Robert Pattinson is not only known for his role in the Twilight saga...
- Robert Pattinson was born in London on 13th May 1986 and is especially known for his roles in fantasy movies. So he is to be seen as Cedric Diggory in screenplays of the Harry Potter novels and received his big breakthrough as Edward Cullen in all four movies of the Twilight-Saga: “Twilight” (2008), “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” (2009), “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” (2010), “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” (2011), “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” (2012).

- Because his androgynous look in his younger years, Robert Pattinson was already working as a model at the age of 12. But when his appearance got more masculine features, his assignments became less and he ended his model career. Instead, Pattinson began working behind the scenes of a theater at the age of fifteen and was discovered by an agent who accidentally was sitting in the audience when Pattinson undertook the lead, because the leading actor got ill. Since he did not get any film jobs for a long time, Robert Pattinson set his sights on auditioning the last time for the part of Edward and chuck acting in, if it would not work this time. When it got public that he got the lead role in the movies, 75.000 people signed a petition against Robert Pattinson believing that he would not match with this role.
