Xavier Samuel to Co-Star Opposite Hugo Weaving and Don Hany in ‘Healing’


Deadline reports Australian actor Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) has been cast in a new drama, Healing, which was scheduled to start shooting yesterday (February 18th).


Samuel, who’ll next be seen in Catherine Hardwicke’s thriller Plush, plays a young, vulnerable prisoner who gets involved in a rehabilitation program involving treating injured birds at a low-security prison farm run by Weaving’s Senior Officer Perry. Hany plays a long-term crim who has almost given up on life.
