  • The angelic nine-year old is reportedly inches away from signing on the dotted line to play Bella and Edward’s baby daughter

    Only yesterday, it was confirmed that Lost star Maggie Grace is set to play vampire villain Irina in the final two Twilight films. Now it’s thought nine-year-old Mackenzie Foy is inches away from being signed up to play Renesmee in Breaking Dawn.

    This would be the first major role for the pint-sized star, who, up until now, has only appeared on a handful of children’s television shows.

    But it’s thought the angelic youngster has won over show bosses, with reports suggesting they are just days away from confirming her contract.

    There has been much debate over how director Bill Condon will portray Bella and Edward’s baby daughter, who, as a human/vampire hybrid, ages years in just a few months.

    Rumours doing the rounds suggest the team will employ special new movie technology – similar to that used in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – to digitally transfer Mackenzie’s features onto the face of a younger child.

    But it’s thought producers could also seek out a much younger child, too.

    We can’t wait to see the results!
