Celebuzz has a fantastic new interview with Peter Facinelli on all of his current projects. Check it out below:
What was your motivation for starting your own production company, Facinelli Films, and creating your own films?
You know I had a couple of films that I had written and I thought it was time to get them off the ground. I wrote a television movie for the Hallmark Channel that aired last month and that my wife [Jennie Garth] starred in called Accidentally in Love and it did really well in the ratings so I was really happy about that. Loosies was the second movie that I had written and we shot it last August and are now in the middle of post-production.
To be able to create something and give other people a job and have the whole crew working on something that was just an idea in your head, that was very exciting for me.
You mentioned that you are in the middle of shooting Breaking Dawn, is it a bittersweet feeling to know that the Twilight Saga is coming to a close?
Yeah. I mean, we’re so busy working that I don’t think that we’ve wrapped our heads around the fact that it’s ending soon. We still have another month to go so right now we’re just knee-deep in the work of it. I haven’t really given much thought to it being over. Even when it’s over, the films will be coming out over the next two years so I’ll still see everybody.
Did it ever cross your mind that the Twilight Saga and Nurse Jackie would become so successful when you saw read the first script?
No, I never have any control over whether it’s successful or not. When you’re an actor you come in and you do your part and then you hope that everyone puts it together and people like it. You have very limited control. With Twilight and Nurse Jackie I enjoyed the characters and I was excited to be able to play the characters, but I had no idea if they were going to be successful or not and I’m very pleased that they were.
I think that’s why in producing and writing as well that gives me a little bit more control over the project so I can see it all the way through form beginning to the end.
