Move over Robert Pattinson, there is a new British vampire hottie on the block! Twenty year old Jamie Campbell Bower, who hails from England like Pattinson, will be taking over the role of Volutri leader Caius in the Twilight sequel New Moon.
“I doubt I’ll get the same sort of adulation as Robert,” Bower told BBC News. “But it’s always nice when people recognize you for your work.”
Bower has also appeared in RocknRolla and Sweeney Todd. His character forms an Italian-based gang of vampires that, according to the book, become a threat the lead characters Bella (played by Kristen Stewart) ad Edward Cullen (played by Pattinson).
“I hadn’t read the books before,” the actor admitted. “But it’s a great thing to be a part of, and [‘Twilight’] did very well last year.”
New Moon is slated for a November 20 release.
