Madame Tussauds London explains in a press release that the Jacob Black of the 'Twilight Saga' series happens to be one of the most requested personalities in 2011.
Another "Twilight Saga" star is being immortalized in wax. Taylor Lautner, who becomes a household name for portraying Jacob Black in the film series, is getting his first wax figure at Madame Tussauds museum. His doppelganger is expected to be unveiled in London in January 2012.
In a press release, Madame Tussauds London revealed that the 19-year-old actor's sculpture will join co-star Robert Pattinson's likeness in the A-List Party at the attraction to commemorate the 250th birthday of late founder Madame Marie Tussaud. The organization additionally noted that he was "one of the most requested personalities in 2011."
This news came less than a month after Lautner and his co-stars, Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, were honored with hand and footprint ceremony outside the Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. He at the time expressed his gratitude by saying, "There are a few moments that mean so much it's really even hard to explain. And this is definitely one of those."
Beside Lautner, Olympic diver Tom Daley as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are also included on the slate for 2012 additions. Daley will have his figure, which will be suspended at a height, unveiled in February. Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton will join the Royal line-up to celebrate their first wedding anniversary in early April.
