According to the Hollywood Insider, news out this week says nine-year-old child actress Mackenzie Foy will be joining the cast of Twilight: Breaking Dawn, playing the part of Renesmee, Edward and Bella’s vampire/human daughter. At nine years old, Mackenzie Foy is a bit young to attach her budding career to Twilight, the world’s worst movie series featuring the world’s most boring actors. In fact, let’s hope she doesn’t get lumped in with or end up like the three main Twilight stars, none of whom can act, but are certainly stuck on themselves.
Mackenzie Foy hasn’t made much of a name for herself in Hollywood yet, which is also part of the danger of attaching herself to such a terrible movie series like Twilight. At age nine, she’s only appeared in three TV shows, one episode of FlashForward, one of Charmed and one of ‘Til Death, but apparently in all three she made a bit of a splash. Firstly, she’s absolutely beautiful – with an innocent and sweet angelic face that would melt anyone’s heart – and secondly, she’s quite the little actress.
That that talent may be despoiled by having to deliver vapid lines and look at Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson as though they’re actually saying something worthwhile is a bit of a travesty. Really. Let’s hope she learns from them by not acting like them. Now that would be nice.
In Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Mackenzie Foy will be expected to age 17 years in just seven, so some major special effects will obviously be in play too. That, or they’ll have to use a younger and older actress to play Renesmee (and what kind of name is that anyway?), to make the role believable. Either way, it’ll be a challenge for a nine-year-old one which, if she’s able to avoid acting ‘advice’ from Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, she might just be able to pull off.
Of course, since Mackenzie Foy’s name has been released to the media as one of the new Twilight: Breaking Dawn actors, the internet has been going crazy. Mackenzie Foy has been on the top search titles for both Yahoo and Google several times and her website has now had so many visitors it’s crashed. If you want to see what Mackenzie Foy looks like though, the industry page of her website is still available and, let me tell you, she’s stunning.
