Shiloh Fernandez: 'Interview' Magazine Man
Shiloh Fernandez shows off his big bite in these new black-and-white shots from Interview Magazine. (It’s from February 2011 issue but his his Red Riding Hood co-star Amanda Seyfried on is on the March 2011 cover).
When asked about his Red Riding Hood character Peter, the 25-year-old actor responded, “They were having every boy audition for both roles, for Peter and Henry. Henry’s wealthier, the son of the blacksmith, who Red Riding Hood’s parents arrange her engagement to. He’s a really good guy but just doesn’t get the girl. Peter is more of the mysterious hero. I had to think about why I was attracted to Peter and not Henry, when I’m probably more like Henry. I’m not the guy who always gets the girl. I’m not the hero. But the role that appealed to me the whole time was Peter. He’s a migrant worker who works hard and has love for this girl that’s never-ending. He tries to do the right thing throughout the whole film. Somebody who works that hard to be a good person, who’s maybe not innately that way, fascinated me.”
