Quantcast

Summit has announced the casting for numerous characters for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, including various Covens and Nomads.  Here is the press release with photos. Click the links for each actors IMDb page. I am still hunting for verification on who a few of the actors are and didn’t want to post the wrong info.

Summit Entertainment announced today the following have been cast in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN for roles in The Amazon Coven, The Egyptian Coven, The Irish Coven and The Romanian Coven as well as the American and European Nomads as outlined below.

——


THE AMAZON COVEN
· The Amazon Coven is comprised of Tracey Heggins as Senna and Judi Shekoni as Zafrina.

· Among the oldest vampires in the world, Senna and Zafrina are descendants of an ancient Amazonian tribe.  They have lived outside of civilization for centuries and therefore make no attempt to keep up a human facade. Though they drink human blood, the Amazons have long been allies of Carlisle.

——


THE EGYPTIAN COVEN
· The Egyptian Coven is comprised of:
o Omar Metwally (RENDITION, MUNICH) as Amun.
o Andrea Gabriel (Lost, House) as Kebi.
o Rami Malek (NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM) as Benjamin.
o Angela Sarafyan (LOVE HURTS, THE GOOD GUYS) as Tia.

· The Egyptian Coven consists of Amun, Kebi, Benjamin, and Tia, with Amun as the leader. It is stated that even though they are not a biological family, they could pass for one. Amun is extremely protective of his family and fearful of Aro.

——


THE IRISH COVEN
· The Irish Coven is comprised of Marlane Barnes (THE TREE OF LIFE) as Maggie, Lisa Howard as Siobhan and Patrick Brennan as Liam.

· The Irish Coven, a relatively young group, was founded by Siobhan and Liam, but Maggie’s talent made her an important element of it. They are not vegetarian but they are civilized.

——


THE ROMANIAN COVEN
· The Romanian Coven is comprised of Noel Fisher (THE PACIFIC, FINAL DESTINATION 2) as Vladimir and Guri Weinberg (MUNICH) as Stefan.

· The Romanian Coven is one of the oldest covens in the world and they were the ruling vampire family until they were unseated by the Volturi.  For that reason they harbor a centuries old resentment of the Italian coven.

——



THE AMERICAN NOMADS
· The American Nomads are comprised of:
o Lee Pace as Garrett (Pushing Daisies, THE GOOD SHEPHERD).
o Toni Trucks (MUSIC AND LYRICS) as Mary.
o Bill Tangradi (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) as Randall.
o Erik Odom as Peter.
o Valorie Curry (Veronica Mars) as Charlotte.

· Turned during the Revolutionary War, Garrett has chosen to live a nomadic existence, wandering the world on his own. Garrett has never lost the rebellious spirit of his human life, and loves a good fight, always rooting for the underdog. Though not a vegetarian, Garrett is among Carlisle’s closest and oldest friends.

· Mary and Randall are American nomadic vampires.

· Peter and Charlotte are nomadic vampires and mates.  They were created during the aftermath of the Southern Vampire Wars, in which Jasper was a key player.  They have remained friends with Jasper ever since.

——


THE EUROPEAN NOMADS
· The European Nomads are comprised of Joe Anderson (THE CRAZIES) as Alistair

· A nomadic vampire from England, Alistair has a misanthropic, brooding personality and a deep mistrust of all authority.  Although he counts Carlisle as his closest acquaintance, he doesn’t visit more than once a century.

At first glance, I am most excited to see Lee Pace as Garrett (although many of you were not excited about that casting) and Joe Anderson as Alistair.

  • Anita

    I like almost all of them.. I loooveee lee pace as garret, he’s soooo perfect.. but noel fisher as vladimir? that’s weird… and the amazons, not sure. but overall I like them..

  • Anitaplove

    I like almost all of them.. I loooveeee lee pace as garret, he's really perfect for the role, but I'm not sure about noelfisher as vladimir, that's weird, and the amazons, I'm not sure, and there's one of them missing.. but overall, I like them all.. they didn't say anything about nahuel though…

  • Barbyhanem76

    i wish they were 10hrs each hehehe

  • Chrissy

    I'm disappointed with Garrett… I always pictured Tom Felton in that role.

  • Sia

    That's cool and I'm loving the casting. Thanks for putting this together !!

  • sing123

    Aldo Quintino auditioned for Nahuel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Tammi B.

    those three do not show up til near the end of the book. This is only casting for the first part I believe. They'll probably cast them a bit later on.

