Born in Michigan in 1992, Taylor Lautner spent his childhood with his younger sibling Makena in nearby Hudsonville. However, the future star’s first big passion wasn’t acting but karate; in fact, after having attained his black belt aged just eight, Lautner went on to win a handful of junior world championship titles. He was coached by Michael Chaturantabut, the Xtreme Martial Arts founder who had once starred in Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue as the Blue Ranger.

On his mentor’s advice, however, Lautner began to pursue an acting career while simultaneously balancing his interests in karate, football, baseball and dance. Then, after relocating to Los Angeles with his family, he landed his first major role in TV movie Shadow Fury. Supporting parts in My Wife and Kids, The Bernie Mac Show and Summerland would follow.
