father Charlie. Tinsel Korey is Emily, the fiancé of Sam Uley.

In NEW
MOON, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is devastated by the abrupt departure of her
vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson) but her spirit is rekindled by her
growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). Suddenly
