The world is a beautiful place, and no matter where you go, there’s always something amazing to see. Visiting famous cities like New York or Venice is always going to be breathtaking, but there are also so many hidden gems waiting to be discovered, someplace far from the crowds and the hustle and bustle. Traveling to other countries and experiencing their culture is what global exploration is all about, and who knows, one day you might even make a trip back home and discover that there’s a whole other side to your country that you never knew existed.

Getting back to the topic at hand, what is it that actor Robert Pattinson has done? It turns out that he’s done an incredible amount since his breakthrough role in the Harry Potter movie series. With over 25 years of experience, he now appears in high-profile films like The Water Diviner, The Lighthouse, and most recently, Birds of Prey (and the upcoming Dark Phoenix). He’s directed episodes of popular TV series like Doctor Who, and he’s also appeared in various films and shows such as Sex Education, Sherlock Holmes, and Love, Actually.

In fact, the list of projects that he’s done is impressive, and if we were to name a top ten, it would be easy to see why he’s such a popular choice for film roles. While some people may balk at the idea of breaking down a complete list of everything that the actor has done, we think that it’s a good idea because it’s always nice to know what other people in the industry are doing, and what skills they have to offer. So, let’s look back at everything that Robert Pattinson has done (and is still doing) and see how he’s managed to maintain such a high profile in Hollywood.

The Harry Potter Movies (2001-2011)

This may come as a bit of a shock, but the Harry Potter movie series wasn’t the first time that Robert Pattinson was recognized for his acting talent. Back in the early 2000s, the British actor was already a celebrity, and it was all down to his portrayal of a young wizard named Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter films. What’s remarkable about these movies is not only that they became some of the most popular films of all time, but that they also helped to solidify Robert Pattinson’s status as an important British actor.

For fans of the series, it was always going to be hard to see the character die in the final movie, but it’s great to see that his last moments on camera were as passionate and devoted as ever. Even more impressive is the way in which he evolved as an actor over the years, gradually growing into the role so well that it felt almost like he was inhabiting Cedric’s body. In a similar fashion to how he physically transformed for the part, it’s clear that Robert Pattinson made significant adjustments to his approach to acting, and it’s paid off in spades.

The History Channel (2014-present)

In addition to appearing in some of the biggest movies ever made, Robert Pattinson has also been busy hosting a TV show. For those who have yet to see him host an episode of the popular history TV series, the actor provides an entertaining voiceover as he illuminates significant historical events and people. Episodes include topics like Leonardo da Vinci and The Beatles, and each one is packed with intriguing anecdotes and fascinating information. If you’re an admirer of the English-speaking world’s favorite historical figures, you’ll certainly want to give this show a try.

The Twilight Movies (2008-2017)

Another massive success for Robert Pattinson is The Twilight Saga, a series of vampire romance movies based on the wildly popular novel of the same name. While the first Twilight film was fairly modest in scope, the third installment (Breaking Dawn – Part 2) was such a massive undertaking that it practically became a franchise in its own right. The film followed a dual story arc, opening with a wedding scene that featured the biggest cast ever assembled for a Hollywood movie and ending with the epic battle between good and evil that fans of the saga have come to expect.

Despite his hectic filming schedule, Robert Pattinson still found the time to attend the premiere of The Twilight Saga in Budapest, where he was presented with the Golden St. Georges award. Since then, he’s continued to appear in various scenes across all six movies, though he’s largely refrained from taking on major roles like he did in the Harry Potter series. Regardless, he’s still very much a part of the Twilight universe, and it would appear that he’s enjoying himself, making the most of his down time while also promoting the upcoming Dark Phoenix. It’s also worth noting that aside from his cinematic work, Robert Pattinson is also a prominent supporter of animal rights and is frequently seen at animal shelters, spaying and neutering animals as part of a larger campaign against animal cruelty.

Birds Of Prey

It was recently announced that the actor would be co-starring in the upcoming DC Extended Universe movie, Birds Of Prey. Based on the character from the comic books, the film will focus on Black Cat, a feline superheroine who teams up with the legendary superhero Batman to combat organized crime. The cast also includes Rosie Perez, Ewan McGregor, and John Leguizamo. While the role might not sound like something that would interest Robert Pattinson, he’s got a good thing going on, and it’s clear that he was immediately drawn to the project. It’s also good that he’s getting a change of pace, moving away from the big franchise films that he’s becoming so renowned for, and it will be interesting to see where this unexpected venture takes him.


One of the most interesting aspects of Robert Pattinson’s career is the way in which he’s managed to transcend Hollywood and emerge as a major player in the international film world. While he’s certainly accomplished a lot in his professional life and continues to push boundaries as an actor and director, it’s clear that he still regards acting as a hobby rather than a career. That said, it would appear that he’s having a blast, and it’s good to see that he’s still committed to continuing to evolve as an actor. Most recently, he lent his voice to the character of Celine in the animated feature Celine and Lancelot, which marked his third collaboration with director Gauthier Destombes. In the film, he plays a knight who teams up with an animated version of the legendary King Arthur to save Camelot from an invasion by a group of monsters.

For fans of the Arthurian legend, it’s exciting to see that Robert Pattinson is continuing to immerse himself in these worlds, and it’s impressive to see how committed he remains to continuing to develop as an actor. Even more so, it’s great to see that he’s still committed to working alongside talented French directors, something that he did not always do at the beginning of his career. Without a doubt, these are interesting times to be a part of, and it’s clear that we’re seeing the beginning of a new wave of exciting talent that was seemingly born out of the success of Harry Potter and The Twilight Saga.
