ThisisLondon Singer-songwriter Marcus Foster has been able to call on famous friends including the stars of the Twilight films in his quest to make the big time after 10 years playing in London pubs and bars.
Foster, 25, who has a debut album coming out this month, enlisted Kristen Stewart to star in his new video, launching today on YouTube. And growing up in south-west London, Robert Pattinson - Stewart's co-star in the vampire movies franchise - was Foster's best friend at Harrodian School in Barnet.
The Boat That Rocked star Tom Sturridge, whose siblings were fellow pupils, became another pal. So when Foster got a record deal and decided the first single, I Was Broken, from the album needed a boost, Sturridge devised a script and Stewart responded quickly to an email request to star.
"I called in favours. I'm really lucky," Foster said. The video was wrapped up in five days in Kentish Town last week. The single is out on September 19 with the album, Nameless Path, a week later.

StayLooseUk Marcus Foster premiered the video for his new single 'I Was Broken' yesterday afternoon on MSN Music. The video features as exclusive appearance by Twilight star Kristen Stewart and in a little over 24 hours the video has been viewed a staggering 223,000 times. Already it's become MSN's second most-viewed music video in 2011.
Scripted and mentored by Marcus' long standing friend and actor, Tom Sturridge, the video was filmed last week in London after Marcus decided to make his own accompaniment to the song. Check out Marcus Foster's Show Sched
