Mini Biography
An exceptionally poised young film actress with a knack for challenging roles as troubled adolescents, Kristen Stewart got her big break playing Jodie Foster’s daughter in David Fincher’s hot-wired thriller, “Panic Room” (2002). As the teen’s profile rose over the following years, Stewart consistently impressed audiences and critics alike with her realistic performances and her choice of projects – which echoed Foster’s early career by straying far from family fare and jumping right into demanding adult dramas with aplomb. In 2003, Stewart signed on to play the daughter of Dennis Quaid and Sharon Stone in another suspenseful project, Mike Figgis’ “Cold Creek Manor” (2003).

In 2006, Stewart starred in the Canadian feature “Fierce People,” a drama by actor-director Griffin Dunne, about a troubled masseuse (Diane Lane) who arranges for a better life for her teenage son and herself, with unfortunate results. Stewart had a starring role in the moderately successful supernatural film “The Messengers” (2007), and her career began to soar with no less than 10 film releases in the subsequent two years. In the fall of 2008, Stewart co-starred in the highly anticipated film adaptation of “Twilight,” Catherine Hardwicke’s acclaimed novel about a teenage girl who falls in love with a handsome vampire.
