NATICK — “The Twilight Saga” is taking over the world, and Kellan Lutz took over the Natick Collection Mall to promote “New Moon.” The actor took part in a Q & A session with around 500 fans and made sure everyone would buy their tickets for the second installment of the saga, which comes out on November 20th. Watch the video below to see Lutz interact with his fans, answering their questions and joking about his cast mates, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
Fans got to submit their questions before the Q & A session and Lutz, who plays Emmett in “Twilight,” answered some randomly selected questions and made the fans swoon with his charm. Here are some of the questions he got to answer.
QUESTION: How do you feel about being part of one of the biggest movie franchises of all time?
KELLAN LUTZ: You know what? It’s a real, it’s an honor to be a part of something that fans are so loyal to and support. It’s a magic carpet ride. To all of us actors, I think we really are living in this “Twilight” zone and it really hasn’t sunk into how big of a phenomenon it is.
Q: What is you favorite part of playing the role of Emmett?
KL: I love how much fun he gets to pick at Bella, especially in “Eclipse.” Kristen Stewart is amazing. Just to make her laugh when we were shooting and have her crack up. She would be like “I’m sorry Kellan, I can’t take it!” It’s so funny. It’s fun.
Q: What is it like playing a tough big brother?
KL: I have a lot of experience playing a tough big brother. I have a large family and I got picked on growing up and I did some picking on the little ones. So it’s always fun playing the big brother role, especially trying to crack jokes on Rob when he doesn’t get it. Again, we have such a great cast and we’re all, without any of us it wouldn’t be the family that we’ve forged.
Q: What is your favorite non-Emmett scene in “New Moon?”
KL: I’ll have to say just watching the Volturi. I never got the chance to meet them. But Michael Sheen’s amazing. I finally got to meet them while shooting "Eclipse," and they are a great group of actors.
Q: Do you have any secrets you can share with us about "Eclipse?"
KL: I’m topless throughout the whole movie, pretty much!
Q: What are your plans for after “The Twilight Saga” ends?
KL: I’m gonna cry and be depressed. I love being a part of this franchise. To have all you guys, fans, and to play Emmettâ€¦I wake up happy everyday and I’m not sad. But when it’s all said and done, I want to be the next action star. I want to play Jason Bourne.
