I loved Edi portrayal of Laurent! And that interview when he improvs the line about baseball:
Peter/Carlise: So do you play baseball?
Edi/Laurent: Does a baby eat candy?
Peter/Carlise: What?
Edi/Laurent: I mean, does a baby taste like candy?
Peter/Carlise: <shakes head, walks away>
Way to represent Edi!

Like a lot of you, I didn't picture him being black, because his skin is described as being olive-toned.
I imagined him with short black hair, olive skin, and of course, red eyes.

I don't think it really matters that he doesn't look like I pictured him, because he has the accent, and he's good at portraying Laurent, so that's all the matters really.

He'll be getting a bigger role in New Moon,in the meadow, so there's that to look forward too :D

Quotes like this are why I love Edi... because he keeps it real! :)

iF: Were you taken aback with the huge fan following of the book series?

GATHEGI: I didn’t think anyone wanted to jinx it, but I think on a gut level, people knew what we were involved with after Comic-Con with the 6500 fans. That was an indicator. 350 websites. That’s an indicator. Seventeen million copies of the entire series. If everyone who bought the book and saw the movie, it would be a hit. And not to mention the people who hadn’t read the book, and were curious because of the hype. It was going to be successful, but people were trying to be modest and humble about it.

I am in no way racist at all but I did not picture Laurent to be black. He is described as "olive-toned". On the other hand, Edi is an AMAZING actor and did very well in Twilight. I can't wait to see what great things Edi will bring to the screen for New Moon!

Aww, wasn't the newsblog great today. Let's give Edi some !LOVE!
I will actually be sad when the wolves rip him/Laurent to pieces . . . .
He seems to have been a great "mentor" to Taylor. Workout buddies. Eating dinner at the Lautner home.
Edi, would you be my workout buddy? Please!

Like everyone else, I did NOT picture Laurent as black. I was taken by surprise when Edi got the part. But seeing the clips before the movie made me realize that wow... He was GREAT. It FIT!

D: I'm going to feel so bad when he has to go. It's not fair. He deserves to stay on for the rest of the franchise. Lol. WHAT WILL E AND BD BE LIKE WITHOUT RACHELLE/EDI/TAYLOR!? :cry:

^Well, I don't think we'll have to worry about Taylor not being there... YAY! :) Edi will be missed though... but Rachelle will be in full effect in Eclipse, and we'll probably get a glimpse of her during New Moon (fire hair on the water!)
