"How to Be" Reignited Pattinson's Passion

After his role as Cedric Diggory in the 2005 hit Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Pattinson was unable to secure any roles that reignited his passion for acting... until How to Be came along.

Oliver Irving spoke to about Pattinson's reconsideration and thoughts on becoming a musician:

"He was thinking about giving up acting and maybe doing music solely when this role (in How To Be) came along. He wanted to play the roles he wasn't getting... He was looking for something more challenging."

Irving adds: "I said, 'You're banned from cutting your hair between now and the shoot.' We had to give him the most awkward haircut we possibly could, and we cut his trouser length a little bit too high. Things like that played down his apparent good looks."

A lot of the time he would turn out to have a really good (instrument) technique and we told him he needed to play it more simply."
