It didn't take too long for producers to realize that the romantic fiction novel about vampires, werewolves, and humans were going to be a hit on the big screen, given its success on the shelves.

Three years after the "Twilight" saga was published, the book was turned into a movie with three installments as well.

With a fantastic storyline and great actors cast for the roles, the stars in the saga have scored Academy Award nominations and had flourishing careers. Here's a look at some of them.

KRISTEN STEWART

The beautiful yet straightforward Bella Swan was played by Kristen Stewart, whose role was coveted by fans, given that the two male leads were fighting for her love.

Just like how Edward (Robert Pattinson) won her heart in the film, the actor wooed her in real life until they became an official couple. However, the two didn't last long and went their separate ways.

She recently starred in the reboot of "Charlie's Angels" as one of the undercover agents where she was able to showcase her acting talent.
