Australian actor Xavier Samuel has landed the first new role in ‘Eclipse’, according to THR. He will play the role of ‘newborn vampire’ named Riley, a good-looking college student who joins the plot of Victoria to murder Bella.
‘Riley is corrupted by Victoria, for whom he has an inexplicable weakness.
The movie’s larger plot centers on a choice Bella must make between the werewolf Jacob and the vampire Edward.’
Xavier also starred in ‘Newcastle’ in which he played a Goth teenager amidst a group of surfers and the upcoming sci-fi thriller ‘Road Train.’ Eclipse is set to begin shooting next month in Vancouver and be released on June 30.
