Biography

An exceptionally poised young film actress with a knack for challenging roles as troubled adolescents, Kristen Stewart got her big break playing Jodie Foster's daughter in David Fincher's hot-wired thriller, "Panic Room" (2002). As the teen's profile rose over the following years, Stewart consistently impressed audiences and critics alike with her realistic performances and her choice of projects, which ironically began to echo Foster's early career by steering toward more demanding adult dramas versus family fare. She would go on to make her biggest splash as Bella Swan, the tortured teen in love with a vampire classmate in the pop cultural phenomenon, "Twilight" (2008) as well as its subsequent sequels. Such was her appeal as this particular film heroine that she would develop a huge fan contingent and consequently become the subject of hopeful rumors regarding a possible off-screen love affair with her equally attractive co-star, Robert Pattinson. Proving her fame was no "Twilight" fluke, the actress scored outside the vampire franchise as the sword-wielding heroine of the hit "Snow White and the Huntsman" (2012). Having come full circle as the tomboy trapped in a panic room to the dreamily romantic Bella, Stewart proved she was one of the more versatile young actresses of her generation.

.

"It's just surreal to be a crucial part of a machine like this. I'm sort of the vessel. The book is what it is because of these girls' obsession with [Edward] through me.
