It seems like Robert Patterson understood his character in “Twilight” much better than the author who created him. Read on to know more about the story.
According to BuzzFeed’s report, Stephanie Meyer, the author of the famous “Twilight” series was stopped by Comic Con on Thursday where she interacted with her fans and discussed about her novel “Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined”, which is primarily on the subject of gender swapping.
Not only did she promote her new novel but also spoke at length about her argument with Robert Pattinson, the first time they met. The argument between her and Pattinson went on for close to an hour about the latter’s onscreen character, Edward Cullen.
Stephanie said Robert Pattinson was convinced from the plot that Edward was “suicidally depressed” and this was easy to believe for him as Cullen was a hundred year old vampire who would be forever stuck in a 17-year-old body.
Meyer reportedly disagreed with Robert’s point of view but it looks like the latter had more insight about how it would feel to be eternally trapped as a teenager and continue repeating high school every year.
Robert Pattinson’s audition for the role of Edward Cullen, who was a hundred-year-old vampire and in love with a mortal took place in the bedroom of Catherine Hardwicke , the director of the movie.
What followed after that was sheer magic. He managed to wow both Catherine, as well as Kristen Stewart, his future co-star with his mind-blowing performance. Kristen later shared with GQ that while others who came in for the audition did something thoughtless, shallow and empty; Rob understood very well the seriousness of the role.
Stephanie, praised the actor though saying that Robert was quite passionate about his character in the series and was very intense.
Robert Pattinson’s fans and admirers would definitely agree that this British actor indeed did an excellent job in the role of Edward Cullen in the series.
