Anna Kendrick, Dakota Fanning, Rami Malek and More: 5 Actors You Totally Forgot Were in Twilight
The Twilight Saga
Twilight might be known for launching the careers of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, but it also featured some other famous face.
Click through for the unexpected stars that made their way into the franchise.
Anna Kendrick as Jessica
Kendrick played a small role as Jessica, a frenemy of Stewart's character at school. She first took on the role a year before earning an Oscar nomination for Up in the Air, just one of the parts she's since become more known for.
And you're not the only one that forgot she was in the hit franchise.
The A Simple Favor actress, 33, tweeted about forgetting she was in Twilight recently — just a few days after the film’s 10-year anniversary.
“Holy s—. I just remembered I was in Twilight,” Kendrick tweeted.
The actress appeared in four of the franchise’s films — Twilight, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1.
Dakota Fanning as Jane Volturi
Fanning starred in three of the Twilight movies as Jane Volturi, one of the sinister members of the guard that rules over vampires.
A then-15-year-old Fanning made her first appearance in New Moon before reprising her role in Eclipse and Breaking Dawn — Part 2. It was also one of the first times the former child actress crossed over to the dark side for a role.
"This is a character that really takes pleasure in causing people pain," she told EW in 2009. "And that’s kind of a fascinating character to get to play. So that was definitely one of the reasons that I wanted to do it."
Rami Malek as Benjamin
Before becoming a household name with Mr. Robot and the hit Bohemian Rhapsody, Malek appeared as the gifted vampire Benjamin in Breaking Dawn — Part 2.
The actor played an Egypcian vampire who helps out Stewart and Pattinson's character when the Volturi come knocking. It's one of the few times the actor has played a character with his same ethnicity.
Michael Sheen as Aro Volturi
The veteran Welsh actor played the all-powerful Aro, who led the villainous Volturi clan in their control of all vampires.
Sheen is also memorably part of the iconic Breaking Dawn — Part 2 scene that briefly showed ever favorite character's demise before it was revealed to be a vision that hadn't taken place yet.
Jamie Campbell Bower as Caius Volturi
The British actor is no stranger to book adaptations. Though he starred as part of the villainous Volturi coven in the movies, he also had roles in Harry Potter as a young version of Gellert Grindelwald (a role he reprised in the new Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald) and The Mortal Instruments series.
