Gordon made his film debut in 2009's “New Moon,” the second film based on Stephenie Meyer's best-selling book series about a human girl, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), who gets caught in a love triangle between her vampire boyfriend, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), and her best friend, Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), a Quileute Indian who taps his people's genetic ability to transform into werewolves.
As Embry, Gordon, 21, depicts another Quileute who is a member of the werewolf pack tasked with protecting the tribe from vampires.
He reprised the role in 2010's “Eclipse” and will play Embry again in the anticipated two-film finale “Breaking Dawn.”
“It's fun to kill vampires,” he said with a laugh. “I get to kill vampires and ... I get to be a big wolf.”
