Kiowa Gordon is a Native American living in Scottsdale with his mother. His mother just happens to go to church with Stephenie Meyer and the rest is New Moon history....
New Moon is your first film. What was the casting process like?
They had an open casting call here in Phoenix, and I auditioned. I was going to
church with my mom out in Cave Creek, and Stephenie Meyer goes to church with her. She kind of helped me out on that one.
Did Stephenie suggest you?
Yes, she told production, I think, and got me some sides to do the audition.
How did the wolves come together as a pack?
They got us a personal trainer, and we just went to the workouts and got to know each other. We saw each other’s strengths and pushed each other’s buttons; we really bonded during that time. We’d go out to eat a lot and watch movies …
What was your favorite scene to shoot?
I call it the “muffin scene.” It’s right after Bella finds out we’re all werewolves, and we take her to Emily’s house while Jacob, Paul, and Sam are off in the woods taking care of some wolf business.
And you eat muffins.
Yeah. A lot.
Some weird bran muffins. They didn’t taste so good!
