Taylor Daniel Lautner was born on 11 February 1992 to Deborah, who worked for a software company, and Daniel, a pilot.He made his film debut in The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3D, which saw him take on the role of Sharkboy. He spent three months filming in Texas but the film wasn’t well received. Taylor’s star was still yet to shine.
After a few TV bit parts, Taylor landed the role of Eliot Murtaugh in Steve Martin comedy Cheaper By The Dozen 2. This film was also panned but Taylor was starting to make a (small) name for himself, and was nominated at the 2006 Young Artist Awards.
Christian Slater played Taylor’s dad in short-lived TV drama My Own Worst Enemy.
