While we all may get distracted with Edward's brooding and Jacob's abs we all know who is the biggest scene stealer.

Charlie.

If you've seen all of the scenes with Charlie there is no denying that he provides most of the comic relief to the mostly-intense Twilight Saga films. His awkward father figure character just makes the movies perfect.

Billy Burke who plays Charlie in all of the Twilight films told Zap2it, "I love the dynamic between Charlie and Bella."

So do we.

"Kristen and I try to keep it really organic," Billy explains, "We go into it with no over thought or preconception."

One of the most awkward experience a girl can have with her father is "The Talk." Yes, THE talk. If you have seen the third installment of the Twilight Saga, Eclipse, you already know that this awkwardness makes it into the film, and happens to be Billy's favorite scene.

"That scene between us in the kitchen, with that awkward talk about protection and sex is my favorite in this movie. It's a nice departure to just have a very real moment like that, and Kristen played it brilliantly."

The best part about Billy's character Charlie is that he's completely oblivious to the whole magical world that Bella is now a part of. He unknowingly steps into a really dangerous situation between Edward and Jacob as if he can keep control of the two "boys," when in reality there's no way he could stand a chance against the vampire and werewolf who are fighting for the love of his danger-prone daughter.

His lack of knowledge of the "magic" gives us a lot of laughs, "Charlie steps in all tough, with no idea that these two kids could just completely waste him. From the outset we kind of found levity in Charlie. Catherine Hardwick, the director of the first film, realized that Charlie is the only real connection to reality in the film. With that, there has to be some comedy."

There is plenty! What do you think about the character Charlie?
