch celebrity yoga instructor Charlotte Dodson as she teaches us Phoebe Tonkin’s fave yoga poses. By Jaymie Hooper
It’s not hard to tell that US-based Aussie actress Phoebe Tonkin is a health and fitness guru, what with her lean body and wellbeing website, Your Zen Life. With a little help from her yoga instructor Charlotte Dodson, who’s also a contributor to Your Zen Life, you could be well on your way to a toned figure with Phoebe’s fave poses.
Yoga isn’t just about the body, though, as Charlotte says, “You’ll feel stretched out, gently stimulated … and more than that, you’ll start to see life in a positive way. It will feed into all areas of your life. You will appreciate everyone in it and you will walk around with a positive and proud body and self on all levels.”
With a busy filming schedule, it would be easy for Phoebe to skip workouts. But Charlotte says Phoebe practises these three poses daily, which she demonstrates in our video (above):
1. Seat twist, to assist in balance and flexibility
2. Camel pose, to energise
3. Legs up wall (one of Phoebe’s favourites!) to relax and reenergise the body and open the hips.

Just like her character in her upcoming movie, The Ever After, Teresa Palmer is planning a home water birth in Los Angeles in February.

“It’s definitely a case of life imitating art … so we’ve been really preparing ourselves for that mentally and physically,” she said.

“We’re feeling really calm about it and I’m not feeling nervous or anxious about it, I feel quite prepared.

“I can’t wait to meet our baby and see what he or she is like and embark on the journey of parenthood.”

Palmer also confirmed she will tie the knot with fiance Mark Webber, who has a son Isaac, from a previous relationship, in the US this year.

Earlier this week, Palmer and her partner attended the Little Heroes Foundation Melbourne Cup Lunch at the National Wine Centre.

Palmer is an ambassador for the foundation and was touched after meeting some of the Little Heroes children at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital last week.

“It hit really hit close to home for both of us as upcoming parents … the children were so beautiful, they were really inspiring to us. This organisation is doing incredible things, I feel very proud to be a part of it,” Palmer said.

Australian actress Teresa Palmer has opened up about the “wasted” years she spent obsessing about her body image and being overly controlling about her diet.

Expecting her first child to her fiancé, US actor/director Mark Webber, in February, theWarm Bodies star says her pregnancy has helped her to move past the negative body image issues that formerly ruled her life.

“A few years ago I was exercising so much, and I just wasn’t nourishing my body in the right way,” Palmer, 27, reveals in WHO magazine’s Body Issue, out now. “I used to be incredibly militant about the food that I ate. I looked great on the outside but I wasn’t healthy on the inside. To think that three years ago I was in this place where I was so skinny that I couldn’t have gotten pregnant if I tried.”

Teresa Palmer is a bride-to-be!

The 27-year-old Warm Bodies star is engaged to Goodbye World actor Mark Webber, her rep confirmed exclusively to E! News.

Rumors flew that Webber had popped the question after photos of Palmer wearing a diamond band around her left ring finger surfaced Friday.

Ironically, she wasn’t wearing her engagement ring in the shot, although she is set to tie the knot.

“She is engaged, however the ring in the photo is not her engagement ring,” her rep told E! News. “She is wearing the ring from her film until she gets the real one back from being sized.”

Back in April, Palmer told WHOmagazine she was ready for marriage and babies with Webber, saying, “Marriage and having kids are right around the corner.”

The couple, who met over Twitter last September, according to Yahoo!, plan to split their time between Adelaide, Australia, and Palmer’s home in Los Angeles, where Webber’s son Isaac lives with them part time.

“My family and friends really love him and I think he’s changed my perspective on a few things about my life,” Teresa told Australia’sHerald Sun about her hubby-to-be in March.

Congrats to the couple!

This fall the team behind The Vampire Diaries is adding a whole new night of supernatural drama and romance to the small screen with the premiere of The Originals, a spin-off series that will feature Klaus, Rebekah, and Elijah on their own in New Orleans.

Julie Plec, the executive producer behind both bloodsucker dramas, talked about the challenges of launching a spin-off series during The Vampire Diaries panel at the Austin Television Festival over the weekend. The goal, Plec said, is to allow new viewers into the world of The Originals while still acknowledging the history that the characters have in Mystic Falls.

“Klaus has a history with a girl, and Rebecca’s just come off a whirlwind summer tour through Europe with Matt. So there are connections and elements from Mystic Falls and from The Vampire Diaries universe that remain very much alive in The Originals,” Plec told fans. “And so our writer challenge is how to introduce those elements into The Originals so that fans of bothThe Originals and The Vampire Diaries and new viewers will be equally as engaged.”

And speaking of Klaus and his “history” with a girl, what will Hayley’s (Phoebe Tonkins) pregnancy mean for the long-simmering potential romance between Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Caroline (Candice Accola)? “Hayley is by no means the Cinderella in the Klaus love story,” the EP revealed.

“Hayley’s a girl who’s a pretty tough, fiery, independent spirit in her own right who got drunk, had sex, and got knocked up. So she’s gonna have her own journey. She’s not really meant to be a threat to Klaus’ love life. If anything, she’s the portal into his redemption.”

While The Originals will definitely be its own show with its own storylines, Plec has plans to blend the two series from time to time. “I, for one, would like to see some of these characters show up in New Orleans and have the characters from The Originals find their ways back to Mystic Falls for something as well.”

