Amanda Seyfried, Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons, Adrian Holmes, with director Catherine Hardwicke were in London to promote their new film Red Riding Hood, a twist on the well known fairytale, and we were invited along to a special round table with the cast and crew.

So how did you come on board this film? Did you audition or did Catherine Hardwicke already have to in mind from when you were almost cast in Twilight?
Shiloh Fernandez: I wish she had kept me in mind, but to be honest, she didn’t I think. I auditioned for her other movie Hamlet, which didn’t get made, but I had hoped that that would work out. Then I read this script, and heard she was directing it, but there was a British actor who had been telling all my friends that he’d been cast in it. So I went up to her, and was like “What the fuck? I mean, we were supposed to work together.” And she told me it wasn’t true, that he wasn’t in the movie. So I went to her house to audition, and Keisha Castle-Hughes was staying there, and I read with her. It was quite a rigorous process. I had long hair, and Catherine was really trying to make it work, because when there’s a studio involved it never really comes down to just the director, unfortunately, and if it did I think I’d get a lot more parts. So yeah, she took me to her hair stylist, and she started cutting my hair, slowly. I was like, okay, if you think it’s a good idea I’ll do it, and then I ended up like that (points to the poster out the door). I wouldn’t even dare do that in my real life.

How much time did you spend on the infamous casting bed?
SF: This time? There was no bed involved this time. We stayed in the garage the whole time. Actually, I think Warner Brothers didn’t want her to do that this time.

As a child, were there fairy tales you were afraid of?
SF: As a child, I didn’t really get read any fairy tales. After doing the first press junket where people asked me that, I had to talk to my dad. He made up these stories, called the Magic Boy stories. But the way that I was raised there wasn’t really any fear. My dad has a five year old and a three year old, and they feel so safe, and I think that’s how they’re raised. There wasn’t a lot of fear. The only fear was, like, school. I hated going to school.

So you didn’t read fairy tales, you read Playboy?
SF: Yeah.

Are you ready to be the next hot guy?
SF: I’ve been waiting a long time.

[spoiler show=”Read more”]Like the next Robert Pattinson?
SF: Do I want to be the next Robert Pattinson? No. What I want is to be able to make movies, like he can make movies. But I don’t know how all the craziness and the fame would affect someone, I think he’s handled himself really well.

How do you react to seeing yourself up on posters, and on magazine covers?
SF: There’s no connection, I don’t really understand. It’s very separated from my life. I have the same life I’ve always had, nothings changed. Its not like I get recognized. But I don’t look like that, right? (referring to the poster)

Did you audition just for Peter, or for Henry as well?
SF: What happened was, they wanted everybody to read for both parts. I wanted to do a good job, and I didn’t think I could do a good job trying to memorize both. It would be the same, you know, you read the parts in the same way. So I came into the first one, and I only auditioned for Peter. Then I got a call from Catherine saying ‘everybody loved your audition, but we want you to come back for Henry’. I had to think about it, ‘cos I didn’t really understand that.

What was it about Peter then?
SF: Well, everybody wants to be the hero, or sees themselves that way sometimes. What I loved about him is that he’s good the whole time, even though you may think he’s something strange or wrong with him. But really the whole time he’s trying to do the right guy. It’s better to want to be something, and strive to be that, than saying that’s who I am and I’ll just be myself, I guess.

After not getting Twilight, what do you think of the movie as a viewer?
SF: I thought the book was cool, and the reason that I wanted to do it was because it was a great part, Edward was a great part. I thought he really did a great job. I actually saw it with Ashley Greene (Alice in the Twilight movies). It’s a once in a lifetime phenomenon. I didn’t see the other ones, I just saw the first one. And Catherine’s a great director. She connected with the youth in a way that’s unexplainable, and I’m really impressed with that. I felt I could fit in her world.

What’s next, Shiloh?
SF: I have a movie, called Skateland, coming out in May, I don’t know when its coming out in the UK. I really proud of that movie. There are five things that I want to do, that I’m attached to, but none of them have any money, so if you have any money… But there’s a British movie called Beloved that I really hope happens soon. Sandra Goldbacher is making it, and its got Andrea Riseborough.[/spoiler]
