'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' Countdown: Why MacKenzie Foy Might Be Twilight's Next Big Star


 

Laura Byrne-Cristiano's (Twilight Lexicon's co-owner ) new column up on  Movies.com ..this time  she talks about MacKenzie Foy , How she Stole the Fandom’s heart & Why  MacKenzie Might Be Twilight's Next Big Star....

 

One of the things about Foy is the fact that she does uncannily resemble both Robert Pattinsonand Kristen Stewart. In a franchise that is very concerned with character appearance, this was one hurdle met. In an interview last year, director Bill Condon spoke about the resemblances and being overjoyed that Foy both looked the part and had the acting chops as well. “Mackenzie Foy was like; wow that’s it [with her audition]. She looks like their daughter and there’s just a quality she had, you know. I mean and it was such a relief because Renesmee was so tough to picture and imagine, you know? So I have to say she was just like, I think we’ve got it right there, and then I showed her to everybody else and everybody agreed.” Fans also echoed Condon’s sentiment. Every time Foy spoke there were audible, adoring sighs from the crowd..................

 

Vale Gonzalez, who operates the website Twilight Poison, addressed MacKenzie’s appeal to fans, saying, “I found her smart and very professional for her age, but you can tell she's still a kid as she's still enjoying her childhood, as she should be. She knows how to talk to the press and what to do, she knows the technical aspects of her performance and the CGI terms, but you don't find her annoying in that weird 'Hollywood kid' kind of way, when you can tell they're so rehearsed or over prepared, or too mature for their age, and I loved that. You can tell she still plays with her friends and has a normal life.” Gonzalez, as well as several other Twilightwebsite operators, had a chance to interview Foy after the panel. For a group that routinely encounters Twilight Saga actors, they were clearly gushing. They all came away obviously smitten.........................

 

Aside from the age factor, Foy has a very tricky role to play in terms of the concept of imprinting that can easily turn people off—fans included. Amy Taylor of the His Golden Eyes website talked about both the age and imprinted debate. “I think the biggest challenges for selling Renesmee to the fans is that in the images we have seen she is much older than anyone imagined her to be by the end of the book," she said.  "When it comes to imprinting, you either buy into the idea of it or you don't. If you accept it as described in the book, then Jacob is just a 'big brother' to Ness and it is a sweet relationship. If you are squirmish over the idea that there will be a romantic relationship there or that Jacob's thoughts or actions are inappropriate, then it is uncomfortable whether she's a toddler or a 10 year old, so why not keep her as a toddler and stay true to the novel?”..................
