As dusk sets on the “Twilight” saga with the final film, actor Taylor Lautner is looking at a new dawn for the next stage in his career.
As the other “man” in the “Twilight” triangle, Taylor Lautner can be counted on to shed his shirt at some point in every new movie. In “Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” he doesn’t disappoint.
Give the audience what they want, as they say. And when Taylor Lautner visited TODAY Friday, the screaming hordes of young women outside got exactly that — Lautner’s well-defined chest and abs, as Savannah Guthrie showed stills of him, shirtless, throughout the “Twilight Saga” years.
Taylor Lautner has grown up before audience’s eyes since the first Twilight film. The actor was just 15 when he auditioned for the role of Jacob. The now 20-year-old is ready for his character’s evolution to be complete as fans gear up for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2.
THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN PART 2 TAYLOR LAUTNER INTERVIEW (Exclusive Video) – Taylor Lautner sat down with ScreenSlam and expressed his love for the fans, excitement for the last movie, and appreciation for starring in this series. In The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Lautner reprises his role as Jacob, the werewolf who is in love with Bella. Being a part of this franchise for over four years, Lautner feels his relationships and identity have developed and shaped him into who he is.
“Something like this doesn’t come around too often, and you have to understand that this is one-of-a-kind. Of course your goal is to create something like this again, something that this many people love, but Twilight is Twilight and that’s about it.” – Taylor Lautner
PLOT: After the birth of Renesmee, the Cullens gather other vampire clans in order to protect the child from a false allegation that puts the family in front of the Volturi.
