Biography

In the tried and true nature of all movie magic moments in time, it took only one film to turn Robert Pattinson from unknown featured player to the idol of millions of women of all ages around the globe. The British actor, who prior to 2008 was best known as the doomed Cedric Diggory in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" (2005), was cast as Edward Cullen, the romantic vampire hero of "Twilight" (2008). The news of the casting sent shockwaves through the young adult community that worshiped the novels by Stephanie Meyer on which the film was based, and who quickly elevated Pattinson to favored pin-up status. The buzz around Pattinson seemed to solidify what the British press had ordained him in 2005 - a "Star of Tomorrow." Of course, he tried to branch out with a turn as surrealist painter Salvador Dali in "Little Ashes" (2009), but the Twi-hard masses largely ignored it in favor of him reprising Edward in "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" (2009), "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" (2010) and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" (2011). In between, Pattinson strove to separate himself further with turns in the romantic drama "Remember Me" (2010) and "Water for Elephants" (2011), but remained inextricably entwined in "Twilight" for better or worse during the early part of his career.
