    "Peter Facinelli plays Carlisle, the compassionate captain of the Cullen clan. He started out on the other end of the high school movie spectrum, breaking through as Mike, the popular jock, in 1998's "Can't Hardly Wait." Considering that Facinelli hasn't seemed to age at all in the last decade, maybe he is actually a vampire." — mitzijani

    "Robert Pattinson has been the romantic fixation of seemingly every tween girl in the country, thanks to his turn as Edward Cullen, cinema's dreamiest vampire. Though Pattinson's first appearance was in a deleted scene in Mira Nair's "Vanity Fair" (which can be seen on DVD), his role as Cedric Diggory in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" put him on the map." — mitzijani

    "Anna Kendrick plays Jessica, Bella's only normal friend. While Jessica is jealous of all the attention Mike Newton is giving to Bella, Anna has no reason to be envious of all the attention the press is heaping on Kristen Stewart. While previous to "Twilight" Kendrick only appeared in a couple of movies like "Rocket Science," she stars opposite George Clooney "Up In The Air"" — mitzijani

    "Nikki Reed plays what has to be one of the most daunting roles in the biz -- Rosalie Hale is described in the book as the most beautiful woman in the world. Fans freaked out, arguing that the brunette Reed couldn't possible play the blonde Hale. But Reed has been through a lot worse than a little Internet sniping. She got her start in the business as the actor and co-writer of "Thirteen," which was directed by "Twilight" helmer Catherine Hardwicke. The movie -- about a teen who spirals into drug abuse -- was reportedly drawn directly from Reed's own troubled youth." — mitzijani

    "Dakota Fanning was a bone-fide star well before appearing in the "Twilight" franchise. She first garnered attention for her role opposite Sean Penn in 2001's "I Am Sam" at the tender age of eight. Her performance was so strong that she was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award, the youngest actress ever to get a nod. Since then, she has become one of the hottest child stars in Hollywood, starring in "Man on Fire," "War of the Worlds," and "Charlotte's Web."" — mitzijani

    "Cameron Bright plays Alec, a highly-ranked guard in the Volturi coven who has super psychic skills. Like his co-star and on-screen twin sister Dakota Fanning, Bright had plenty of credits before becoming a vampire. He starred opposite Nicole Kidman in 2004's "Birth" when he was ten years old. On the strength of that role, he landed parts in "Thank You for Smoking," "Godsend," and played the mutant Leech in "X-Men: The Last Stand."" — mitzijani

    "Michael Sheen might have been nominated for a slew of acting awards and was even made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire, but "Twilight" fans might consider his performance as Aro, the alpha vampire of the Volturi, as the apex of his career. Of course, Sheen is no stranger to playing otherworldly characters: his first major movie role was as the Lycan leader Lucian in the "Underworld" series." — mitzijani
