Xavier Samuel at the Toronto Film Festival

Larry from ProNetworks caught up with Xavier Samuel, whose career he has been following way before the Eclipse madness started, at the Loved Ones party. He has pictures with Xavier’s co-star Victoria Thaine and the promise of more to come.

“Greetings once again from the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival!…Needless to say, TIFF 2009 is shaping up to be another winner….I have a brief break from the action before my next screening so I wanted to post a few pictures I just shot. Tonight is the International Premiere of Sean Byrne’s The Loved Ones, one of the choices I previewed last week. The screening is part of the Midnight Madness series — this is my fourth night attending the program — and I’ve just returned from a party thrown by Midnight Madness programmer Colin Geddes to celebrate the 10-night series and the debut of The Loved Ones in less than three hours. ”

Later on Larry tweeted during the party. Here is what he had to say about Xavier:

” Xavier LOVES his fans and is humbled.”
“Xavier Samuel performance in The Loved Ones gives new meaning to the term “tortured actor”
“Xavier Samuel will #Eclipse most young actors in this awesome performance. It’s too bad they don’t have Oscars for Best at Enduring Pain.”
“Xavier Samuel pulls off a stunning agonizingly horrific performance in The Loved Ones …NOT for the faint of heart.”
“.Xavier Samuel does NOT have a Twitter. My source is Xavier Samuel.


  1. is it just me – or does Larry have the hots for Xavier, i mean, how good do you have to be at being quiet and mute in a film, Larry just loves him because hes ‘going’ to be in a twilight movie, jesus, grow up

    • See my reply below.

    • Twilight_News says:

      Larry has the “hots” for talent on the indie circuit. And by that I mean he covers on a professional level the careers of indie talent that eventually gets noticed by mainstream producers and their careers skyrocket. Two such examples of this in the Twilight world are Anna Kendrick and Xavier Samuel.

      Larry’s professionalism has personally been vouched for by one of the Twilight cast member’s mother, who works with Larry to promote her son’s career.

      As for the other meaning of the word “hots”, Larry is no more trying to get in Xavier’s pants than he is mine.

  2. he is delicious…

  3. Xavier need a twitter….

  4. omg that pic was taken at the social, i’ve been to that club!

  5. aww no! Ive added Xavier on Twitter! go u Aussie!

  6. To Dean James: I don’t blame you for not being aware of the history here. So allow me to make it clear for you.

    I’ve stated many times in a number of articles that I’ve been following his career since January 2007 when I saw him in a film at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. That was 2 1/2 years before he was cast “in a Twilight movie.” I covered a film he did at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2008. I was specifically asked to report on the film, photograph the actors, and conduct interviews and, in that capacity, I got to know ALL the cast members and filmmakers, not just Xavier.

    When you spend about a week getting to know and hanging out with cast members and filmmakers you form a bond that doesn’t go away after the festival ends.

    I have hundreds of friends whom I’ve met this way. He is one of many actors whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know over the years. The fact that he was cast “in a Twilight movie” came long after we’d become friends.

    I would hope that if you knew someone who was cast in a movie that you’d be excited for your friend, and would take the opportunity to say so online.

    He assured me himself the other day that he knows I am not using my friendship with him for any reason other than to let people know who he is and that I’m excited for him.

    Jealousy perhaps? Grow up indeed. Next time do your homework before drawing conclusions about why someone reports what they do.
