The brother and sister stars of hit films The Twilight Saga and The Inbetweeners are to play siblings on stage in a revival of a British wartime drama.
Charlie Bewley, 30, who played vampire Demetri in the Twilight films New Moon and Eclipse, will make his professional stage debut in The River Line next month. Hollywood-based Charlie said it was a great chance to work in London – and with his sister. Lydia Rose Bewley, 26, spent most of her career on stage before The Inbetweeners, playing Jay’s love interest Jane.
He said: “There’s a tight bond between the two characters and I think that working with her will only enrich that part of the play.”
Drama school graduate Lydia, of Herne Hill, said it was a “privilege” to work with her brother, who only started acting in his mid-twenties. The play tells of Allied pilots hiding in occupied France. Adapted by Charles Morgan from his novel for the 1952Edinburgh Festival, it runs at the Jermyn Street Theatre from October 4 until 29.
