Interview Magazine caught up with Taylor Lautner:
MARTIN: So what’s in store for Jacob?
LAUTNER: He’s a lot different than he was before. He transforms mid-story in the first half, he’s Twilight Jacob. I’m wearing a wig. My character’s very clumsy, outgoing, and friendly. When he transforms into a werewolf, he becomes something very different. It’s like I’m playing a split personality. Which is tricky, because sometimes I’ve had to play pre- and post-transformation Jacob on the same day of filming.
MARTIN: What does it mean to turn into a werewolf?
LAUTNER: I think the most important thing with Jacob is that pre-transformation, he’s clumsy. He trips over his own feet. As soon as he transforms, he’s very agile. At one point, he flings himself through Bella’s window and lands at her feet, and that’s the first time Bella realizes this is a new Jacob: He never used to be this agile. I loved bringing out that side of him. The bummer is, when he becomes a wolf, that’s not actually me. When he does the cool fight scenes, he’s transformed into CGI.

Taylor seems like such a sweet guy. I am really glad they kept him for after Twilight. He busted butt to be everything they needed for Jacob Black.
I hope he had fun doing what stunts they allowed him to do.
What do you think of what Taylor had to say in this interview? Does it just make your mouth water in anticipation of seeing New Moon? (drool lol)
