Nextmovie made an exclusive interview with Red Riding Hood star Shiloh Fernandez. In the interview Shiloh said that he was up for the role of Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga but he didnt get it because he and K.Stew had no chemistry ..
....( iam glad they didnt “mesh”.) !!..TEAM ROB!!
it didn't work because I wasn't right for the part," Fernandez tells NextMovie. "I read a quote recently that I supposedly said about Kristen… it was horrible. What I was really saying was it was me — I was the one who was nervous and awkward. She already had the role of Bella.
"I really wanted that part because I like the book and I think it's a fantastic role, but we really didn't mesh up. I'm sure Kristen would agree — I've never seen her besides that one day."
See? Sometimes a guy means it when he says, "It's not you, it's me."
Things worked out a bit better between Shiloh and "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke because she called him back to play Peter, the love interest of Amanda Seyfried in "Red Riding Hood." This time, Fernandez and his leading lady convey an animal attraction on-screen.
"I had written a letter to Catherine thanking her and telling her how great I thought she was," says Fernandez. "When I read the script for 'Red Riding Hood,' I thought it was the perfect match for the both of us.
