Kiowa Joseph Gordon (born March 25, 1990 in Berlin, Germany) appears in New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn - Part 1 as Embry Call, replacing Krys Hyatt who appears in a short cameo in Twilight film.



Gordon was born in Berlin, but grew up in Arizona and attended Cactus Shadows High School in Cave Creek, Arizona. He is part of the Hualapai Nation, which is located in Northern Arizona, and, like Stephenie Meyer, he is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He is the seventh of eight children (Mac, Sean, Aaron, Josh, Cheyenne, Sariah, Lakota), and his mother, Camille Nighthorse Gordon, is also an actress. In addition to acting, Kiowa is also a vocalist, and used to be a member of a progressive metal band called Touché, leaving it to focus on acting and his fans.


Kiowa Gordon as Embry Call

In 2009, Gordon played shape-shifter Embry Call in New Moon, based on Stephenie Meyer's novel of the same name. Gordon stated that Meyer approached him at church as she thought he would be perfect for the wolf pack. He then attended an open casting call where he landed the role of Jacob Black's best friend. He has now finished Eclipse, reprising his role as Embry. Kiowa replaced Krys Hyatt, who played Embry in Twilight. He has declared that he will reprise his role of Embry in Breaking Dawn - Part 1. Gordon will also play Brad in "Into The Darkness".
