If it is in The Batman that Robert Pattinson has shone in recent weeks, the British actor already had a long career behind him before donning the cape and the mask of Bruce Wayne. One of the iconic roles that has marked his life is and will always be that of Edward Cullen, the scintillating vampire of Twilight, the saga adapted from the books by Stephenie Meyer. On the occasion of the broadcast of Twilight, chapter 1: Fascination this Monday, April 11 at 9:05 p.m. on W9, Closer offers you a little return in images on the evolution of the actor who has changed a lot between his roles as Cédric Diggory in Harry Potter and Edward in Twilight and that of Batman.

One of the first roles is that of Hufflepuff Cédric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, in which he is unfortunately killed by Voldemort. Then 19 years old, Robert Pattinson is already cracking the public thanks to his little crooked smile and a mop of hair effect “disheveled” that he will keep for a long time. It was at the age of 21 that he took on the role that would introduce him to the international scene and which would make him the embodiment of the true phenomenon of the 2010s: vampires. In his role as Edward Cullen, Robert Pattinson has a well-groomed appearance, shiny skin and an ever-devastating smile. The interpretation of a permanently frustrated character showed him looking rather frozen and restrained, and it was only a few years later, thanks to other roles, that the young Briton was able to show the scope of his talent and the performances of which he is capable.

From a twinkling-skinned teenager to a man in the shadows

After a few films between dramas and romances which followed the production of Twilight, Robert Pattinson turned to independent films, including one which particularly marked the critics: The Lighthouse, a black and white film in which he plays alongside Willem Dafoe. Strange, embarrassing, surprising… The physical transformation of Robert Pattinson for his role of Ephraim Winslow was at the height of the interpretation of his very… particular character. Yet after appearing slimmed down, aged by a mustache, and more sullen than ever, Robert Pattinson made a blockbuster comeback thanks to Christopher Nolan and Tenet, which paved the way for another blockbuster. By brilliantly embodying a young Bruce Wayne all in muscles in Matt Reeves’ film, Robert Pattison has once again proven his impressive capacity for transformation for each of his roles.
