Robert Pattinson’s BiographyRobert Thomas Pattinson is a British actor, most famous for his role in a vampire saga “Twilight”. He started his acting career at the age of 14, when he got a part in “Ring of the Nibelungs” and later played Cedric Diggory in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”.
Robert’s ChildhoodRobert is the youngest child in the family and has two elder sisters – Lizzy and Victoria, who by no means are connected to the film industry. Lizzy is a musician and composer; Victoria is in the advertising business.
First rolesFirst Robert’s role in cinema came in 2004 when a 16-year-old portrayed Giselher in a fantasy movie “Ring of the Nibelungs”, and soon after that, he made an appearance in “Vanity Fair” alongside Reese Witherspoon. Although the director decided to cut all of Pattinson’s scenes, so the actor can be seen on the DVD-version of the film.
The next year was far more successful for Robert as he was cast for the role Cedric Diggory in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”. The young actor became acquainted with the film director Mike Newell in 2003 and it helped him become the front runner for the role of a Hufflepuff student. His character, brave and hard-working Cedric, chosen by the Goblet of Fire to compete in the Triwizard tournament, was well-loved by the audience.
As his popularity grew, Rob was invited to model again and in 2007 he walked on the runway for «Hackett's» fall collection.
“The Twilight Saga"2008 was a real breakthrough year in Robert Pattinson’s career. After the release of “Little Ashes”, where the Englishman portrayed Salvador Dalí and a comedy “How to Be”, he starred in a young adult romantic fantasy film “Twilight”. The role of a pale aristocratic vampire Edward Cullen, who fell in love with an ordinary mortal girl, became his trademark for a long time.
RecognitionFor the next couple of years, Pattinson tried to get rid of the image of a romantic vampire that stuck with him after “The Twilight Saga”. Perhaps that is why the actor was more careful and selective when choosing his following roles. He managed to prove to the audience that he was no stranger to meaningful dramatic roles and, portrayed a misfortunate student Tyler in a drama “Remember Me” (2010) and a young veterinary Jacob in a romantic drama “Water for Elephants” (2011).
That same year Pattinson had the opportunity to collaborate with a famous director David Cronenberg while working on a film adaptation of a novel “Cosmopolis” by Don DeLillo. The film is distinguished by, so to say, a particular intimacy where everything that happens is confined to one location – a limo, which a young billionaire is riding across Manhattan.
Music CareerRobert enjoys playing the guitar and keyboard. Before becoming a rising Hollywood star, he played in a rock band “Bad Girls” and also ventured into solo singing under the name of Bobby Dupea.
It is worth mentioning that Robert Pattinson has written and performed the ballads “Let Me Sign” and “Never Think” for “The Twilight Saga”, and the former was included in the official soundtrack of the movie.
