Il regista del film Harry Potter e Il Calice di Fuoco, Mike Newell, menziona Robert Pattinson (che nello stesso film interpretava Cedric Diggory) in un’intervista. Newell definisce Rob come “un ragazzo dolce, pulito“, un “brillante vampiro“, e che all’epoca era “ovviamente, un buon acquisto per il film di Harry Potter“.
BTRC: You worked with Robert Pattinson before he was The Robert Pattinson, do you think you have an eye for talent?
MN: Erm, I don’t know if I do. He was obviously good for the movie, he looks like the kind of fighter pilot, the head boy who will go out into the trenches on his second day. He just had that thing. He’s a brilliant vampire! He’s really good, he’s a sweet guy, and he’s a clever guy, he’s not a dope at all!
