Taylor has studied karate since the age of six and appeared in a national ISKA event televised by ESPN in 2003. His karate coach, the former “Blue Power Ranger” on Power Rangers got Taylor started in acting and connected to the movie industry.
He first appeared in the made-for-television film Shadow Fury, and subsequently had roles on the series Summerland, The Bernie Mac Show and My Wife and Kids.
In 2011, he will star in the thriller Abduction co-starring Lily Collins.
Interests: Taylor is very talented in the study of martial arts, as he has won multiple local, national and international competitions. Taylor is a huge sports fan and enjoys watching football. His NFL role models include Brett Favre, Tom Brady and Jerry Rice. He is close friends with Twilight co-stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Nikki Reed.
“I was never extremely confident. Because I was an actor when I was in school, there was a little bullying going on.”
“(The Twilight phenomenon) is really unlike anything else. I know that over the past couple of years, I’ve had the time of my life and I’m very thankful, but it is different. It’s almost like you live two different worlds and you completely vanish and then you go back to your regular life.”
“We’re (Twilight cast) the same people that we were before and we have people behind us that kind of help us and think ahead and we’re just thankful to have that help. When we walk through hotels, we always walk through the kitchen or through the garbage room or the laundry room. It’s that not glamorous, trust me.”

I wonder what Taylor like when he is by himself and doesn’t have to smile for the camera…;)

Taylor also was the main character in the 2011 action movie Abducted which was my favorite movie with him as the actor. No one else could’ve pulled it off.
