The cast of Twilight
Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart, and Robert Pattinson.

Twilight, the teen vampire movie series debut in 2008, and since then, the world swooned over Bella and Edward's youthful romance. From school children to college-goers, Twilight and the movies under its franchise were loved by everyone, and who could blame us? The cast was too stunning to not fall in love with. Main leads Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen and Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan were definitely two very attractive individuals, one being a vampire, and the other a mortal, which made their lovestory one for the romantic novels.

The supporting cast too were truly loved by everyone. When Taylor Lautner flaunted his muscles onscreen, there was no turning back! Every teenager got hooked to the characters and the movies emotionally and we couldn't stop ourselves from revisiting our favourite clips over and over again.

Taylor Lautner aka Jacob Black

The handsome werewolf from the Twilight series, Taylor Lautner was indeed a global heartthrob from 2008 to 2012. However, Lautner didn't star in that many movies as the other two and concentrated more on television post Twilight era. With movies, Lautner was in Abduction (2011) and Tracers (2015) but his real success was in television shows including Cuckoo (2012-2019), The Bernie Mac Show (2001-2006), and Scream Queens (2015-2016), among others.
