Pattinson would return to 'Twilight' in future

Robert Pattinson would return to the 'Twilight Saga' in the future.

The 26-year-old actor has played vampire Edward Cullen in all five instalments of the movie series and won't rule out reprising the role again at a later date.

He told US TV show 'Extra': "If they still hire me to play a 17 year old when I'm 40 or whatever, I would do anything! Definitely ... I'd be interested next year, probably."

Robert isn't the only person to express an interest in returning to the film series, as Kellan Lutz, who plays Emmett Cullen, would be happy to go back to the role for a spin-off with his character.

He said: "I'd love to show some more backstory or show more of the relationship between Rosalie and Emmett. So I would definitely come back."

And even if he doesn't return to the 'Twilight Saga', Robert is interested in working with girlfriend Kristen Stewart - who plays Bella Swan - again, saying they have "sort of" discussed it.

He added: "It could be a difficult thing to find. [But] there's like 10 actresses to work with, unless you're going to hire an unknown. No one hires anyone other than the 10 actresses for a lead, it's very strange."

Pattinson and Stewart are expected at the 'Breaking Dawn: Part 2' European premiere this evening. We're live blogging from 5.30pm.
