How the Twilight cast should look like
In Twilight, Stephenie Meyer paid much attention to describe details and cinematic iterations. She had to do it in a perfect way to make fans happy. There are some of the characters came to the movie with the same outlook as the book. However, some other characters are unrecognizable.
To make this statement clear, our Photoshop team did some works. We want to prove how the film sometimes made things right. However, sometimes it forgot some important character’s features. In addition, we also provide illustrations and Bella’s comments for them. We also give marks for the film’s portray compared to book’s portray. Here is how the cast of Twilight should become compared to the book story.
Bella’s thoughts on the “Adonis” of Edward Cullen unchanged during the Twilight series. Meyer undoubtedly tried to draw his crooked smile, burning golden eyes, and dazzling beauty. The casting of Robert Pattinson was higher than just his striking appearance. But, that aspect was typically important. This man has a deep impression on every reader’s standards since was good enough. On the other hand, his wardrobe within this series. Don’t you see the sweatshirt in Eclipse? Robert also had the Cullen’s gloomy complexion. This combination is deep eye shadows and chestnut-colored hair. However, Robert still should dress to the nines, younger, and thinner than the movie.
Bella’s take: The last was less bulky, lanky, with untidy, bronze-colored hair. Robert was more ‘boyish’ than the other guys. He was very handsome. He looked like he could shoot a commercial just for hair gel. His face was very friendly. He always has a slight smile on his flawless lips. However, his eyesight was careful. His eyes had a different color: strange ocher and it was darker than butterscotch. Notably, it still kept the same golden tone.
Forks High grade: 6/10. To say, the filmmakers would live up to the character’s beauty. They tried to follow the story’s description due to the lofty set. However, the Robsession following Pattinson’s role proved he was not anything to intimidate.
Unlike other Twilight characters, Jacob Black carried a stunning transformation throughout the series. In the film, he rose from a likable kid to a chiseled man-child. His skin covered with russet fur (wolf form). Taylor Lautner’s muscular improved to fit that growth spurt on the horizontal plane. However, he never gained the oppressed attitude of his literary counterpart.
Bella’s take: Jacob looked like he was fourteen or fifteen. He had long and glossy black hair. He pulled back his hair with a rubber band behind his neck. His skin was silky and beautiful. It had a russet color. His eyes were dark and deep above the planes of his cheekbones. He still had a small hint of kid left around his chin. Finally, he flashed a very lovely face with a brilliant smile.
Forks High grade: 7/10. Regardless of height, he had the physique and flashy grin. They matched with the book. Eventually, the huge wig was an essential evil.
The good doctor-slash-vampire head looks – Carlisle Cullen – was totally wrong. Peter Facinelli was much older than the character’s age in the book. In the books, the character could pass his 20s. However, Facinelli was 35 when he first played this role. In fact, Meyer wanted then-20-something for Henry Cavill in this section.
Bella’s take: He was a young man. He had blond hair. Of course, he was more handsome rather than any movie star I have ever seen before. He was pale and tired-looking because of the circles under his eyes.
Forks High grade: 5/10. The age point was totally not suitable, and also the mixed-British accent of Facinelli.
Jane was a character that was totally not the same as the book’s description. Dakota Fanning was not as tiny as written. Her blonde locks were not the same as the story version. With this appearance, she made people confuse with her terror twin – Alec (Cameron Bright).
Bella’s take: I guessed it was a young boy. Dakota was tiny like Alice, with pale, lank, and short brown hair. The body under the cloak was androgynous and slim. However, her face was too pretty compared to a boy. The full-lipped and wide-eyed face could make a Botticelli angel become a gargoyle. Her size was so unimportant. The reaction to her appearance made me unintelligible.
Forks High grade: 4/10. The grin was right. But, what was with the spoken “pain” line whereas she delivered her mind attack?
