Kellan Lutz Interview In Just Jared

Kellan Lutz gave an exclusive interview to Just Jared:

“Just Jared: Talk to us about concluding the Twilight films now that you filmed the last 2 movies…

Kellan Lutz: I look back, and you know, I was working as an actor, it was really cool, I was very fortunate. I had just finished up Generation Kill which took me seven months in Africa and a very epic project to work with for HBO and then I got on the ride of Twilight and that took off and it’s like Superman, the ride at Six Flags, where you just shoot and you have no idea what’s going on and it just continuously gets higher and higher and more enjoyable.

JJ: Coming from the HBO projects, I’m sure you had many ideas for your career, not knowing Twilight would become what it was, did you almost turn down the role?

KL: Yeah, I didn’t want to do it. I spent so much time filming in Africa, seven months, and that’s a long time to be away from your family and dogs. My agent wanted me to read for Edward and I read the script and thought that character was too depressing for me right now, I want to do something where I smile. I wanted to take a break from acting and I said that, I turned it down, I turned down the audition a couple of times. Ryan, my agent at the time really knew it was going to be a special project so he told me to read the role of Emmett, and I read it, it was only about four lines, but he was the big brother, the comedic relief and I fell in love with him. I said “Sure, I would love to play this type of role”. I auditioned, and long story short, here I am finishing the saga and Emmett is going to be in my heart forever.”

  1. Ashley S. says:

    Team emmett all the way bc he is my favorite character in twilight. As soon as i saw it i choose emmett i like him bc everyone was like oh im team edward, bella and jake. Edward and bella arent my favorite characters.

  2. Of all the actors picked to play those characters, his was the absolute most perfect! His was the Emmett I saw in my head. Nikki, Peter, Ashley, I love them all now, but they were never my physical images of those characters, but Kellan was from the very beginning, I didn’t have to imagine anything…his will be a long career as he gets better and better…Did anyone else hear that he and Ashley are looking for a apartment together? They will make great room mates I bet..
