A vampire academic of the University of Texas has described the Robert Pattinson's Twilight character Edward Cullen as a 'starter vamp'.
Dr Thomas Garza, a
vampire expert and who teaches vampire lore recently commented on the popular Twilight novels written by Stephanie Meyer. He explained the books and movie series have created a new vampire trend.
He told Reuters: "I would say that it is The Twilight Saga in particular that has brought out the younger teen fans. In that connection, Edward is a very 'safe' vampire, a kind of 'starter vamp' for beginners, if you will.".
