Director of the first Twilight film, Catherine Hardwicke, has joined Twitter! Her username is c_hardwicke.
I should also take this time to reiterate that Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner or Kristen Stewart are on Twitter. This is confirmed by multiple official sources. If you’re following someone who is claiming to be one of them, it’s a fake account. We will let you know right away if/when they do join!
While promoting ‘Red Riding Hood’ recently, Shiloh Fernandez chatted with Digital Spy and admitted he’s happy that he auditioned for Twilight because it led him to his role in ‘Red Riding Hood.’ For those of you who don’t know, Shiloh was close to snagging the role of Edward Cullen in Twilight before they cast Robert Pattinson.

A while back Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight Director) revealed that Shiloh Fernandez was a finalist to play the role of Edward Cullen in Twilight, before the role was ultimately given to Robert Pattinson. In his new interview with VMAN, Shiloh (now starring in Catherine Hardwicke’s ‘Red Riding Hood’) talked about the missed opportunity:
On missing out on the role of Edward Cullen:“No one had any idea what Twilight would become. At the time, it was just another audition. I didn’t realize I was missing out on stardom and giant paychecks. Now, looking back on it, I certainly wouldn’t have been mentally stable enough to deal with all that. Lucky for me, not getting that part led to other work that was a much better fit for me.”
On his experience working on Red Riding Hood: “To be given this great part with this very complicated backstory is such a learning experience. And [director Catherine Hardwicke] has created this world that’s so detailed and so beautiful. I loved being a part of it.”
On his ultimate aspirations:“I want to work and I want to become the best actor that I can be. But I also want to be a happy, interesting person. It’s hard to be an interesting person if you spend all your time on a set. That isn’t the real world. You’ve got to have a good life outside of all that. You’ve got to spend time in places where there’s not always someone on standby to bring you a glass of water.”
I’m still super excited to see Shiloh in ‘Red Riding Hood.’ Here are a couple more pics of the ‘almost–Edward.’ You can also see the article (above) bigger by clicking the thumb below:
