He’s not the lead role in the Twilight Saga but if his ‘people’ had it their way, Kellen Lutz was auditioning for Edward.
After reading the script for Twilight for the first time Lutz actually rejected pressure from his team to play Edward. According to the Calvin Klein model it was the smaller roll he wanted with the main character Edward “too depressing”.
“They wanted me to audition for it and I kept saying no, no ,no,no" he told Nova Fm's Christo & Katie. "After the seventh time they were like what about his brother Emmet? So I re-read the script and loves his small part. He barely has any lines but he’s the comic relief." he said.
