Amber - I have to say that for me, Twilight came first. I'd never heard the name Robert Pattinson until the day he was announced as cast for the role of Edward on Stephenie Meyer's website. After a quick search through his photos on imdb, I was convinced. (Go easy on me peeps, I didn't read Harry Potter until last year. But I quickly fell in love with Cedric in the books, and then, of course, the movie.) I have since become very familiar with and hooked on Rob's work outside of Twilight. While I love the saga dearly, I cannot wait to see him extend himself even more as he branches out into other projects.
Eimear - I think for me Rob came first. I was aware of him as I am from the UK and he was one of those actor's whose name was always out there from Harry Potter. I was a HUGE Harry Potter fan as well and read all the books as they were released. With Twilight I was a little later to the game, i heard about the movie and that spurred me to read the book which then pushed me to actually see the movie. I loved 'Remember Me' but I am actually really excited to see 'Bel Ami' and 'Water for Elephants' as i think they will really showcase Rob's talent. Happy Birthday Rob - hope you have a great day!
RaShell - Oh,
