It may have been closer to midnight, but it felt like twilight Friday night as Twilight fans across the country counted down the final hours to the DVD release. J-14 joined in the excitement at the New York City Borders location at Madison Square Garden, where the Twilight Moms did a special live podcast, fans dressed in character (our fave were girls who dressed in the pajamas with feathers all over them... those of you who have read Breaking Dawn know what we mean!), and even an appearance by the hand model who holds the apple on the Twilight cover.
But the highlight for the fans was the special appearance by Twilight cast member Edi Gathegi who plays the French vampire, Laurent. J-14 chatted exclusively with him and he told us that he and costar Kellan Lutz had a blast in Las Vegas at their recent joint birthday party. "It was fantastic! I had a great time," he told us. "The highlight was the New Moon cake they got us with the New Moon logo on it!"
