Mackenzie Foy Lands Renesmee Role in Breaking Dawn

Stephenie Meyer confirmed on Facebook that 9-year-old actress Mackenzie Foy (pictured) will play Renesmee Cullen in the forthcoming adaptation, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

The Hollywood Reporter has more: “Director Bill Condon is expected to use similar special effects as David Fincher in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button to show Foy aging 17 years over the span of seven years.”

Condon recently posted this racy photo from the movie set. Below, a spoiler-filled description of Renesmee from the novel.

SPOILER ALERT: In Breaking Dawn, Renesmee is said to possess Edward Cullen’s “dazzling” face, Bella Swann‘s chocolate-brown eyes, and curly brown hair. Jacob Black nicknames her “Nessie” because he felt the full name Bella chose was “a mouthful.”
