Edi Mue Gathegi - Slated to Shine in ‘Twilight’

Edi Gathegi - Twilight

A graduate of New York University’s acting program, Edi Gathegi is making a name for himself in movie circles. He has been featured in ‘House, M.D.’ and, from what I’ve seen, this brother is going to have a great career. He has a recurring role as Cole in House and has been a guest star in the TV drama, Lincoln Heights, as Boa. These are pretty heavyweight roles and he does a great job.

He has been cast in the coveted role of Laurent in Twilight which has caused a firestorm of debate as people try to figure out if he is suited for the part. Not a small role, it speaks volumes that he was selected to carry such a strong and prominent role in a movie based on a popular book.

His theatre credits are Two Trains Running at the prestigious Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. Other regional stage work include: King Hedley II, Blues for an Alabama Sky, Golden Boy, As You Like It, Twelfth Night, The Crucible, Fade, A Maiden’s Prayer (Santa Barbara Independent Award), A Raisin in the Sun, Othello, a Midsummer Night’s Dream, Cyrano, and Dutchman.
