Buffy actress says she was considered for Bella role
American actress Michelle Trachtenburg has revealed she was considered for the starring role of Bella in the famous Twilight films.
She played a vampire slayer’s little sister in hit series Buffy but, Michelle has now revealed she could have landed the role of Bella in the Twilight franchise, if it had not been for clashing work schedules.
‘There was definitely interest here and there because there’s only so few pale girls in Hollywood,’ the 26-year-old mused to Us Weekly.
Physical attributes aside, the Gossip Girl star explained she is friends with the director of the very first Twilight movie, revealing: ‘I’ve known [director] Catherine Hardwicke since the movie Thirteen. I was actually supposed to star in that, but I was on Buffy at the time.’
But it was not to be. ‘I guess schedules never worked out,’ she said.
Not wanting to speculate how her life would have changed had she fronted the phenomenon Twilight franchise, Michelle added: ‘I already have Buffy. I’ve already done the vampire thing.’
Yes Michelle that’s all very well and good, but you could have starred opposite Robert Pattinson!
