There’s nothing strange about co-stars befriending on set. Even if there are significant age differences on certain occasions, actors can benefit from getting to know each other during filming.
This is exactly what happened to Mackenzie Foy and Taylor Lautner.
Mackenzie Foy is an American actress and model and one of the young bright stars of Hollywood.
She comes from a working-class family, as her father was a truck driver and her mother a housewife.
Her love for modeling started at a very young age and she started getting her first acting gigs as soon as she turned 9.
She started modeling for Polo Ralph Lauren and Guess in print ads in 2004. After that, she also did some work for Walt Disney Company, Mettel and Gap.
When she was 9, her acting career began when she guest-starred on shows like ‘Hawaii Five-0’, ‘Till Death’ and ‘Flash Forward’.
She landed the lead role in the film adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s book “Breaking Dawn”, the final book of the Twilight Saga, in 2010.
Foy also got the chance to star in one of the most famous horror films of the past decade, “The Conjuring”, in 2012.
In the iconic movie “Interstellar”, Mackenzie played the role of Matthew McConaughey’s daughter (the children’s version).
Taylor Lautner is a well-known American model and actor, best known for his work in the Twilight movie saga.
In his early life, Lautner balanced acting classes with karate and sports. Earning a black belt at the age of 8, he played football for his high school with aspirations to become a professional athlete.
However, life had other plans and his acting career began playing roles in comedy series such as “The Bernie Mac Show” and “My Wife and Kids”.
What Happened Between Taylor Swift And Taylor Lautner?
He did some voice acting in “What’s New, Scooby-Doo?” and “Danny Phantom,” and he also starred in “The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3D.”
His big breakout role was as the werewolf teenage heartthrob, Jacob Black, in “The Twilight saga.” After becoming famous for his Twilight saga role, Lautner quickly became a sex symbol and teen idol.
In 2010, Lautner was named the highest paid teen actor in Hollywood. He also came in second on Glamour’s “The 50 Sexiest Men of 2010” list and fourth on People’s “Most Amazing Body” list.
Are Foy and Lautner friends?
Foy and Lautner met on the set of “Breaking Dawn, Twilight Saga Part 2” when Foy played Bella and Edward’s vampire daughter.
The two became very close during that time, and Lautner told MTV News during “MTV First: Taylor Lautner” that he and Foy, then 10, had become good friends.
He also said that she is a smart girl and that he expected her to grow into a serious actress.
Lautner was an inspiration to young Mackenzie and often encouraged her and helped her develop better acting skills with his advice.
Foy later said Taylor had given her very good advice on how to deal with the pressures of filming blockbuster projections.
Today there is no official information on whether they kept in touch or hang out from time to time, but we assume that nothing major happened that would ruin the friendship.
