Twilight Gets New Vampire Girl

Ron Howard's daughter will take over Twilight while Rachelle Lefevre is in Canada

When the cameras roll on the third movie in the popular, totally dreamy Twilight series, there will be a different actress playing Victoria, the evil vampire girl who comes between the two main lovers. Rachelle Lefevre played the part in Twilight and the sequel New Moon (which has been filmed but not yet released), but for the third film, Eclipse, she will be replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard, daughter of director Ron Howard. Lefevre apparently pulled out of the franchise due to scheduling conflicts: at the same time as Eclipse is shooting, she will be in Quebec appearing with Dustin Hoffman in the movie version of Mordecai Richler’s Barney’s Version. Besides, she probably got tired of being hissed at by fans who think she’s really an evil vampire trying to break up the cutest romance ever. Now it’s Howard’s turn to be hated by tween girls all over the world.
