Edi Gathegi, who plays Laurent, has been on Mall Tours to promote New Moon He say fans ask for "strange requests" when he meets them. He said that the girls "ask him to bite them, to take them to the prom, even to marry them." Gathegi say he won't hug fans beacause hug one fan and you'll have to hug all fans. One fan gave Jamie Campbell Bower, who played James in Twilight, a banana in bubble wrap. The fan read his tweet about having leg spasm and the potassium in bananas is good for that. "Even though Bower says he knew it could have be dangerous he did eat it. he jokes that he 'lives life on the edge, man."
