The Most Underrated ‘Twilight Saga’ Characters

As the “Twilight” series sparkles for the final time on the big screen, it would be all too easy to write yet another feature about Bella, Edward and Jacob, but it took a huge ensemble of vampires, humans, and werewolves to support the breathtaking paranormal romance.

Here’s a look at some of the characters who help Mr. and Mrs. Cullen (and their best pal Jake) achieve their “small but perfect piece” of forever.

  • Charlie Swan (Billy Burke)

    There would never have been a “Twilight Saga” had Bella not moved to rainy Forks, Washington, to live with her sheriff father. Papa Charlie is the other man Bella loves, and he exhibits the kind of patience and fierce protectiveness that further humanizes his single-minded, lovesick daughter. He deserves his happily ever after.

  • Alice Cullen (Ashley Greene)

    From the moment Bella and Edward start falling for each other, pixie-ish Alice is the couple’s number-one immortal fan. Alice’s charm and boundless energy is irresistible, and it doesn’t hurt that she’s both a fashionista who loves to dress up Bella, and a fierce fighter who saves the day with her prescient visions.

  • Carlisle Cullen (Peter Facinelli)

    The fair doctor is the moral center of the Cullen clan — the reason the extended family refuses to drink human blood and has flourished on a vegetarian diet. When things get tough, Carlisle never panics or backs down, and he’s always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needs his help.

  • Rosalie Cullen (Nikki Reed)

    Although she’s quite snobby and unlikable at the beginning of the series, Rosalie grows on the audience as her past is revealed. In the final two movies, she becomes Bella’s staunchest ally (and most eager babysitter). Even her choice in mate (jolly Emmet), makes it clear that she’s much more than her frosty exterior.

  • Emmet Cullen (Kellan Lutz)

    Whereas Jasper (Jackson Rathbone) always looks on the verge of rage (or possibly constipation), Emmet is the happy-go-lucky Cullen brother — complete with super-human strength and a taste for expensive sports cars. Emmet complements Edward’s emo broodiness with his smiles and his (figuratively) sunny personality.

  • Jessica (Anna Kendrick)

    After the first few movies, you rarely see Bella’s human high school friends, but Jessica remains among the few we actually care about as an audience. She’s smart and funny and good at pointing out the truth. It’s a shame that after the wedding, we never hear or see her mortal pals again.

  • Seth Clearwater (Booboo Stewart)

    The cub of the pack, Seth is the most adorable of the Quileute tribe’s werewolves. He’s the first of the hunky Wolf Pack to decide to follow alpha-wolf Jacob and align himself with the Cullens. From “Eclipse” onward, wise-cracking, sweet-smiling Seth helps Jacob defend Bella from dangerous vampires.

  • Aro (Michael Sheen)

    Every epic protagonist needs a worthy antagonist, and in the “Twilight” universe, Aro and his ancient vampire brothers are merciless villains. Of the three Volturi and their scary henchvamps, Aro is the most powerful, and the most gleefully bloodthirsty and calculating. In “Breaking Dawn 2,” Aro lets loose the most deliriously evil laugh since Lord Voldemort.

  • Sam Uley (Chaske Spencer)

    Who doesn’t love an alpha male? Stoic werewolf Sam isn’t as vital to the final two movies as he was to “New Moon” or “Eclipse,” but he’s the head wolf in the Quileute pack (at least until Jacob splinters off as a second alpha) and ultimately supports Jacob and the Cullens fight off first Victoria and then the Volturi.
