Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, play one of the most iconic couples in movie history, Bella and Edward, in the 'Twilight Saga' but co-star Erik Odom claims the couple are “iconic” even without the movies and the success of the movie is down to their chemistry.
There might have been rumours the couple were on the rocks, but according to their co-star, Erik Odom Rob and Kristen's romance probably even eclipsed the success of the franchise that made them famous and confessed the couple were “sweet together,” during filming.
Odom, who played a supporting role in 'Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2' released last November, claimed in an interview, despite being huge stars Rob and Kristen were “down to earth” on set.
“Meeting them, I was surprised at how down-to-earth they were. It was sweet to watch them together on set,” he told the Oakland Press.
“Just talking to them,” he went on, made him realise, “how smart Kristen is for how young she is.”
Praising Kristen he went on: “She’s just so intelligent and I can see how she’s had a full career at such a young age.
“She has the mind of a director. I wouldn’t be surprised to see, as she gets older, her transitioning into her own films because she has such a strong voice on set.”
Adding: “She had such a strong vision of where she wanted to take Bella and she takes her there. You see it in ‘Part 2’ when she comes into her own as a vampire.”
Rob and Kristen started dating after filming the second movie in the saga, 'New Moon' and the actor credits the couple's chemistry as the real driving power behind the success of the vampire saga, which came to an end last year.
“(The filmmakers) really got it right with Kristen and Rob as far as the casting went,” he went on.
“There’s been such an overlap of how iconic the characters are, but also how iconic Kristen and Rob are — both on their own. When together, it became bigger than anyone could’ve imagined.”
With the end of 'Twilight' the couple will have to make more of an effort to see each other as they work on separate movies. Rob has been in Australia for the last few weeks filming new movie 'The Rover' with insiders claiming Kristen is “counting down the minutes,” until he returns.
