Despite the huge Twilight following prior to the movies, Pattinson admitted that before his audition for the lead role of Edward Cullen, he knew very little about the vampire saga.

“I'd been unemployed for ages, and when I came to Los Angeles all the casting directors would ask what I'd been doing for the past few years. I'd say, 'Oh, I was at RADA' - if you've got an English accent you can get away with it. I'd say I went to Oxford, too.
