Taylor Lautner didn’t know what he was letting himself in for when he signed up for the first ‘Twilight Saga’.

The 18-year-old actor – who plays werewolf Jacob Black in the vampire saga – admits the level of fame and attention he has received because of the vampire franchise was a huge surprise.

He said: “I just met the director and had no idea what I was getting myself into.”

However, the teenage star insists he has no regrets about any of his time in the movie series and is delighted with how his career is panning out.

He added: “It’s been great from then on”.

Taylor – who is expected to make over $25 million for ‘Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’, which will be split into two movies - also praised his “supportive” family, saying that they help to keep his feet on the ground.

He said: “I’m definitely thankful to have a supportive family, I wouldn’t have been able to do it without them.”

The actor recently admitted he still lives at home with his parents, and is expected to help out around the house.

He said: "I help out with the lawn, garbage, dishes".

Even when he is away filming, Taylor's parents don't let him off his duties when he returns to the family home.

He joked: "When I come back, I have extra mowing to do." - Bang Showbiz
