With the imminent release of the fifth and final installment of The Twilight Saga, Robert Pattinson talks about the difficulties of playing a super-hot vamp.
The actor, who first landed the part of Edward Cullen back in 2008, explains why he has not really been able to develop the character in ways people would expect.
"It's a strange character because there's not too many places to go," Rob told The San Francisco Chronicle.
"He's gonna be around forever, he can't die, can't get hurt, his emotions are quite fossilized as well. I think (series author Stephenie Meyer) mentioned this in a book: With vampires, once you start feeling one thing, it just stays like that for ages. Once he's fallen in love with Bella, that's it. There's no other place to go but worrying about her."
Although the 26-year-old was apprehensive about auditioning for the role of Edward incase he didn't live up to the 'perfection' expected from the character, he is now one of Hollywood's highest paid actors. And he has been in various other box office hits such as Water for Elephants and Cosmopolis.
But R-Pattz has explained how he couldn't really translate any of his new skills to his former, ongoing character, "Everything stayed the same; the audience stayed the same. Even doing interviews to promote each movie, you're literally asked the same questions as the first one. It doesn't happen with other movies. Even the fans, they had the same reaction to it. It's crazy, it's visceral, but it's the same. So it kind of exists in this bubble."
Breaking Dawn Part 2 is in cinemas on Friday and sees the epic finale in the franchise, as newlyweds Edward and Bella struggle to defend their family against the encroaching Volturi, who want to execute an extremely hostile takeover.
