Saturday Scream Queen: Kristen Stewart
Born in Los Angeles in 1990, Kristen Stewart starting acting at an early age, and appeared in her first horror films just as she was entering her teens, with "Cold Creek Manor" and "Panic Room". She is making the transition from working child actor to adult movie star with the lead role in the smash-hit vampire-vs-werewolves-and-acne-cream teen horror film series "The Twilight Saga," the final two installments of which are currently entering production ad slated for 2011 and 2012 releases, respectively.
Stewart's name has also been mentioned in connection with "Backwoods", another horror movie tentatively scheduled for a 2011 release, co-starring Julianne Moore and directed by Bart Freundlich.
I haven't seen any of the "Twilight" movies, but I thought Stewart was excellent in the girl-friendly horror film "The Messenger", so I imagine she's only gotten better. Here's hoping that her career track and life path is more like that of Jennifer Love Hewitt's than Lindsay Lohan's as it moves forward.
