23 Times Robert Pattinson Stole Our Hearts As Cedric Diggory

It's so easy to ? this Hufflepuff.

Long before he was melting hearts in "Twilight," British hottie Robert Pattinson was making us swoon as ill-fated good guy Cedric Diggory in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." RPatzz was perfect as the Hufflepuff hottie, and — ten years later (OMG, has it really been that long?!) — we still heart this actor/character combination.

Here are 23 times Robert Pattinson stole our hearts as Cedric Diggory.

  1. When he made his entrance by jumping from a tree.

    Have you never met someone while sitting in a tree? We highly recommend it.

  2. When he was the most stylish portkey-er ever to portkey.

    Cedric makes using a portkey look like a carefully-choreographed musical number.

  4. But Cedric wasn't the type to revel in his superior skills.

    Cedric was the sort of guy to always lend a hand, even if you were no where near as good at portkey-ing as him.

  5. He WAS the type to be so determined to represent Hogwarts in the Triwizard Tournament.

    Seriously. How could anyone concentrate on pumpkin juice with this perfect specimen chilling at the Hufflepuff table?

  6. And he looked so gosh darn happy about putting his name into the goblet.

    Run, precious child. Run.

  7. And then he was selected, and was so damn proud.

    Guys, the dramatic irony struggle is REAL.

  8. Seriously, not even dragons could dampen his resolve.

    This is Cedric's face when he finds out which dragon he will be facing. Sure, he got the Swedish Short-Snout — which everyone knows has limited on-the-ground agility — but still: DRAGON.

  9. When he was nice to Rita Skeeter.

    Even though she's Rita Skeeter.

  10. EVEN when she messed up his hair.

    You think that hair just falls perfectly itself? It takes time (or maybe some impressive wand work), and Rita Skeeter did not respect that. AT ALL.

  11. When he realized Harry was helping him...

    But you're not a Hufflepuff...

  12. And decided to help him right the heck back.

    Hufflepuffs are just and loyal, bro.

  13. And he was so adorably awkward about it.

    Solid opening...

  14. Like, VERY awkward.

    Dude, just spell it out for him. He's not wearing a wire.

  15. But he was not awkward at all about winning the second task.

    Great command of the Bubble-Head Charm, Cedric!

  16. When he hearted Cho so much.

    TBH, they made a really cute couple.

  17. When he was the best dancer at the Yule Ball.

    Great height, solid coordination. (Draco's face, tho.)

  18. (Meanwhile...)

    Love you, Harry, but please make it stop.

  19.  
  20. When he and his dad were best friends.

    I'm not crying, you're crying.

  21. OK, fine. I'm crying.

  22. When he agreed that Harry and he should win the Triwizard Tournment together.

    For Hogwarts.

  23. When he sacrificed himself for all of wizard-kind.

    OK, so it wasn't really that calculated or anything, but his death helped save Harry, whose continued existence would eventually lead to Voldemort's downfall, so... we're counting it.

  24. We love you, Cedric Diggory.

    "In light of the recent events, the bonds of friendship made this year will be more important than ever. Remember that, and Cedric Diggory will not have died in vain. You remember that, and we'll celebrate a boy who was kind and honest and brave and true. Right to the very end."

    On it, Dumbledore.
