Taylor Lautner (born in Los Angeles, California) is an actor, voice actor, model, and martial artist from the United States.
Despite beginning his career as a child actor, Lautner later grew into adult roles and became well-known as Jacob in the Twilight film series. Taylor Lautner’s fame has soared since his Disney Channel debut, with publications frequently ranking him among the “Most Beautiful People” in their ranks.
He was also once Hollywood’s highest-paid teenage actor, according to Forbes magazine.
Yet, the question that rings in everyone’s mind is, what is Lautner’s net worth currently?
Lautner was born on February 11, 1992. He is the son of Deborah and Daniel Lautner. Taylor has two younger siblings, a sister named Makena Lei (born 1995) and a brother named Makoa (born 1997). His mother is of Hawaiian descent, while his father was mostly of European ancestry.
Taylor grew up in Grand Rapids with his parents and attended Kenowa Hills High School throughout his high school years.
His family owned a construction company that helped him develop an interest in acting early on, as his mother had been involved in theater while growing up herself. As he got older, he attended high school.
Still, he continued training privately for auditions during the day until graduation came around.
After that, he moved out of state to Los Angeles to pursue bigger opportunities there. During this period, before being cast on Twilight’s first installment, “The Adventures of Sharkboy & Lavagirl” came along, and he didn’t let it pass.
After filming Twilight, he moved to Los Angeles for one month before returning home because he disliked being recognized every day on set there.
