Twilight Saga Vampire Gossip
Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays Caius, and Edi Gathegi, who portrays Laurent, in The Twilight Saga: New Moon (dropping in a few days on DVD) have been out on the prowl. We caught up with the pair. In the flesh.
Girl World Daily: Give us some dish on your New Moon co-stars Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson.
Edi: They’re wild and crazy kids. Honestly, I don’t know anything about the rumors we get asked about all the time just because I don’t pry.
GWD: So tell us something we’d be surprised to hear about each of them.
Edi: Kristen is just wonderfully sophisticated at such a young age. I was entirely impressed by her maturity. And Rob is funny. Do you guys know that?
Jamie: He’s also made entirely of glass. He’s a very fragile human.
GWD: And totally transparent?
Jamie: Yeah, exactly, completely. No, he’s lovely. He’s really sweet, and it must be tough for them with the whole fan thing that goes on that surrounds their lives. It must be difficult.
Edi: There’s a collective consciousness when you put a lot of 14-year-olds in a room. They just get wild. It’s like a little frenzy!
GWD: Were you ever into vampires?
Edi: No, not at all. Actually, I was opposed to them. I think the vampire world goes in and out of fashion. It’s always been there, but right now it’s back in fashion.
GWD: Do you believe in the supernatural?
Edi: Not readily, but there’ve been times where I felt like I’ve seen a ghost since I can’t quite explain what that actually was. But I don’t think about it all the time -- it’s a dark road to go down.
Jamie: I don’t know if I believe in ghosts so much as that sometimes one can feel a presence. People say, “I’m scared of the dark,” but I don’t think it’s the dark they’re scared of -- it’s what could be hiding in the dark.
