Christian Marie Serratos got her start in entertainment even earlier than that, though, as she signed with the Ford Modeling Agency when she was just seven years old.

She is best known for her roles in The Twilight Series and AMC’s The Walking Dead television series, with her performance in the former even winning her the Young Supporting Actress Award at the 30th Young Artist Awards in 2009.

How She Was Cast in Twilight

Serratos was only 18-years-old at the time she starred in the first Twilight film. She landed the role of Angela Weber, a timid and shy classmate determined to befriend the main character, Bella Swan.

Weber is a supporting character in the story, as the bookish and kind-hearted girl helps to serve as Swan’s connection to the human world. Christian Serratos reprised her role for the following two sequels, although her character played a minor role.

According to MTV, Serratos had read the books before the film’s casting. She didn’t even know they were creating a movie off of it–she was purely a fan of the story and couldn’t put the books down.

The actress read the books with her mother, even fighting amongst themselves to read first since they only owned one copy of the story. She was obsessed, just like everyone else at the time, and eager to audition once she found out about the plans for the movie.

Initially, Christian Serratos was planning on auditioning for Jessica, another classmate and supporting character. She was even called back in a few times for the role before the production team asked her to audition for Angela Weber.

Serratos actually preferred this, as she realized while reading the books how much she came to admire and appreciate Weber’s character and personality.

She found that she resonated more with Angela and fell in love with how great a person she is. When the casting team told her she could audition for the different part, Serratos jumped on the opportunity.

To sell the part and impress the casting directors, Serratos switched up her look and transformed into the bookish Angela. She tied up her hair into a ponytail, put her glasses back on, and changed her demeanor to add to her performance.

Her audition must have been convincing, as she was subsequently cast as a main member of the film. Serratos was determined to envelop herself in her character and bring Angela to life.

She explained to MTV that she didn’t want to change Angela or inject her own personality into her acting, but instead give justice to her character’s good soul and kind-hearted demeanor as the author had created.

In the movie, she perfectly portrayed Angela Weber, providing a certain level of charm and kindness and allowing her character’s personality to shine even when not speaking.

Serratos proved that she could act and leave an impression on viewers, despite having limited dialogue and screen time. Fans loved her, critics praised her, and her career took off.
