I came across an article on My Park Mag about Robert Pattinson and what methods he used to get into the role of Twilight’s Edward Cullen. It was rumoured that he wrote a diary when filming Twilight but he denies that he did so.
Rob told 15 a 20 magazine, “It wasn’t exactly a journal. I don’t know how it started (laughs) but I hadn’t realised how difficult it was going to be to play Edward until I started reading the script. He’s a very complex character. So I moved to Portland on my own two or three months before filming began and I didn’t do anything but read the script and books to find anything that helped me play him.” He says he became a little obsessed, “So I started to write things. I mean, if you really prepare for a role, there’s going to be a moment in which he’s all you can think of. So I did things like little suicide notes. I was a little worrying actually (bursts out laughing).”
No Robert, we don’t want you to commit suicide. But what I get from his statement is that diaries are not a waste of time. And since this blog is ‘The Ice Queen Diaries’ it means that my blogging is not a waste of time. I had people say to me that I should be doing my final year project instead of blogging. But I’m sure that this blog is constructive and not destructive. First it helps me practice my writing skills such as my writing style and secondly it is my hobby, giving me something to do.
