Teen Vogue Photoshoot & Interview with Xavier Samuel + BTS video of the photoshoot

When Xavier Samuel arrived in Vancouver last summer, he didn't make it far past baggage claim before he started making headlines. With just a
few offbeat Australian flicks under his belt, the sandy-haired
26-year-old had been chosen to play newborn vampire Riley, the latest
heartthrob in The Twilight Saga. Almost instantaneously he was
being hailed as Robert Pattinson's doppelgänger and couldn't get coffee
without seeing flashbulbs.

"It was all very sudden, not just with the paparazzi but also with being cast in general," says Xavier, who's been acting since high school. "I
did an audition from Sydney on tape. Then I got word that it was down to
four guys—and that I was one of them." (Rumor has it he beat out
Channing Tatum and Harry Potter's Tom Felton for the part.)

But the role of Riley was a perfect fit—and Xavier had a blast hanging out on the set of Eclipse. An indie-rock aficionado who has
recently been digging The Magnetic Fields and The xx, Xavier joined in
on periodic jam sessions with fellow guitarists Robert and Jackson
Rathbone. (Xavier travels everywhere with his old Yamaha C-40.) And he
bonded with Bryce Dallas Howard—his on-screen love interest, vampire
trainer Victoria—who thought she was helping him get acclimated with
stateside pop culture when she bought him a DVD box set of Lost.
"People think that there's, like, one public phone in Australia and
that we all ride kangaroos to work," the Adelaide native jokes. "They're
surprised we do actually get American TV and things there."
