Kristen Stewart ready to break out

IN HER new film, the fantasy epic Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart plays a young princess who escapes deprivation and confinement, survives testing trials and acquits herself as a leader ready to claim what is rightfully hers.

The story is derived from a Brothers Grimm fairytale, but it has no shortage of contemporary relevance, especially for the American actress.

''She's been imprisoned by Twilight and this is her breakout,'' says Rupert Sanders, the British director making his first feature with Snow White and the Huntsman.

''Kristen's very talented and she's got a huge career ahead of her where she will constantly surprise people.''

As one of the few successful child actors to transition without a hitch into adult roles, Stewart feels like a familiar screen fixture despite being merely 22 years old.
