Twilight vs. Harry Potter: Team Laurent or Team Bellatrix?

Vote for your favorite sinister sidekick in E! Online’s Twi-Potter Tournament!

Laurent: This vampire isn’t like the Cullen gang—he loves feasting on blood. Teaming up with Victoria and James,Laurent (Edi Gathegi) kills a few people in Forks before leaving because he doesn’t want to go against the Cullens. Later he returns to Victoria’s side, begins spying on Bella and almost kills her.

Bellatrix Lestrange: Helena Bonham Carter completely losses herself in this sadistic witch. Bellatrix is Voldemort’s most devoted follower and has no problem killing anyone who gets her master’s way. She was sent to Azkaban after torturing Neville Longbottom’s parents, but escapes and returns to Voldemort’s side with a vengeance.

Edi Gathegi discusses being in his last Twilight Saga film, New Moon.

MTV has an article with Edi Gathegi, who plays Laurent in the Twilight movies,where he talks about New Moon being his final Twilight film:

“The 30-year-old spent about three weeks on the “New Moon” set and was met with a few happy changes from the first film. For one, the cloudy red contact lenses used to give the vampires their signature scarlet stares were replaced with sleeker models more closely resembling regular contacts. For another, Gathegi finally got to wear shoes. “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.’ ”

When asked whether his character’s penultimate showdown was more of a fight or a chase, Gathegi remained mostly mum, but did concede that it was hard acting with something that wasn’t there. “We basically acted with a man holding a piece of cardboard shaped like a cow. So when you see the movie, look at my eyes and [decide], is he seeing a cow or is he seeing a wolf?”

Though that scene will be Gathegi’s last as vampire Laurent, he said he can’t be too upset about not returning to the saga. “Honestly, perspective. I’m happy I’m in ‘Twilight.’ I’m happy I made it to ‘New Moon.’ Things could be worse.”

He did admit one regret: never getting to sparkle in the sun.
