Rachelle Lefevre Not Reprising her Role as Victoria in Eclipse

From the commotion about the Volturi to one about Victoria, it seems.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA ADDS ACTRESS
BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD TO FILM FRANCHISE

Actress Rachelle Lefevre Will Be Replaced By Howard In The Role Of Victoria

Los Angeles – July 28, 2009 – Summit Entertainment announced today that Bryce Dallas Howard will take over the role of “Victoria” in the studio’s upcoming production of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE. Actress, Rachelle Lefevre, who portrayed the character in TWILIGHT as well as the upcoming release of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON, will not continue in the role due to scheduling conflicts with another commitment the actor has made.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE will start filming in Vancouver this coming August.THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, the third film in the studio’s TWILIGHT film franchise based on Stephenie Meyer’s blockbuster book series, will be directed by David Slade from a screenplay written by Melissa Rosenberg. The film will be released theatrically in North America on Wednesday, June 30, 2010.

“We are incredibly happy that Bryce has agreed to come into the franchise,” said Erik Feig, Summit’s President of Worldwide Production and Acquisitions. “Rachelle brought “Victoria” to great screen life and Bryce will bring a new dimension to the character. The franchise is lucky to have such a talented actress as Bryce coming in to fill the role.”

Howard most recently starred in TERMINATOR SALVATION as Kate Connor and has been seen in SPIDER-MAN 3, LADY IN THE WATER, and THE VILLAGE. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for her leading performance as an actress in the HBO film AS YOU LIKE IT.

In THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.

[minamic: I guess I can say this for my fellow admins, but we love Rachelle as Victoria. In essence, her screentime, collectively, in the first three movies of the franchise, is small. Despite that, she was one of the only actors that we found really had impact in Twilight. We love her interviews and like that she's very intelligent (kind of rare in Hollywood, you know?) And she embraced the fandom, no matter how crazy we were!

Not sure if Bryce is going to be able to step into her shoes, but at least she's got the red-hair going on for her already. :P]

    Dammit dammit dammit!

    When Rome gave me the link, upon reading it parang lumaglag panga ko sa nabasa ko. Seriously Summit, ang gaganda ng excuses nyo pag nagtatanggal kayo ng actors sheesh.

    I'm saddened because I love Rachelle (I know we all do). When I saw her name in the casting list of Twilight, I knew she was meant for the part. I really feel bad about this news.

    That's a bad move for Summit! With just a 10 day overlap on her schedule, they booted her out!!! Not fair!!!
