The actor, who appeared in New Jersey this weekend for an official Summit/Creation Entertainment “Twilight” convention, is nonetheless happy about his work in the first two movies and thankful for the time he’s had. “Honestly, perspective,” he said. “I’m happy I’m in ’Twilight.’ I’m happy I made it to ’New Moon.’ Things could be worse.”
Gathegi also spent much of his time on stage sharing stories from the “Twilight” and “New Moon” sets. He was particularly vocal about his lack of shoes in the first movie, a costume decision that changed under the new director. “God bless Chris Weitz,” he said. “In “Twilight’ we didn’t have shoes, because in the book they don’t have shoes — you know, nomadic vampires don’t have shoes. And I was cold, I was froze to death! But Chris was like, ’Well, wear shoes.'”
