There was quite a bit of speculation that Mackenzie Foy would be cast as Bella and Edward’s daughter, Renesmee, in Breaking Dawn, and now Stephanie Meyer has announced that the news is official.
On the Twilight Facebook fan page, Meyer wrote, “Very excited about our new Renesmee, Mackenzie Foy.” She also added, “She’s an amazing young actress and I’m excited to work with her.”
Mackenzie Foy is a gorgeous child, and she does actually resemble both Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, so she will be believable as Bella and Edward’s half human, half vampire daughter.
In the film, Renesmee’s character will age a full 17 years. The director of Breaking Dawn may wind up using digital effects that are similar to the ones used for Brad Pitt’s role in The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.
Breaking Dawn is due to start filming in November. The actual movie will be released in two installments.
Sounds like 9-year old Mackenzie Foy will be one busy little girl!
