It's hard to believe it's been ten years since the love story between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen premiered on the big screen. 

One decade later, Stephanie Meyer's vampire franchise, Twilight, is still one of our favorites to watch, thanks to a cast that includes Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Anna Kendrick, Kellan Lutz, and of course, the one and only Robert Pattinson. Since 2008, the stars of the hit film have gone on to do big things in Hollywood, but they will always been Forks residents to us. 

"Every part that I've ever played has shaped me in such a significant way...I know from an outsider's perspective you might have something to say about that like in general. But I kind of view it as every other thing that I've invested in and really loved. And I'm lucky to have had that experience," Kristen said in 2017. "I got a lot from [Twilight] and it's made me who I am."

So, what are the Cullens and rest of the Twilight cast up to today? Keep scrolling for an update on your favorite character from the first film.
