Twilight actor Peter Facinelli says he's sad the film's cast are going their separate ways.

The 38-year-old, who plays Carlisle Cullen, said he loved seeing the other stars every few months to do re-shoots.

"It's bitter sweet," said Peter. "It doesn't feel like the end, even though we've finished filming, because we've got all this press to do.

"I think in January it'll feel like it's completely over. They'll be a sadness there."

He describes the press schedule promoting Breaking Dawn: Part 2 as hectic but good fun.

"It's like the Thanksgiving dinner that everybody's forced to go to and you get to see family members that you haven't seen in a while. We won't have that anymore."

Away from Twilight, Peter says he's going to star in a small horror movie and also develop films with the production company he owns.

Biting requests

"It's nice to be able to tell a story from the beginning," he tells Newsbeat.

"Not just wait around for other people's scripts - pick and choose the stories I want to tell."

However, despite missing the rest of the cast, one thing he won't be upset about is colouring his hair.

"I won't miss that at all," he jokes. "Blonds don't have more fun, for guys anyway."

Fans bumping into Peter in his post-Twilight life may be disappointed though - he's got a strict no biting policy.

"I get a lot of neck biting requests," he reveals.

"I used to do that early on, but then they popped up all over the internet and it looked weird so I don't do that anymore. [But] sometimes I'll still bite a wrist or two."

Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part 2 is in UK cinemas now.
