Robert Pattinson owes his career to Harry Potter role: 'I wouldn't be acting if it wasn't for that'

Robert Pattinson opens up about Harry Potter filming experience and the huge impact its had on his career: ‘I wouldn’t be acting if it wasn’t for that’

At 17-years-old, Robert Pattinson was forced to choose between going away to study at university or take on the role of Hogwarts champion Cedric Diggory in the 2005 film Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire. 

He choose the latter, and then saw his career soar over the next few years.

Now, 14 years on, the British-born actor didn’t mince words when he confessed that he owes his career to his Harry Potter experience.

‘I really like that movie…I wouldn’t be acting if it wasn’t for that.’

Pattinson, now 33, made the bold statement during an interview with Kristien Gijbels for the podcast HFPA In Conversation.

He also shared some of his warm and fuzzy thoughts about his experience on the set of the juggernaut franchise. 

‘It was a really nice environment on Harry Potter,’ he said during the conversation. 

‘Even compared to movies I’ve done since, it was very protective.’

For Pattinson, the cherished experience was due, in part, to ‘the way the kids were treated; In Harry Potter they were at school and they were kind of doing work at the same time.’

He added that the shoot ‘felt like a very friendly family environment, noting that his favorite part was the press tour: ‘It was amazing.’

‘I remember going to Tokyo for the first time, and sitting in my room looking out over the city and being like, how has this happened?’

Within the next three years, the London Native would see his star rise at a meteoric rate with the huge success of his leading man role as Edward Cullen in Twilight in 2008.

Of course that led to four follow-up films in the Twilight franchise that ended with 2012’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

His latest film, The Lighthouse, directed by Robert Eggers, has gotten some great reviews. The black-and-white is set in the 1890s, at a lighthouse on a desolate rock off the coast of New England. 

Earlier this year, Pattinson scored another role of a lifetime when he signed-on to star as Bruce Wayne/Batman in a new trilogy of Batman movies that will put more of an emphasis on the Caped Crusader’s investigative skills.

The superhero movie, which is being directed by Matt Reeves, is scheduled to hit theaters June 25, 2021.
