"They are very intense, but it's cool that they're so dedicated and so passionate," the Jacob Black depicter in "Twilight" shares his opinion about his obsessive fans.
Featured in the August issue of Interview Magazine, Taylor Lautner has the chance to speak up about his fans, especially those who are obsessed with him. "They are very intense, but it's cool that they're so dedicated and so passionate," the Jacob Black depicter in "Twilight" says. "They're the reason we're here doing this sequel (The Twilight Saga's New Moon). So I'm thankful for the fans. I like meeting them. But, yeah, they're pretty intense. Sometimes it becomes a little overwhelming."
The 17-year-old star, moreover, says that he and his co-stars in the vampire drama movie often have encountered screaming fans. "We've met many different fans: the criers, who come around quite often; the hyper-ventilators who stop breathing and have to have a medic come. We've definitely seen some passion," he admits.
Asked on how he feels toward those obsessive fans, Taylor claims "I don't even know. I don't know if it's really hit me yet. They're just passionate for the series and for the characters, and we're just lucky enough to be a part of this. I don't think it has much to do with me personally; it's more because I'm playing the beloved Jacob Black."
Speaking of his future plans, Taylor reveals he wants to try his hand at different genres of film, stating "I love action films. I'd love to do an action drama. I'm always looking to give my character something action-oriented to do."
On the things he would love to do if he doesn't act, he tells Interview Magazine, "I always played sports when I was young. I played football and baseball for eight years. I loved football. So maybe I'd be doing some kind of sport. I also loved writing and directing. So maybe that could be in my future too. I'd love to get into that."
