MORE INFORMATION: Why is the first “Twilight” movie so blue?

Yes, just as you read it, the protagonist’s brother, who is characterized by having supernatural strength, being very funny, indiscreet, jovial, playful and mocking, was about to not appear in “” Part 1 and, obviously, in “Breaking Dawn” Part 2, fourth and fifth installments, respectively.

Kellan Kutz revealed why he hardly appears in the last two installments of the saga. According to him, there was a powerful reason that led him to think about leaving everything before starting to shoot “Dawn”which was divided into two feature films.

“I was happy to be there in ‘Twilight.’ But as the other movies went on and we just had to wait, I almost didn’t do the ‘Breaking Dawn’ movies because I was like, ‘Guys, mentally I need to be doing something’ and it was exhausting.”he began to say during an interview to the podcast hosted by Greene, who played her sister Alice Cullen, and Melanie Howe.

Not only that, the fact of waiting several hours sitting with makeup, while his turn came, was quite a challenge, causing him to lose interest in a project that he had been passionate about.

“I only have one life and if I only live to be thirty, I only spent a couple of months [esperando en el set]. My agent said, ‘But all the money you’re making?’ and I’m like, ‘You can’t take him with you. I really don’t care about the money. I have worked enough. I’m thankful we made the movies.’ But it got to the point where my passion, the sparkle in my eyes was no longer there and that’s worrying when you fall in love with what you do.”he pointed.

Kellan Lutz’s discomfort would have originated because he had just made the television miniseries “Generation Kill”, which was shot in South Africa with very active and action-packed scenes.

Going from an intense level to one where he had a more passive role because he played a supporting role in “Twilight” would have made him think that way. Fortunately, he eventually gave up on that idea.
