The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn starts filming preparations next month and it looks like two new cast members are ready to join the crew. Lost's Maggie Grace has officially signed on to play Irina, a member of the Denali coven (a.k.a. the Cullen's cousin "vegetarian" clan) who causes serious trouble for Bella and Edward.
Meanwhile, newcomer 9-year-old Mackenzie Foy is reportedly very close to finalizing the deal to play Renesmee Cullen, Bella and Edward's daughter. Mackenzie has only appeared in a few TV episodes and commercials before, but she's a trained dancer --Â and has a purple belt in Taekwondo! Since Renesmee ages 17 years in only seven, there's talk that director Bill Condon will use digital effects to superimpose Mackenzie's face on the body of a younger child or use a younger child actress for some scenes.
Get a first look at Mackenzie Foy in this YouTube video:
