Twilight Facts

  • Kristen Stewart has naturally green eyes. She wears brown contacts for filming because Bella is supposed to have brown eyes.
  • Kellan Lutz intended on keeping his natural curly hair for the role of Emmett Cullen. However, his previous role in _”Generation Kill” (2008) (mini)_ required a buzz cut and his hair didn’t grow fast enough for the filming of Twilight.
  • Henry Cavill was Stephenie Meyer‘s first choice to play Edward, but by the time the film came to be, he was 25 years old, and no longer looked the part of a 17-year old. He was then offered the part of Carlisle Cullen but turned it down due to his commitment with ‘The Tudors’
  • For the role of Edward Cullen, Robert Pattinson flew from England to director Catherine Hardwicke‘s house to audition. There, he and Kristen Stewart, who was already cast as Bella Swan, rehearsed the “Love Scene”/”Meadow Scene” on Hardwicke’s own bed.
  • All of the actors playing the Cullens wear topaz-colored contacts.
  • Over 5,000 actors auditioned for the role of Edward.
  • The script was finished in 6 weeks.
  • Robert Pattinson stated in an interview that this is his first American role and he had no formal training to perfect his American accent.
  • Stephenie Meyer will make a cameo in the Twilight movie. She has no lines but can be seen in a scene when Bella and Charlie go out to dinner in Forks.
  • Since Kristen Stewart was a minor during most of the filming she wore hair pieces so they didn’t have to waste time doing her hair, and therefore had more time to shoot.
  • Kristen Stewart turned eighteen while filming the movie and was rewarded with a birthday cake – and a full night of shooting.
  • The actors who played vampires needed to be pale, so it was written into their contracts that they had to stay out of the sun.
  • Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale) learned how to play baseball left-handed for the famous baseball scene.
  • Stephenie Meyer cited the band Linkin Park as her source of inspiration to write her books that the band themselves provided a song for the film’s soundtrack.
  • Stephenie Meyer acknowledges other authors that partially inspired her. One in particular was J.K. Rowling of the Harry Potter book/film series. Coincidentally, actor Robert Pattinson starred in one of the Harry Potter films.
