OK, Taylor Lautner fans, today is the day! “MTV First: Taylor Lautner” debuts in just a few hours, at 7:56 p.m. ET on air and online. The 19-year-old star will exclusively debut the first trailer from his upcoming action/thriller “Abduction,” after which the conversation will move to MTV.com where Lautner will sit down with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz for a 30-minute interview.
To hold you over until then, MTV News is pleased to present a little sneak peek of today’s epic interview, when Lautner talks about the end of his work on “The Twilight Saga” and what the cast reactions will be when filming wraps on the fourth and final film, “Breaking Dawn – Part 2.”
“I think it’s mixed emotions, for sure,” Lautner said of his feelings on nearing the end of filming. “Half of me says, ’This will be a relief. I get some time off, I get to spend some time with family and friends and do other things,’ but the other half says, ’This is going to be so weird.’ ”
When asked whether he thinks he and his fellow castmates will shed any tears, Lautner was man enough to admit that they’ll all likely share in some waterworks.
“Nobody will admit it right now, but I guarantee you there will be tears,” Lautner said.
In another sneak peek of our interview, Lautner addressed the inevitable comparisons between his character in “Abduction,” Nathan Price, and Jason Bourne . “I would say Nathan Price’s journey takes place before Jason Bourne’s started,” Lautner explained. “When Jason realized, when he was searching for his true identity, he was already a trained expert.”
