Booboo Stewart: Martial Arts to Teen Wolf in 'Breaking Dawn'

World Championship in 2002 and 2003.
Never did he imagine things would happen so quickly.

Booboo Stewart may play a wolf on screen, but he moves like a ninja in real life.

The 17-year-old jack-of-all-trades stars as Seth Clearwater in "Breaking Dawn," the latest installment of the "Twilight" series. After hanging around his father, a stunt coordinator, on sets when he was younger, Stewart became hooked. At age 10, he did his first stunt, playing a little Indian boy who got hit over the head with a tomahawk. That's when he knew he wanted to get into the business.

"Yeah, it's crazy," Stewart said. "'Twilight' has been such a major thing for my career. I just got back from a premiere in Denmark, and after that night, I thought, 'Oh my gosh, this is insane. Being part of 'Twilight' is amazing. So many people are trying to do what I'm doing right now, it's really an awesome feeling."

"Awesome" only begins to describes Stewart's talents. Save his on-screen chops as a wolf, he plays guitar and sings in a band with his two sisters which got a record deal with Walt Disney records, and he'll star as Nick Young, a teenager with Asperger's Syndrome in the 2012 film "White Frog."

CGI took care of the fighting sequences in "Twilight," but Stewart could have probably held his own pretty well. He won the Junior Martial Arts World Championship in 2002 and 2003, but is fairly humble about his days wielding weapons and sparring.

"I don't really bring it up, people just find out. I just think it's cool," Stewart said. "They think it's crazy, it's so crazy to be a World Champion so young. I don't know what I really think about it. It's just … it's a really neat thing to do, so hopefully I can return to it one day."


Fearnet Interviews Booboo Stewart & Julia Jones

Twilight is about two factions: the werewolves and the vampires. Those crazy kids can never seem to get along. Two of the film's werewolves, Julia Jones (who plays Leah) and Booboo Stewart (who plays Leah's younger brother Seth) break away from the pack to tell us about Breaking Dawn.

First off, Booboo... who named you?

Booboo Stewart: My parents. They gave me that nickname when I was a baby. My real name is Nils Allen Stewart Jr.

What are the advantages of being a wolf?

Julia Jones: For a female, it's not the best situation. I think it is fun to be around guys all the time, and it is a very familial situation, and it is wonderful to be in the woods. Outside of that... there aren't very many advantages. You can't have children, and it is hard to feel feminine. The whole pack mind-reading thing is weird, too. For a guy, it is cool, but for a girl, I think the cons far outweigh the pros.

How did you get cast in this movie?

BS: I was in a Walt Disney music group and when that ended, fans were telling me about this Seth Clearwater character. So I told my agent and he managed to get me in for a callback. The auditions were already done, and I was literally the last to be seen for the callbacks. It was just a really fun audition. The casting director and I had a lot of fun in the room. People always ask if I had to act like a wolf in the room. No, I didn't. I probably would not have gotten the role if I had to act like a wolf.

JJ: I had a relationship with casting director. She actually cast me in a movie the first day I arrived in LA, called Black Cloud. She called, and I auditioned. Then I went back and auditioned for a whole room of people. Then I didn't hear anything for a month. She called and said I was on the short list, then four days later, I got it.

PACK MAN: As wolf shape-shifter Seth Clearwater in theTwilight film series, young actor Stewart has been on a wild ride for the past two years. Seth was introduced inEclipse, and his role expands in Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and Part 2 This month, Stewart has been promoting the film. "This is my first full-on press junket. It's been insane."

ANOTHER FAMILY: Stewart grew up in Hollywood as the son of stunt coordinator, Nils Allen Stewart. For his parade performance, he will sing with older sister, Maegan, and 14-year-old sister, Fivel. There also is a baby sister, Sage.

ROAD TRIP: This will be his first visit to Houston. The trip means the Stewarts' traditional Thanksgiving will not be in Los Angeles. "It's fun to change it up, I think. My whole family, I think, is going with me. So we will all be together and that's what counts."

A LOVE OF MUSIC: Stewart, who sings and plays guitar and drums, got his start in music. He toured with Walt Disney Records group T-Squad performing with the Cheetah Girls, Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus. When his film schedule allows, Stewart spends as much time as possible in the music studio.

DETAIL: He was born Nils Allen Stewart Jr., but his parents called him Booboo. "It's just a name I had when I was a baby and it sort of stuck with me, you know."

EXPECT MORE: Stewart plays a teenager with Asperger syndrome in the independent filmWhite Frog, set for 2012 release. And, of course, Breaking Dawn - Part 2 will conclude theTwilight Saga in fall 2012.
