Bryce Dallas Howard Joins Twilight's Eclipse

Bryce Dallas Howard Joins Twilight's Eclipse

Bryce Dallas Howard will be replacing Rachelle Lefevre as the villain Victoria in the third installment of the Twilight franchise, Eclipse.

Lefevre played the role in the first two pics, Twilight and in the upcoming New Moon. The studio says the switch is due to scheduling conflicts as Lefevre will start shooting the indie drama Barney’s Version opposite Dustin Hoffman at the same time (both films have the same August 17 start date).

WHAT DO YOU THINK of the casting change???

I think Bryce is a good replacement.

If I was Rachlle I’d be choosing the Twilight saga over ANY role.

She’s going to butcher this role, she cannot act!

I like Bryce, but I think Victoria is a very important role and the fans are going to freak out when they watch Eclipse. I prefer Rachelle.


Isnt that the standard scripted statement when it comes down to the actor wanting more $$$

Yuck, not a fan of Bryce. Plus casting changes suck.

I think that it would’ve been smarter for Rachelle to stay with the Twilight series instead of doing a movie that no one is going to watch.

Sorry but the reason why people go to see the twilight films is because of the books. Twilight (the film) was awful and I can’t see New Moon being any better because even though the film’s new director looks like he is really good at what he does, the original twilight cast is horrible and Rachelle is no exception. Bryce however would be a breath of fresh air for the installments of the twilight films because she is really talented and a good actress. So I have to say this change is great.

Bryce is so pretty

Bryce is so pretty

I love Bryce, but Rachelle is already Victoria!

oooh, i love this webpage, sooo much news!! anyway the casting choice is bollocks!! however if i had to choose, then rachelle

elvina the *****;)

I hate when they switch actors in the middle of a series. That’s ridiculous.

is not happy at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!! she should’ve stuck around for the whole series!!!!!!!!!!!! SO DISSAPOINTED

this sucks, but I guess shes gotta do what shes gotta do….wish she would have stayed to do eclipse. I only wish her luck on her next movie

WTF? That’s GAY. The third book is when she’s in it the most! Its like her biggest part of the whole Twilight Saga!!
I’m sooo PISSED OFF Right Now!


I agree with you i am so mad..


I agree with you i am so mad..

Boo! I really like Rachelle. This is a bad idea, why didn’t they sign her on for the whole series? Maybe Summit should pay attention to things like this instead of caring who in the cast is dating.

Bryce has a very famous director father…they can milk her association of her being his daughter …This was all behind the scenes firing which at least they tried to cover by saying Rachel had a conflict..
Common sense would tell anyone that this huge franchise, everyone wants to be associated with especially now that Twilight became a phenomenon would be completey insane for a lesser known actress to leave this franchise who now!

oh noo .. Rachelle IS Victoria .. that sucks. Mm it does seem like Summit is a bit shady. This is interesting. That’s too bad that she has “scheduling conflicts” though. Ugh.
