Taylor Lautner on The Twilight Saga
10.05.09 by REELZ
Twilight Saga heartthrob Taylor Lautner caught up with BoxOffice.com to talk about all things Twilight. When asked what he likes about playing werewolf Jacob Black, the 17-year-old said:
I love Jacob and Bella's relationship. It's very different from Edward and Bella's. Jacob and Bella start off as really good friends. They become best friends — they can tell each other anything, they do whatever together, ride motorcycles. I love that.
And when asked what will draw a young male audience to the movie, he said:
There's a lot more action than Twilight. It's more exciting — it has werewolves and vampires, which creates fights because they don't get along. Not only does the action step up, but the whole story line does as well. Now there's a third person involved.
No one can fault Lautner's unwavering enthusiasm for his role as Jacob Black — he really does seem to love it. It's a good thing director Chris Weitz didn't replace him with an older, taller actor, or all hell would've broken loose.
