Please bear in mind that no one will ever live up to your vision of Edward.
Pictures of Robert:Stephenie Meyer wrote:No human actor is pretty enough to really pull off a vampire. What we are hoping for here is that magical element of screen charisma that makes all the difference in the world. Example: Pirates of the Carribean. Were you drooling over pretty Orlando? I wasn't. I was taken with the drunk pirate in the eyeliner. Some actors can own any scene they're in. Let's not focus so much on the perfect face (which no one is going to be happy with regardless); let's hope for an inebriated pirate. I.e. someone who can own a scene like Johnny or Joaquin or Jonathan Rhys, someone who will make us forget he's not quite pretty enough to be a vampire.
Here's my wish: that, after we find out who is going to play Edward, my comments page is not awash with "I can't believe they picked HIM!"-s and "John Doe is the real Edward and no one else can do it!"-s and "I hate him! I want him to die!"-s. Can we give him a chance to become Edward? Can we let him try to convince us? I'm keeping my mind open.
