We posted about Twilight breaking Dawn Casting Call Auditions a while ago, now it´s time to learn about some Casting News from Twilight Breaking Dawn. Not only Lost alum Maggie Grace joins the cast of Twilight to play Irina, but today, as Entertainment Weekly reports, 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.
