Robert Pattinson was born in London, England on September 25th, 1986. He grew up in Norfolk, England and began acting at a young age, spending his childhood performing around the neighbourhood and on the amateur circuit. He started taking classes at the Royal Academy of DramaticArt in London and was mentored by future Academy Award winner Peter Morgan. At age 15, he decided to leave home and moved to L.A. to pursue his dream of becoming an actor. Although he didn’t immediately land a role, he spent the next few years working on his craft, appearing in guest spots on TV shows like ‘Smallville’ and learning from some of Hollywood’s greatest. It wasn’t until 2008 that he finally got his big break, when he was cast in the lead role of James Bond in the film ‘Never Say Never Again’. Not only did he nail the role, but he also turned heads for his physical resemblance to the Bond character. Since then, he’s appeared in several more Bond films including ‘Spectre’, where he was again compared to Bond, albeit unfavorably. He’s also had roles in hit TV shows like ‘Downton Abbey’ and ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, as well as appearing in major films like ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ and ‘The Birth of a Nation’. It’s no wonder why so many people have recognized his talent – he’s certainly mastered the art of mesmerizing an audience with his acting!
It’s been a good year for Robert Pattinson, as he’s appeared in some incredible films and landed some major roles. And now, he’s in the running to become one of Hollywood’s greatest. Since his break-out year, he’s appeared in several more films including Terrence Malick’s ‘A Hidden Life’ and Michel Hazanavicius’ ‘RubberBand’. In addition to his acting career, he’s also lent his voice to several films, including Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ and Woody Allen’s ‘A Rainy Day in New York’. Furthermore, he’s been a major part of several major campaigns, including Nike’s ‘Take More Pictures’ and Samsung’s ‘Shot on the Go’ – both of which he designed. It seems that everything’s going according to plan for Mr. Pattinson and he’s well on his way to becoming one of Hollywood’s greatest!
Oscars Nominees & Predictions
Once you’ve heard of an actor, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ll see their work. Thanks to the success of the ‘Harry Potter’ films and the subsequent generation of films and merchandise, J.K. Rowling’s magical world is now part of mainstream culture. As a result, the world of Harry Potter is now a whole other universe, inhabited by interesting and lively characters, one of which is Robert Pattinson. It’s a veritable cornucopia of opportunities for the talented young actor and he’s been taking full advantage, appearing in several major films in 2017, including ‘Good Time’ and ‘The Lost Baby’ – both of which will be making their World Premiere at the Oscars this year. And while we’re on the subject of ‘The Lost Baby’, it’s worth pointing out that not only was it co-produced by J.K. Rowling’s Touchstone Pictures and Dimension Films, but it was also based on a true story. The script was written by J.K. Rowling and Stephen J. America and it’s the latest film adaptation of her bestselling ‘Potter’ series. It’s no wonder why Mr. Pattinson landed such a vital role in the film, given his affinity for J.K. Rowling’s books!
As we pointed out above, many of this year’s Oscar contenders were discovered thanks to the ‘Harry Potter’ films and the subsequent generation of ‘Potter’ spin-offs. While some may herald this as purely good fortune, it’s also a testament to the enduring popularity of J.K. Rowling’s magical world. And while we’re on the subject of the ‘Potter’ films, it’s worth pointing out that they’ve become something of an institution – the movies are such a significant part of contemporary culture that even those who haven’t read the books know exactly what they are. As a result, it’s likely that even those who haven’t seen a single one of the films will still know all the main characters and be able to spot them on the red carpet!
This is particularly relevant to consider if you’re one of the millions of people who’ve seen all the ‘Harry Potter’ films multiple times. While many will be seeing them for the first time since their initial blockbuster release, the charm of the films is how familiar they remain. And that’s even truer for the actors who’ve played a key role in the story. It’s always interesting to see how the actors’ characters evolve over the course of the series, particularly when you consider that in the fifth film, Ron Weasley will be older than the other characters, including his own father! With numerous Oscars categories, it’s sure to be a memorable night for fans and those who love good entertainment!
