Maggie Grace Cast as Irina in Breaking Dawn
New casting news for Breaking Dawn is starting to filter in. According to Deadline.com Maggie Grace has been cast as the vampire Irina from the Denali clan. These are the vegetarian vampires that the Cullens are friendly with in Alaska and the ones Edward went to visit after he met Bella.
Like her sisters she is a peaceful vampire but she is angry with the Cullens for the death of her lover Laurent. Also according to the books, she and her sisters were orphaned by the Volturi when they executed their “mother” for harboring an immortal child. When Bella and Edward welcome a little someone into their lives, Irina will conclude that another immortal child has been made, and will set off a terrifying chain of events.
You may have seen the lovely Maggie Grace in Taken with Liam Neesan and the TV series LOST.
The first of two pictures will be released by Summit Entertainment on November 18, 2011, followed by the finale on November 16, 2012.
