Wednesday January 13, 2010

The Twilight series has taken the world by storm and proving her popularity, star of the films Kristen Stewart has been nominated for a Bafta award.

The actress, who plays Bella Swan in the vampire series, is up for this year's rising star award, facing competition from British actress Carey Mulligan and Skins star Nicholas Hoult.

The A Single Man actor Nicholas has been quick to reveal his excitement.

"We couldn't believe that I'd been put in a category with great actors and, looking at the people who have won this award and been nominated beforehand, it's quite scary to think that people think I might do as well as them," he says. 

The winner of this year's award will be announced at the Bafta ceremony in London on February 21.