Charlie Swan was not exactly the same as Billy Burke creating him on-screen. However, it somehow matched the character. To describe, his kind brown eyes and general exterior were the same as the story required. If he also owns the curly hair, it will be perfect.
Bella’s take: When Charlie smiles, his brown eyes crinkle. When I see it, I immediately know why he and my mother jumped quickly into a marriage. Before I know him, the young romantic he did in those days faded. His curly brown hair, which had a similar color to mine, dwindled. Therefore, it revealed the bright skin of his forehead. When he smiled, I could see a man’s feature who ran away with Renée. By that time, she was just 2 years older than me.
Forks High grade: 8/10 — Many Rainier votes this.
Who would not want an animated Alice Cullen? Bella’s BFF was jovial and short. Ashley Greene took the role of this character. She had the same keen eye as in the books. Her hair, age, and height threw a lot of fans for confusion since she hardly acted as the character’s pixie. Ashley could pass for 17. She certainly was not as thin and fragile as the reader’s imagination.
Bella’s take: Alice’s short and inky hair in a halo of disorder around her beautiful elfin face. Her gracefulness shined even in her stillness.
Forks High grade: 7/10. While her attitude and personalities were meticulous, she still had some differences.
Michael Sheen’s Twihard daughter had some trouble when picturing him as Aro. Although his character had hair, he was still a bald vampire in the eye of many fans. If you compare his creation to the books, it was pretty accurate.
Bella’s take: I could not conclude whether his face was beautiful or not. I assume that all the features were excellent. However, he was different from the vampires beside him. His skin was white and delicate (onion skin). That type of skin was in contrast to his long black hair. I felt weird when touching his cheek. I aimed to see if it was softer than Alice’s hair or Edward’s hair. Or, somehow, if it was dusty like chalk. His eyes were red like other vampires around him. Nevertheless, his eye color was milky and clouded. Sometimes, I wondered if the haze could affect negatively to his vision.
Forks High grade: 8/10. There was nearly nothing missing here. But, the fans thought he should have a less noticeable hairline and older.
The casting of Kristen Stewart was Bella Swan. This clumsy human had a chance to meet the sleepy town destiny. This point was considerable, especially when she had dark hair skin and eyes. However, from movie 3, her wig was not good enough and several choco contact lenses. She was spindly and pale. These characteristics were as awkward as descriptions.
Bella’s take: I think I should be sporty, tan, and blond. I expect I would look like a cheerleader or a volleyball player. However, my skin was an ivory color, without even the excuse of red hair or blue eyes. I was always soft and slender. Obviously, I was not similar to an athlete. My skin was very clear and almost transparent-looking. But, it all depended on the color.
Forks High grade: 9/10. The character had an excessive sigh aside and lip-biting. This portrait was nearly accurate as it should be.
This warm and pretty vampire mom – Esme – was the low-key one toward the Cullen family in both the books and film. Elizabeth Reaser portrayed this character. She fitted the small, round, honey-haired mother we knew and loved in writing. Although her hair color did not become darken in later movie series.
Bella’s take: She had a similar beautiful feature. She owned billows of a soft, heart-shaped face, and caramel-colored hair. They reminded people of the silent-movie era’s ingénues. She was tiny, slender, more rounded, and less angular than other people.
Forks High grade: 9/10. This woman looked like the part in the first settlement with those hot roller waves. Besides that, she was also huggable in the film series. When the film conducted, her soft and round shapes of the books began to disappear. Moreover, she got quite far from the tawny lock of hair that she should have.
The second-most difficult-to-display character of the Twilight was Rosalie Hale. This character ranked behind the ultra-swoony Edward, of course. The runway-ready female’s bark was extremely worse than her bite. When Bella met her, she was extraordinarily gorgeous and also frightening. Nikki Reed carried the beautiful and confident blonde hair to suit her role. However, there were a lot of complaints of readers over the casting choice.
