One of the most challenging aspects technically for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn filmmakers was accurately bringing Stephenie Meyer’s unique character Renesmee to screen.

But Taylor Lautner, who plays Jacob in the Saga, had a challenge of his own.

As fans know, Jacob imprints on Renesmee in the Breaking Dawn book. It was important that for the movie, Lautner’s portrayal could be one that was affectionate to Bella and Edward’s child but not seem creepy. He addressed the topic in a new interview with Reuters.

“It was a challenge, and it is so complicated, but really nobody understands it more than Stephenie Meyer who created it,” Lautner said. “I was picking her brain all day long about it. She basically told me over and over again, ‘Taylor, stop trying to overthink it, stop trying to take it different places … It’s a life-long bond between two people, that’s it.’ In the movie, (Renesmee) is 10 years old, it’s much more of a protector relationship right now, and of course the relationship will grow but we don’t explore that, but it was important for me to keep it simple.”

Fans will ultimately decide if Lautner pulled off a fitting on-screen relationship with Renesmee, played by Mackenzie Foy. Read the rest of Reuters’ interview with Lautner over on their site.

Breaking Dawn – Part 2 opens in theaters on November 15.

    Tough break for him really. There’s no getting away from it that most people will agree it’s a bit creepy.

  • DarrlynM

    Nope, still creepy

  • Betsy

    Even more creepy? There’s a good chance that the reason why Jacob was so adamantly attracted to Bella and protective of her was because of the half of the genetic material inside her that would become Renesmee. :) Twilight is the best horror story ever!

      So he was imprimated with her egg, basically…

      • KleppMelk

        Many has pointed it out before, but following this logic he should have imprinted on Edwards sperm as well. Might explain why there was so much unintentional homoerotic undertones between them despite their hostility.

      • Betsy

        But women carry all their eggs with them their whole lives, whereas sperm are generated on a regular basis.

        • Betsy

          Bah, replying to Kleppmelk.

          • Betsy

            Or, imprinting has a biological component that only deals with genetic material inherited from the mother.

  • Ebee

    In the book it does say how they are whatever the other person needs them to be eg – Best friend, husband, protector. So as long as he play protector/best friend it will be fine!! Not that it won’t be amazing anyway!!! :L xx