When “Vampire Diaries” fans saw the pilot for “The Originals” spinoff, they were shocked to learn that Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) is pregnant.

When she and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) had a drunken encounter — fueled more by boredom than by any actual interest in each other — they never expected to need protection, since vampires can’t get sick, and can’t procreate. Turns out, though, hybrid vampires can procreate.


It was surprising to the actors as well as the fans, but Tonkin is taking it all in stride. “I didn’t know I was going to play a pregnant woman! I’m excited, I’m going to eat ice cream, get into character,” she jokes.

There’s an old saying warning actors to avoid working with children and animals on set — but Tonkin has her fingers crossed that there will be a toddler hanging out on “The Originals” stages in Atlanta. “I want a little kid running around! I can babysit and hang out,” she says. “I was a nanny, so I feel like it’s my element, having a child on my hip.”

She’s not expecting any domestic bliss with Klaus, though. In fact, as a fan of “The Vampire Diaries” herself, Tonkin is hoping he ends up with someone else entirely. “Can I go, first, on the record, and say Team Klaroline,” she says. “Please. I’m on the team. I’m on the team!”

As Julie Plec told us, Tonkin reiterates that Klaus and Hayley aren’t going to fall in love while changing diapers. “I think that Hayley and Klaus got together not thinking it was going to go any further than that one night situation, and that’s life. Things come up. I think they’re going to deal with that, but I think it’s more about the child, and the issue of the pregnancy, as opposed to them being together in a relationship. I don’t really see that happening. But there’s a lot of other characters, and I’m sure Hayley will find someone to help her look after the child.”

So my darling soul sister, Phoebe Tonkin, is a radiant light in my life and our friendship has made such a significant impact on me. Friendship to me is all about the right energies coming together, two loving spirits who uplift, encourage, inspire and balance each other. Over the last few years I have made an effort to closely examine the friendships I have in my life and ask myself whether we are of service to each other.

Sifting through toxic friendships is an integral part of growing older, by being selective about who you spend your life with, you really take your life experience in to your own hands. YOU get to choose the path that you are on and in the same way that you’re serious about your work, raising your family or loving your partner, you need to be serious about who you spend time with, who you hear advice from, who you allow to influence you and lastly who you allow to share a part of your sacred life force. Friends are those we get to pick, so please choose wisely.

Please enjoy this video of Phoebe Tonkin and me talking about friendship.

I am so grateful to have you in my life, Phoebe.

Over the last year and a half I have noticed some really interesting shifts in me, perhaps it comes with entering my late 20s or perhaps it’s because I am feeling that there seems to be a huge shift towards conscious and mindful living in society. Either way I have been impacted significantly.

What I notice is that on this journey I’m taking, I have become much more introspective, pensive and thoughtful. My mind is quieter, I have slowed down and have become more of an observer. My life has felt much richer as a result, things have felt more challenging and I have hurt more in the last few years than I ever remember hurting but through that darkness there has been such a growth, so much strength and I feel much more serene and happier.

Whilst this has been a very personal journey, I also have been pondering about the idea of making sure that we are really sharing with each other the steps we are taking and the light that we are finding on our individual journeys. We can help to inspire each other and share the things that we have learnt. The more we can teach each other the more knowledge and experience we all gain.

So I want to try that with you lovely readers of The Coversation. In the comments sections below this article, let’s all write about the important lessons we have learnt so that we can all help to carry each other as we face the peaks and valleys of life. After all we are in this together.

My lessons:

Becoming more aware of the Ego.
This was a huge one for me. At first, just because this is my ‘way’, I thought of the Ego as a bad part of myself and that the goal should be to eradicate it. This is almost impossible and the more I tried to fight the Ego as something I was ashamed of, the more it would dominate. So I let go of that idea and decided that I wanted to become conscious of when I would make decisions, draw opinions, make judgements or have emotional reactions from a place of Ego. At first the majority of thoughts and emotions I was having was based in the Ego, which wasn’t surprising. I’d make silent judgements and outward decisions that were to serve my Ego and it became apparent that I was just filling a void that would soon empty again. I was starting to get closer to understanding how the Ego worked and how it ultimately made me feel.

Since starting this journey of being more aware I notice that I am at a place where the Ego is much less present in my everyday comings and goings. I feel so much happier, I am a much more loving partner and friend and life got a lot easier and more simple. That void seems to have disappeared and I feel like I am making really beautiful choices in my life. Happy thoughts, Happy heart, Happy life.

Go Within or go without.

I am thrilled to have been asked to be the guest editor for The Conversation. Last year during a particularly trying time in my life I discovered “The Conversation” television series. It was truly a Godsend. Every week I would watch the show with my girlfriend (whilst eating some awesome dessert) and then after we would spend hours talking about this unique, thought provoking and inspiring program and the issues it raised. I instantly felt connected to Amanda- her openness and bravery, her wisdom and just the beautiful spirit that she is.

I was lucky enough to be put in contact with her through a mutual friend and we immediately became like soul sisters, in fact, Amanda was an amazing source of guidance and support when I launched my own wellness and conscious living website YourZenLife with my friend, fellow Aussie actress Phoebe Tonkin.

I am so excited to be collaborating with Amanda and this month I will be focusing my….Read rest of article at The Conversation
