In a few interviews I’ve read online and in magazines. I just wanted to commend the dedication of R-Pat and Kristen Stewart for their role playing as Edward and Bella.
In order to fulfill the characterization Stephanie Meyers had intended for Bella and Edward, R-Pat and Stewart spent countless hours consuming themselves in playing the role. For example, R-Pat dramatically dropped his weight and read Midnight Sun to become Edward Cullen (I need to know how he was able to do that, because he look DAMN good!).
Both R-Pat and Stewart understood the intensity of the “silent moments” throughout the series of books and I appreciate that we were all able to view intensity on screen. Also, on a side note, Stewart, after finishing screen tests with multiple actors hoping for the role of Edward, reached out to Director, Catherine Hardwicke saying she would not do the film if R-Pat wasn’t to play Edward… (awwwww!)
Both R-Pat’s and Stewart’s chemistry is undoubtedly strong and I would like to thank them for doing Bella and Edward justice =)
