Celebuzz has a feature on Alex Meraz who will be playing Paul in New Moon. Alex friend Raoul Trujillo talks about the rising star.
“Nabbing the key role in Twilight was no fluke for the young actor. “If there’s anyone I have known in my life that deserves this, it’s Alex,” says Trujillo. “He’s worked his ass off in the time I have known him. He never lets up.”
Beyond staying in top physical shape, the actor-student works hard on honing his craft, including his New Moon audition. “Alex drove from Phoenix to my ranch in New Mexico on his birthday weekend so I could help him with his audition,” says Trujillo. “It’s about 8 hours each way. But he knew he needed to get this done.”
“He’s humble,” says Trujillo. “And he always showed that he was willing to listen and learn.”
