It’s not often that a young guy with no acting experience gets approached in church by a middle-aged married woman about becoming a part of one of the biggest blockbuster movie franchises in history. But that’s what happened to Kiowa Gordon one day at his Arizona church a couple years back.

Stephenie Meyer, the author of the world-famous Twilight books, was that woman. Starring in this month’s Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 alongside Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Kellan Lutz, Kiowa Gordon took time out to give DA MAN some stylish looks and some insights into his life.
