Ah, the prank call. Truly a classic, and one which Twilight’s Laurent – AKA actor Edi Gathegi was only too happy to keep up.
“Edi Gathegi was the big jokester,” co-star Peter Facinelli recall. ”He does all these voices. One day I told him to call Jackson Rathbone and do his ‘Suzie’ voice for him and say he was from the production office. So he called and said, ‘We just want to tell you that we're dying your hair back to brown, because we don't like the blond hair.’
“Jackson was like, ‘Oh, OK.’ And he was actually on the phone with his manager, so he clicked over and was like, ‘Oh, yeah, they just called me. They're dying my hair back." And his manager goes, ‘Oh, thank God. I hated you with blond hair!’
And then Edi called them back and was like, "It's just me." And Jackson had to call his manager back to say it's not real. And the manager was totally backpedalling!”
