Riley | Xavier Samuel

Xavier Samuel
The Character

Name: Riley

Type: Vampire

Special Ability: None

About Them: Riley was among the first humans that Victoria changed into a vampire as she formed her army. Victoria convinced Riley that she loved him and convinced him to serve her faithfully. Riley's job consisted of corralling the other new vampires, telling them what their mission was, and what they were supposed to do. It was Riley who came into Bella's room to get her scent in Eclipse and spared Charlie's life because he was mature enough to resist a human's blood. It was Riley that had to face Edward in the clearing. Edward tried to convince him to give up the fight by telling him that Victoria really only still loved her dead mate James, but Victoria’s grip on Riley's was too strong. Riley then tried to attack Edward, but Seth Clearwater got to Riley before he could and together Seth and Edward killed Riley.
Their Early History: Riley was a young man in 2006 when he was turned by Victoria to assist her in destroying the Cullen family. Nothing specific is known about Riley before his turning and the actual event. However, readers know that Riley was a handsome young man about Bella's age who believed Victoria really loved him.

  8. Hyatus should have a song on a Twilight Sound track!! Why are Hyatus not being made known, I'm a MASSIVE Twilight fan and Hyatus are the type of band I LOVE!! I can see thay have an EP and music on Youtube, but as a fan I want to know how to get my hands all over them! I've started following Hyatus on the Net and found out they just won an Australian State Final for a competition called Emergenza (whatever that means!!!) But they competed against 100 bands to win! SO OBVIOUSLY Twilight fans should check them out and push to find out more. For those who don't know, Xavier Samual who is in the third Twilight movie, was once the lead singer of this band. By the time the next sequel comes out, HYATUS SHOULD BE IN THE PUBLIC EYE!!!!!

    Hes the perfect person for this role and his interpretation of riley was absolutely magnificent! its a pity they had to kill off his character as we are now huge fans of his! ♥♥♥ our favourite part of the movie 'eclipse' has to be the scene at the end. we felt such pity for you as you found out victoria never REALLY loved you! your acting skills are flawless!

  29. He grew up in Adelaide and graduated from Flinders University Drama Centre in 2005. I'm not surprised that he follows Australian Rules Football and supports the Adelaide Crows in the AFL.
