About the TWILIGHT film series
The TWILIGHT film series stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson and tells the story of 17-year-old Bella Swan who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington to live with her father, and becomes drawn to Edward Cullen, a pale, mysterious classmate who seems determined to push her away. But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together…even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires.  The action-packed, modern day vampire love story TWILIGHT, the first film in the series, was released in theatres on November 21, 2008 to a blockbuster reception.

    i would rather switch tanya and kate

    the girl who is going to play kate looks better for the role of tanya

    and the girl that plays tanya for kate

  • Holly

    oh my gosh i totally i agree with you. i was thinking the exact same thing as soon as i saw them.

  • Em_YKTwi

    okay….. MyAnna Buring better dye her hair strawberry blonde

  • Team_Rosalie

    Took the words outta my mouth, it would be soooo much better!

    Is it just me, or did anyone else imagine Eleazer as an old guy? I totally did (not sure why)

    Carmen – LOVE IT
    Irina – Very good
    Kate – Good
    Tanya – OK
    Eleazer – I don't think he is the best choice, I imagined him a bit different. But I guess with vampire makeup he'll look different.

  • Franchesca 333

    That is exactly what I thought! I saw him in like his late 30's early 40's a little chunky and really wise looking with an olive tone…..He doesn't look like Eleazer to me at all really.

  • Norita_26_7

    I thought the same!

  • Maria_A

    I thought the same thing! I was about to check the part of the book where he is described because I imagined him older too and maybe I read something wrong, idk.
    But we would need to see him with make up on. If I had seen a pic of micheal sheen before playing Aro, I would have never thought he could play him. Maybe this is the same case.

  • anson :D

    oh, i have imagined them a lot differently. I just thought kate would be like, Katy Perry.

  • loverpatzz

    yeah me too, thought the same :)

  • loverpatzz

    yeah me too, thought the same :)

  • loverpatzz

    I think that Christian Camargo is totally how i imagined Eleazer, so very good!
    And Carmen is also great!

  • Wendy Hearts Edward

    YES — switch TANYA and KATE!!!!!!! As soon as I saw “Kate's” pic, I was like “oh wow, they did a REALLY good job casting Tanya” … but then I looked over at the character/actress name and was like “Wait, what? Why?? She already has the strawberry blonde hair and she's gorgeous (Bella would/should definitely be jealous!). When I saw the REAL “Tanya”, I just shook my head :

    And YES again — I always pictured Eleazer much “older”, like a father-figure type guy. Maybe because he mentioned that he was part of the Volturi and Aro is a bit “older” looking than the Cullens???

    Either way — SWITCH KATE AND TANYA!!!!!!!! lol

  • Chela madison

    Yay I'm happy =)!

  • RobNKris90

    Carmen is beautiful, but Tanya looks too blonde, no red hair highlights at all?!

  • SlowLife

    I totally agree! The girl playing Kate looks more like a “strawberry blonde”. Oh well, I hope they atleast dye her hair…

  • Csijunkie15

    WHERE IS GARRETT?!?!?!?!?!

  • http://twitter.com/xuXFirefliesXux Christine Marzan

    i pictured tanya very…….different

  • sam19

    nice job

  • SeraLovette.

    I imagined Tanya as gorgeous, A tinged red-blonde hair, sort of curly, tall, slim figure, heart shaped face,delicate / icy features but somehow still very … warm looking (? I couldn't think of the word, I was like, draw blank. LOL) And I think Eleazar was a good match to how he was in my head. I really want to see how Garrett comes out, and Liam and Siobhan? All of them, more like it. hahaha. :)

  • tabby:)

    definitely, but i can kind of imagine that guy playing him

  • tabby:)

    anyone else think that the girl playing kate looks alot like rachel lefevre who played victoria?
    its really strange how much they look alike

  • http://twitter.com/ReeDawes Rhianna Dawes

    yeah, I imagined him quite older and a bit podgy, I think I need to read it again =S

  • Rizam

    i dont like Eleazer n Tanya =S

  • Kim

    I totally agree wth you :) I thought the same thing.

  • Haleypeifer3

    I don't like the person playing Tanya, but everyone else is fine. I imagined Tanya to look WAAAAAY different.


    I think Rachael McAdams would have done better in Tanya's case. She has beautiful strawberry blonde hair and looks kind of like how Stephanie descrobed Tanya. I don't think that was the best they could do but the rest are great. OHHHHH maybe Kate and Tanya's actresses should switch roles.That is a good idea as well.

  • Kay&Krinkels

    love the cast they are all beautiful

  • Nerak

    yo = comparto su opinión me imagine de otro modo a Tania, y Eleazar

  • Sbittner319

    That's exactly what I thought! Tanya is supposed to be gorgeous. So gorgeous that everyone thought Edward should be with her. No offense to that actress, but she isn't anywhere near Rob Pattinson's league. They should definitely switch them.

  • Mizz Renesmee Black

    I absolutely agree with you! But I didn't think that would be who I would pick to play Elezar
