Robert Pattinson is the British actor that played as Edward Cullen in the Twilight series. He played in Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse. It has been confirmed that he will be returning as Edward in Breaking Dawn.
Pattinson stated that he did not have much knowledge on the books when he had went to audition for the part. He went into it thinking that it was a vampire film that was being directed by Catherine HardWicke.
He plays the piano in one scene during the movie. During the original movie takes he played his own improvisations. Later, the scene was re-shot with him playing the ever so popular “Bella’s Lullaby. This was composed by Carter Burwell. Originally, Catherine Hardwicke has asked Robert to compose the song for him, but he refused, because it was not his thing. Two of his original songs, which he made before Twilight came out, has appeared on the soundtrack.
He has told us that he is not the athletic type. So, what about the baseball scene in the movie? No, he did not enjoy it.
