Twilight Friends Campaign


Actor Edi Gathegi holds a very special place in the Lexicon’s heart.  He was the first to recognize our need for detailed Q&A’s and the very first to step into the Hollywood hotseat and face the questions surrounding his casting and his fit for the character of Laurent.  In short, he is a wonderful guy who loves the Twilight fans. 

Last week I mentioned to you that his MySpace was in need of some much needed attention.  Edi, in fact, has the lowest number of "friends" of all the Twilight actors.  After having a lively conversation with him last week he mentioned that he would love to have 1000 friends on his MySpace by the end of summer.  To which I responded…"That’s it?  Just 1000?  We can do that!"  And out of that conversation was born…The Twilight Friends Campaign – The Summer of 1000 Friends (Banner by the ever talented Ambereyes)

So here is what we are asking.  Take the banner above, put it on your MySpace, put it on your blogs, put it in your signatures, put it on your own Twilight websites (though put it in your own photobucket account or you’ll wipe mine.  :D)  Link the banner to Edi’s MySpace like the one above is, and encourage everyone you know to friend our favorite villain!  And while your there be sure to subscribe to his blog.  He promises to update with his happenings more often now! 

Your ever roving reporter,

  32. eager 4 eternal damnation says:

    haha – i didnt have a myspace account – just a facebook one. but now i’ve made an account just so i can add edi! honestly tho – twilighters need to perk up a bit more. he’s still at five hundred and forty something….


  33. As of this moment 10:42 pst Edi has 994 friends! I think a few people stepped up to show some love. LoL

  34. ๐Ÿ™‚ he’s at 992 right now.

  35. simplicity says:

    Yay!!!! We made it to 1000!!!!!!

  36. I friended like 5 or 6 hours ago! ^.^

    Buttttt. He has reached exactly the count of 1000! ^.^

    We really are a rabid fanbase[andproud of it]! Hehee.

  37. haha waaaooooowww.
    we are amazing.
    pretty much.

  38. dude, the banner should have said ‘the wednesday of 1000 friends’
    that would have been more appropriately titled. ๐Ÿ˜€

  39. Edi has a thousand friends already :)) good job guys :))

  40. arianne says:

    LOL i agree it should have been the Wednesday of 1000 friends.
    hes going to have thousands of friends by the end of summer ๐Ÿ™‚
    hes awesome i can’t wait to hear of his reaction.

  41. i just checked his myspace (after i was added) and i think he has 1000 friends now!!

  42. oh whoops you already know… ha ha

  43. I am in shock. I literally woke up this morning to an email from Edi (he was just returning from a night shoot for his new film My Bloody Valentine) so he could let me know the news! I got a little teary! TWILIGHTERS ROCK!!!!

  44. *exactly* a 1000 friends! *woot* we twilighters rock!

  45. I added him. Seriously, who wouldn’t? I love his character and he sounds like a fun guy who deserves some love. ๐Ÿ˜€ Besides, I’ve always been a supporter of the supposed bad guys.

  46. Kristina_Rose says:

    Ha ha more like 1000 before summer. That’s the Lex magic right there.

  47. Haha!!! You guys make me so proud!!!!

  48. “Edi has 1001 friends.”
