One has to imagine that casting "Renesmee" for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 was a daunting task, but director Bill Condon said he found an "obvious" choice in little Mackenzie Foy.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly as part of this week's special Breaking Dawn - Part 2 issue (on stands now!), Condon said "Renesmee" is "a hugely important part" but that when Mackenzie Foy came along, choosing her for the gig "was kind of obvious. It was one of those rare times when you see something — like with an apartment or house — and it feels good and you just need to take it. I felt that way, like, ‘Oh, this is good.’"
Fan reception of the first images of Foy as "Renesmee" forPart 2 (she briefly appeared in the tail end of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1) has been a mixed bag, with some commenters saying that she looks exactly like her on-screen parents Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and others saying she looks a little older than they'd previously imagined for the character.
