RadarOnline recently interviewed bad vamp Edi Gathegi on his role, Stephenie Meyer, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner. Check it out!
Radar: How scary is your scene?
Gathegi: Let’s just put it this way. I told Stephenie Meyer that my goal would be to scare every 14 year-old girl, and she looked at me and said “Edi, you’re so sweet and you have such a little baby face, no one is going to be scared of you at all.” Then she saw the movie and the dailies said, “OK Edi, you scared me!” And I said “That means a lot coming from you,” especially since she told me I wasn’t even going to be able to BE scary!
Radar: Kristen seems so sweet, was it hard to play someone who wants to kill her?
Gathegi: I can get into character. I don’t care how sweet you are, if the character needs me to be a certain way then that’s the way I’m going to be.
