Since her breakthrough in the teen vampire film “Twilight,” Kristen Stewart has worked on both indie films and big-budget ones. However, she’s still best known for her role as Isabella “Bella” Swan in The Twilight Saga.

On November 16, 2007, Summit Entertainment announced that Stewart would play the main character in the films based on the four novels by author Stephenie Meyer.

“Well, I basically cast him,” Stewart shared in an interview with Vanity Fair in November 2008 about casting her co-star Robert Pattinson. The English actor was 21 while filming the first Twilight film. Robert Douglas Thomas Pattinson turned 22 on May 13, 2008.

“We did one day of auditions and a bunch of guys came in. Catherine Hardwicke, the director, afterwards was like, ‘What do you think? This is such a hard choice.’ I was like, ‘Are you kidding me!? It’s such an obvious choice!’ It couldn’t have been better. It was sort of perfect,” Stewart said about her fellow Twilight castmate, Pattison.

Filming for the second film in The Twilight Saga film series, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, began in March 2009 in Vancouver. Kristen turned 19 on April 9, 2009. Some scenes were filmed in the Italian hill town of Montepulciano from May 25 through the 29 of the same year.

The final installment in The Twilight Saga film series, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, was released on November 16, 2012, when Kristen was 22-years-old.

In Jaunaruy 2016, Kristen Stewart had been under the radar for a while. Once a household name thanks to her “Twilight” role, the actress had been laying low and taking smaller roles in lesser-known flicks.

The then 25-year-old was uncharacteristically all smiles and giggles on the red carpet of the 2016 New York Film Critics Circle Awards at TAO Downtown, right before she received the Best Supporting Actress Awards for her work on “Clouds of Sils Maria.”

The “Twilight” star wore a leather-and-lace matching skirt and top, which she paired with pearl-embellished heels. Her entire look was from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2016 collection.

The actress was handpicked by Karl Lagerfeld to represent the French fashion house, which explains why Kristen turned up in head-to-toe Chanel.

Kristen was asked how she felt about the award, and she stated that it was “the icing on the cake.”
