Breaking Dawn 2 star Kellan Lutz equates the final film in the Twilight series with graduating from high school, and admits that upon graduation he will truly miss Emmett Cullen.
According to a report from Celebuzz, Lutz spent five years growing up on the Twilight set with cast members he'll cherish for life. He also grew rather fond of his character, Emmett Cullen, who was a huge part of his formative film years.
"It does feel like we're graduating high school," Kellan said during a recent interview.
Far from graduating from high school, however, the actor has definitely made his mark on the film world.
"It's definitely bittersweet now that Twilight's coming to an end," he says. "It's been such a blessing to be a part of it. I love my character. I wish I could play my character Emmett in every movie going forward. And I will Â— I'll take parts of him with me, as we all do, when I create backstories for different characters."
When asked if he feels the recent Kristen Stewart cheating debacle and/or the reconciliation between her and Robert Pattinson will positively or negatively impact Breaking Dawn Part 2, Lutz had the following to say.
"The fans love the movies for what they are," he said.
He does admit to enjoying some of the pre-promotion for the upcoming film that took place without Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
"That's what is so touching," he said. "To have fans outside who have come onboard because of my character Emmett, but now to have them calling my name Â— to have Kellan fans Â— come to New York. There's no Rob. There's no Kristen. There's no Taylor [Lautner]. It warms my heart. I really have made some great friendships here."
Kellan Lutz deserves this attention. Long overshadowed by Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and yes, even Taylor Lautner, he fell to the background in all of the Twilight films, but has definitely proven himself as an excellent actor.
Will you miss Emmett Cullen the way Kellan will? Or are you more hung up on one of the more prominent Twilight characters?
