Twilight fans are all agasp as the former Lady in the Water, Bryce Dallas Howard, star of the Village, replaces Rachel Lefevre. It’s hard to know what scheduling conflicts Lefevre might have had to conflict with an all-star Hollywood saga like this one, but time will tell. This fan says although Lefevre looked beautiful in Twilight she was less than convincing as a vamp who might terrify the powerful Cullen clan by her own resources.
Access Hollywood reports that Ron Howard’s daughter Bryce from ( “Terminator Salvation” star will replace Rachelle Lefevre in the role of Victoria, according to Summit Entertainment, which produces the vampire film series based on the books by Stephenie Meyer. But even with this casting, the next film in the Twilight saga, New Moon, will have Lefevre as Victoria.
Summit said Rachelle would not be continuing on as Victoria, an evil vampire out for revenge over the death of her lover, due to scheduling conflicts. The story arc within the books continues as Edward’s romantic quest for Bella’s heart is “Eclipsed” by the revenge of Victoria’s own star crossed love, whom Edward killed protecting Bella.
