'The Studio Advised Against It'

When it comes to creating a believable on-screen romance, casting leads who have chemistry is of vital importance. Casting Twilight was no exception to this rule, especially since the core of the film centered around the love story between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. But chemistry was something that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart had in spades from the very beginning. In fact, Catherine Hardwicke (who directed Twilight) shared that it was palpable from the very first time the pair met.

‘Twilight’ director, Catherine Hardwicke, got to cast most of the actors in the film

Because nobody was expecting Twilight to be such a success, Hardwicke was practically given carte blanche in the casting process for the film. She quickly brought Stewart on board to play the vampire-obsessed teen. However, casting the perfect Edward was a little more difficult. There were several contenders who she brought in to audition with Stewart. But it was clear, early on, that the Spencer star had tangible chemistry with Pattinson.
