Xavier Samuel on Set

Xavier Samuel is an Australian actor who is about to make it very big in America. How come?

Because he's landed the role of Riley in Eclipse.

Not much is known about Samuel in the United States. Down Under, he's starred in films such as 2:37 and Newcastle.

He's on record as saying: "I don’t have any facial hair, so it will be a while before I play the gruff leading man." He'll have to settle for a character that tries to kill Bella in the third installment of the Twilight Saga for now.
