'Twilight 'stars Interview Rundown: Taylor Lautner, Jodelle Ferland , Anna Kendrick, Edi Gathegi and Rachelle Lefevre

Rachelle Lefevre: ‘It Was Devastating’ Being Fired From ‘Twilight’ Series

Edi Gathegi Scared Stephenie Meyer

Radar: It is almost two months until the opening of New Moon!
Gathegi: Whoa, it is creeping upon us.

Radar: What was filming New Moon like?
Gathegi: There weren’t that many people on set this time. My big scene was with Bella. It wasn’t like the same crazy, everybody’s around dinner situation. It was still wonderful; it was nice to be able to sink my teeth into my character a little more. I think it’s going to be really great.

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.

Radar: What do you think about Taylor? He is pretty much the buffest man around.
Gathegi: I saw it happen gradually but it’s still pretty phenomenal. The best way I can describe it is he was 16 when he started lifting and he gained 30 pounds, so basically God said, “This is your role. This is what I’m going to give your body. I’m going to allow your body to be able to do this because this is your destiny.”

Radar: Chaske Spencer told us about going to Wolf Camp, did you go to Vampire Camp?
Gathegi: I went to Vampire Camp for Twilight but not for New Moon. I went to Wolf Camp one day and trained with the guys. Vampire Camp is better.

Radar: Have you seen New Moon and can you tell us anything about it?
Gathegi: I’ve seen the movie, but I can’t talk about it. I can’t say anything. I will get in trouble. I can say the very stock answer which is the fans are going to love it, because they are. It’s beautiful.

Radar: How about your wig, did it itch?
Gathegi: It doesn’t itch, they wrap your head so tightly and then they put the wig over it.

Radar: So Kristen’s going to be fine, because she’s wearing a wig now?
Gathegi: I heard. I wasn’t up there so I don’t know much about it, but she’ll be fine.

Radar: She needs to put on your wig!
Gathegi: I know they should put that in the outtakes. And then I need to put on her wig as a joke. As a matter of fact, I need to show up in Eclipse and hide out in the background and hide out in her full hair and makeup!

Taylor Lautner: Robert Pattinson Doesn't Need Workout Advice
'He definitely doesn't need any pointers at all," Lautner joked about the actors' shirtless appearances in 'New Moon.'

'Twilight' Actress Anna Kendrick Is Fine Without RPattz-Level Fame
'I would have gone insane at this point!' she says of tabloid-target co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

Jodelle Ferland talks about the Eclipse set, the Twilight effect on her life, and beauty secrets!

I understand that right after the news broke that you had joined the Twilight family, fans went crazy and you got some intense reactions from your friends. Has the hype died down at all for you?

Yeah. I mean at first everybody was going crazy and everyone was congratulating me. They’re still all really excited and it hasn’t…no, they haven’t calmed down that much. *laughs* I have a Twitter account, and that hasn’t calmed down at all, I’m still getting the same amount of followers. Everyday. On the first couple of days I was getting A LOT, and now its not quite as many everyday. But it’s been about the same pace. My friends have calmed down a little bit, but they are still really really really excited.

I’m sure you are too

Yeah I am. I mean, I used to be just jumping up and down everyday. Every time somebody mentioned it, I was like “yay!”. But I’ve calmed down.

It’s been almost a month…do you feel more comfortable going into the role or are you still adjusting to its attached intensity?

I’ve gotten used to the idea. At first I was completely shocked and I couldn’t believe it. But when you think about it, it really is just like any other set. It’s just that it happens to be a very, very famous movie. But it’s not really any different than anything else.

So you’re approaching it the way you would any other role?


Are you making any physical changes for your role in Eclipse?

Well, I was hoping that they were going to cut my hair, actually. *laughs* My hair is so long, and it’s nice. But it’s too long, and it drives me crazy all the time. I don’t think they are going to cut my hair, but oh well. I already do gymnastics class. I don’t have to do it for the movie, but I’m just doing it anyway.

How do you keep your skin so clear and flawless?

First of all, I wash my face in the morning and at night. That helps a lot. I moisturize it a lot with Olay Classic Moisturizing Lotion for Sensitive Skin because I have very sensitive skin and I have to be really careful with what I use. Some moisturizers are too heavy and it’s hard to find the right one. I also wash my face with Oxy Cleansing Pads which helps a lot.

What nationality are you?

I’m part Austrian and British and French.

Do you have any favorite beauty products?

I like using natural products, so my favorite shampoo is by Desert Essence Organics. It’s raspberry and it smells really good, and it makes my hair shiny, and I love it.

Who would you like to work with in the future?

I’ve always wanted to do a movie with Johnny Depp. I really like his acting, and it would be great to do a movie with him. I’ve done a movie with Renee Zellwegger before, and she is the nicest person on the planet and I would love to work with her again.

Who has been the most influential or inspiring person in your acting?

I just think that everyone who has been really supportive and helped me a lot. I don’t have one person. My friends and family.

Who is your beauty icon?

Hmm. I haven’t even thought about that. Queen Latifah. I think she’s really beautiful. She has such a nice smile.

3 beauty products you can’t live without?

*laughs* I don’t think I could live without the stuff I use on my hair. The brand is called K-pak, and it’s for shine. My hair can get pretty frizzy sometimes, so I don’t think I could live without that. If I didn’t have that my hair would be frizzy all of the time.

And number two. Lip Balm. Sometimes during the winter, my lips can get dry.

One more thing I use is a natural mineral powder. I don’t like wearing a lot of makeup. A lot of people who wear so much makeup when they are younger, get to the point where they can't go out, ever, without makeup. I try not to wear it very much so I don’t get used to the way I look like that. I think all of the natural mineral powder brands are good, but the brand I am using right now is Physicians Formula.

What has been your most interesting role been so far? Why?

Let’s see. One of the last things I did was a short film called “Everything’s Coming Up Rosie”, and I played an autistic girl, which is something I’ve never done before. It’s pretty different than everything else I’ve done.
