The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn--Part 2 marks the end of the widely popular franchise, which made Monday night's Los Angeles premiere bittersweet for its actors and fans. Although no future films are in the works, Taylor Lautner didn't rule out the possibility of a sequel or spin-off film.
Author of the Twilight series Stephanie Meyer may have wrapped the vampire-latent story at Breaking Dawn but that hasn't stopped fans and the media from hoping for a future film supported by the relationship between Lautner's "Jacob" and the on-screen daughter of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, "Renesmee."
"You never know. I mean, you guys are definitely making talk about it, so maybe it'll happen one day," Lautner told ET's Nancy O'Dell.
As the actors look forward to branching out of the franchise and onto new projects, the longtime Twilight actors, who have now been involved in the series for half a decade, are eager to continue on with their careers.
When recently discussing his future acting career, Lautner expressed relief that he would no longer have to take off his shirt in a film as much as he did in the Twilight series. While the 20-year-old actor may not enjoy showing his skin to the camera, he revealed that he will consider it if it's in a suitable capacity.
"It's complicated," he said. "I would love not to [take off my shirt]. If it makes sense for the role, then of course I would, but not just [nonsensically] taking the shirt off."
Although he's relieved to cease removing his shirt on command for Twilight, Lautner stated that he will miss the franchise. When prompted by O'Dell, he gave his advice to his 16-year-old self who began the franchise.
"The biggest thing I would tell myself is to soak up each and every moment because this thing...has been five years but it has flown by faster than I can ever imagine," he said. "I never thought I would be standing here having to say goodbye to this, and here it is. It's a very surreal feeling."
