Last year Matthew played Luis Buñuel in Little Ashes opposite Robert Pattinson, currently the UK's brightest star since appearing in Twilight. The historical drama follows a young Salvador Dali and his relationship with the playwright Federico Garcia Lorca. 'There's something that draws you to Rob. He is really intelligent and he's a charming chap as well. When the Twilight thing exploded I wasn't surprised. Little Ashes will be seen by a lot more people now.' Matthew and Robert are the only British actors in the Spanish cast. 'Previously he was just that guy from Harry Potter [he played Cedric Diggory and was murdered by Ralph Fiennes in the fourth instalment]. The fact that he's playing Dali will wash that off a bit and people will see him as a proper actor.'
