Taylor Lautner steps into spotlight with first lead role

Thursday April 14, 2011

There is not a vampire or a werewolf in sight in Taylor Lautner's latest film.

The Twilight pinup has taken his first lead role in action-packed new thriller Abduction.

Taylor, 19, stars as Nathan, a teen who learns that he was abducted as a baby, and that his mother and father are not his real parents.

The young actor can be seen dodging bullets and leaping from exploding buildings in the September-released movie, also starring Sigourney Weaver, Maria Bello, Alfred Molina and Jason Isaacs.

Taylor's rumoured off-screen girlfriend, Lily Collins (pictured) – daughter of British musician Phil – also stars.
