The Cast Of Twilight Looks A Lot Different Today


Kristen Stewart

She'd made movies before the saga, but Stewart became an international superstar overnight by starring in “Twilight.” She quickly landed leading roles in films like “The Runaways,” before making the switch to critically-acclaimed indie films like “Camp X-Ray” and “Lizzie,” although she still does some blockbusters as well.

Robert Pattinson

Like Stewart, Pattinson found success soon after starring in “Twilight,” landing major roles in “Remember Me” and “Water for Elephants.” In recent years, he has won acclaim for wildly different roles in films like “Good Time” and “The King,” and he is set to play the title character in “The Batman.”

Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick had a small supporting role in “Twilight” as Jessica Stanley, a high school student who happily brings Bella into the fold, and her career really took off with an Oscar-nominated turn in “Up in the Air” in 2009. In the years since, she has starred in films like “Pitch Perfect” and “A Simple Favor,” and she also lent her voice to “Trolls.”

Kellan Lutz

In “Twilight,” Lutz played Emmett Cullen, Edward's buff and lovable adopted brother. HIs success led to appearances in a few horror movies and the “Expendables” franchise, before he made the switch to TV and starred on the “FBI” spin-off “FBI: Most Wanted.”

Billy Burke

Burke had a small but memorable supporting role in the franchise as Bella’s protective father, Charlie, and he has worked steadily in film and TV in the years since. He has played a recurring antagonist on “The Closer,” the father of the title character in “Red Riding Hood,” a leading role on “Revolution,” and a lot more.

Taylor Lautner

Like his co-stars, Taylor Lautner was thrust into the spotlight immediately following “Twilight,” but he had more trouble finding good roles, with movies like “Abduction” and “Tracers” being panned. However, Lautner has now found success on TV, with leading roles on “Cuckoo” and “Scream Queens.”

Jackson Rathbone

In the years immediately following Jackson Rathbone's appearance in the first “Twilight” film as Jasper Hale, he kept busy with roles in “Dread, “Hurt,” and “The Last Airbender.” Recently, he won acclaim for his performance in “The Wall of Mexico,” and he also briefly fronted the band 100 Monkeys, before leaving to start a family.

Ashley Greene

Ashley Greene was a fan favorite in the “Twilight” saga for her bubbly and charismatic portrayal of Alice Cullen. Shortly after the first Twilight film, she starred in “Skateland,” and she went on to appear in various films, as well as star on the police procedural “Rogue.”

Peter Facinelli

Peter Facinelli played family patriarch Carlisle Cullen in the “Twilight” franchise, and he is also known for his role as the charismatic Dr. Fitch Cooper on “Nurse Jackie.” In addition, he has appeared on “Glee” and “American Odyssey,” as well as doing some writing and producing.

Nikki Reed

Before appearing in the “Twilight” films, Nikki Reed made her first appearance on the big screen in Catherine Hardwicke's “Thirteen,” which she co-wrote. In the years since, she has started a family and founded her own sustainable jewelry brand, BaYou With Love.

Elizabeth Reaser

Elizabeth Reaser played Cullen matriarch Esme in the “Twilight” series, and she has kept busy in the years since, including a starring role on the short-lived show “The Ex List.” Horror fans will know her from the Netflix series “The Haunting of Hill House,” where she played eldest daughter Shirley.

Gil Birmingham

Gil Birmingham had a small role in the first “Twilight” film as Billy Black, Jacob's father and Charlie's best friend, but his role expanded as the series went on. In the years since, Birmingham has appeared in films like “Hell or High Water" and “Wind River,” and on TV shows like “Yellowstone” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”
