Make it a Movie Monday (11) The Twilight Saga
This meme is a way to discuss the books that have made their way to film, or to talk about the books we wish would be made into a movie. You are open to talk about any book out there in any way that you want, as long as you discuss the book as if it were a MOVIE. For more info about how to include your own Make it a Movie Monday (MiaMM) on your blog, click here.
This week my meme will focus on The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. Now that all four (er, five) movies have been filmed, and the final chapter will be released this November, we’ve seen how Stephenie’s stories have come to life on film. For better or worse, when we see “The End” later this year, it really will be THE END… For now. (Who knows, right?)
After seeing both Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in the roles of Bella and Edward, I can’t help but wonder who else could have just as easily played the star-crossed pair. Who would I have play Bella and Edward? Check it out:
Lily Collins – Yes, the actress who will soon be playing the role of Clary in The Immortal Instruments movies by Cassandra Clare. She would have been my favorite Bella, as well. Not that I don’t think Kristen did well. (Actually, don’t ask me that…)
Lily was born in Guildford, Surrey, England, and is the daughter of English musician Phil Collins, and his second wife, Jill Tavelman. Her mother is American. She was Sandra Bullock’s daughter in The Blind Side, played opposite of Taylor Lautner in Abduction and was Snow White in Mirror, Mirror. But her biggest role yet will be in The City of Bones, the first film adaptation of the New York Times bestselling The Mortal Instruments novels by Cassandra Clare, playing sixteen-year-old Clary Fray.
Chace Crawford – Chace has the charismatic looks and timeless appeal that I initially imagined for Edward as I was reading Twilight. Robert Pattinson pulls off Edward better than I thought he would, but…
Chace currently portrays Nate Archibald on the CW television drama Gossip Girl. He has also been cast to star along with Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez in What To Expect When You’re Expecting. Chace has also starred in numerous independent films, such as the recent movie Twelve and Peace, Love and Misunderstanding. He’s still waiting for his big film break, as you can see… Too bad his break didn’t come through with the role of Edward.
