The Twilight Impulse

My thoughts and impressions of the Twilight Saga, written by the fabulous Stephenie Meyer


Hey, I'm a massive Twilight Fan, and thanks to my friends being fed up with having to listern to my non-stop chattering about Twilight, i decided to create a blog for myself to just vent and document my twilight obsession!! I'm current studying journalism and have aspiration to become one, so why not write about something as awesome as the Twilight Saga!!

Nikki Reed as Rosalie

I know that some people have issues with Nikki Reed being cast as Rosalie, as they don't think she is pretty enough, and only got the role because she has been friends with Catherine Hardwicke essentially her entire life. Well, for starters, Rosalie is supposed to be the most beautiful woman in the world. That is impossible to live up to. Nobody is perfect, everyone has flaws, so no matter which actress got the role, some people wouldn't be happy with her. Everyone has a different view of Rosalie is their heads, anyway. It must be very scary and intimidating knowing that there are millions of fans worldwide who are obsessed with these books and characters, and you have been cast as Rosalie, who is the personification of beauty. That would be very hard, because Nikki feels like it's a difficult character to live up to and doesnt want to disappoint any of the fans. Personally, i love Nikki. She is very sweet, mature, intelligent and talented. She is an amazing actress. She literally blew me away with her performance is thirteen! Wow, and to think that is the first film she has ever acted in. She portrayed an amazing Rosalie too. She got the "bitch" death glares down perfect, and just had this hostility about the way she looked at Bella. Which is great, because in real life, her and Kristen are like, best friends. So, to be able to do that even though you love Kristen, shows her talent. Besides, none of the actors fit their characters perfectly. Ashley Greene for example! Alice is 4 foot something, whereas Ashley is wayy taller. The casting directors did the best that they could with the actors which tried out. It just so happens, that Nikki Reed was the best Rosalie that would be able to convey her correctly. Also, with this Catherine hired her because they are friends. It doesn't exactly work that way. Although the director has some input into the decision. There are the casting directors, producers and Summit, also have to approve of who is cast, because it is their film. Seriously, people need to get of Nikki Reed's back saying that she isn't skinny enough, or not pretty enough to play Rosalie. Nikki didn't do anything to deserve such harsh criticism. It's an adaptation of the books, so they are going to get everything as close as they can and it isnt always going to be perfect. But in a film, some things do need to change. It's a fact. Please, leave Nikki alone, and give her a chance. She was barely in Twilight anyway. I hope after seeing her speech at the end of New Moon, that she sways some people with her undeniable talent.
