He is best known for playing Emmett Cullen in The Twilight Saga film series (2008–2012), and has since played Poseidon in the 2011 film Immortals, Tarzan in the 2013 animated film Tarzan, The Expendables 3 (2014) and Hercules in the 2014 film The Legend of Hercules.


Lutz was born Kellan Christopher Lutz, the middle child of one sister and six brothers. He was born in Dickinson, North Dakota, and was raised throughout North Dakota, the Midwest, and Arizona. He started modeling when he was 13 or 14 years old. After graduating high school he moved to California to attend Chapman University for chemical engineering, but later decided to pursue an acting career instead.[1] Had he not chosen this path, however, he also considered trying to become a Navy SEAL.[1][2]

In Lutz's free time, he likes to take part in extreme skateboarding, weight training, track, baseball, basketball, lacrosse, swimming, tennis, racquetball, badminton, snow skiing, snowboarding, dance, and numerous other activities.[2] He also has a passion for horror films, and prefers to perform his own stunts when making films.[3]

Lutz has close friendships with his Twilight co-stars, particularly Ashley Greene and Jackson Rathbone whom he knew before the film began filming.[4] He says that his twenty-third birthday was spent with the cast, saying, "I hung out with the cast of Twilight and went on a crazy adventure with a loony cab driver."[5]
