Stephenie Meyer’s vampire series featuring handsome Edward, the young vampire who steals the heart of innocent mortal Bella and subsequently puts her life and future in jeopardy has captured the world by storm. When the film version of the debut novel Twilight hit theaters in November of 2008, it surpassed critical and commercial projections by taking in more than seventy million dollars during it’s opening weekend. Kristen Stewart, who plays the lead role of Bella, is currently on the list of young Hollywood stars to keep an eye on. Although it appears that the success of Twilight plucked the young actress out of oblivion to make her a star, the truth is that this ambitious young woman has been working hard for years to achieve this level of success and attention. This article will offer some fun facts about this lovely and talented young actress.
The Birth Of “Bella.” Lovely Kristen Jaymes Stewart entered the world on April 9, 1990 in Los Angeles, California. Kristen has lived all of her life in the California city where the Entertainment business thrives. Loving family members and friends surely did not know what the future held in store for this bouncing baby girl when she made her debut on that Spring day in 1990.
Predestined Career? Kristen Stewart was raised in the world of Show Business which most certainly had an influence on what career this little girl would eventually become her livelihood. Her doting father was a stage manager and television producer while her Australian native mother was a talented scriptwriter. The Stewart family home was surely filled with actors and other heavyweights in the Entertainment industry while Kristen was growing up, which undoubtedly made a strong impression on the little girl.
Previous Film And Television Roles. Kristen Stewart’s resume at the tender age of eighteen rivals actors who are twice her age. She has appeared in Disney productions, the acclaimed television movie “Speak,” and several major motion pictures including “Panic Room” with Jodie Foster, “Cold Creek Manor” with Sharon Stone, and “In The Land Of Women” with Meg Ryan. Spending time with and developing her craft among these strong successful actresses surely provided the young actress with much inspiration and acting insights. Kristen also had roles in “Zathura” and “Into The Wild.”
In Her Downtime. When not hard at work on a movie set, Kristen enjoys surfing, like a true California girl, and music. She has a wide range of bands that she counts as her favorite including The Beatles, Nirvana, U2 and Green Day. Not only a listener of great music, Kristen also plays guitar, which surely helped her land the role of Joan Jett, the upcoming film about the rock and roll legend’s early days in the all girl group “The Runaways.” Kristen also looks forward to spending time with her family on her days off, which includes a brother named Cameron.
Romantic Life. Although she has been romantically linked to her “Twilight” costar, Robert Pattinson, Kristen is happily dating actor Michael Angarano.
With Kristen being already tapped to reprise her role as “Bella” in the future film adaptations of the Stephenie Meyer vampire series, as well as several other unrelated film projects, this young actress will likely be busy working for a long time to come.
