Welcome to 2 new The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn cast members! Renesmee and Irina have both been cast.
Now EW.com has learned that little 9-year old Mackenzie Foy is inches away from signing on to play Renesmee, Edward and Bella’s vampire/human love child that’s a central role in the final installment of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.It’s not yet clear how the diminutive actress, who’s appeared in one episode each of television shows FlashForward and ‘Til Death, will portray the character who ages a full 17 years in only seven. Sources have suggested that director Bill Condon will employ similar digital effects to those used by David Fincher in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, where Foy’s face would be digitally transferred onto the face of a younger child. It’s also probable that the studio will hire a younger child in some capacity, too.
In addition, Maggie Grace is set to play Irina from theDenali coven.
The actress best known for playing the daughter in distress in last year’s Taken and Shannon on Lost, will play Irina in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, the final two installments of the Twilight franchise which are scheduled to begin filming in November in Baton Rouge.