  • Mandy

    They are all what I pictured in my head except Benjamin I pictured him some what different. But Mackenzie Foy is EXACTLY what I pictured of Renesmae. So excited for BD! :)

  • Maciechunn

    I love the people who got picked but I am pissed about the dates 11/16/2011 for part one I think I can wait that long but part 2 11/18/2012 I can not wait that long why cant u put then into 1 movie I love The Twilight Saga I will sit in the theaters for 6 hours

  • Mariatobias2987

    thats not what I imagined the amazon coven to look like but we'll see after hair and make up… I think the Egyptian coven looks great thats what I expected and Lee Pace for Garrett was a good choice too I can really see it. I am so excited to see how it all turns out and since we have to wait a year they better make it as close to the book and make it just another amazing movie and make it longer then eclipse although I liked it, it was too short……. :) excited!!!!

  • Ortalismusicoh

    think they did a gr8 choice with the cast !!!!!

  • ErinTWILIGHT

    Yeah! I'm especially curious who they will cast as Nahuel…vital character people!!

  • Alice

    I don't mind the castings, but the one that sticks out for me is the one who plays Maggie. She IS my Maggie, and I'm thrilled =) The actress is exactly how I imagined her!

  • Ms TLee

    Wow this is the best looking group of people Ive ever seen.. Alistair is a little young but this looks awesome…

  • Tmiller

    YAY! Joe Anderson is going to be in Breaking Dawn! Awesome! Can't Wait!

  • Blondy0769

    I think most books turned movie let the readers down .. we get so into the books we expect the movies to be as good but if they were none of them would be less than 8 to 10 hours long … not that that wouldn't be great but it's just not possible :(

  • Lushlips_1uk

    I notice that there are 3 missing, does that mean that they wont be included in the film? I am talking about Zafrinis partner Kachiri, Also Nahuel and Huilen?

  • toni de rosa

    I think Twilight saga is awesome. I've seen Twilight about 11 times, New Moon about 7 and Eclipse about 8. I can't wait for Breaking Dawn. Too bad we have to wait so long. I think the directors have all done an admirable job with the scripts and scenes. Makeup is perfect and character development over the series is spot on. Breaking Dawn yeah!

  • Carolerae

    Mmmmm, I'm content with them all. =)

  • XxCiaraWattxx

    Whos playing Tanya,Kate and the rest of them ?

  • Avanovalee

    The part about eclipse I didn't like was her putting down edward to go ride with Jacob. Wasn't it Jacob coming to “break her free” and she runs out from school while Edward was away hunting? They left out that whole peice of the story. I was reallt looking foreward to that

  • Ashley

    Has anyone noticed that the Egyption Coven looks like I thought that they would…def Benjamin to a T. But the Europen Nomad..Alistair he looks too young..in the book I thought he seemed to look older…i know that they are trapt in time in looks but still seemed like he was older. Like everyone says make-up does wonders. The Amazon girls look perfect..they just need to be pail and red eyed and their set to go, and as for Zafrina I hope that they have someone for him..he is a important part of the story…maybe they havent cast him yet lets hope.

  • AllyRayJ

    I thought all 3 movies were a bit short, but how much can they fit into a 2 hour movie? They have to cut and change in order to make it work. Eclipse was about Jacob and Bella, not about Edward and Bella. Thats why they showed her dissing him so much, it was all meant to lead up to WHY she was acting like that… because she was denying that she loved him too. That one was meant to touch down on that…

  • Princessjaime23

    i dont think that it matters exactly what they look like just as long as they get play their parts well and make you believe that they are those characters from the book. I think that they have done a really good job on making the story lines match from the book to the movie if they put every thing from the book into the movies the movies would last days and days. also the only thing about the books that i cant stand is how weak and feeble bella is no girl is really like that in real life and she way to emotional.

  • Nevaeh_luke

    i wish it wud continue and not end lol

  • tabby:)

    i think maggie is a perfect casting choice, just how i imagined her..
    i thought the romanian coven would be MUCH older.. maybe because they are old in vampire years but not old looking?
    i LOVE the benjamin choice, the whole egyptian cast is pretty good
    and the amazons are really good chioce as well :)
    alistair and garrett are hott!

  • Amber Mitchell

    same it was so dissapontin to find out that they look like that :'(

  • Brittany

    Haha 10 hours per movie.. Instead of an hour and a half or two hours. Yeah, I'd definitely watch 10 hours of them all. Haha

  • Lizzie Lawless

    WOO! LEE PACE :D :D

  • chelsea

    not to mention that victoria's wig was hideously disgusting! looked soooo fake!

  • Mili

    i agree the movies aren't like the books!!!! i love it all no matter what, BD is going to be better then any other movie thats going to be out around that time!!! love you Edward!!

  • Mandy

    They are all what I pictured in my head except Benjamin I pictured him some what different. But Mackenzie Foy is EXACTLY what I pictured of Renesmae. So excited for BD! :)
