Kristen Stewart missed out on Austenland role

Kristen Stewart missed out on a role in Twilight author Stephenie Meyer’s new film Austenland over fears audiences could only imagine the actress as her character from vampire franchise. Meyer worked as a producer on the big screen adaptation of Shannon Hale’s novel, about a woman obsessed with a TV retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, but she avoided the temptation to recast Twilight actress Stewart.
The author tells WENN, “It’s tempting sometimes when you know what people can do… Sure, I would love to work with Kristen Stewart. She’s super talented, but if she plays a character, people are going to see (Twilight character) Bella.”
