What happened to Taylor Lautner?

TWILIGHT fans have wondered what happened to Taylor Lautner after the franchise ended in 2012.

Since his days playing Jacob Black in the film trilogy about vampires, the actor has taken on more low-key roles and has taken a step back from the spotlight.

Where is Taylor Lautner now?

The Hollywood hunk is still acting, but hasn't appeared in any television shows or movies for years.

He's expected to star in the upcoming film Home Team, which is set to release sometime in 2022.

Taylor launched his career by appearing in comedy shows such as The Bernie Mac Show and My Wife and Kids but rose to fame for his role as Jacob Black in the Twilight franchise.

In his private life, he has been dating influencer and registered nurse Taylor Dome since 2018. The couple share two dogs together.

On November 11, 2021, Taylor proposed to Dome. Both of them shared the news on their social media accounts two days later.

The proposal featured dozens of candles and rose petals, with a neon sign in the background that read "Lautner".

The actor boasts a whopping 6.9million followers on Instagram.

What was the last movie Taylor Lautner starred in?

Taylor's acting career took a dip after the Twilight series ended, as he was unable to avoid being typecast due to the shadow that the trilogy cast over his future.

His 2011 film, Abduction, was a commercial and critical failure, and so was his 2015 film The Ridiculous 6. Both earned exceptionally low ratings.

Of Abduction, Movieline’s Alison Wilmore wrote, “This may be the first film I’ve ever seen where when an actor goes to put his hand thoughtfully on his chin, it’s so awkward I became afraid he’d somehow miss and poke himself in the eye.”

He hasn't appeared on screen since 2018's television series Cuckoo.

His last movie was 2016's Run the Tide, but Taylor made it clear in interviews that acting wasn't his only source of happiness.

“It’s not easy to move out of the shadow of a hit like Twilight. But he’s still very young. There’s time for Taylor to become more than just Jacob,” an unnamed source told The Hollywood Reporter.

The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl sequel, We Can Be Heroes. was released on Netflix late last year.

Taylor Lautner played Sharkboy in the 2005 film but J.J. Dashnaw took over the role in the Netflix release We Can Be Heroes.

"I did call Taylor [Lautner] to let him know, 'there's no dialogue. It’s not about the parents. It’s not really a sequel – you’d have your face covered the whole time,'" director Robert Rodriguez told Decider.

"I wanted him to kind of look like Batman.

"There wasn’t a big enough role for him to do. It wasn’t about those characters.

"It was fine if he couldn’t be in it, because it would draw more attention to it. He became such a big star after Twilight that he would have an expectation."

What has Taylor said about the Twilight films?

Taylor once alluded to the fact that he felt pigeonholed by his role as Jacob Black.

“For me the biggest thing is just surrounding myself with people that I love, just spending time, it doesn’t matter what I’m doing as long as I’m with my friends and my family," he said.

"You know, I could be sitting in a cardboard box and that’s where I’m happiest.”

Although the actor has not picked up much work over the last few years, he is still said to be worth $40million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
