Robert Pattinson Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

London-born Robert Pattinson found his acting niche almost instantly, kicking off his career with a string of fantasy roles. After catching the acting bug through amateur theater, the young thespian made his first film appearance at the age of 18, appearing in 2004's Dark Kingdom: The Dragon King, based on a Nordic legend. He followed this up by joining the Harry Potter franchise the following year, playing Cedric Diggory in Goblet of Fire, as well as the subsequent movies. Having captured the hearts of many young fantasy fans, Pattison then signed on to play the dreamy vampire heartthrob Edward in the film adaptation of the young-adult novel Twilight. A franchise already adored by legions of tween fans, the ensuing series of films, 2009's New Moon, 2010's Eclipse, 2011's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, and 2012's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, would make Pattinson a household name, but the actor would continue to add other films to his roster simultaneously, starring in the tearjerker Remember Me in 2010, and the 1930's period film Water for Elephants in 2011. 2012 turned into a busy year for the popular heartthrob as he starred in Bel Ami, worked for David Cronenberg in Cosmopolis, and marked the end of the films that made him a household name with the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
