'Twilight' Author Originally Wanted These Actors to Star as Edward, Bella & More!

Author Stephenie Meyer wrote the Twilight book series and a blog post she wrote from 2007 recently resurfaced with her original choices to play the title characters in the movies!

Back in 2007, before the first movie was made, Stephenie wrote on her blog, “My opinions on the movie matter to no one. I have no influence on what goes on with the movie at all. No one is going to ask who I think should star in Twilight.”

So basically, Stephenie‘s opinions on who should be cast weren’t taken into consideration.

Twilight hit theaters in 2018 and starred Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.

    Except for Emily the cast is so much better as it is, sorry Steph, the filmmakers knew what they were doing. And Kris wasn’t so bad, either. It made the movies successful.

    She’s pretty opinionated. Catherine wanted a more ethnic cast of vampires but Stephanie nixed that because it’s not the way she dreamed it. I think Stephanie was eventually pleased with the outcome.
