London: Hollywood hunk Taylor Lautner said that he had no clue that the `Twilight` series would be such a phenomenal success when he first signed for it.

The `Twilight Saga` star, who became an overnight sensation playing werewolf Jacob Black in the vampire franchise is still stunned at the level of fame and attention he received, Contactmusic reported.

"I just met the director and had no idea what I was getting myself into," said the 18-year-old actor.

However, the teenage star insists he has no regrets about signing up for the series and is delighted with the way his career is panning out.

"It`s been great from then on", he said.

Lautner, who is expected to make a staggering USD 25 million from `Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn` to be split into two parts, credited his family for keeping his feet on the ground.

"I`m definitely thankful to have a supportive family, I wouldn`t have been able to do it without them," Lautner said.

Despite being a celebrity, Lautner who stays with his parents is expected to help out in the household chores after coming back from work.

"I help out with the lawn, garbage, dishes. When I come back, I have extra mowing to do," he joked.
