There are millions of upsides to Twilight fame and for one, Stewart sees them as artistic.
Stewart had not read Twilight before accepting the role. "I frequent used bookstores," she says and laughs. "I was working on other things and I didn't want my focus to go anywhere else, so I didn't even read the script. People were telling me all about it, so I read the script and I was begging for the audition."
The "perfect man"
In the Twilight books, Edward is a perfect creature. The most gorgeous man you will ever meet. For Pattinson, the most compelling aspect of the Twilight saga was in Edward's response to Bella. "Here's a guy who crumbles at the feet of this normal girl and completely relies on her on everything," he says. "You have this Demigod to the naked eye with superhuman powers, and he really feels he has nothing. And that's where the love story comes from."
Sequels?It will be interesting to follow a character that long. I started out doing it because I felt a responsibility for her," Stewart says. "We don't know if we're going to make the second one. They don't think we're going to do as well as everyone. I guess when we get the results."
Everyone involved in Twilight should be extraordinarily optimistic for the franchise's future.
