Minor league baseball player

"My mother... she's very young for her age. I think Phil makes her feel younger. At any rate, she's crazy about him."
Bella Swan on Renée Dwyer and Phil.[src]

Phil Dwyer is Renée Dwyer's second husband and Bella Swan's stepfather, as well as the stepfather-in-law of Edward Cullen and the step-grandfather of Renesmee Cullen.



Phil married Renée the same month Bella turned 17. They had planned to get married in Mexico, but that did not happen. Though Bella didn't like the fact that her mother remarried with someone younger than her, she found Phil quite decent and accepted him, and Phil adapted to Bella. However, because he is a minor league baseball player, he spends a majority of his time away from his new family. Renée stayed home with Bella, but she always missed him. Seeing how lonely her mom felt, Bella decided to move back to Forks and live with her biological father, Charlie, so Renée and Phil could travel together.

"Guys, c'mon. I love you both. We got a plane to catch."
―Phil's only line in the movies.[src]

In Twilight, Bella notes that Phil gave her a CD of his favorite band when she left, and she listens to it while in Forks. Eventually, Phil is able to get a contract signed with the Suns, a minor league baseball team set in Jacksonville, Florida, and he and Renée move there together.

At the beginning of the Twilight film, Phil is seen packing up the car in Phoenix to bring Bella to the airport, urging them to hurry, though his face isn't shown clearly.


Main article: Eclipse

In Eclipse, Bella and Edward pay a visit to Renée and Phil in Florida, but due to his busy schedule, he is constantly absent. Before Bella's graduation, Phil attempted to demonstrate a slide and tangled up with the catcher and broke his thigh bone, causing him and Renée to be unable to attend Bella's graduation.[1]

Phil and Renee in Bella's dream.

Phil's only appearance in the series is when he attends Bella and Edward's wedding. Like Renée, he has no knowledge of the existence of his step-granddaughter, Renesmee Cullen, or that Bella has become a vampire.

His face is more clearly seen for the first time in Breaking Dawn - Part 1, but doesn't speak at all.

Physical appearance

Phil's physical description is never fully explored, but it is known that he is bald, has blue eyes and is around 6 feet tall.


From Bella's description, Phil seems to be a decent man and very accepting to Bella. Like Renée, he has an adventurous spirit and likes to travel.

Phil is portrayed by Matt Bushell in the Twilight movie and by Ty Olsson in Breaking Dawn - Part 1.[2]
