“Twilight” actor Robert Pattinson just got a little more dreamy. Pattinson is not only a distant cousin of Prince William and Prince Harry (through his father’s side), he is also a descendant of Vlad the Impaler, the real-life inspiration behind Dracula.
“Tracing Pattinson’s family back to Vlad was difficult research, but the pieces that unraveled created the perfect accompaniment to the 'Twilight Saga,'” said Anastasia Tyler, a genealogist at Ancestry.com
. “Without any myth or magic, we find royalty and vampires lurking in Pattinson’s life – making his story just as supernatural as the one he’s playing on screen.” —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
