Taylor Daniel Lautner (born February 11, 1992) is an American actor and martial artist. His roles include the family films The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, and Jacob Black in the Twilight film series.


Early life

Lautner was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the son of Deborah, who works for a software development company, and Daniel Lautner, a commercial airline pilot.[1] He was raised in Hudsonville, Michigan, and attended Jamestown Elementary School until the age of eleven when the family moved to the Santa Clarita area.[2] Lautner is of mostly Dutch, French, and German descent,[3][4] and claims some Native American (specifically Ottawa and Potawatomi) ancestry through his mother.[3] He has a younger sister, Makena.[1]

Lautner trains in the martial arts, having studied karate at Fabiano's Karate School in Holland, Michigan from the age of six.[2][5]



Lautner began acting in 2001, appearing in the made-for-television film Shadow Fury. He subsequently had roles on the series Summerland, The Bernie Mac Show, and My Wife and Kids.[1] He also appeared in a number of other television shows and movies, including The Nick & Jessica Variety Hour. He appeared as himself in America's Most Talented Kids, putting on an exhibition of his Martial Arts skills. In addition to television, Lautner has been very successful in voice-over work. Lautner has booked a recurring role as Youngblood on the cartoon Danny Phantom, and has recorded episodes of What's New, Scooby-Doo? and He's a Bully, Charlie Brown.[6] Lautner has also been booked as a series regular on a pilot presentation called Which Way Is Up?, in addition to voicing the character of Silas in the animated series Silas and Brittany.[7]

In 2005, Lautner won the role of Shark Boy in the Robert Rodriguez film, The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D.[6] He spent three months on location in Austin, Texas filming.[7] Months later, he successfully auditioned to play Elliot, the son of the Bakers' rivals, in Cheaper by the Dozen 2.[6]

In October 2008, Lautner played Christian Slater's son in the television series My Own Worst Enemy, until the show was canceled after only 9 episodes.[8] Lautner then played Native American character Jacob Black in Twilight, the movie adaptation of the novel by Stephenie Meyer.[9] Due to major physical changes that occur in the character of Jacob Black throughout the series, the director of Twilight's sequel, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, considered replacing Lautner with a different actor in the second film.[10] In an attempt to keep the role, Lautner weight-trained extensively and gained approximately 30 pounds.[11] Lautner reprised his role as Jacob in New Moon.[2] Lautner has also been cast in the film Valentine's Day as Tyler Harrinton.[12] Lautner will take the lead role as Max Steel in the Paramount film production of the animated television series Max Steel.[13]

Lautner hosted Saturday Night Live on December 12, 2009, making him one of the youngest celebrity hosts in the show's history.[14] Lautner is currently the highest paid teenage actor.[15]

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
