One day before they invaded Los Angeles’ Hollywood & Highland Centre, the cast of “New Moon” kicked off their tour with a stop at a Nordstrom packed with infatuated Twilighters. Featuring appearances by fan favorites Edi Gathegi, Christian Serratos, Alex Meraz, Chaske Spencer, Bronson Pelletier and Kiowa Gordon, the group spoke exclusively to MTV News about their future plans between now and the premiere of “New Moon” on November 20.
“We’re here today — half the wolf pack, a sexy vampire and a regular human,” laughed Gathegi, who plays the (mostly) evil Laurent in the saga. “We’re here to meet 125 fans, take pictures with them and send them home happy.”
Apparently they did their job. Eager Twilighters were ecstatic to meet their favorite members if the “Twilight” saga. The merchandise also assisted in the general elated atmosphere as well.
“There’s this white shirt, and it has a giant tree on it and a bird,” Serratos said of her favorite piece in the Nordstrom “Twilight” line. “It’s really tight; I like it.”
“If I had to design something for my character, it would probably be a line of cardigans,” Christian said of what she’d expect if Nordstrom ever made clothes inspired by mousy Angela Weber. “She’s very cardigan-y, and very laid-back … very home-y, like fall in the woods. If she’s in jeans and a cardigan, she’s good.”
Gathegi was eager to get visit as many stops as possible. “As we kick off the tour, I don’t want to say which city I’m most looking forward to because then the other cities would think I wasn’t looking forward to them, and that’s not the case,” explained the always diplomatic vampire nomad. “But I’m really excited about going to Washington D.C., because I haven’t been to D.C. since I was a kid. I’m a man now, and I want to see where Obama lives — because he’s from Kenya too.”
