The early aughts were full of vampire content, largely inspired by the wild success of the Twilight franchise. That five-film franchise was a bonafide sensation, making household names out of its young cast of actors. It turns out that Robert Pattinson was worried he wouldn’t live up to fans’ expectations of Edward. And the studio wasn’t originally convinced either.

Am I gorgeous enough for the book?’ And I would say ‘Let’s just do the scene and if I have any problems I’ll let you know. But don’t stop in the middle, just keep playing, you’re doing great.’ So I tried to really give him a lot of love and encouragement.
