Redblog the official blog for Redbox has come up with what they consider to be the top 5 characters in the Twilight Saga that is not either Bella, Edward or Jacob. (**Note this is just the movies.**)
When I watched The Twilight Saga: Eclipse again after it came out on DVD, it hit me that almost all of my favorite scenes in the film series to-date involved characters OTHER than the three love-triangle leads. So I think it’s time to give a shout-out to the unsung heroes of the Twilight phenomenon.
Here’s who I consider to be the five best characters in the world of Forks (OK, six — ’cause there’s a tie for fifth place):
5. TIE! Mike Newton and Jessica Stanley – Bella’s friends provided the comic relief that was sorely needed in the first adaptation — and we all know that Anna Kendrick (Jessica) went on to make quite a name for herself in Up in the Air. I’m hoping for that same kind of break-out for Michael Welsh (Mike), whose illness during the “Face Punch” scene in New Moon totally stole the show (and, to me, was the second-best part about that movie… read on for the best). I sincerely hope we see a lot more of both Jessica and Mike in Breaking Dawn.
3. Rosalie Hale - It’s funny, because in the books I adored Alice Cullen, but I can’t stand her in the films. Conversely, I thought Rosalie was a whiny brat in the novels, but she very much grew on me in the movies — especially in Eclipse. Her heart-to-heart talk with Bella about the life she’ll be giving up to become a vampire — and that crazy Vengeful Bride flashback! — were highlights of the third film.
