‘Twilight’ Actor Peter Facinelli Hits It Off With Hong Kong



Twilight is descending over Hong Kong.

“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1,” the latest installment of the hugely popular vampire-romance series, opens in Hong Kong on Dec. 22. The movie opened in the U.S. last month and has been playing in dozens of markets around the world, including the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand.

Actor Peter Facinelli, who stars as Dr. Carlisle Cullen, met with journalists at a news conference in Hong Kong Tuesday, and offered an attempt at a Cantonese greeting: “lei ho,” or hello. The 38-year-old New Yorker, who plays the vampire patriarch of the Cullen clan, said he was thrilled to be visiting the city for the first time and had already scoped out tourist attractions like the Peak and Victoria Harbour’s evening laser show.
He was so taken with Hong Kong that he wants to make a movie in the city, he said. “I’m going to write [a script], and I’m coming back to film it.”

“Breaking Dawn Part 1,” the fourth movie in a planned series of five, also stars Kristen Stewart as a human teenager who marries and becomes pregnant by a vampire, played by Robert Pattinson.

It has earned $633.5 million globally, through last Sunday, since its Nov. 18 release, according to Box Office Mojo. “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2,” the final film in the franchise, has completed filming and will be released in November 2012.
Mr. Facinelli said he already missed working with his co-actors, but there was one thing he’s happy he doesn’t have to go through any more.

“I’m not going to miss putting the makeup on,” he said, describing the physical transformation he goes through — including an ashen complexion, blond hair and uncomfortable contact lens — to project a handsomely ghoulish figure.
