Xavier Samuel talks ‘Eclipse’ in GQ June 2010
Aussie actor and Eclipse newcomer Xavier Samuel dons a series of trendy suits in the new issue of GQ magazine and talks his experience starring in one of the hottest movie franchises of our time, Twilight Saga.
In Eclipse Xavier plays Riley, a newborn vampire who helps villain Victoria assemble the new army of vampires to attack the Cullens and kill Bella.
Must say I’ve never heard of Xavier before Eclipse. This movie is his breakthrough project that has already opened a lot of doors to his talent. Now as the Eclipse filming is over Samuel is shooting his new movie in Berlin, Germany, playing the Earl of Southampton in Roland Emmerich’s film about William Shakespeare.
In his interview for GQ June 2010 Xavier opens up about his Twilight experience, new bonds with Eclipse family and his life in Hollywood.
Check out some of the highlights below. To read the full interview visit GQ.
Xavier on his Eclipse audition:
I did the audition from Sydney. I put the audition down on tape and sent it over. To hear back was a surprise. I flew to Vancouver on a maybe. It was me and four other guys. And I was shooting before I knew it.
On his first days in Twilight family:
It is a bit like the first day of school.
On making friends with Bryce Dallas Howard who plays Victoria:
We bonded quite early. We just kind of hit it off from the very beginning, rehearsed a lot of stuff, and talked about this almost Lady Macbeth kind of relationship.
On his character Riley:
I was flipping through the book, thinking: Where’s Riley? He’s whittled down to one line. But in the film, we venture into the world of Riley and watch him assembling this newborn army. It’s more action-packed. And it gives me something more to do, thankfully.
On shooting Eclipse:
There was no neck biting. I threw a vampire off of a burning car. I also threw a massive log with one hand. The log was attached to a hydraulic system. It made me look really strong.
On being one of the few Aussie actors in Hollywood:
We have cult meetings at midnight, somewhere near the Hollywood sign.
