Explaining all the Breaking Dawn Renesmees

Breaking Dawn's Renesmee will be played by 10-year-old actress Mackenzie Foy. She is Renesmee.  However, she will also be played by three other young actresses -- Eliza Faria will play Renesmee at age 5, Rachel St. Gelais will play Renesmee at age 6, and Sierra Pitkin will play the oldest Renesmee -- but not the way you might think. After all, it wouldn't be much fun to watch a character whose face is completely different every time she ages in a flash.

So special effects artists that also worked on Avatar, behind the movie are going to superimpose Mackenzie Foy's face on the three other actresses' bodies in the scenes where she is at varying ages/sizes. The digital effects used will be similar to those used on Brad Pitt in the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

This also means that there are more baby size Renesmees that have been cast, that we haven't heard of yet, to close the gap from birth to age 5.  Or are we going from the birth to age 5 in a flash in Breaking Dawn?  That is a little food for thought.

   Age 5 Renesmee-Eliza Faria               Age 6 Renesmee-Rachel St. Gelais      Older Renesmee-Sierra Pitkin
















But we won't see these adorable little faces, cause they will have McKenzie Foy's cute face transposed on theirs.

its not too creepy to have different bodies and one face, they did it with the Social Network with the twins and most people had no idea. And with all the money and talent i'm positive they will make it look good

I think this is going to be a huge challenge and honestly I'm a little nervous. The part is just so... "major" that it has to be perfect to not look so strange. I thought the transformation in Curious Case of Ben. Button was creepy... so I think that is where my fear is coming from. But I am going to have faith in these ppl I've been impressed with their CGI/digital work thus far!

Why couldn't they just use Mackenzie's body for the older Nessie?
Comment by debbie dixon on February 4, 2011 at 9:55pm
My concern is not Nessie so much but Kristen's performance after she is turned.Breaking Dawn is more of a challenge because not only does she play a vamp, she's a wife and mother. I know cast members say she was born to be a vamp. I want to see her go after Jake when she finds out about the imprinting.I want to believe the bond between her and Nessie. I'm not saying anything about her acting but things need to be stepped up a notch. Same goes for Rob.I trust Bill and I hope they gave him greatness in return.
