Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Michael Sheen, and Dakota Fanning star under the direction of Bill Condon. Look out for a more in-depth interview with Robert Pattinson and the rest of the cast closer to the films release date.

You’ve been playing Edward for 4 years now, can you talk about the journey he’s taken through the series and also what that has been like for you personally?

Robert Pattinson: I think in the broadest terms about Edward’s journey, right from the beginning I took out, I just ignored the fact that he was a vampire and basically ignored the fact that he was 108 – except to kind of use for metaphorical purposes. Then you’re just left with a kind of troubled teenager, it’s a really simple story of him getting content with himself. He gets content by finding a woman and having a child which is I guess how a lot of troubled guys kind of balance themselves out. At least that’s the hope anyway (laughs).

This role, it’s presented a whole variety of obstacles in terms of trying to grow and figure out who you want to be. It’s like having a very complicated maze to go through, you’re also being propelled by some kind of jet as well and trying to figure out how to go through a maze at the same time (laughs). I still kind of feel like it hasn’t really slowed down, I’m still trying to figure out where I’m at. But it’s been fun, it’s totally bizarre to me. I’ve said it for years, I didn’t even know if I was going to continue acting before this happened, and now I have much more of a drive and passion for it than I ever did before.
