Discussion topic: Who should play the new characters in Breaking Dawn

Breaking_Dawn_Poster_by_Grodansnagel

In this week’s discussion, let’s talk about who we think should be cast in the film version of Breaking Dawn! There are a ton of new characters, pretty much all vamps from various covens. I realize not all of them will appear in the movie as much more than extras, but it is fun to imagine! Here is a FULL list of new characters in Breaking Dawn (let me know if I missed anyone). Click the names for character descriptions from the Lexicon.

Renesmee Carlie Cullen
Denali: Tanya, Kate, Irina, Carmen, Eleazer
Mapuche: Nahuel (hybrid), Huilen
Nomad: Garrett, Peter, Charlotte, Randall, Mary
Amazonian: Kachiri, Zafrina, Senna
Irish: Liam, Siobhan, Maggie
Egyptian: Amun, Kebi, Benjamin, Tia
European: Charles, Makenna
Romanian: Vladimir, Stefan
Humans: J. Jenks

We may see Peter & Charlotte in the third film. But we can still make guesses.

Thanks to Tania for submitting this topic! Her are her ideas: “I always picture Jamie King as Tanya, Lilly Cole as Maggie and Orlando Bloom as Garrett.”

I also found this video where someone made a video of the actors they would like to see as each character. It is a great compilation. Click through to watch!

  • thetiffn8r

    lol I also, nominate myself to play anyone.

  • thetiffn8r

    It's too bad my back round in theater would probably never get me anywhere, because they want people in the film industry.

  • bella_swan_rocks

    i wanna be nessie that would be a dream come true :)

  • twilightluvindancr

    Aryana Engineer, i think she would be a good nessie,
    (:
    but i want to be zafrina!

  • OliviaNiamhCullen

    Perhaps they could conduct casting calls in America, Europe (Especially the UK :D ), etc.
    Maaaaaaaaybe , just maybe. :)

  • aryley

    Nice I would like to see a casting in Puerto Rico too hehehe ;)

    Henry Cavill as Liam.

    Emma Watson as Senna or Zafrina.

  • tori13130

    they hit the nail on the head with each and every one these cast picks.great job!!
    i hope theres some way summit could see this,,its fabulous!

  • caitlincullen

    that was a pretty good compilation. but i think that the amazon coven was entirely wrong.

  • Nikki89

    Wouldn´t be great if Emma portrayed Bella???
    I mean, she´s such a great actress and so much more sociable than Kristen…
    what do u think?? :D

  • alicecullen13

    i would love to see rachel bilson in breaking dawn. maybe as irina though.

  • Nikki89

    I would like to see Patricia Velasquez as zafrina (she appeared in the munmy) or Kebi

  • xxlilmiztrublexx

    i think megan fox would make a good irina

  • xxlilmiztrublexx

    i nominate myself to be any female…lol

  • beauty34

    I Should play Tia as my name IS Tia! :P

  • beckyboop

    i think my daughter should play nessie cause she is perfect for the part and is small for her age so would fit in lovely plus she loves the film and would make her day

  • shifty02

    ugh… megna fox is to big to be in a twilight movie, i don't think that's something i'd wanna see happen to the franchise, they're so much better off picking nobody's when they do, picking big names is kinda a sell out.

    but if they must…a few months ago ieas reading a bout the idea of ryan reynolds playing garrett and it seems pretty perfect to me, because he's kinda funny in the book.

    and idk where she'd fit because she has such a thick accent but i think paz vega is definitely pretty enough to play a vampire.. maybe makenna

    and i'll admit, it would be awesome if they could get henry cavill in as liam especially since he's what stephenie meyer would have chosen as edward if he wasn't so old.

    Loving some of these cast pics!

    Love the BD poster too…. is that an official one or a fan-made?!? It's so cool!

  • thetiffn8r

    lol! Awesome!

  • kellyd221

    hahahah me too! wanna be in it. but no acting talent whatsoever

  • Nouny

    i think they should bring egyptian actors for the egyptian coven (who, of course can speak english)…. just a suggestion

  • http://amelieandatticus.blogspot.com amelieandatticus

    I nominate my daughter Amelie to play Remesme and my unborn child (due April 2010) to play early Renesme…come on it’s too perfect!! If only my husband would consent!! And in reality I don’t want a child star but how much fun would it be to play around on the set?!?!?!

    Amelie is slender like Remesme and has curly hair….would obviously need a wig as it is not waist length!

  • adriip

    what age is Tia supposed to be? I mean on the book says that Benjamin has a boyish look, so if Tia is her mate, is she supposed to have a girlish look too?

  • JessXD

    i agree completely x

  • Wendy_TE_TE2

    LOL that was too cute!! But speaking of Nessie … how WOULD they do that?? I'm sure there are baby actors that are really smart and can actually do the stuff Nessie did (stroke face, giggle, etc) on cue. What do you think???

  • http://twitter.com/eileenjimena eileenjimena

    well about vlad & stefan.. the actors that play these characters should make me laught like i do when i was reading BD… :)

  • jacob_is_mine09

    I would love to play Carmen. I am doing drama at school and I am considering taking out of school drama classes. I am also considering putting together a video and sending it off.

  • eatboi

    JESS WEIXLER TO PLAY IRINA DENALI!!!! Forever and always! :P

  • sk8boredh3d

    thank you guys for watching my vid! i agree, some of these actors may not fit exactly, but this is how i pictured the characters when I read the books. :)

  • renetay

    i think Maggie from the irish coven should be younger, like 13. Some people on youtube are talking about a girl named Jillian Henry to play Maggie, i think she's perfect

  • courtneyneikirk

    Those are some really good Ideas I found a girl on the internet that some people said looked like Renesmee but I think If they cut and curl her hair she might be a REALLY good Maggie from the Irish coven. Well she may be a little too young but, they did say maggie was supposed to be young guess it depends on how young :)

  • maggie1154

    Hi, my name is Maggie! I am Irish, with light brown hair with natural red/blonde highlights. I am 13 and look my age. I have been acting since I was 7 in local theaters. I have gotten a few main roles. I am out going and a leader. Do you think I would be good for the role? Also, do you know where the auditions are going to be held.

  • steph.nyc97

    I seriously think that Garrett should be ryan reynolds.

  • Brittany S. Smith

    I think I should play Tia because I'm in L.A. so i dont have to fly to auditions and crap( as soon as i find out where they are) and I'm a perfect fit for the character anyways, but alot of people want to be her so I'll just take my chances.

  • Butterbean06

    I got submitted for the part as Kate.. just waiting to hear more

  • Steph

    I REALLY want to play Tia but I don't know where or how I can audition. Can anyone help me out?
