The Robert Pattinson-Harry Potter Family Fight
Pop culture has seen two franchises rise to prominence: one that follows a girl with magical abilities as she navigates life; and the other, which explores teenage romance. Both shows have achieved enormous popularity, with passionate fandoms that extend far beyond their intended audiences.
Harry Potter and Twilight are two franchises that share similarities, yet also distinct differences that make comparing them difficult. Fans of either series seek fantasy that offers an escape from reality; however, they also have differing expectations regarding what such stories should be like.
The Twilight Saga is a young adult series that follows Bella Swan, an oracle named Bella, as she attempts to navigate a world filled with wolves, werewolves, and vampires. Additionally, Bella falls in love with Edward Cullen – the lead vampire and love interest.
At the start of The Twilight Saga, Robert Pattinson was an unknown actor. But as his role as Edward Cullen developed in the series, his name became synonymous with it. Since then he’s played roles in films and television including Tarzan, Extraction, Speed Kills and What Men Want.
He has also appeared as a supporting actor on television shows such as Revolution, Chicago P.D., Zoo and Major Crimes. Since then he has made several films like The Expendables 3 and Extraction; additionally he has had recurring roles on several other shows.
Due to their diverse fandoms, the actors behind these characters have often had difficulty working together. Indeed, Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson even got into an argument while filming a Harry Potter movie that resulted in them giving each other the silent treatment for days.
Despite their differences, they remain close friends. In fact, they even have a child together!
