With Stephenie Meyer's long awaited Midnight Sun finally hitting shelves, many former Twihards have found themselves dusting off their old books and DVDs to relive all the vampire glory of yesteryear. And while you're going down memory lane, you're probably wondering, what is the cast of Twilight up to now?

The Twilight Saga was a cultural phenomenon, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Nearly 30 years after Anne Rice won readers over with her tales of the brooding Louis de Pointe du Lac and the flamboyant Lestat de Lioncourt, Meyer's own broody hero, Edward Cullen, took the world by storm. Now, Edward's telling his own side of the story in Midnight Sun, the new book that revisits the events of Twilight from his perspective.

It's been nearly a decade since Breaking Dawn — Part 2 closed the curtain on the Twilight Saga. Here's what the major players from the cast of Twilight are up to today:

Kristen Stewart

Later this year, she'll star in the 2020 LGBTQ+ rom-com Happiest Season, opposite Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire), and has signed on to portray Princess Diana in the forthcoming film Spencer.
