Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen makes 100 Greatest Characters List!



When I checked my mail today, what should I find but the lastest issue of Entertainment Weekly with a very interesting cover story -- The 100 Greatest Characters in the Last 20 Years. One could debate who made the cut, but that's an entirely different post. Twi-Hards though will be happy to know that a Twilight character is included in the special issue of EW.

In the #53 spot, Edward Cullen from The Twilight Saga is listed as one of the greatest characters. The photo that accompanies the feature is of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson laying beside each other in bed, gazing into each other's eyes. This screen capture from the Twilight Eclipse film is one we're all fairly familiar with. Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen is sandwiched between Kathy Bate's "Annie Wilkes" and Ellen Pages "Juno", #52 and #54 respectively.

Do any other blood suckers beat out Edward? None do. But keep this in mind -- a slayer of his kind does get ahead of him!

Stephenie Meyer should feel honored her creation made EW's list. There were some very memorable characters listed including Kramer, Tony Soprano, and Elmo, and Roseanne. I wonder if a decade from now Edward Cullen would still make a character list such as this???
