Mackenzie Foy to Play Renesmee in Twilight Breaking Dawn 2010-09-27 21:56:23

Big Twilight News: Breaking Dawn Finds Its Renesmee!

It's not just former Lost star Maggie Grace who's making Breaking Dawn casting news. A very central character may be lined up as well, and it's one we're all curious about: Renesmee.

EW.com is reporting that 9-year-old actress Mackenzie Foy is in negotiations for the role of Edward and Bella's half vampire/half human child (apologies for the spoiler if you haven't gotten there yet, but there's really no avoiding it now). The fairly unknown child actor has appeared in TV shows FlashForward and 'Til Death, but to say that her Breaking Dawn role will be a challenge is the understatement of the century.

No word yet on how the rapidly aging character will be handled onscreen, but I'm just glad that there is an actual human actress involved, and not a wholly CGI creation (as had once been suggested). So, now that you have a face, does this kid look like she could be the creation of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson?

I don't think her age will be a problem. They use so much makeup and stuff for the vampires in that show, it wouldn't be hard to fudge a little bit on her age and make her seem younger.

Beautiful child and actually scary-close to how I imagined Renesmee to be. Very believable as a dna cross between Pattinson and Stewart's characters.

Shes adorable. She looks nothing like Rob or Kristen other than the fact that shes white.

This girl is perfect. Absolutely gorgerous. Likewise, very happy that we'll be seeing an actual person.I've noticed that for media they tend to go for an older child to play the part of a younger kid. So I'm sure she'll be great.

I seriously doubt they will require a 9 year old to wear contacts for as long as it will take to make a movie, just like they didnt require it for Harry Potter and he was like 11 at the time. Im sure they will just film her as is.

Kirsten Stewart doesn't have brown eyes...Behold the magic of contacts. I'm sure they'll do the same for this little cutie! Hopefully they film fast so she isn't super old by the time they are done!

Oh I like her! You can't have everything as far as looks, ability to act, etc with kids.. the green eyes will be annoying for a while, but most people will get over it, they did with Harry Potter, esp since darker green eyes often appear brown from far away anyway. I like her as nessie.
