Red Riding Hood’s Shiloh Fernandez on almost being Twilight’s Edward

Shiloh Fernandez may have missed out on playing Edward in  “Twlight,” but Amanda Seyfried said she is quite pleased to have him as her love interest in “Red Riding Hood,” opening this Friday.

“I’m kind of glad he didn’t get it, because then he wouldn’t have done this movie,” she says of her 26-year-old co-star. “I knew when he came in, I knew he was Peter, for me. I had to fight really hard for him. Catherine and I fought for him and then Leo (DiCaprio) backed us up,” Seyfried says.

Fernandez laughs when asked about losing out on the part of Edward. “I would’ve [done] far, far worse, and luckily, I had the opportunity to work with Catherine down the road and this character just suits me,” he said of his role as Peter, the wood cutter. “This was just the right thing for me.”
