Sarah Gadon to play Robert Pattinson’s wife in Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis
Move over, Kristen Stewart. Twilight’s Team Edward fans now have a new actress to obsessively hate. Toronto’s Sarah Gadon has been pegged to play Robert Pattinson’s estranged wife in David Cronenberg’s upcoming film Cosmopolis, which is shooting in Hogtown this summer. Gadon’s role was initially going to be played by Inception star Marion Cotillard, but the French actress had to back out after becoming pregnant. Enter Gadon, a regular on the Canadian small-screen circuit, with roles that range from the children’s program Ruby Gloom (see YTV appearance, left) to Life With Derek, The Border and Being Erica. More recently, Gadon played Emma Jung, wife of Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung, in another Cronenberg film, A Dangerous Method, currently in post-production. A tip to Gadon for staying in the good graces of Twihards: perhaps stay away from the supposedly smelly former vampire, and opt to hang out with fellow cast members Paul Giamatti and Juliette Binoche instead.
