Edi Gathegi, who played the vampire Laurent in Twilight and New Moon, is one of the warmest and sweetest men! He loved the story of Jizo and how Chibi, the little one, is held safely. He let me place a silver Jizo around his neck and even unbutton his henley so that our photo would look awesome.
Something happened to his eyes as he encountered Jizo. I know that Buddhism is not part of Hollywood awards gifting suites but I do know that Edi and each of the people I engaged with, took a little piece of inner peace that day.
He is appearing in three new films this year including “X-Men, First Class” which is in post-production now.
