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 agree with Asha.
    this is so stupid! why would they replace her? it’s just not the same when in a saga, they change the actor that plays the character. that’s gay. ugh, i am so mad!!!!

    Why did they have to switch her? I really liked her as a character and an actress and she always seems so excited to do the movie.

    Dallas Howard has nether the looks, or likeability for the part. It seems Rachelle was fired. If not, then I wish her the best.

    It seems like Bryce only got the role b/c Ron Howard is her dad…nepotism at its best. I guess he’s going to direct Breaking Dawn now? I hope this isn’t true. More on this theory here: http://www.celebsession.com/2009/07/oh-my-hotdamn-twilight-series-producers.html

    I don’t like it. I was really looking foward 2 seeing her in the 3rd movie. I think she would have done a great job. Now the movie won’t be the same :(

    OK, I feel the need to explain this to a few people because I don’t think they understand the circumstances. So, do not blame Rachelle for being replaced, it’s in no way her fault. It was Summit that decided to replace her, because God forbid she take 10 off (in a 3 month period) to be in another film. And the actress they have chosen, in my opinion, doesn’t seem like she can live up to Rachelle. So to put this all in a nut shell, Rachelle, you’re awesome and Summit, you suck ****.

    Noooooo! I don’t like it. It screws up everything. :(

    Summit sucks.
    Rachelle did her best in the Twilight movie and I know she’s really excited about playing Victoria in Eclipse. Besides, she looks wild and beautiful as Victoria does.
    Red hair is not a problem at all. She can get them dyed.
    Oh no :(.

    Actually, Rachel Lefevre does have red hair, and did in the first film as well. it is called “Irish Red” But I completely agree its not the red hair described in the book! I am curious to see how Bryce Dallas Howard fairs as a evil character as most of her films has her playing some sort of “damselesque”. However she is rumored to have some wicked acting talent besides “The Village”, The Lady in the Water” and “Terminator: Salvation”.

    Rachelle is a the best victoria. I personaly think that Bryce will NOT do a good job protraing her. She has a very nice face… Meaning she look nice and mean and villian like. Rachelle on the other hand as it hands down I think she plays a GREAT Villian. But we will see how it turns out. Might be good you never know. I just don’t like the fat that they replaced her. :(
