And we have our Maria!!! The lady that bit Jasper and turned him into a vampire has been cast for "Eclipse"

"Eclipse" has found its Maria, and she's full of grace.

Producers on Summit's third "Twilight" pic have cast Catalina Sandino Moreno, best-known for playing the title character in the indie drama "Maria Full of Grace," to play the vampire character of Maria.

The CAA-repped actress will take on the role of a woman who tries to create a newborn army of vampires, recruiting the Confederate soldier Jasper to her cause. In Stephenie Meyer's book, the character is described as a petite brunette with a soft voice.

The Colombian-born Sandino Moreno most notably starred in "Grace," in which she played a pregnant teacher who becomes a drug mule, as well as Steven Soderbergh's epic "Che" and the upcoming indie drama "Frail," in which she plays the title character, who's described as a naive Midwestern girl.

Official Character description:

Full Name: Maria

Status: Vampire

Date of Birth:

Originally From: Mexico (EC13)

Hair Color: Between brown and black (EC13)

Eye Color: Burgundy


Physical Description: "the little black-haired girl, whose features were clearly Mexican, was porcelain in the moonlight… [she] seemed young… still young enough to be called [a] girl.


Family Members: Nettie (deceased), Lucy (deceased)

Nick Names:


Personal History: Maria found Jasper in Texas after he’d helped evacuate a city. She saw something special in him–she called him "compelling"–and changed him instead of letting the others kill him. She trained him to kill other vampires and eventually put him in charge of her army.

Jasper helped her win many battles, including the one against the traitorous Nettie and Lucy, and she rewarded him well. After a few decades, though, Jasper became depressed and Maria contemplated killing him. It was at this point that Jasper disappeared with Peter (EC13).

I just can picture her going to canada to be the queen, to be treat like royalty, o and please do not ask her tospeak spanish!!!!!!! she will kill you.
I am a little disappint of the selection but thank god she is just going to be in one of the movies and for a short time
