American Actor and Martial Artist – Taylor Lautner
Taylor Lautner, born February 11, 1992 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, is an American actor and martial artist, best known for his family film performances in “The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D” and “Cheaper by the Dozen 2.”
Lautner is of French, Dutch, and German descent. He began studying karate at the age of six, training at Fabiano’s Karate School in Holland, Michigan. By the following year, he began winning tournaments. He proved himself by becoming the Junior World Forms and Weapons champion, winning three gold medals.
Lautner began his acting career after his martial arts instructor persuaded him to audition for a part in a Burger King advertisement in Los Angeles. Although he was unsuccessful, he enjoyed the experience so much that decided to pursue a career in acting.
Lautner made his acting debut in 2001, appearing in the made-for-television film “Shadow Fury.” He subsequently had roles on the series “Summerland,” “The Bernie Mac Show,” and “My Wife and Kids.” He has had small roles in a number of other television shows and movies, including “The Nick & Jessica Variety Hour.” In addition to television, he has been very successful in voice-over work.
His big break came in 2005 when, at the age of thirteen, Lautner won the role of Shark Boy in the Robert Rodriguez film “The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D.” In 2008, he was cast as Jacob Black in the movie adaptation of the book “Twilight” by Stephenie Meyer.
In his spare time, Lautner loves playing football and baseball, and he is a fan of the Texas Longhorns and Michigan Wolverines. He also participates in the “LA Hip Kids”, a hip-hop dance group, and “Hot Shots”, a performing jazz dance group.
