What is the film about?

The film Twilight directed by Catherine Hardwicke is about a girl named Isabella Swan (Bella) who moves from Phoenix to live with her father in Forks. Bella does not expect too much from Forks as it is dull and rains almost every day. However her world begins to change when she meets the dark and mysterious Edward Cullen – a boy who is hiding a dark secret: he is a Vampire.

As their worlds and hearts collide, Edward must battle the bloodlust raging inside him as well as a growing collective of undead that plan to make Bella their prey. This film is based on the no1 best selling sensation by Stephanie Meyer. Twilight adds a dangerous twist to the classic story of star-crossed lovers.

Meet the characters


Who Am I?

Bella (Kristen Stewart) is the main character in the film. She moves to Forks and is instantly welcomed into the community. Her world is turned upside down when she meets the Cullens and discovers their secret.

Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) is one of Dr Cullen’s adopted children. He appears to be a loner and only converses with his adopted family. This all changes when he meets Bella. Can he keep his dark secret from Bella and keep her safe?

Charlie Swan is Bella’s father. He is the local representative of Forks Constabulary. Charlie is a man of very few words and likes his routines. He does not really enjoy the attention that Edward is showing in Bella.

Dr Carlisle Cullen is Edward’s adoptive father and Forks top surgeon. He is a very caring and protective character. He advises and keeps his family on the ‘vegetarian’ route.

Alice Cullen is Dr Cullen’s adopted daughter. She has the ability to see into the future but her sightings are subjective and can change. She saw Bella coming into the Cullen’s lives and has predicted that Bella will become one of them...

Rosalie Hale is Dr Cullen’s other adopted daughter. Rosalie takes an instant dislike to Bella and does not want Edward endangering all the Cullens by falling in love with a human (Bella).

Emmett Cullen is Dr Cullen’s adopted son. He is also the love of Rosalie Hale. Emmett appears to welcome Bella and Edward’s relationship much to the distaste of Rosalie.

Jasper Hale is the latest edition to the Cullen clan. He struggles with his thirst and appears worried that he will attack Bella. He is romantically linked with Alice and she reassures him that he will not hurt Bella.

Esme Cullen is the wife of Dr Cullen and the adoptive mother of the Cullen clan. She is a warm and caring character who gladly accepts Bella and Edward’s relationship.

Jacob Black is the son of wheelchair bound Quileute, Billy Black. Jacob has a past connection with Bella as they were friends as children. His clan are claimed to be sworn enemies of the Cullen clan. He has a soft spot for Bella but Bella is in love with someone else.

James is one of the bad vamps who have been killing locals and worrying the Cullen’s. He is attracted to the smell of Bella and Edward’s reaction makes James want her all the more. He is a tracker and will not give up until he has Bella.

Victoria is James’ lover. She has been killing locals and is one of the bad vamps. After the Cullens kill James she makes it her duty to stalk and kill Edward and Bella.

Laurent is one of the bad vamps but his alliances change when the Cullen’s confront him. Instead he warns Edward of James’ plan and his tracking abilities.

Edward and Bella – The young lovers.
