Forget Edward or Jacob, Peter Facinelli has a fan club all his own: Team Carlisle.

But, Facinelli, 36, who plays the dashing Carlisle Cullen in the Twilight series, is concerned about his professional duty ruining the personal enjoyment of the vampire flick for his daughters.

"I hope it doesn't take them out of the movie that their dad is in it. I wouldn't want to ruin it every time I pop on the screen, like, 'There's dad!' " Facinelli said of his and wife Jennie Garth's three children: Luca, 12, Lola, 7, and Fiona, 3, who have watched Twilight more times than he can count.

"The DVD's got burn marks on it!" Facinelli told PEOPLE on Friday at the New Moon home-video release party in Manhattan, also noting that a replacement is in order. "I'm happy to bring New Moon home to them tonight."

The biggest "Twi-hard" in the family? Lola. "My 7-year-old would go to school with a Carlisle T-shirt," said Facinelli. "The 12-year-old underplays it a lot. But if the 7-year-old had a Carlisle lunchbox, she'd take it to school."
