Larry of PRONetworks, who is pretty much our go-to guy covering the indie film scene, interviewed Xavier Samuel before he suddenly became a household name. Larry writes:
“While many media outlets have focused interest on him by virtue of his sudden rise to fame as the newest member of the Twilight franchise, my perspective is slightly different.
I was fortunate to have actually met and interview Xavier Samuel and cover the premieres of two of his four previous feature films: Newcastle, at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2008, and 2:37, at the Santa Barbara Film Festival in January 2007. So I’ve been happy to be able to actually write a bit about who he is and what he’s done, in addition to reporting the news that he’s been Twilighted.”
