Renesmee and Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Featured on This Week's Cover of EW
06.13.12 by Mandy
The fifth and final installment of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn - Part 2, hits theaters this fall, and there are sure to be different dynamics at play with the arrival of a new and key character. Renesmee Cullen (Mackenzie Foy) manages to break the Twilight love triangle, infuriate the Volturi, and change vampire-human dynamics forever just by being born. She certainly deserves a spot alongside Bella (Kristen Stewart), Edward (Robert Pattinson), and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) on the cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly.
The arrival of the newest member of the Cullen clan not only changed the dynamics between the characters, but according to EW's interview with Pattinson, it changed the dynamics among the cast as well. Since vampires stay the same age forever, the cast are all fairly close in age and they're "really not polite to each other anymore," says Pattinson. "You'd have to tone it down when Mackenzie was around." They apparently weren't always successful at remembering a kid was close by, though. "She had a little swear jar, and I think she made 850 bucks or something." Smart girl.
According to director Bill Condon, Stewart and Pattinson had no trouble getting into their new parental roles.
They were amazing with her. It really brought something paternal out in Rob, and Kristen was especially protective. I'd have to interrupt them when they were in deep conversation to get going with a scene.
From what Stewart said, it sounds like it was easy for her to bond with Foy. "I loved chatting with Mackenzie. I'm always curious about what's going on in the minds of kids on set. She's really close to the age I was when I started." Being child actors isn't the only thing the two have in common, though. According to KStew: "Even our hands look similar. It was kind of strange. But it's funny how it actually helps. It's like, 'Oh, hey, you look like me, kid! Come on!'"
Unfortunately we don't know what Lautner had to say about having a love interest played by a preteen, but we're sure we'll hear plenty about that in due time. At least they gave us a second, alternate cover to enjoy as well.
