Xavier Samuel Surprises ‘Eclipse’ Fans in NYC (PHOTOS)

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart weren’t the only ones nearly giving Twi-hards coronaries with drop-in appearances over the weekend.

Xavier Samuel, who plays vampire Riley in the hugely successful film series, dropped in at fans at New York City’s AMC Loews Lincoln Square theaters on Saturday to suprise fans who’d shown up to see the franchise’s latest installment, Eclipse.

Samuel was accompanied by his girlfriend, Shermine Shahrivar—also known as Miss Europe 2005. Apparently, being a part of one of the most successful cinematic projects in recent history has its advantages.
