IT'S OFFICIAL! Mackenzie Foy Is Rob And Kristen's Beautiful Little Girl!

HollywoodLife.com told you first and now, it’s official: Mackenzie Foy has been cast to play Renesmee in Breaking Dawn and author Stephenie Meyer couldn’t be more thrilled!

The confirmed casting of Bella and Edward’s daughter which, comes just two weeks before filming begins in New Orleans, was announced by Stephenie Meyer via Twilight‘s official Facebook fan page.

“Very excited about our new Renesmee, Mackenzie Foy. She’s an amazing young actress and I’m excited to work with her,” the author wrote.

Mackenzie Foy, who looks like the perfect vampire-human hybrid of Breaking Dawn stars and real-life couple Rob Pattinson, 24, and Kristen Stewart, 20, isn’t a stranger to the camera. The nine-year-old already has a slew of commercials under her belt, has been a GAP Kids model and has appeared on the shows ‘Til Death and Flash Forward. Besides her talent in front of the camera, Mackenzie has a purple belt in Taekwondo as well as skill in tap, ballet and jazz dance.

This will be Mackenzie’s first big movie role, acting alongside other newcomers to the Twilight series Rami Malek as Benjamin, Maggie Grace as Irina, MyAnna Buring as Tanya, Mia Maestro as Carmen, Casey LaBow as Kate and Christian Camargo as Eleazar.

To show Renesmee’s rapid growth from infant to a 17-year-old, Breaking Dawn producers have enlisted Avatar‘s Jon Bruno to head up special effects to work on an aging process similar to that of Brad Pitt‘s in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Sounds like Mackenzie is going to be getting a lot of attention! Are you excited about this casting choice? Sound off below!

I don’t like this at all. Renesmee was supposed to be ten times younger in the book. I saw her as an innocent little girl, not nearly almost looking 10. She’s too big, and it’s almost awkward. In the book it stops before she’s even older? So I think their exaggeration won’t be criticized lightly from the fans. :

She will be perfect but where do you get infant to 17 years old? She only grows to the size of a six yr old in the book last time I checked.

Yeah that’s what I read too, I think they’re throwing in the whole 17 year old thing to make it clear that she does age so much and that’s why they did’t cast a younger baby, although when Bella first meets her daughter, she is a baby, so what the hell are they going to do there?

I think the little girl is beautiful and I’m happy she’s the part, is it just me, or does she actually a bit like Rob and Kris?
