I have to say Edward in the book is sexier. His looks, his manners, his actions, his toutured soul, they way he's willing to give up everything for Bella, the whole package. Don't get me wrong Rob does a wonderful job making Edward visual and real. He's a great actor/musician, that I find very interesting and I can't wait to see more of his work, but only Edward is Edward.
I would say Edward as well. There is just so much more depth to his character in the book. So much more feeling. I love the fact that they cast Rob as Edward, but he is just the visual part. He is an excellent actor and portrays Edward very well, but before Rob even knew what Twilight was Edward had been around for a couple years and that is who we all fell in love with! So definatly Edward ( Rob is pretty gorgeous though!!)
i think rob does a really killer job portraying Edward. plus i cant really think of anyone else that they could have got to play the part that would have done any better rob made the part.. the of them made they're parts ... summit pick a great cast
I think the people who read the books before seeing the movies, have their own image of Edward in their heads. Most of the people who read them after seeing the movies, imagine Robert as Edward when reading...i think it's inevitable. But there are also people that make the difference between Edward from the books and Edward in the movies...and have their own opinion of each of them. I personally love Edward - the character - just as he's described in the books, but i also like Robert playing Edward in the movies...i think he's lucky to play this role.
Robert brings out the qualities of Edward from the book but I don't think anyone could have pulled off the movie the way rob did... he was pefect for it and definitely georgous enough to play Edward but all in all just to answer you question, it would be ROB!
