FILMCLUB Meets Taylor Lautner
The Twilight and Abduction hunk talks to the education charity…
Hollywood heartthrob Taylor Lautner (The Twilight Saga) and newcomer Lily Collins (The Blind Side) have been talking to education charity FILMCLUB about their new action-packed film Abduction – which is showing in UK cinemas now.
The teen sensation told the charity about making the movie and what it was like to perform his own stunts, telling them:
“It was very exciting, some of them were definitely challenging but that was fun for me and probably my favourite stunt to film was probably right at the very beginning of the movie where I’m riding of the hood of this truck and we’re flying down the road and I actually got to do that and I definitely didn’t think I would be able to but it was a lot of fun.”
Speaking of his first major role outside of The Twilight Saga, Taylor told the charity about his character, Nathan, saying:
“Yes, Nathan is an average high-schooler who seems to be living a normal life until he finds a picture of himself on a missing persons website and then its an action-drama-thriller-romance - its very exciting. The main thing is the journey that my character goes on. I knew this movie would be a huge challenge for me.”
FILMCLUB, who believe that watching a wide variety of films educates and inspires young people, asked co-star Lily Collins what her advice would be for youngsters considering a career in the film industry – either in front of or behind the camera.
She told the charity; “I always think about persistence. Myself, whenever I’m told “No” I don’t take it as “No, never” I take it as a “Not right now.” So I think if you’re passionate about something and if that’s film, whether that’s behind the camera, in front of the camera, the mechanical side, technical side, the artistic side I think its really important to just keep going, and don’t let “No” stop you.”
