Robert Pattinson’s best films besides The Batman Via Special
Pattinson actually started his career as an actor through the film Vanity Fair (2004). Unfortunately, the only scene showing Pattinson’s appearance was deleted. So, you could say Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is Pattinson’s first film that actually shows the appearance of the actor.
In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Pattinson plays Cedric Diggory, a Hogwarts student from the Hufflepuff house who becomes one of Harry Potter’s rivals in the Triwizard Tournament. Even before playing Edward Cullen, Pattinson had gotten a handsome and charming character through Cedric. Even though he ended up dead, Cedric’s appearance in this film managed to steal the attention.
