'Breaking Dawn's' Renesmee: Mackenzie Foy?

'Breaking Dawn's' Renesmee: Mackenzie Foy?-photo

The search for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's Breaking Dawn spawn appears to be over. According to Entertainment Weekly, Mackenzie Foy, a doll-faced 9-year-old newcomer, is "this close" to signing on as Renesmee Cullen, the half-vampire half-human hybrid born out of Edward and Bella's love!

Despite rumors that a young lady by the name of Kayla D. was a top contender for the role, Mackenzie has now emerged as The Chosen One. Though she is new to Hollywood, Mackenzie Christine Foy has two TV credits to her name, appearing in one episode each of Fox's 'Til Death and ABC's FlashForward.

Twi-hards are already flipping for the adorable Mackenzie, even making tribute videos to the gorgeous budding star on YouTube. Check one out below:

Just yesterday, former Lost star Maggie Grace was announced as Bella-hating vampire Irina. Twilight nation, speak now: Do you think Mackenzie will make a good Renesmee? Does she look like a superhuman genetic combination of R-Patz and K-Stew? Give us your opinion in the comments.

    i like kayla d better :) shes really perfect! :) Kayla's beautiful too but notice how Mackenzie pops off the page in her pictures. The photos I've seen where Mackenzie is with other children, she just stands out. In the photo of Kayla and her brother, its her brother who stands out . . . lets face, in the book, Renesmee is supposed to be extremely beaufiful.

    She's beautiful . . . with the CGI effects and tons of photos that she has taken as a child model they will have the ability to recreate her look as a younger child. She'll be perfect!

    She is charming. But don't you think that she is too old? She doesn't look like 3-year old child.

    She's too old for the part. How will she play a 2-3-4 year old girl? Kids change A LOT in 2 years, and they want a 5 year older girl to play Reneesme? About the special effects, why should they have to use them? Why waste so much money in making a little girl look younger (and that if they use good special effects, cause if they use they the same that in Twilight, we're screwed, they were awful), when they can hire a girl that age? Also, Reneesme barely speaks. She would have to be on RPattzs or KStew's arms, and that's all. So it's a terribly bad choice. Veeeery bad. they will use the same special effects as benjamin button

    Awh, she's adorable! And she does more or less resemble the Renesmee I had in my head when I read the book. Hope she gets the part!

    Its called technology. Tell me how they would find a 4 year old with impeccable speech like Renesmee. Everyone knows it is almost impossible for there to be a real live child that can do what Renesmee can do. I think she's perfect. i know people who can really talk in 4

    portraying the roLe of renesmee makes that actress famous.. shes very pretty.. she really fits the roLe being the daughter of edward and bella.. shes as beautiful as her parents.. when they began filming they wilL use special effects for her to look younger..

    shes very pretty. its between her and 6 yr old Kayla. but since Kayla is younger thats probably the best choice. people are really beasting when it comes to casting Renesema, even professionals (actors, producers) are having their daughters audition. whoever gets the part, this is going to be the biggest break theyre ever gonna get

    Well they better hurry up and make a decision fast because young children change so quickly sometimes that they may hire one that looks perfect and in a couple months they don't.
