Robert Pattinson's Revelation

When Robert Pattinson was cast in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, little did he know his life would forever change. Not only was he part of one of the most popular franchises in movie history, but he would soon find even greater success as the star of the worldwide hit, Twilight. But back in 2008, Rob was just doing his job as an actor, promoting his latest work in a series of interviews that would later reveal to be quite telling about both HP and himself.

Robert Pattinson, worldwide superstar and the unequivocal leader of the Twilight franchise, was just a struggling actor when he made his debut in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Little did he know that in a few short years, his life would forever change. When he was promoting the film, he revealed quite a few details of what life is like in the Harry fishbowl and how he teamed up with Rupert Grint for some male bonding.

Revealed Robert, "I didn't know how I would be interpreted, so I went into Harry Potter determined to be a real actor and kind of didn't speak to anyone for awhile. I didn't notice the transition to being accepted, but they are all really nice people. It seems like it should have been daunting, but it wasn't. We did a bonding week where we made fools of ourselves, doing lots of improvising. I paired up with Rupert a lot."

"When Harry Potter came along, it was a huge step and a massive event in my life!"

Robert was just a struggling actor and musician when he auditioned for the Harry Potter franchise. He soon revealed that it took a lot more than a little luck to get the job.

"I was filming a movie in Cape Town, South Africa. I was just 17!" he stated. "The casting agent on the film Vanity Fair was the same agent working on Potter and I was the first person seen for any part on the film."

The challenges of filming any HP film are massive, as there are intricate sets, stunts and difficult shots to achieve to make the magic that happens with each epic film. Robert revealed that he found the challenge a bit tough sometimes.

"It was a very physical part. The stuff in the maze, which was done in the beginning, was done on all huge action sets. The hedges were huge and hydraulically operated. I got hit by stuff and was pulled by ropes, and Dan (Radcliffe) and I were running around punching each other, so it was kind of vicious."

I have been a fan of him since he came out in Harry Potter. After I saw the 4th film of Harry Potter, I prayed for more Robert's success in future coz he has great potential as an actor. I was glad after hearing the news he got the part as Edward Cullen in Twilight. His career is getting better and better. Godspeed Robert Pattinson!

I completely agree with the first comment. He just seems like such a good person. And its his connection to his fans that keeps us loving him. Edward Cullen is great but he doesn't even compare to the real Robert Pattinson.

I'm so very grateful to Harry Potter for hiring Rob or he never would've gotten to Twilight and made it into my heart!! He's such a wonderful actor, humanitarian, and all around person! He's got a huge fan base and it's not all teens, it's women of all ages because he's more than Edward Cullen, that may have what put him into stardom, but not what keeps us in Love with him!! We Love the passion he puts into every role he plays, the skill he has in acting, his charisma, and the Love he shows to his fans no matter how tired he is!! Robert Pattinson is going to be around for a long, long time!! ;=)
