Pressure on Taylor for New Moon!

Buddy Tv has an article on the success of New Moon being put on Taylor Lautners' rather broad shoulders.

"And pressure it is, indeed. He almost didn't get the role, remember? It was a mix of fan clamor and the need for continuity (that was eventually broken when Rachelle Lefevre lost Victoria for Eclipse) that powered his return, I think. And then came the hard work: he did work out a lot and, according to Taylor himself, the 11-month training got too much at one point. "My body fat got so low that we actually needed to increase it a little bit," he said. "My trainer would be like, 'Go have a huge milkshake just so I can get a thousand calories into your body.'"
Thankfully he's dealing well with the pressure, and everyone's noticing it. "I think that Taylor is really going to surprise people in the movie," Weitz told the magazine. "People have seen his body and all that stuff and it's a shocker because it's hard to believe that anyone can be quite so carved. But he actually delivers a really great performance. He wasn't just exercising all day, he was also reading the book quite a lot."
