Quantcast

Another Eclipse cast update: Catalina Sandino Moreno is Maria

CatalinoSandinoMoreno

Eclipse has officially added another cast member. Catalina Sandino Moreno has been cast as Maria, who we will see in Jasper’s flashbacks. She is involved in raising a vampire army back when Jasper was a young vampire.

Moreno was formerly in Maria Full of Grace and Che. Maria is described in the book this way: “the little black-haired girl, whose features were clearly Mexican, was porcelain in the moonlight… [she] seemed young… still young enough to be called [a] girl.”

This comes after yesterday’s news that Jack Huston will play Royce King II. Still awaiting official word on Leah and Seth casting!

    Hi
    I'm from Monterrey.
    In the Eclipse book said was from Monterrey, Mexico.
    In Monterrey we have an accent “acento norteño”.
    I really hope Catalina, if speaks in spanish, have the accent.
