After being in the band 100 aber from 2008 to 2012, the actor who played Jasper Hale continued, television and small films after The Twilight saga ended, but also focused on making more music and dropping a solo album called American Spirit Blues.
In one of the odd turns of fate that fortunately turned out to be OK, Rathbone was aboard a Jetblue flight in 2014 that had to make an emergency landing after an engine explosion. He tweeted all about it, including how he and his wife since 2013, Sheila Hafsadi, and the 2-year-old son, Monroe, had to exit via the emergency slide.
He establishes his home in Austin, Texas, with Sheila and their three children: Monroe, daughter Presley and son Felix, who was just born in January 2020.
A video he posted of himself on April 7, 2020, playing his guitar, deserved a comment from his Twilight sister Nikki Reed, who wrote, “Omg this made me miss you! Thinking of Portland and the many late nights that see you play 25 interventions at once and completely in awe of your multi-tasking skills.”
