Mackenzie Foy Cast As Renesmee In “Twilight: Breaking Dawn”

Have Bella and Edward found their daughter?

Cute-as-a-button child star newcomer Mackenzie Foy is reportedly one hop, skip, and jump away from slapping her signature on a contract to play the pivotal role of Renesmee, Bella and Edward’s vampire/human child, in Breaking Dawn — the two-part conclusion to The Twilight Saga, Hollywood snoops have revealed to Entertainment Weekly.

The 9-year-old actress has previously appeared in one episode each of television’s ‘Til Death and FlashForward.

If Mackenzie lands the role, director Bill Condon might use digital effects like those seen in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button to age the actress in a series of sequences that show Renesmee growing up over the course of seven years.

Just last week, former Lost star Maggie Grace signed up to play Irina in the last installment of the vampire franchise. She’ll play a Denali vampire, who mistakenly outs Renesmee as an immortal child.
