Xavier Samuel Talks Vampire Raccoon Run-In

Xavier Samuel Talks Vampire Raccoon Run-In

Twilight‘s Xavier Samuel brings out his inner vampire in these shots for Interview magazine’s newest issue, featuring cover girl Megan Fox!

Here’s what the 26-year-old Aussie actor had to share with co-star Bryce Dallas Howard:

On Eclipse being his first American film: “I’ve been doing American auditions for a while, and it always felt sort of like sending these audition tapes off into the ether. So just hearing anything back from anyone was kind of startling.”

On getting sudden attention from Twihards: “I mean, it’s kind of bizarre, isn’t it? Having that kind of attention. I’m not under the microscope in the same fashion that a lot of the other cast members are, so I think I can slide under the radar a little bit more, but getting any attention at all is completely new for me.”

On getting attacked by a raccoon in Vancouver: “Well, I haven’t turned into some sort of raccoon vampire as of yet, but I was attacked in Stanley Park by a raccoon. I didn’t know that they were nocturnal….I sat down next to this raccoon for a photo opportunity and you took two photos, one of which was me sitting happily next to the raccoon, and the other of which is me lunging back while this furry ball is lunging at me. It bit my finger….and drew blood.”

Hey has the Interview Magazine website been crashing for anyone else lately? Every time I try to go on it, it takes ages loading and then says Problem Loading Page. Any suggestions?

I think he’s stunning and completely adorable.

I love Aussies.

he is SO cute and always seems laidback and goodhumored in written interviews, ill have to check out his video interviews

Xavier and Jackson Rathbone are the only good things about Twilight.

“I was attacked in Stanley Park by a raccoon” lol!

Ewww. He’s trying too hard to be sexy.

I think he’s just so adorable, cute, and sexy all wrapped in one nice package. He also seems so down to earth and passionate about his work. I hope good things come his way.

What’s so cool about Xavier Samuel is that he’s a very good actor
AND he’s very very hot…..I’ve heard that he’s so good he actually steals the movie….can’t wait to see if it’s true!

@Sexy….:

“I’ve heard that he’s so good he actually steals the movie….can’t wait to see if it’s true!”

Yeah, me too! I couldn’t care less for Jacob, Edward and Bella, what I’m really curious about are the supporting casts’ scenes! I hope we’ll get more of those instead of that constant, annoying moping..

tbh..I dunno where/how/who/what they found this boy…but he is seriously all kinds of sexiness!!!

I hope he is going to get rabies shots. I would not be walking around without a care after getting bitten by a raccoon. Take care of it.

OMG I just saw this one TV…that was hillarious!

Edward and Bella have NO chemistry in this movie. But Xavier Samuel was gorgeous :) and Jacob.

pissing myself laughing!
Oh Xavier, I do love you. You do make me laugh.
