NEW PHOTO: Robert Pattinson on ‘Rover’ Set for Good Cause as Kristen Stewart’s BF Supports Cancer Research [SLIDESHOW]
British actor, Robert Pattinson has expressed support for breast cancer research initiated by Samuel Johnson, an Australian film and television actor who has embarked on an “epic unicycle journey” to raise funds for his sister diagnosed with cancer.
A photo of the actor wearing the same shirt as he did in the series of photos taken by Media-Mode.com on March 5, 2013, has come out today. But this time, he was not inside the car and big smiles showing his “horrible teeth.”
Robert was seen with Johnson and co-star Guy Pearce in a photo taken while on set filming The Rover. Johnson, known best for his role as “Evan” on the critically acclaimed Australian series, ‘The Secret Life of Us,’ which ran for four seasons, was in his pitstop in Quorn where The Rover is currently filming when the picture was taken.
This then paved way for more awareness of his cause to help his sister Connie, a breast cancer victim. Johnson, who also took a lead role in Crackerjack (2002) and in The Illustrated Family Doctor, has been biking around Australia on unicycle in an effort to raise 1$M. Proceeds of his advocacy will go to breast cancer research.
This has also earned support from the brother-sister efforts to fight cancer in reactions to the photo shared on their Facebook page.
Melissa Cook: “The two guys on the outside are alright but the guy in the middle (no not ben mendelson or the guy from packed to the rafters, but Samuel Johnson!) Is hot! Killing it mate, keep up the awesome work!”
Wendy Downie: “You're a truly amazing person Sam Johnson - and the other 2 are pretty cool too.”
Jill McGee: “How do you just " bump into" these guys? In a shed...in the middle of....nowhere! Keep going Sam, we are waiting for you in Darwin!”
As a way to support Johnson’s cause, Robert allowed pictures be taken with him and co-star Guy Pearce. The picture was taken ten days before The Rover is initially scheduled to wrap filming by mid-March.
The top officials of the project have expressed gratitude to the community that made the filming of the futuristic, crime-thriller possible, hinting that it would soon come to an end. The Adelaide Crew announced on its website that The Rover is scheduled to wrap filming on March 16.
“We heartedly thank EVERYONE in Quorn for their extraordinary patience, hospitality and cooperative help and hard work with our shoot of the Rover,” Liz Watts, producer of The Rover and the film director, David Michod said in an excerpt from the joint letter written to the officials and members of the community in the southern part of Australia.
