The universe is really big, making the possibility of other races and life forms out in space very large. So why so far haven’t we found these extraterrestrials? This is the questioning of Fermi’s Paradox , which unfolds into thousands of questions. Many of the theories focus on questioning what is preventing all existing civilizations in space from meeting. There are several possibilities, from sleeping to being present but not realizing it. However, a new theory has emerged: what if the aliens are frozen or trapped beneath large ice crusts ?
According to planetary scientist Alan Stern, from the Southwest Research Institute in Colorado, USA, oceanic planets are very common in our solar system. Consequently, they would also be common in the rest of the universe. But unlike Earth , the waters in this world are under a thick layer of ice. But if you think that this can prevent these beings from being able to live in these conditions, you may be sadly mistaken.
Just as life on Earth sustains itself in the deep sea thanks to the heat and chemicals coming out of hydrothermal vents, extraterrestrial life may be thriving on ventilation systems produced through the geological activity of their ocean worlds. And if you’re living on chemical energy from your own planet instead of solar energy from a star, your planet could potentially be located anywhere.
If it is possible that they live, what prevents them from having evolved much more than us? They are probably light years ahead of us, at least 3 billion years ahead according to the scientist.
Between 2008 and 2012, the world served as the setting for the great phenomenon that was the Twilight Saga . Adapted from books written by Stephenie Meyer, the narrative in question revolves around a universe where vampires and werewolves exist and, coincidentally, they fall in love with the same shy high school girl who out of nowhere sees her world turn upside down and delivers the identification of a large portion of the public who always dreamed of starring in a fairy tale. Well then, among the various components of this supernatural universewe find the Cullen Family, the clan of vampires responsible for helping the protagonist couple not to die. Among the members of this clan we find several memorable figures who won over viewers even acting as supporting actors. So, we decided to go in search of what the Cullen interpreters did after the end of the saga. You can check the search result below.
Peter Facinelli | Carlisle Cullen
Peter Facinelli played Dr. Carlisle Cullen, clan leader, husband to Esme and adoptive father to Edward, Alice, Emmett, Rosalie and Jasper. Before Twilight, Facinelli already had some notable works, such as the films Can’t Hardly Wait (1998) and Os Garotos da Minha Vida (2001). On TV, the star also performed in series such as Fastlane (2002) and A Sete Palmos (2001). However, after the Twilight Saga the actor gained even more prominence, participating in several productions, such as the horror feature Gallows Hill (2013), the criminal thriller Running with the Devil (2019), the musical series Glee (2009), the American Odyssey thriller (2015) and even in Arrowverso we saw it, in Supergirl (2015). His most recent projects are the action thriller Hour of Lead (2020) – a film in which he also acts as a director and screenwriter – and the reboot of Magnum PI
Elizabeth Reaser | Esme Cullen
Before Twilight, Elizabeth Reaser appeared in a few films, but her biggest highlight was as Ava/Rebecca Pope in Grey’s Anatomy. In the vampire universe we saw her embodying Esme Cullen, a devoted wife and mother. So, after delivering a discreet but significant performance as Esme, Reaser starred in projects such as the drama One and Two (2015), Hello, My Name Is Doris (2015), the Ouija terrors: Origin of Evil (2016) and Nightmare Cine ( 2018). On TV, the actress immersed herself in the universes of True Detective (2014), Mad Men (2007), Easy (2016), Manhunt (2017), Law & Order True Crime (2017), The Handmaid’s Tale (2017) and more most recently, The Curse of the Hill Residence (2018), where she plays Shirley Crain.
Ashley Greene | Alice Cullen
Ashley Greene played Alice Cullen, one of Carlisle and Esme’s adopted daughters and one of the main components of the narrative, although the film didn’t put as much focus on that. Before playing the audience’s darling in the Twilight Saga, Greene didn’t have many notable works on screen. However, after her performance in the vampire movie she even added a few more jobs to her resume. Surprisingly, unlike her co-stars, the actress chose to take it easy after the end of the saga. Thus, we saw it in only a few productions, such as the CBGB movies: O Cradle of Punk Rock (2013) and Batalha Uncerta (2016). Her most recent work was in The Scandal (2019), where she plays Abby Huntsman.
Nikki Reed | Rosalie Hale
Nikki Reed’s big debut was in her first film At Thirteen (2003), where she worked with director Catherine Hardwicke, whom she would meet again as she was cast to play the flawless Rosalie Hale in Twilight. After his time with the Cullens, Reed appeared in films such as The Big Assault (2013), Crimes Cruzados (2013), O Bola Fora (2104) and Inseparables (2016). In addition, the actress participated in series such as The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (2013), Dollface (2019) and Apocalypse V (2019). However, Reed has also focused on directing and producing, as well as appearing in some music videos.
Kellan Lutz | Emmett Cullen
Kellan Lutz played Emmett Cullen, Rosalie’s love interest who was adopted by the clan. Emmett was the strongest among the Cullens, despite being defeated by Bella in her “newborn” version. After the end of the saga, Lutz sought to focus on film projects, both large and independent. Thus, the star was in Java Heat (2013), dubbed the protagonist of Tarzan: The Evolution of Legend (2013), starred in Hercules (2014), participated in The Mercenaries 3 (2014), Experiments (2015), Operation Rescue ( 2015), Money at Play (2016), Science Fiction Volume One: The Legacy of Osiris (2016), 7 Guardians of the Tomb (2018), and What Men Love (2019).
Jackson Rathbone | Jasper Hale
Jackson Rathbone played Jasper Hale, Alice’s love interest and the youngest of the clan until Bella’s arrival. Furthermore, Jasper has an interesting power, he can feel and change the emotions of those around him. Although Rathbone had some work before Twilight, the vampire universe was responsible for opening the doors of Hollywood for him. As a result, he later landed the role of Sokka in The Last Airbender. With the end of the saga, the actor starred in films such as Horseshoe Theory (2017), Justice (2017), Samson (2018) and The Wall of Mexico (2019 ). In addition, you can also check out his work in series like White Collar Crimes (2009), NTSF:SD:SUV:: (2011), Finding Carter (2014) and The Last Ship (2014).
Robert Pattinson | Edward Cullen
Last but not least, we have Robert Pattinson, the protagonist of the Twilight Saga alongside Kristen Stewart. Pattinson spent four years giving life to Edward Cullen and after saying goodbye to the character he gradually gained the seventh art. Starting in independent productions like Map to the Stars (2014), Life: A Portrait of James Dean (2015), Z: The Lost City (2016), Good Behavior (2017), High Life (2018) and The Lighthouse (2019) , Pattinson started to be disputed by big studios. Soon, his roles started to gain more visibility in Hollywood as in the films The King (2019), Tenet (2020), The Devil of Every Day (2020) and, currently, he is on the set of recordings of The Batman (2022) .
