In an old interview with a leading global digital hollywood entertainment portal right before their first film in the Twilight franchise had gotten globally released back in 2008, Kristen Stewart opening up on the same, had said, “We did one day of auditions and a bunch of guys came in. Catherine Hardwicke, the director, afterwards was like, ‘What do you think? This is such a hard choice.’ I was like, ‘Are you kidding me!? It’s such an obvious choice!’ It couldn’t have been better. It was sort of perfect”.
Furthermore, continuing on same and adding up on how he was not sure and confident of his chances to essay Edward, Robert Pattinson had said, “I was literally embarrassed walking into the audition. I had no idea how to play Edward at all. I thought that even going into the audition was completely pointless, because they were just going to cast a model or something. I felt it was kind of arrogant of me to even go in. I was almost having a full-on panic attack before I went to the screen test”.
Opening up on how he didn’t expect Kristen to be so serious and professional, Robert had said, “I really wasn’t expecting the girl who plays Bella to be like her at all. Her professionalism made me keep my mouth shut whenever I wasn’t acting. It further gave the illusion of being serious”.
Opening up on his first impressions of Edward in that initial first interview, Robert told, “What I never really understood about Edward’s attractiveness, especially to young girls, is his gentlemanliness. I thought that teenage girls like the dangerous aspect of males, and so I tried to emphasize the danger and make the more gentlemanly side of this character a veil to something else underneath. I really tried to make him an incredibly strong and powerful character, but at the same time self-loathing and extremely vulnerable”.
