A USA Today article looks at the busy careers of Rob, Kristen and Taylor during and after The Twilight Saga.
They’ve monopolized magazine covers and encouraged moviegoers around the world to spend more than $1 billion at the box office. Surely, the three young stars of the Twilight franchise —Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart— have earned a break in between big-screen installments of their supernatural saga.
Not if they desire careers that require more than just being a brooding vampire, a hard-bodied werewolf and the sulky girl who loves them. When it comes to life after multi-part blockbusters such as the Star Wars trilogies, opportunity often awaits. But so does type-casting, poor decision-making and outright rejection. Only a chosen few rise to Harrison Ford heights.
That might explain why each of the Twilight trio has at least one film coming long before the third outing based on Stephenie Meyer’s literary phenom, Eclipse, arrives June 30.
