In the August Issue of Portrait, a UK mag, their search for this years Top 30 Under 30 was hugely succesful. They have an an ASTOUNDING 120 000+ votes, up to the last hour of voting. The mag said that they were hanging onto the edge of their seats to see who would take out the coveted #1 position. The voting took over two months and it was a battle between fandoms as fans loyally supported their favourite nominees. And guess what Twilighters out there, the cast of Twilight took the No. 1 Place. Yay. Although Harry Potter fans should also rejoice since two of their cast made it into top 5, Emma Watson who plays Hermione Granger and Bonnie Wright as Ginny Weasley in No. 4 and 5 respectively. The attention being given to Twilight Cast was short of phenomenal and the movie is still months away… As Portrait Mag said when they described them:
“1. Move Over Harry Potter: Cast of Twilight
Robert Pattison (Edward Cullen – May 13, 1986 ), Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan – April 9, 1990), Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen – February 21, 1987), Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black – February 11, 1992), Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale – December 21, 1984), Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale – May 17, 1988), Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen – March 15, 1985), Michael Welch (Mike Newton – July 25, 1987), Christian Serratos (Angela Webber – September 21, 1990), Anna Kendrick (Jessica Stanley – August 9, 1985), Justin Chon (Eric Yorkie) Cam Gigadent (James – August 16, 1982), Rachelle Lefevre (Victoria – February 1, 1979), Edi Gathegi (Laurent – March 10, 1979).
We knew that Twilight was going to be BIG but we never realised just how big this novel-turned-movie would become! Despite the fact that the film isn’t realised until December, there is so much anticipation for this movie to come out that it’s bound to give the Harry Potter franchise a run for its money and you’ll soon all be going “Harry Who?” For months now, this talented cast have been the centre of attention with everyone intrigued and wanting to know more about them. Twilight fans are definitely loyal – just one week into voting the cast of Twilight had already taken out 44% of the votes! It’s probably no surprise that they’ve come out on top in the end. And if you thought the fan base was big now, just wait until this modern day vampire love story actually hits cinemas and the rest of the world becomes enraptured with it – the fan base will surely multiply even more!”
