The Cast of ‘Twilight’: Then and Now


Can you believe it’s already been over eight years since the last Twilight film came out? Neither can I. And while you might be vaguely aware of what stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been up to since then, I bet you might have less of clue what the rest of the Cullens have been up to since Breaking Dawn-Part 2 came out in late 2012.

If that’s true, read on!

Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan)

You probably had never heard of K Stew before 2008, but after that? She was everywhere! After a fairly messy breakup with beau Robert Pattinson, Stewart’s career seemed to rebound just fine. Recently, she was in the Oscar-nominated Still Alice with Julianne Moore. In 2015, she appeared in the film Equals with Nicholas Hoult and Guy Pearce. She can currently be seen on the big screen in Woody Allen’s Café Society.

Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen)

After finishing up the Twilight franchise, Pattinson took some time off from acting. Even since returning, he’s stayed away from any blockbuster material, going for small (read: serious), indie parts instead.We did see him in a few stunning Dior advertisements though. In 2015, we saw him in Life and The Childhood of a Leader.

Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen)

After playing the big, dumb brother in the Twilight franchise, Kellan Lutz was in Java Heat with Mickey Rourke, who he worked with previously in Immortals. Lutz is signed with Ford Models, which landed him his 2010 Calvin Klein campaign. In 2014 he was in The Legend of Hercules, but sadly it was a box office and commercial failure. That same year he was also in The Expendables 3. Now, we can find him on the TV show Bullseye. He made headlines in 2015 after accepting a bullied teen’s prom proposal.

Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale)

Before she played the tortured and bitchy Rosalie, Nikki Reed worked with director Catherine Hardwicke on Thirteen. After playing Rosalie, the actress has made headlines mostly for her marriage to Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder. Though rumors of divorce persist, so do thoughts that her upcoming stint on TVD could be their saving grace.

Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen)

Not a star before the Twilight films, Ashley hasn’t stepped back into the spotlight since either. She’s doing some voice-over work now, lending her lovely voice to the video game Batman: Arkham Knight. She also still hangs out with her Cullen family, recently reuniting with her “brother” Emmett. Her future projects are: In Dubious Battle, Urge, and Max & Me.

Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale)

Apparently an empath on and off screen, Rathbone is a honorary board member for Little Kids Rock, a non-profit organization that looks to restore and revitalize music education in disadvantaged U.S. public schools. His upcoming work includes: The Concerto with Pretty Little Liars star Janel Parrish, Pali Road, and City of Dead Men.
