Bryce Dallas Howard Was Asked To Do First Twilight Film, Not Just Third One

Bryce Dallas Howard is all smiles as she arrives at Vancouver International Airport in Canada on Monday morning (August 10).

At the 2009 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke addressed BDH replacing Rachelle Lefevre as the villain Victoria in Eclipse, the third take in the vampire franchise.

She said, “Of course I cast [Rachelle], so I wish [Summit Entertainment] could have worked out something. I wasn’t involved in the negotiations, so I don’t know the details.”

Catherine continued, “I know we originally asked BDH to do the first movie but she thought it was too small a part at that time.”

Not too small anymore!

…hahahahahahahaha… that’s really going to hurt the feelings of the psycho ‘sparkly-vamp’ fans. LOL..
… i wonder how many little girls glued glitter to their faces so they could sparkle like edward “the worlds most un-dangerous vamp” cullen.

Is she kidding? Why does she think she deserves a better part? What has she done besides a small role in Spiderman?

# 4

What an obnoxious girl! Gosh, she have the cheek to accept after rejecting the first twilight saga movie. I truly, undeniably hate her!

# 5

i feel sorry for that replaced girl

# 6

wow “too small a part”…and NOW she wants in?? I already do not like her.

# 7

sucks for the girl who was replace.

# 8

Too small…..can you say too big of ego!!! BDH blah!!

Rachelle was perfect in that role! THIS ***** refused it in twilight cuz it was too small… now she knows twi-movies have become this huge success & fame machine, she wanted in…. WHAT A TWAT!

She looks so happy and really pretty in those pictures.

I miss Rachelle already.

The fact is, it is a tiny part. No actress who has done lead roles (admittedly in two awful Shyamalan films) would accept it. But now that the films are a massive franchise, it’s very different.

I don’t like actors being replaced either, but you have to remember that the studio did this not Bryce. She didn’t go to them asking for the part and asking them to ditch Rachelle. They dropped her first, then asked Bryce to take the role.

I think it’s a bit rubbish of Hardwicke to release this info when she knows BDH isn’t at fault here, rather the studio is.

people get over it. you are talking about the “twilight” franchise for godsakes, this isn’t the godfather!


redheads rock! @ 08/10/2009 at 11:07 am

Ha! Now the movies are a big hit it means she wants in! Riding on the franchise coat tails now just like riding on her famous Dad’s! I read she just sold her first script to guess who? …. Daddy dearest! I bet he pays all her bills too! and where is her kid while she is off doing all this?? Most celeb Moms you see going through airports with their kids

Bryce was right to turn it down the first time. It was a bit role with an unproven cast, an obscure director and miniature budget.

Bryce had already played the lead character in three movies and had side role in Spiderman and Terminator Salvation. Twilight and New Moon would have been a step backwards in her career.

When Summit decided on their own due to the scheduling problem with Rachelle to dump her they needed a fast replacement. Since now the role was larger and the saga shown to be successful they approached her again. That’s common in Hollywood.. she already had studio and producer approval..they just needed to convince her to take the role.

this just confirms what we knew all along: that summit always wanted rachelle out and they used a “10 day conflict” as an excuse to do it. what an evil, unscrupulous, conniving group of little b*stards.


Im glad she’s in this movie. Rachelle was boring. At least this girl can act.


she has done The Village, Manderlay..

but i think this replacement is ridiculous. i want rachelle.

she got in because of daddy

I have nothing against Rachelle, she seems like a nice person. But I hardly think her acting was anything steller in twilight. She had three lines and overacted it most it. For continuity sake, it would probably be better for Rachelle to keep the role, but BDH is much better actress.

she’s a good actress, good luck

talentless chick with famous father who didn’t want the role because it was small and now that it end up to be a huge trilogy she is up for it! she is bad wherever I saw her. sorry

Now she wants the part,,when the movies are popular?!sad!
Don’t like that!

So BDH let someone else build the role for her and now that it’s huge she wants to take over. Hmmmm…screw Bryce Dallas Howard. Not paying to watch this movie with her in it.

What actors haven’t done that? Once something blows over they want in! Don’t blame BDH, she didn’t go begging for the role, it was offered to her so she took it. Plus, Rachelle is such a sad person. Kinda reminds me of Katherine Heigl, complaining non-stop. We get it!
