I don’t know about you guys, but I’m totally adoring Rob Pattinson these days. He’s currently filming the highly anticipated Twilight film franchise in Spain and I’ve got a feeling he’s not planning on leaving anytime soon.

We’ve been following Rob’s career ever since he played Cedric in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire back in 2005. We’ve always been huge fans of his and we were super excited when he decided to team up with Harry Potter mastermind J.K. Rowling for her highly anticipated Harry Potter and the Cursed Child book. It was one of the few times she’s ever collaborated with anyone and it’s safe to say the results were incredible. If you haven’t read it yet, don’t hesitate—it’s one of the best Harry Potter books ever written and it’s definitely worth a read. Even if you’ve read all of Rowling’s other Harry Potter novels, go back and read Cursed Child for the surprising twist that it brings. As an added bonus, Rowling even dedicated a chapter to explaining exactly how all of this is going to play out in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film series.

Nowadays, Rob Pattinson is working on the highly anticipated Lost City of Z, a film adaptation of the Max Arthur book. Max Arthur is an explorer who gets trapped in the Amazon jungle with his son Joe and two other men. The movie is actually based on a true story and it looks like a fascinating exploration of man’s voracious greed and the damage it can cause. Luckily for us, we aren’t going to have to wait too long to see it. It starts filming next month in South America and it’s set to be released in 2018.

Another incredible collaboration happened when it was announced that Charlie and the Chocolate Factory creator Leo Walter Verou would be adapting JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them for the big screen. The two of them have previously collaborated on the 2008 film adaption of Verou’s children’s book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, so we know they are capable of bringing some incredible films to life. They recently finished principal photography on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and the final product looks amazingly realistic. If you’ve never read the book, go ahead and order it now—Rowling has stated that it’s one of the best works she’s ever written and it’s definitely worth a read. As a kid, I read it every single year and my family and I always refer to the book when it’s time for Halloween decorations. It will be released on November 16, 2017.

A Beautiful Person

Aside from his acting career, Rob also spends a lot of time working on the charity he co-founded with wife Isabella, The R.Pattinson Foundation. The foundation focuses on supporting homeless and disadvantaged youth and their families. Since its inception, the foundation has granted nearly £350,000 in cash and kind donations to various good causes. When asked about his work with The R.Pattinson Foundation, Rob has said “I think the best way for me to help is to just be as genuine as possible and to be a positive presence in people’s lives. No one expects an ex-rock star turned actor to be an angel but I think it’s important to have as many positive experiences as possible when helping others.”

Despite his busy schedule, Rob finds time to make appearances at various fundraisers and other charity events to help support the homeless and underprivileged. In 2015, he was even involved in a car accident that almost left him paralyzed. Luckily, he suffered only physical pain and he was able to continue working. He also reached out to various charities for help after the accident, including Ronald McDonald House, which provided him with a personalized phone call each week from inside their London home. He continues to work hard to make a difference in this world even as his career takes off. We can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for Rob Pattinson.
