Earlier this week we saw photos of Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart making their grand arrival in Vancouver, BC to begin filming new scenes for the upcoming sequel film The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. Today we get to see photos of young actress Mackenzie Foy in Vancouver, BC as well … it is widely believed that she has won the part of Renesmee Cullen — the human/vampire hybrid child of Bella Swan (Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Pattinson).
Mackenzie Foy, the young actress who is playing Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart‘s on-screen daughter in Breaking Dawn, was spotted out and about in Vancouver where she is currently filming the final installment of The Twilight Saga. Mackenzie kept warm in a black down coat as she grabbed groceries with her mom. So cute!
BUT … Entertainment Weekly magazine isn’t so sure that little Mackenzie has been cast as Renesmee. They are reporting that another young actress by the name of Christie Burke might actually play the role of Renesmee:
Could Christie Burke be the lucky young lady tapped to play a grown-up version of Renesmee in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn? The Internet was abuzz today with the news that the young teen has been cast as an older version of the tiny Bella-Edward spawn, long rumored to be played by 9-year-old Mackenzie Foy. There isn’t a lot of information available on Burke, aside from some commercial credits (Wrigleys!), a guest star role on Tower Prep, and small parts in a couple of movies … When reached by EW, the studio declined to comment.
I dunno … Mackenzie is already in Vancouver … it seems pretty likely to me that she’s the little girl who got the part. Tho, it occurs to me that Mackenzie may play a younger Renesemee and Christie might play an older Renesemee (i.e. the one with make-out scenes with Taylor Lautner‘s character Jacob Black). I guess we’ll just have to wait and see which girl gets the part … or if they both do. Either way, production on Breaking Dawn is moving full steam ahead. I’m sure we’ll be seeing more Twilight stars in Vancouver soon.
As for these young ladies … do YOU think either of them would make a good Renesmee?
