Daniel Radcliffe Talks Again About Rob Pattinson and Twilight


As he spoke to a group of rowdy fans at the 92Y series Broadway Talks in Manhattan this week (in case you didn't know, we thought you should hear), Daniel Radcliffe revealed some interesting insights he's had since finishing up the Harry Potter franchise.


And it isn't just that Radcliffe is so over his wand and scar, it's that any actor who put on those trademark glassed was bound to be a huge star:


"Harry Potter was a phenomenon when I was 7-years-old, that's when [the book] came out; it was a phenomenon before I was even remotely attached," Radcliffe explained to MovieLine.


"The reason I say [that anyone who played him would have become famous] is I was speaking to the director of the first Twilight film, and she said she went to a reading of the books Stephenie Meyer was giving of the first Twilight book. This was before Robert Pattinson was cast. And she said the name Edward Cullen, and the audience went crazy at the name."

I agree with Daniel. It's the character's appeal that brought in all of the book's fans at first. Maybe not with the people who first saw the movie. I also think that if Kristen was not cast as Bella, then someone else could have played him. It's the chemistry that draws people in. 

@Ivy Masen, I think if Harry Potter was real then Dan would be a wizard and not a witch... Ahem.

I'll admit if Rob didn't get the role I wouldn't really care about him. It's not that I wouldn't like him, I know he's not Edward and I can remember drooling over him while whatching HP4, but I'd have no idea who he is! I liked Twilight because of a lot of reasons, not because the actor is hot (which he is and I love all the cast)

I might love the actors, but not because they're in Twilight, I only KNOW them because they're in Twilight. 

And I would still love Twilight even if I didn't like the main actor because I like the books anyway
