Peter Facinelli was in the Virgina area at a mall appearance for Alex’s Lemonade Stand. The Fredericksburg.com caught up with Peter:
“Peter Facinelli had never heard of the “Twilight” books when his agent asked him to audition for a vampire movie.
“I said no. I was thinking it was some B or C slasher, horror kind of picture,” said Facinelli, whose agent quickly sent him a copy of Stephenie Meyer’s popular first novel.
“I couldn’t put it down,” said Facinelli, who read it in one night. “It was kind of a throwback to the origins of what vampire folklore was, the sensuousness and the love story that it used to be.
“It wasn’t a schlocky horror movie.”
