With filming on "Eclipse" wrapping in just a few weeks, we were sure all the casting news for the third "Twilight" installment was far behind us. But look what we have here: another cold one joins the lineup!
According to BD Horror News, "Kyle XY" actress Kirsten Prout will play the part of vampire Lucy. As you may recall, Lucy figures prominently into Jasper's (Jackson Rathbone) backstory, as she helped form a bloodsucker army along with the mood-manipulator's maker Maria and fellow vamp Nettie. She was later killed by Jasper and Maria after turning on them. In the novel, she is described as tall, blond and pale, meaning the casting of Kirsten couldn't be more spot on.
If you're not a "Kyle XY" fan you may also recognize Kirsten from her breakout role as Jennifer Garner's protege Abby Miller in the 2005 comic book flick "Electra" or T.V. appearances on "The Dead Zone" and "Stargate SG-1."
It looks like we may also need to add the actress to our list of Saga stars who Twitter. We think @kristenprout is her name, though her account isn't verified (and her first name seems to be misspelled) and it looks as though she hasn't posted since August. Perhaps her Twitter-happy costars will be the inspiration she needs to write a few 140-words-or-less missives about her time in Vancouver (or start a for-sure real account).
What do you think about the casting of Kirsten?
