Lutz got his big break after landing the role of Emmett, the super strong brother of the Cullen family, in the movie Twilight. He also posed as a model for Calvin Klein's underwear.

In 2011 Lutz landed the role of Poseidon, God of the Sea, in Immortals. He is now filming an upcoming animated action/adventure film Guardians of Luna, slated for a release sometime in 2012.

Personal life


As a child his family moved around and he grew up in North Dakota, the Midwest and Arizona. Upon high school graduation, Lutz relocated to California to attend Chapman University and study Chemical Engineering, but left in order to pursue a career in acting. He was born out of a large family, comprising six brothers and a sister.

Lutz has a great passion for sports - weight training, track, baseball, basketball, skateboarding, lacrosse, swimming, tennis, racquetball, badminton, snow skiing, skydiving, para-sailing, motorcross, whitewater rafting, and snowboarding. Lutz' official site lists his talents as being fluent in Spanish, some Latin, and good at dialects. He has stated he would have gone on to be a Navy SEAL if acting opportunities hadn't come along. He also has a dog called Kola. He is very close friends with Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson, his Twilight co-stars. He has known Greene since before filming Twilight. Lutz currently lives in Los Angeles.

Lutz starred in a PETA ad with his rescued mutt Kola to tell fans, "Adopt, Don't Buy."


"Well my family is really supportive of it all and is glad to see me on TV or on the big screen which is great. As far as school, well it affected that greatly since I quit going to school to take the biggest risk of my life and pursue acting. I worked my butt off in high school and received a lot of scholarships for college and to throw all that away for acting was tough for my family, but it was just something I felt my heart pulling me towards and don't regret a single minute of it. I love to act!"

About the Twilight cast, he says, "This cast rocks! We get along so well together it's like a real family which is great to see."

"I love life way too much and find fun in almost anything. I'm a chameleon."
