Lautner heading to Tussauds

The commission comes as part of the 250th birthday celebrations of the venue’s founder Marie Tussaud, who set up the museum in 1835 in London’s Baker Street area.

Bosses at the venue reveal Lautner is one of the most requested stars of 2011, and he will be positioned alongside his Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson.

He will also stand by royalty – Madame Tussauds is creating a new statue of Queen Elizabeth II, as well as newlyweds, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
