The wolf starting to emerge (meet Kiowa Gordon aka Embry Call, Jacob's right hand man)!!!

New Moon hasn't hit the theaters yet but many fans are starting to get real excited and curious of the wolf pack. Well, glad that Indian Country Today had Kiowa Gordon talsk about his New Moon experience.

Kiowa Gordon will be playing Embry Call, member of the Quileute tribe and the increasingly popular “wolf pack”. Kiowa is 19 and lives on the Haulapai Indian Reservation in Arizona.

The fan screamed excitedly as he ran through the crowd at the San Carlos High School graduation. Gordon agreed to attend the graduation as a special guest. It was his first major public appearance since filming in Vancouver earlier this year.

During an interview prior to the graduation, Gordon said he was on track to earn a high school diploma at Career Success High School when he responded to the open casting call. He’s now set to earn a G.E.D.

“An acting coach worked with me for about an hour before the audition,” Gordon said.

In the interview he discusses getting cast, prepping for the role, and working on set.

Within a couple of weeks word came he landed the part of Embry Call. “My mom got an e-mail. She was ecstatic.” After speaking to the director on the phone, he was off to Los Angeles for a “cyberscan.” It’s a technique used in many movies to create real-life animation. “A machine went around my body to create a computer image so I could be transformed into a werewolf.”

“When I went to Vancouver, the first person I met was Alex Meraz. During the first three weeks I hung out with the wolf pack. We worked with a personal trainer. I gained five pounds. We all bonded and became like brothers,” Gordon said. “I’m the smallest (physically) but I’m the tallest.” Gordon is 5 feet 11 inches tall.

He describes a day of the set. “We spend an hour in makeup (basically) getting darker and they enhanced our abs,” laughs Gordon. “It was really cold, one degree Celsius. We wore robes before our shoots. All our scenes were outdoors. We had to get in the rain.”

Check out the rest of the interview at the link above.

All I can say is that it is good that Director Chris Weitz looks for authenticity when thinking of casting the wolf pack. It just makes the movie so close to the book. :)
