As Edward was working on his acting skills, he also started paying attention to his weight and started his weight loss journey. By 2010 he had lost so much weight that he had to use face prosthetics to mimic his heavyweight.

He earned a lot of fame from his role as Dudley, which was a blessing, but at the same time, he did not want to be recognized only for his role as Harry Potter’s brother, which is why he began looking for more opportunities.