Bella’s take: The tall one would resemble a statue. This woman owned a beautiful appearance. She is the kind of woman you may see on the Sports Illustrated swimsuit’s cover page. She is the type of woman that makes every girl take a hit on her self-respect by being in a similar room. Her hair was golden. It gracefully waves to the middle of her back.
Forks High grade: 7/10. Reed was a strikingly beautiful woman. But was she a famous gorgeous model?
This one was a big mistake from the beginning. Meyer herself received some verbal abuse from many fans for Renesmee. They did that for a reason, of course. Firstly, it was the irregular nomenclature of the half human & vampire kid of Bella and Edward. She should have a full set of teeth in her babyhood. She eventually should have a strange skin effect under the sunlight. Instead, she owned the signature Cullen sparkles and lots of rainbow glitters. Secondly, her strong rapid growth made it fully absurd. It was like some major CGI work turned Mackenzie Foy into the rapidly aging hybrid. Notably, when her face covered with a baby’s face, it then became extremely unusual.
Bella’s take: A thick layer of bloody, matted curls covered her entire head. Her eyeballs were a chocolate brown color. When covering with blood, her skin was nearly pale with creamy ivory. Meanwhile, her tiny face was absolutely wonderful. To be honest, it really stunned me. Moreover, it had to say that her beauty was more recognizable rather than her father. How unbelievable it is! That amazing face suddenly smiled. I can see it was a wide and deliberate smile. Finally, behind her shell-pink lips was full snowy milk set of teeth.
Forks High grade: 4/10. We have to admit that this one was really difficult to pull off. In child performance, Foy was an acceptable combination of Pattinson and Stewart. However, in the baby shape, some of the effects were completely irrelevant to look at. The good news is that the baby form contributed a short part in the final film.
In this film, there were 2 versions of Victoria. The first was Rachelle Lefevre. Then, the second was Bryce Dallas Howard. Both of them handle the role of the nomad woman scorned, in the Twilight series films. Fortunately, they were nearly the same as the original description in the book. Her bright red bloody eyes might not be too dangerous in either form. On the other hand, her hair certainly looked like a flame fitting the bill. Also, her default crouch kept constant as well. However, she found it difficult to become the crazy catlike lady she should have been.
Bella’s take: This woman was wild. Her eyes always move restlessly between the men who face her. Her fiery hair flew in the slight breeze. And her appearance was sly like a cat.
Forks High grade: 6/10. Both versions built the character’s catlike and killing-shape reputation in the books. However, the important thing is missing. It was her animalistic factor.
Jamie Campbell Bower’s white artificial hairpiece was exact to the Caius portray (New Moon). When filmmakers changed the strawberry blonde for Breaking Dawn, it then became more natural. Nevertheless, it was not compatible with the book description. Bower also did not introduce himself to be as decrepit and aged as his literary order.
Bella’s take: The other’s face was resentful under the snow-white hair. They had the same shade as his face, which rubbed against his shoulders. Their faces had paper-thin skin.
Forks High grade: 7/10. For New Moon, the look was on point as it should be. However, Breaking Dawn’s hair and wanness face decreased his rating down.
The Cullens’ northern cousins and the Alaskan coven from Denali was Tanya’s role. Tanya was a vampire whose strawberry blonde hair was not suitable at all. The vegetarian vampire raised major competition for Bella. She preferred Edward for a potential mate. If he responded to the interest, she would make a visual match using his breathtaking looks. Myanna Buring’s hair in Breaking Dawn was less reddish-blonde rather than prediction. However, she was a valuable pick for the jealousy-inducing role.
Bella’s take: I have to confess that I held my breath as the vampire in front of Tanya. The strawberry tint in her blond curls tried to hug Edward. Tanya was nearly my worst nightmares. She looked at me with a speculative eye. Then, she got out and took my hand.
Forks High grade: 7/10. A dead gorgeous alive in both forms. However, she made less domineering and competitive in the movies compared to the books.
