Remember When: RPattz Was in Harry Potter?

Celebuzz / March 1, 2009

While the epic vampire romance flick Twilight hurtled Robert Pattinson into a fame-and-fortune frenzy, the British actor has been around for quite some time!

His earliest fans remember his role as Cedric Diggory in two seperate Harry Potter flicks: 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and 2007’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. He ultimately fell to his death at the hands of Lord Voldemort (damn him!), but that didn’t stopped him from becoming one of today’s biggest heart-throbs!

While his role wasn’t huge, his star power instantly attracted millions of fans across the world. And those millions? They have formed into insane, Pattinson-crazy legions! And, yeah, it’s only going to get worse with New Moon’s release in the not-so-distant future.

Check out this clip:

What does Pattinson say about his transition from wizards to vampires? He has explained that playing Edward is “more substantial…mainly because the entire thing is based on Edward’s character and who he is. He is very tortured and conflicted, which is very different from what I played in ‘Harry Potter.’ But it’s a completely different style of book.”

Please chime in with your own thoughts about RPattz in Harry Potter! Do you like him in this fantasy world, or do you prefer him as Edward in Twilight?
