There are many things and I’m curious what you guys say did it for you…one of the things I love about RP is his jaw line. That seems like such a silly thing but he has such a strong jaw…and chiseled cheekbones. Stephenie described Edward so much as being a marble sculpture and a carving of Adonis….Edward clenching his jaw…kissing along the jaw…etc etc. Lots of jaw fixation going on in the series. I always imagined Edward to have a prominent jaw line and I think Robert nailed that…even though that was merely genetics. I find myself drawn to the jaw. What else made Robert the best Edward? Physically and/or emotionally?

P.S. this is my first blog and I’m excited to join the community. I think my non-twilight reading friends are tiring of me and I need an outlet…twifans is perfect as I’ve been a daily (hourly???) reader for a month now…time to take the plunge and fully embrace my obsession. I know I’m amongst virtual friends who understand :-)

Welcome to the obsessed with twilight site LOL!! My friends are all sick of me too! They just don't understand :) Any way i think that what did it for me is that Rob is Edward, Emotionally in the movie i really felt like he loved Bella in the protective way that he should. And Physically he is AMAZING, but really it was his crooked smile that leaves me in shock everytime he laughs :) -Sigh- i love it!!

I totally understand how you feel. I was driving the people in my life CRAZY over Twilight. No worries here. We all love Twilight so obsess away,lol! I think Rob is great as Edward (emotionally) because he really seems conflicted over the situation with Bella. Physically Rob is great because he is BEAUTIFUL! I also think that Rob has so many similarities to Edward that it was a natural fit. I cannot picture anyone else as Edward.

I think its because roberts such a quiet, subtle actor. He manages to make even the smallest things - smiles, looks - carry lots of meaning.

And he's just classically beautiful, that face is never going to go out of style! :)

I just joined yesterday--though I've been haunting this sight for awhile :)--I'm glad I did because now I don't have to bore my hubby with my obsession. LOL I think Rob is the perfect Edward because he carries everything that Edward was to me in the book with perfection--devistatingly handsome, mysterious, frightening when he needs to be, haunted, ecompassed by his love for Bella. It believed him as Edward and it seems to me that Rob did all he could to become Edward, which tells me that he cared about this role. I wouldn't want anyone playing a character in my favorite series ever unless they gave their all to be that character. ~Mel

Rob gives Edward emotional depth. He brings Edward's inner tumult that we got a taste of in the "Midnight Sun" manuscript, and can do a furrowed brow like nobody's business.

He has the right body--wiry and muscular but not like Kellan/Emmett--and tall and lean. He is a musician like Edward, and he has elegant, long piano player fingers like Edward. He has the grin that so irritated Bella in "Twilight", and he does things with his mouth that are distinctly vampire-y. I can't imagine anyone else pulling it off, but maybe because I saw Rob as Edward before I read the books. I was pre-disposed to loving him in the role.

I agree about Rob. He totally fits the description of Edward. I hope they let him sing to Bella as Edward does in the books. He sings her to sleep and Rob has a wonderful voice. I have seen some of his other acting in other roles and I find him to be a dedicated actor and very good. I believe he has a long career ahead of him.

I love this site to I drive everyone (including my daughter who is a fan) around me crazy with my twilight obsession (my nickname at work is Twilight). I think Rob's smile and his eyes are what did it for me, he just really nailed the Edward smile and he to expression so much with his eyes.
