Kiowa Gordon, the Embry Call of 'The Twilight Saga's New Moon', opens up about the wolf pack and how his character's transformation left Taylor Lautner's Jacob feeling friendless.
Little details related to "The Twilight Saga's New Moon", especially the wolf pack, have been shared by one of its cast members, Kiowa Gordon. During his red carpet appearance at the Thursday, August 6, premiere of "Bandslam", the Embry Call depicter talked to MTV about the wolf pack, his character and Jacob's confusion of Embry's involvement with the wolf pack.
"Alright, the head is Sam Uley - he's played by Chaske Spencer, who is a great guy," he shared when asked to break down the wolf pack. "He's the leader of the pack, he runs us and helps us go through our phase. Next is Jared - he transforms next, and he's the fun boy, the jokester. He's played by Bronson Pelletier, and he's a funny guy too - he's awesome, we became really close. And Alex Meraz plays Paul - he's the hotheaded, ferocious guy that always wants to be in the middle of the action, and he's the go-to guy if Sam needs something taken care of."
As for his character, Gordon detailed, "I am Embry Call; he's a Native-American." He furthermore explained that Embry "lives on his res, and he goes into a transformation which freaks him out completely. He turns into a wolf. So he gets some extra baggage going there - and then he saves humans from vampires, basically."
On his character's friendship with Taylor Lautner's Jacob Black, he revealed, "Jacob's really weirded out that I joined this cult of shirtless Natives." Explaining more on his remark, he went on further, "[We] thought that Paul, Jared, and Sam were just these [egotistical] guys that thought so highly of themselves and called themselves the protectors of the tribe, and I'm just the shy, lanky kid."
"Then Jacob sees me [join them] and he's like, 'Wow, I've lost a friend,' but that's really not the case; we can't tell Jacob or other Quileutes about our transformations until they have transformed themselves. Then, next in line is Jacob of course, and he's so natural to it; his wolf is stronger than like any other one."
"The Twilight Saga's New Moon" will be directed by "The Golden Compass" helmer Chris Weitz using the script penned by "Twilight Saga" screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg. Centering on the personal conflict Bella experiences following Edward Cullen's abrupt departure, it will follow the mortal beauty as she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and her loyalties tested.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart return for this "Twilight" sequel which is targeting a November 20 U.S. release. They are joined by many of the original cast members, including Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone and Nikki Reed, as well as new additions that consist of Dakota Fanning and Michael Sheen among others.
