Emmett Cullen in The Twilight Saga
Tall, burly and articulate with an intense stare and unquestionable physical strength – there’s a few characteristic crossovers between Kellan Lutz and his alter-ego emmett Cullen that you notice when you meet the actor in the flesh. It’s fortunate the now 32-year-old doesn’t have a real thirst for blood as you suspect you wouldn’t stand a chance in hell of fending him off. Soon to be seen kicking more supernatural ass in sci-fi indie flicks Nest (aka Guardians Of
The Tomb) and Origin Wars, Lutz is more than willing to wax some lyrical thoughts about his former Twilight days for Afterlife…
Would you like to play the role again?
Heck yes! I loved playing emmett! He is a character after my own heart.
What’s the strangest request you’ve had from a fan?
If they should handcuff me, take me home, and…
Would any of your character’s skills or attributes be useful in real life?
I would love to have emmett’s super strength and to run that fast and play baseball that well! I’d be the best baseball player ever, haha!
Is there anything you think was left unfinished about the character’s story?
It would be great to show how emmett became a vampire and the short story of emmett and rosalie
Did you get any souvenirs from the set?
Yes… But that’s a secret.
What would it say on the character’s gravestone?
rosalie’s Monkey Man.
