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

It’s been exactly 11 years ago today since Twilight was released in theaters and we’re giving fans a bit of a treat today.

Author Stephenie Meyer, who wrote the Twilight book series, shared a blog post she wrote from 2007 that has recently resurfaced with her original actor and actress 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 on November 21, 2008 and starred Kristen Stewart as Bella and Robert Pattinson as Edward.
