Twilight star takes time out in Queenstown


An actor from the hit teen movie series The Twilight Saga was spotted in Queenstown this week.

Kellan Lutz, who played Emmett Cullen in the film series, rode with Shotover Jet on Monday.

Shotover jet-boat driver Rob Cowles told the Otago Daily Times Lutz was a pretty nice guy.

“We had a wee chat. He had his mum with him and was looking forward to going rafting after [jet-boating].

“I just asked him about what he was doing in Queenstown and [he said] he was enjoying his time in New Zealand.”

Lutz also appeared in the film Poseidon, voiced Tarzan in the 2014 animated film Tarzan and played Hercules in the 2014 The Legend of Hercules.
