The latest round of talk-show musical chairs continues for the cast of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" as co-stars Nikki Reed and Mackenzie Foy stopped by "The Ellen DeGeneres" show today to chat about the film franchise's finale, due in theaters November 16.

As any Twilighter can attest, Mackenzie's on-screen alter ego, Renesmee, goes through quite the evolution in this conclusion, aging from a newborn baby to a young child in a manner of weeks (thanks, vampire blood!). And for the young starlet playing the adorable half-human, half-vampire wunderkind, it made for some surreal moments on set.

"It's kind of weird because it's not my body," Mackenzie said of the special effects used to paste her face onto different children—and props.

Mackenzie FoyBella and Edward will be so proud!

The latest role-getting "Twilight" star isn't Kristen Stewart or Robert Pattinson but their on-screen daughter Mackenzie Foy, who according to Variety has landed the lead in the indie "Wish You Well."

The 11-year-old will star alongside Ellen Burstyn and Josh Lucas in the film based on David Baldacci's best-selling 2001 novel. Set in the 1940s, the coming-of-age tale centers on Mackenzie's character, who along with her brother, relocates from the bustling Big Apple to a Virginia farm to live with their great-grandmother in the wake of a family tragedy. Sounds like a dramatic role Mackenzie will really be able to bite her teeth into (heh).

Warning: This fresh image from the set of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" may cause uncontrollable awwwing and an incurable case of the warm fuzzies. Proceed with caution.

Entertainment Weekly has a brand-new look at our favorite vampire-human hybrid, Renesmee (played by Mackenzie Foy), and her newly turned mama, Bella (played by Kristen Stewart) sharing a special moment. The two are examining the Christmas present Bella gives Renesmee: a golden locket with a family picture inside and the inscription Plus que ma propre vie, which translates from the French as "More than my own life." It's a keepsake meant to remind Renesmee of her parents after the Volturi prevail. Except, you know, spoiler alert: they don't.

Mackenzie FoyIf you've been dying to get an advance look at little Renesmee Cullen, the rapid-growing spawn of the newlywed Edward and Bella whose traumatic birth concluded the penultimate film in the series and who will finally (finally!) make her big appearance in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," then Entertainment Weekly has a little treat for you over on Facebook: a sneak-peeky family portrait of the Cullens, with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson keeping close parental watch on the mysterious daughter who's making her debut in the magazine this week! Just click the Like button, and then feast your eyes on the first media glimpse of Renesmee.

...And we do mean "glimpse." You can only see, like, one-sixteenth of the child in this photo—it's less a full-on portrait than it is some hair, an eyeball, and part of a leg. (Wait, is that her leg?)

Imagine Robert Pattinson describing you as "cool," "smart" and "sweet." Now imagine it's during a live, 30-minute interview for everyone to see and hear?!

That was exactly the case for 10-year-old actress Mackenzie Foy, who plays RPattz's offspring, Renesmee, in the eagerly anticipated "Breaking Dawn." During "MTV First: Robert Pattinson," Mackenzie's onscreen dad had some pretty lovely things to say about his young co-star.

In addition to describing her as "really cool" and "really smart," Robert said Mackenize is a "great actress" and that, "She has to do a hard part as well, 'cause she's....playing a baby in some scenes."

Let's be real: When it comes to enjoying the "Twilight" movies, suspension of disbelief is a key factor. There's the whole "vampires are sparkly" thing; the whole "accelerated hybrid pregnancy" thing; the whole "pretend like you didn't notice Kristen Stewart's horrible wig" thing...

And then there's the fact that, in "Breaking Dawn," the ridiculously fresh-faced Elizabeth Reaser is supposed to be somebody's grandmother. Crazy! So when we caught up with the actress who plays Esme Cullen at the Sundance Film Festival, we had to ask what she thinks about Mackenzie Foy, the 10-year-old actress who plays Bella-Edward offspring Renesmee Cullen.

"She's actually my vampire grandchild," Elizabeth said with a laugh. "I'm a grandma. This is... far too quick."

Okay, so this one's a no-brainer. We cannot wait for the fourth installment of the "Twilight" saga—our No. 2 most anticipated film of 2011—to hit theaters November 18.

Like "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" before it, we suspect that the splitting point between Parts 1 and 2 will be a well-guarded secret. It's likely, however, that the first movie will end around the start of Book Three: the dividing line between Bella's human and vampire life.

We can already visualize the possibilities. Bella reaches for the cup of blood, unleashes a bloodcurdling scream and the screen goes blank! Or, Edward delivers the baby, turns to Bella, murmurs, "Renesmee" (signifying that the baby is not the boy Bella dreamed of, but a girl) and the screen goes blank! Or perhaps Bella endures the burning transformation, her heart dramatically stops beating, she opens her vampire eyes for the first time…and the screen goes blank! You get the picture.

If you think being the star of a five-movie, multi-million dollar franchise gives you any pull when it comes to casting your onscreen daughter, well, you'd be wrong. (Then again, that scenario doesn't really apply to many people.)

According to Kristen Stewart, she and soon-to-be-onscreen hubby Robert Pattinson didn't have any say in the casting of their half-vampire, half-human daughter in "Breaking Dawn." In fact, she didn't know anything about Mackenzie Foy, the actress cast as Renesmee, until "Breaking Dawn" director Bill Condon called her.

"[He] was like, 'Wait until you see this kid. If you and Rob had a kid, this would be it,'" Kristen told MTV News. "I was like, 'That's so weird.' She just looks like—she sort of looks like Bella. Which is absolutely right. Although the funny thing is she has green eyes, and we both have to wear brown contacts together."

Don't be surprised if in the year 2025, Mackenzie Foy is a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood. The 9-year-old model-actress is getting pretty much the biggest career boost ever by being cast as the supernatural spawn of vampire Edward Cullen and his human bride Bella Swan. At first glance, Mackenzie is certainly a good visual representation of what we imagined Renesmee to look like from the "Breaking Dawn" novel. But how does she compare to what the actual child of actors Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart might look like (emphasis on might)?

We visited the digital manipulation-eriffic site MorphThing.com to find out. We plugged in RPattz and KStew's photos to see what their own daughter could look like. Check out the results above (Baby Stewart-Pattinson is on the left, Mackenzie is on the right). The two share some striking commonalities: similar face shapes, for one, and nearly identical noses for two. But what do you think? Do you think Mackenzie Foy is the right Renesmee (based either on our photographic evidence or just your gut)? Cast your vote after the jump! (And check out some adorable Rob baby photos while you're at it!)
