Jamie Campbell Bower Tells Us Who Would Win In A Potter-Twilight Fight

Jamie Campbell Bower is a charmed man. The twenty-two year old is one of only two actors to have graced both the Harry Potter and the Twilight  films. Who’s the other one, you ask? His Royal Hotness Robert Pattinson. So that being said, we listen up when JCB talks. And just recently he opened up to InStyle about his experiences playing Gellert Gindelwald Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and Caius in Breaking Dawn.

But most importantly, Jamie uses his unique position to settle the age old question: who would win in a franchise fight, the Harry Potter Crew, or Team Twilight? “If it was just the two leads – Edward vs Harry – I said Edward would win in that situation, because once you get the wand out of Harry’s hand, he’s dead.” Excellent strategy, but he admits that it’s not always that simple. “You’ve thrown a new dynamic into it because if it was a team battle. Honestly then, I don’t know.” While weighing the pros and cons he admits it would be a close fight. “I probably have to say the vampires again. They do move at super speed.

The Evolution of Daniel Radcliffe: From Silly Kid To Superstar

Daniel Radcliffe has a lot to celebrate these days. The final installment of the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, opened today with midnight showings packed around the globe. Early reports are predicting the film will break box office records. In just the US alone the movie has already made $45 million in pre-sales — before it opened Thursday night. Daniel, like his Potter cohorts, has remained amazingly humble and down to earth through the past decade of Potter-mania. Currently performing on Broadway here in NYC, Daniel can often be spotted eating lunch by himself in the West Village, book in hand.

The actor will celebrate his 21st birthday on July 23rd.  To honor the kid who made our favorite franchise the magical monster it is today, we’re taking a look back at the evolution of Daniel — from awkward tween to handsome, humble movie star.
