Emilie de Ravin: '“I didn’t know who Rob was!”
On the latest issue of Fabric magazine, Emilie talks about why she wanted to star in Remember Me, and why it had nothing to do with Rob. Sure, sure..
In Remember Me de Ravin plays Ally Craig, a young woman trying to return to normality after seeing her mother tragically killed, when Tyler, played by Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson, walks into her life. "I think Ally isn't ruling out love, but neither is she looking for it," explains de Ravin. "They launch into something that attracts them not just physically but on a mental and intellectual level, too. It feels very real," she says. So what was it like working with man-of-the-moment R-Patz? "I didn't know who Rob was!" she laughs. Surely not? "Really – I just read the script and fell in love with it." This is typical of de Ravin's attitude to Hollywood: for her, it's more about picking the right projects and being lucky enough to be surrounded by decent people, than being a star.
