‘He saves humans from vampires, basically,’ Gordon says of his character in the film. In his first-ever interview with MTV, thursday night, Larry Carroll caught up with Gordon at the red-carpet premier of the new Vanessa Hudgens flick “Bandslam.”

MTV: Give us your breakdown of the character, as we’ll see him in the movie.
Kiowa Gordon: I am Embry Call; he’s a Native-American. He lives on his res, and he goes into a transformation which freaks him out completely. He turns into a wolf. So he gets some extra baggage going there — and then he saves humans from vampires, basically.
MTV: You and some other “New Moon” stars were exposed to the public for the first time at Comic-Con. How was that?
Gordon: Yeah, I went to the Comic-Con for the “Twilight” screenings, and the question- and-answer [sessions], and it was crazy. They all started screaming as soon as we walked off the bus; the whole time we were answering questions they just kept screaming and screaming. It was so surreal for me. I’ve also gone to my own things — like I’ve gone to this unity conference out in New Mexico where Native American youths gather and share their tribal affiliations and all that awesome stuff. And [Twilighters were there and] they went crazy.
MTV: Taylor has said that he gets to speak the Native-American language of the tribe a bit in “New Moon.” Do you?
Gordon: No, I would just — we make noises.
MTV: Noises? Can you give us an example?
Gordon: Hopefully I won’t get in trouble for this. But yeah, [there’s a scene where] we get out of the car, and we have to do this call — this signal that we’re home. Me and Jared, we go [he unleashes a loud, yipping noise]. It’s kinda funny. But it’s awesome.
MTV: Wow. And that basically means “Hi Honey, I’m home”?
Gordon: [Laughs.] Yeah!
