“It does feel like we’re graduating high school,” Lutz told Celebuzzat the launch of iD gum in New York on Wednesday.
Over the last five years, the 27-year-old has grown up with his Twilight character, Emmet Cullen. With the release of the last installment of the wildly popular series — The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 — approaching, Lutz revealed that although he’s excited for what’s ahead, he’s going to miss Emmett.
What did the star say?
“It’s definitely bittersweet now that Twilight’s coming to an end,” Lutz tell us. “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 — I’ll take parts of him with me, as we all do, when I create backstories for different characters.”
Despite the recent relationship drama surrounding the film’s two leads — Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart — Lutz isn’t worried that headlines will overshadow the fourth and final film. “The fans love the movies for what they are,” he said.
And it’s the fans who have made The Twilight Saga a worldwide phenomenon.
“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 — to have Kellan fans — 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.”
