Taylor Lautner EXCLUSIVE: ‘It was weird going back to Twilight’

Taylor Lautner may have made his name thanks to co-starring alongside Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in Twilight, but returning to the role of Jacob Black after taking on other film roles was 'weird'.

He said: "As soon as I finished filming Abduction I had to jump right into Breaking Dawn and that was weird because I had just been living Nathan Price for the last three months.

"So to go back to Jacob Black was another transition for me. But it's what we do as actors, and it's why I love what I do.

And Taylor that's why we LOVE you.

But things worked both ways for the star. At first he struggled to leave Twilight filming behind him and focus on a new character.

"When you've played a character for three years and then you're thrown into a totally different world, it is a little strange at first."

With the success of Twilight resting on his well-toned shoulders, Taylor said he didn't let that hold him back from enjoying his role in Abduction.

"I didn't draw a comparison, and I'm really just extremely proud of this movie and I know that everyone who worked on the film is just as proud.  I'm excited for everyone to see it."

And if you didn't catch it in the cinema, you'll need to watch the DVD as you'll get to witness that body in action thanks to some physical scenes…

"The stunts are a lot of fun, so it's also an excuse for me to have some more fun while I'm working," Taylor added.

"I love 'living' the characters that I play as much as possible while I'm on set, so if I have the opportunity, then I want to do everything that this character has to go through.  I want to experience everything that he experiences."

We only wish we could share said 'experiences' with Taylor in real life. *Sighs*

Abduction is out now on DVD and Blu-ray
