Saying Goodbye To Edward...

In a recent interview with the Chicago Sun Times, Rob talks about his new film Water for Elephants and of course he can never escape the questions circling around the final installments of The Twilight Saga. According to some reports filming is finishing up this week and then it will be time for Rob to say good-bye to the character that sky-rocketed him to fame.

Rob talks about how leaving Edward behind is almost like a break-up and even though he hates those irritating contacts, he is going to miss being the hottest vamp in the world. Leaving Twilight behind him is a huge step and he is now being giving all sorts of tremendous opportunities that may have not been presented to him without playing the role of Edward.
“It’s been amazing to play the same character through so many adventures. And it’s so strange because my life has changed so much over these years, but ‘Twilight’ and Edward Cullen will always be a part of me. It’s been my whole life. My whole 20s,” he says. “And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
He goes on to talk about filming Water for Elephants and keeping in tune with all of his other interviews, he sings praises of Tai (the elephant), who he fell completely in love with the first day he met her. I think this film was exactly what Rob needed to branch out. He absolutely loved it!

Some interviews over the past few weeks have pegged Rob as being "tired" of the whole Twilight scene and somewhat unappreciative, but this interview is the Rob we all came to love. Just a guy playing a role and still in shock of how big it has really made him. I think people confuse eager to move forward with being "bored" with the franchise. He knows Twilight laid the groundwork for his career and now it is just up to him to show us what he is going to do with it.

Saying good-bye to Edward? Yeah, I am not so sure I like the sound of that. I can remember when they cast Rob for Edward...it was such a HUGE deal. No one thought he was Edward. There were even petitions! Seriously, looking at where the franchise is now, could you imagine anyone else playing him?

  6. If he completes the Twilight-saga, he might as well do as he wants.
    But if he quits being Edward and a new one comes in, I get pissed.
