Edi Mue Gathegi is an American film, stage and television actor. He is best known for his appearances as recurring character Dr. Jeffrey Cole in the television series House, as Cheese in the 2007 film Gone Baby Gone and as Laurent in the 2008 film Twilight.
Though born in Nairobi, Kenya, Gathegi grew up in Albany, California. As an undeclared undergraduate at University of California, Santa Barbara, he was interested in playing basketball until he injured his knee; he took up an acting class as an “easy course” because he was “depressed” and discovered a love for acting. Afterwards, he attended the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University for a graduate school acting program. Gathegi’s career began in theatre, and his stage credits include Two Trains Running at the Old Globe Theatre, As You Like It, Twelfth Night, Othello, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Cyrano de Bergerac, among others.
