When I was talking about Twilight I made the comment that Jacob was a fresh faced kid who had been recruited off the rez. I SWEAR I heard that, like, on NPR or something. I probably should have done my research though.
Apparently Taylor was the same boy from Sharkboy and Lava Girl and has been acting for years. Didn't live on a reservation but may have been chosen during the casting call for Native Actors last January. I don't know. Anyway, wanted to put that out there so people didn't think I was a total moron.
