Xavier Samuel talks to Moviehole about Eclipse


Xavier Samuel who plays Riley in Eclipse, a good-looking college student who joins the plot of villain Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) to murder protagonist Bella Swan(Kristen Stewart).

Question: And you play a vampire in Eclipse?

Samuel: Newborn vampire.

Question: A newborn vampire. Do you do any research on something like this?

Samuel: Sleep in coffins at night, and stuff like that?

Question: Or look at classic horror films that explored vampire culture.

Samuel: I think that I've resisted that temptation, because the vampires, in Twilight, are very different. I think there's a crucial element to portraying something like that is retaining some sort of humanity, and if you can do that, then hopefully it can work, in less of a stereotypical, clich├ęd kind of way.
