When the Twilight movie saga hit theaters, it caused a huge wave of excitement for vampire entertainment lovers across-the-board. Seeing human beings falling in love with vampires tends to be one of the most complicated, intriguing love story scenarios of all time. In the Twilight saga, Bella Swan is a teenage girl who falls head-over-heels for Edward Cullen, a teenage vampire. In reality, Cullen is actually hundreds of years old and has existed for centuries; the age difference somehow isn’t the only factor adding to the chaotic confusion of their love story though. Besides Bella and Edward being centuries apart in age, there is also a messy love triangle with Jacob Black, the local werewolf. Here is everything you should know about the actors behind these roles and what they get up to years later.

After Twilight, Pattinson has been doing extremely well for himself. As one of the biggest movies coming out in 2022, Pattinson will be playing the titular role in The Batman, alongside Colin Farrell and Paul Dano.

Alice Cullen was portrayed by Ashley Greene in the Twilight saga. Her most recent project is the 2021 movie Aftermath which is considered a horror movie.

Instead, they realize that they must face off against the ghosts of their new humble abode. Greene has been married to her husband Paul Khoury since 2018.

No one else could have portrayed a vampire quite like Jasper Hill as amazingly as Jackson Rathbone. Since the Twilight franchise came to an end, some of his newer roles include Sampson, Mixtape, and The Wall of Mexico. He also starred in a show called Finding Carter from 2014 to 2015.

After Twilight ended, Reed starred in a few movies, including Empire State, A Sunday Horse, and In Your Eyes. The biggest TV show role was Rachel Swann in V Wars, which premiered in 2019 and starred her husband, Ian Somerhalder. Her marriage to Somerhalder was somewhat of a controversial conversation when they first tied the knot since he used to be in a relationship with his Vampire Diaries costar Nina Dobrev. At this point, there is no bad blood between any of the actors and they all get along just fine. Reed has been married to Somerhalder since 2015 and they share one child together so far. There isn’t any word on if they plan on having more children just yet.
