Who hasn’t heard of the novel Harry Potter written by British author, J.K. Rowling? Her Harry Potter series quite amazed people of all ages around the world with its unique style of telling the life of an orphaned wizard who was left at the doorstep of his Muggle relatives. The books were a total success in the shelves and had sold billions of copies everywhere every time it hit the bookstores.
Today, the hit series can be seen in the movies, starting off with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Actors Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint played the major roles of Harry, Hermione and Ron respectively. It was also an instant success not only to the followers of the book but also by those who haven’t read the book yet. Over the years these actors spearheaded the following series of Harry Potter as well as new characters being introduced each movie.
During the fourth movie, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, one actor caught the attention of the viewers. Robert Pattinson, who played the role of Cedric Diggory, Hufflepuff’s Champion, has earned recognition with the way he carried his character throughout the entire movie. With his pretty boy looks and acting skills, Cedric Diggory came out as a strong in the movie.
When asked about his character in the Harry Potter movie, Robert Pattinson denied that he was much like his character Cedric Diggory in real life. He was quoted as saying, “I was never a leader, and the idea of my ever being made head boy is a complete joke. I wasn’t involved in much at school, and I was never picked for any of the teams.”
Born in May 13, 1986, Robert Pattinson started his career as a model. However, this didn’t last. Pattinson became involved in the theater and got his background in acting here. This has propelled him to the world of entertainment by taking small roles and cameos in television programs and of course, being cast as one of the important characters in the Harry Potter series. Though his character was doomed, Robert Pattinson took it in stride thinking how lucky his other co-actors are since they will be staying for the duration of the series.
Robert Pattinson’s portrayal of Cedric Diggory is just great. He has given life to one his character and even became him during the filming of the movie. Even when he is quite the opposite of his character, Robert Pattinson gave his best to fit into his character. Those who have seen the movie certainly applaud his acting skills and do hope that he shall be seen in more movies in the future.
