Edi Mue Gathegi is a Kenyan American film, stage and television actor. Born in Nairobi, Kenya Gathegi grew up in Albany, California. As an undeclared undergraduate at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Edi was more interested in playing basketball and was good at it, until he injured his knee; this plunged him into depression, so he took up an acting class as an “easy course”. This is how he discovered his love for acting.
Afterwards, studied at New York University’s Graduate Acting Program at the Tisch School of the Arts, graduating in 2005. Gathegi’s career began in theater but with time he was able to feature in movies and Tv shows.
