Peter Facinelli Didn't Originally Want to Do 'Twilight'!

Peter Facinelli is on the cover of the latest issue of Mr. Warburton Magazine, out now.

Here’s what the Twilight star had to say…

On his career: ”I feel very fortunate to have been able to make a living over the last twenty five years doing what I am most passionate about…telling stories. As an actor I tell a story using my voice and body – through a character. As a writer, I can create the story, and as a director, with the collaboration of many, I can bring that story life.”

On not originally wanting to do Twilight: “When my agents first approached me, they asked me if I wanted to do a vampire film. I said no…the way they pitched it — it sounded like a bad horror film, but after I read the book, I was desperate to be a part of it. I thought it was so well done. It was this beautiful love story with the vampire world as a mystical backdrop.”

On the next chapter of his career: “I’m open. I feel like I have just scratched the surface on what I want to achieve in my work and I’m open and excited for what’s next…I don’t have 5, 10, or 20 year goals. I try to live in the moment. And that moment takes me to the next.”
