Kiowa Gordon talks music and movies

Kiowa Gordon of the Twilight Saga Wolf Pack Talks Music and MoviesKiowa Gordon, Hualapai, is best known for playing Embry Call in the Twilight Saga movies. He appeared in the last three, and will also be in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2, the final installment, due to be released in November.

But acting is just one of his two passions—the other is music. After four years of concentrating on acting, and oh-by-the-way appearing in some of the biggest blockbusters of all time, he’s getting back to music; last week, he released his first single, “Taking Back My Summer,” recorded under the alias Nature Baby. It can be found on Soundcloud and iTunes. To keep up with his artistic pursuits, follow him on Twitter @CircaKiGordon.
And:What’s happening for you on the acting front? One film we’ve been hearing about is The Lesser Blessed—can you give us some scoop on that film and the character you play?

The Lesser Blessed is based off the novel by Richard Van Camp and adapted to film by Anita Doran. It’s a story centered on a First Nations teenager named Larry Sole, played by Joel Evans, who is trying to find his place in the modern world. I come in and show Larry the way. It’s set in the Northwest Territories and we filmed in Sudbury, Ontario. I play Johnny, he’s a bad boy. Johnny likes to get into scuffles and hook up with chicks. Johnny also likes to eat cheeseburgers and smoke cigarettes, but it’s Johnny’s responsibility to take care of his little brother Donny because his mom is an escort and his dad doesn’t live with them. Johnny is pretty screwed up in the head.

There will be a final Twilight movie in the fall. How does it feel to be at the end of that run?

It’s bittersweet. I’m ready to move on and start new projects. Both in film and musically.
