themes of New Moon, and more:
Q: I just wanted to ask both of you guys, what was your favorite stunt to do?
Alex: For me, my favorite stunt to do was the cliff-diving scene. It’s pretty fun when you get the chance to jump off this fifty foot scaffolding just to practice the form, and it’s really exciting. I mean, it’s a good thing when an actor can actually perform your own stunts; it’s pretty rare.
Edi: I actually had a ton of fun on the second unit. The second unit director was extremely collaborative, and we actually created a shot together based on an idea that I had. And I can’t give it away, but the stunt that I do was something that I thought of and he said yes to, and it felt very wonderful to be able to have that sort of collaboration on a project of that scale.
Q: Alex, was it hard for you to come onto the New Moon set as one of the newcomers?
Edi: It was ‘cause I beat him up everyday [laughs].
Alex: There was no phase. Well, surrounded by the rest of the wolfpack, we’re all new to it, so we kind of relied on each other, you know, for support and whatnot, and we spent the most time together. So, when I saw any of the other actors, it was mostly in passing, but we did work together. It was all good, you know, we had a good time. No … I felt right at home.
The TwilightExaminer got to interview Edi, Gil & Justin at the Fantasy TwiLife show in Orlando this weekend:
Q: [To Justin] And Anna [Kendrick] had an interview recently where she said that the humans were kind of expanded in New Moon and beyond. Can you give an example of that by chance?
Justin: I’m just grateful that they’ve included us at all because at the end of the day, it’s a movie about a love story and werewolves and vampires, but yeah it’s cool to see that they want to have more of a dynamic. It can’t be too moody the whole time, so we’re there to kind of bring levity to the whole thing …
Edi: This guy’s got such a brilliant moment in the movie that I won’t give away …
Edi: … but it’s like one of my favorite parts of the whole movie though.
Q: Okay, so favorite scene in New Moon?
Edi: The meadow scene …
Justin: The meadow scene … [laughs]
Gil: The meadow scene …
Edi: Yeah! Bring Laurent back!

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!
