Get to know this C-list celebrity couple. Xavier Samuel and his girlfriend Shermine Shahrivar are out and about in NYC’s Soho neighborhood. You may have seen Xavier in one of those Twilight movies, and you may have never seen Shermine ever before.
Xavier Samuel, an Australian actor, had his big breakout role as Riley Biers in Eclipse, the third blockbuster installment of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. Unless you read Eclipse and saw the movie, you may not be too certain yet who the character Riley Biers is. Educate the Twilight fan in you… Riley is the vampire, created by vampire antagonist Victoria, who lead a vampire army in search of Bella’s death.
Xavier’s girlfriend, Shermine Shahrivar, is an “I never heard of her” model. Her resume runs the gamut of “beauty queen” and “aspiring actress.” Miss Deutschland in 2004 and Miss Europe in 2005. The Iranian and German model also is the featured face of several American Apparel ads throughout the past couple years.
Xavier has something in common with his beauty queen, and it’s good looks. He has been named one of Glamour magazine’s 50 sexiest men. Twilight and Xavier fans will be able to judge his sexiness once again when The Twilight Saga: Eclipse comes out on DVD December 4, 2010. It’ll be as exciting as the return of Starbucks’ Peppermint Mocha with whipped cream and red sprinkles.
