Robert Pattinson and Emile Deravin met on the set of the upcoming film, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and although they had not planned on falling in love, their relationship quickly blossomed.
The British actor, who is currently starring in the movie as Edward Cullen, met the Frenchwoman while working on the film in New Orleans, Louisiana. They had originally planned to just spend the day together on set, but after several hours of shooting, decided to continue their collaboration and ended up spending the entire night in each other’s arms. Fans of the Twilight series will remember that Edward Cullen is described as being very protective of his family and friends, which made him an ideal boyfriend for Emile.
Since then, they have been inseparable, and have spent many happy hours together with the Twilight family. Edward has even changed the names of several of his characters to more appropriately reflect Emile’s nationality: Jasper to Espie, and Laurent to Léa. It is no secret that the couple are very much in love, and their fans have been treated to beautiful photos of their intimate moments together.
The actors began their professional collaboration in 2013, and since then have starred in four movies together: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the upcoming The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, and the animated movies, The Guardians of the Galaxy and The Legend of Tarzan. In addition to acting in the films, they have also been photographed together numerous times, and their romance has attracted global media attention.
On the Set of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is the first movie in the series to be set in the United Kingdom, and marks a significant change in both story and location for the franchise. While Stephenie Meyer’s book was primarily set in Colorado, the filming will take place across England, with a notable amount of outdoor shooting in Scotland.
The change in scenery allowed the production to go bigger and bolder with their designs, and to utilize more colors and patterns. Fans of the Twilight Saga will notice that there is a significant amount of green screen (background replacement) in the movie, and that the design team worked hard to bring life to the landscape of northern England.
In addition to the visual allure of the movie, the production will feature some prominent British cameos, including Harry Potter star, James Potter. James’ character is revealed to be dating Emile’s character, Léa, and it is said that the two will wed at the end of the movie.
The Making of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is the first in the series to be shot entirely in 4K. The jump to 4K meant that the film crew were able to capture more details in the scenery, and to utilize more sophisticated camera tricks to hide imperfections in the final product. Additionally, shooting in 4K allows for more flexibility when it comes to post-production, as digital editing and special effects are easier to implement at this level.
The biggest challenge for the director, Bill Watt, was keeping down the number of close-ups in the movie. With so many scenes set in Edward’s lair, there was a lot of temptation to linger on the intimate moments between him and Bella.
Outsiders Take Note
While most of the attention on social media has been focused on the Twilight Saga, other A-list stars have been paying close attention to the couple’s relationship, and have noted how unusual it is to find a celebrity couple that has managed to stay together for so long. The publicity around The Twilight Saga has made it a benchmark for similar relationships, and celebrities have been sharing their own stories of how they resisted the temptation to cheat and stayed together.
The creator of Candy Crush, Rovio, (which is valued at over $15 billion) watched the Twilight series online and was so enthralled that he immediately contacted the couple’s publicist and offered them a Candy Crush game. The game’s lead designer, Alexandr Kipman, proposed that they make the game centered around their relationship, and the couple accepted.
The game was a huge success, and as a result, new opportunities opened up for Robert and Emile, who began appearing in commercials and sponsored content for the product. Although Alexander and the team at Rovio are keeping the gameplay of the game the same, they have introduced a relationship-themed addition to it: Fortune Teller. The new feature allows players to ask the question, “Will you be together in 5 years?” and, based on the answer, they are presented with a series of scenarios depicting the couple’s future.
The Future Of The Twilight Saga
While the future of The Twilight Saga is still shrouded in secrecy, Bill Watt has confirmed that he is already working on the scripts for its two sequels, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and Breaking Dawn – Part 2. He also said that the story for the next movie will be based on the popular Penny Pineapple Lemonade merchandise from Pringles Fresh and will be set in Hawaii.
In addition to the two sequels, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is set to be the last chapter in the story of the Twilight Saga, with author Stephenie Meyer hinting that she has one more installment left in her series. Eclipse is expected to be released in December of this year, and although the ending of the story is still a tightly guarded secret, we may already know the details of how it will end.
