See The Cast of ‘Twilight’: Then and Now

It’s already been 7 years since the first Twilight film hit theaters. Since then the vampire craze has already seemed to boom and then slowly fade out. We all might know what Robert Pattinson and his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart are up to, but what about the rest of the Cullen clan? Which supporting cast members managed to make successful careers for themselves post-vampires? Find out what everyone’s been doing since  Breaking Dawn – Part 2 released in 2012!

Kristen Stewart - Bella Swan

Before Twilight, most people only knew Kristen Stewart as the girl who played Jodi Foster's daughter in Panic Room. But as of 2008, her name was sealed into celebrity status thanks to playing the clumsy, new girl who falls in love with a vampire in Twilight. Since the last film came out back in 2012, K-Stew has been pretty busy. She and Robert Pattinson had a fairly messy breakup, after she'd been caught having an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director. Recently, she was in the Oscar-nominated Still Alice with Julianne Moore. In 2015, she's set to appear in the film Equals with Nicholas Hoult and Guy Pearce. She is also signed onto an untitled Woody Allen project currently slated for a 2016 release.

#TeamEdward for life....even if Robert Pattinson isn't always #TeamTwilight. After The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, Rob took some time off from acting. We did see him in a few stunning Dior advertisements though. By 2014, Rob was acting again but not in anything nearly as commercial as Twilight. In 2015, we can look forward to seeing him in Life and The Childhood of a Leader. Most recently, Rob has been in the news because of his relationship with FKA Twigs and their engagement back in April.

Directly after playing everyone's favorite big guy in Twilight, Kellan Lutz was in Java Heat with Mickey Rourke, who he worked with previously for Immortals. Lutz is still currently signed with Ford Models, which landed him his 2010 Calvin Klein campaign. In 2014 he was in The Legend of Hercules, but sadly it was a box office and commercial failure. That same year he was also in The Expendables 3. Now, we can find him on the TV show Bullseye and in the 2015 film Experimenter. He made headlines recently after accepting a bullied teen's promposal.

Before she was the bitch everyone loved to hate in Twilight, Nikki Reed was the bitcty girl we all wanted to be in Thirteen. Her previous work relationship with Catherine Hardwicke is what got her the part of Rosalie. Nowadays, Nikki is one half of the cutest couple in Hollywood. She and Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder - aka "her human" - began dating in 2014 and married in April of 2015. The next films we can look forward to seeing her in are Scout with Shelly Hennig, The Highway is for Gamblers with Bonnie Wright, and A Sunday Horse.

Unlike some of her co-stars, Ashley Greene wasn't a big star before Twilight, and since the films ended, she hasn't been in the spotlight nearly as much. She's doing some voice over work now, lending her lovely voice to the video game Batman: Arkham Knight. She also still hangs out with her Cullen family, recently reuniting with her "brother" Emmett. Her future projects are: In Dubious Battle, Urge, and Max & Me.

It looks like Peter Facinelli loved being a hot doctor so much, he stuck with it. Since 2009 he's been on Nurse Jackie, as Dr. Fitch Cooper. This year he began his role as Peter Decker on American Odyssey. After 11 years of marriage, Facinelli filed for divorce from his wife Jenni Garth in 2012 and it was finalized in 2013. The same year he filed for divorce, he began dating Jamie Alexander after meeting on the set of Loosies. The couple became engaged in 2015.

Taylor Lautner - Jacob Black

We're pretty sure after becoming one of the highest paid teen actors ever, Taylor Lautner doesn't need to do much post-Twilight. In 2013 he appeared in Grown Ups 2 as a douche-y frat bro that antagonized Adam Sandler and co. In 2014 he replaced Andy Samberg in BBC Three's Cuckoo. His upcoming work to look forward to is: Tracers, Run The Tide, and The Ridiculous 6 with Adam Sandler, Steve Buscemi, and Terry Crews.

Anna Kendrick - Jessica

Anna Kendrick has done nothing since playing Bella's bitchy friend Jessica. Sike. If anyone has had a truly successful career after Twilight, it's Anna Kendrick. Unlike R Pattz and K-Stew, who got other roles because they were the main cast, Kendrick has gone on to do some great stuff. While still working in the Twilight world, she garnered a lot of attention for her role in Up In The Air opposite George Clooney. What sealed the deal in making everyone love her was her role of Beca in Pitch Perfect, which she reprised this year in Pitch Perfect 2. She's also got another movie that looks fantastic coming out soon, Get a Job, which she stars in with Miles Teller and Bryan Cranston.

Christian Serratos - Angela

Hey The Walking Dead fans, recognize her? Christian Serratos went from playing Bella's quiet, kind-of dorky friend Angela, to playing the red-hot Rosita on TWD. In the March 2015 issue of Playboy magazine, Serratos was pictured in the "After Hours" section, photographed by Josh Reed.

Rachelle Lefevre - Victoria

As you know, Rachelle Lefevre did not reprise her role of Victoria in Eclipse. Summit Entertainment replaced her with Bryce Dallas Howard for the film, due to Lefevre's scheduling conflicts for Eclipse and the independent film Barney's Version. Though fans were annoyed that she was cut, it didn't end Lefevre's career at all. She's been actively busy since then, appearing with big roles in several TV shows: Off The Map, A Gifted Man, and most recently, Under the Dome.

Cam Gigandet - James

Unlike everyone else on this list, Cam Gigandet did not appear in any other film besides Twilight. As you all know, James met his end in that final battle scene. We've seen plenty of Cam since then, playing a cheating boyfriend to Amanda Bynes character in Easy A. a cute bartender in Burlesque,  and a womanizer in Bad Johnson. In 2014 he played Roy Rayder in Reckless. Future projects we can see him in are: Broken Vows and The Magnificent Seven, also starring Chris Pratt, Vincent D'Onofrio, and Denzel Washington.

Edi Gathegi - Laurent

Like Cam Gigandet, Edi Gathegi's character didn't make it far in the Twilight series. After his character Laurent died, Gathegi went on to appear as Darmin/Armando in X-Men: First Class. That character also didn't have such good luck. Sine then he's been on the TV shows: Phineas & Ferb, Family Tools, and Justified. He's in the new series Proof, playing Zed and will be in the film Criminal Activities.
