Most people would probably say EDWARD!! or Jacob or Bella but my favourite character is Alice (even though im totally in love with Edward). Was just wandering who everyone prefers and why???
Defo Edward! Well he's just so lovely isn't he?
Edward of course!!! He is timeless...he is a dream come true, and he is a version of reality, he is a nightmare and a fantasy. He can be anything you want him to be, the ultimate gentleman, the bad boy, the perfect lover, the dramatic hero, the emo suffering musician and poet and on and on.
This character has the ability to tap into your imagination at so many levels because Stephanie Meyers has left so much unsaid or fades to black in pivotal moments, so it's your imagination that fills in the gaps, and he can be different every time you read the books, he is an outline created by SM and we as the readers are the ones that fill in the behind the scenes detail to suit ourselves.
Lets face it the books are from Bella's POV and there is so much that goes on with Edward that she is not privy to, just as he can't read her mind she has no insight into his, so he is ours to make of what we want.
I Love the character in the books and then in the movies that gorgeous man Robert Pattinson always hints that there is more to Edward than is written. The depth of his character in the films remains unexplored and what is more fascinating than a mysterious romantic figure played to perfection by Rob, despite the limitations of screenplays that have at times been flat.
Rob has afforded us the rare opportunity (at least to me) to put a face and body to a beloved character, he has translated the written word into a voice and a style that suits my imagination. Fortunately for Rob he can peel Edward off at the end of the day and move on to other roles and if his fans are truly his fans they will NOT allow him to be defined by his role as Edward Cullen...he is essentially a 21st century Renaissance man, multi talented, concerned more about what he creates than fame or fortune, ferociously loyal to friends and family, selfless and generous and furiously private... hey maybe he does have some Edward like qualities.
