Happy Birthday to 'Eclipse' Star Xavier Samuel
The Australian actor turns 26 and has a lot to look forward to this year. In the upcoming film Eclipse, he plays the role of Riley, a college student turned newborn vampire recruited by Victoria as part of her scheme to kill Bella Swan.
"He gets used," the vampire star tells The Hot30, an Aussie radio station, about his role. "He gets manipulated, the poor guy."
Xavier also admits that he wasn't an instant Twi-hard. In fact, he didn't even see Twilight until after he was already auditioning for Riley. "I watched the film on the plane over," he spills to the radio station.
But after he finally saw part one of The Twilight Saga, he says, "It's a cool film. I really like it. I'm looking forward to being involved in it."
Can't wait to see Xavier go toe to toe with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner on the big screen this June? Then leave your birthday messages for him below.
