Brace yourself, Twilight fans. There’s a new vampire in town. He’s Australian hottie Xavier Samuel, who will play Riley, a newly-turned vampire who has been recruited into the mission of killing Bella. He’ll make his debut in Eclipse, the third installment of the Twilight series.

Xavier is a complete unknown in the U.S. but a star-in-the-making Down Under where he appeared in the films Newcastle and Further We Search.
The main story line of Eclipse has Bella (Kristen Stewart) forced to chose between werewolf Taylor Lautner and vampire Robert Pattinson.
They go into production in Vancouver in August, just days after Kristen and RPattz complete their in-between films – The Runaways for Kristen and Remember Me for Pattinson. Eclipse comes out June 30, 2010.
