Hundreds of "Twilight" movie star wannabes were left in tears after they were turned away from the casting call for the film's sequel, "New Moon."

Ads looking for "any first nations/aboriginal actors and actresses between the ages of 15 and 25" posted on Craigslist a few weeks ago prompted a crowd to go to the casting location at Second Avenue Studios in Vancouver's Main Street area. Some eager hopefuls began lining up as early as 5 in the morning to ensure being the first to try out.

However, casting assistants told the crowd at half past 12 p.m. that the audition has been concluded and no more people would be allowed inside, according to the Vancouver Sun.

Those who were still outside were disappointed and heartbroken at the gates' early closing.

One of the aspirants left is 22-year-old Rosanna Razor, who came all the way from Seattle to line up for the audition as early as 9 a.m.

She said she wanted to represent the aboriginals in the film, telling Vancouver Sun, "This is a proud moment for me. Native people don't always get opportunities like this and I thought it would be really cool to be a part of it."

Though it surely wasn't a cheerful day for those who didn't make it through, 22-year-old Jason Allen had a great time.

The Portland firefighter came out of the audition room smiling, with a piece of white paper in his hand. He was asked to come back for the next try out.

He told Vancouver Sun, "I haven't even had a chance to look at the script yet!"

If he would be chosen, he would join "Twilight" stars in the sequel. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are both reprising their roles in "New Moon," slated to hit theaters in late 2009 or early next year
