Alexis Bledel as Bella?
I found this on GilmoreGirl News:
I was a little shocked to come across a reference to Alexis Bledel. Ok, well, maybe not so much on reflection. Many fans, it seems, think that Alexis Bledel would have made a perfect Bella Swan in the series. Perhaps more so than Kristen Stewart, who landed the role in the movie (and it’s several sequels).
Given her pure sweet innocence in Tuck Everlasting, yet her sarcastic wit and huge heart in Gilmore Girls, I think Alexis Bledel could have made a fantastic Bella. Perhaps one more convincing than Kristen Stewart, in terms of acting out the many sides to the character. Bella is young and inexperienced in so much, but has such quirky traits to her, with that naive innocence paired with stubbornness and her ability to see over all and to love without reserve.
What’s done is done, and Kristin Stewart is and will always be Bella. But perhaps Alexis would be too old for the role anyway, given that it will run for at least 3 (maybe up to 5) movies and that Bledel is 5 years older than Pattinson. And I’d definitely keep Pattinson, no question about that!
If you’ve read the Twilight series, what do you think?!
