Robert Pattinson wanted to be an artist from an early age, first as a musician like his older sister Lizzy. It was his father who strongly encouraged him to take up acting. During a memorable evening for dinner with her father, the two found themselves sitting next to a group of girls who told Pattinson they’d just returned from the Barnes Theater Club, a well-known program at Harrodian School, outside of London.
Robert Pattinson first became known to the public for his role of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Shortly after, his turn as vampire Edward Cullen in Twilight catapulted him into a heartthrob.
Robert Thomas Pattinson was born on May 13, 1986 in London, England. Pattinson is the youngest of three children and the only child born to Robert and Clare Pattinson. As a child, her father ran a car import business and her mother worked for a modeling agency.
