By now you've got the cast from the first three films of 'The Twilight Saga' figured out, right? From the vampires to the nomads to the humans to the wolf pack to the Volturi -- you have them all sorted out, categorized and cataloged. Now add loads more to your list, as during the past couple of weeks many new faces have been added to the cast of 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.'
To help you out, here's a handy "Who's Who" list of the new additions:
Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy)
The only new addition to the Cullen family is nine-year old actress and model Mackenzie Foy, who was confirmed by Stephenie Meyer herself on the Twilight Facebook page as the one to play Renesmee, Bella and Edward's daughter. According to IMDb, her only other acting experiences have been appearances in two TV series, 'FlashForward' (2010) and 'Til Death' (2009). Nothing has been said about who will be playing Renesmee as a baby and toddler, although the possibility of CGI work is ever present.
Irina Denali (Maggie Grace)
Irina, one of the three Denali coven "sisters," will be played by Maggie Grace, whom you may have seen in 'Taken' (2009), as well as TV's 'Lost' (2004-10). Irina's vengeful act against the Cullens -- an ill-informed decision brought about by her grief for her wolf-murdered lover Laurent -- involves the Volturi and the Cullens in yet another epic stand-off.
Tanya Denali (MyAnna Buring)
MyAnna Buring will portray Tanya, another of the Denali "sisters." This one, however, has a history with Edward Cullen. The centuries-old strawberry blond vampire -- one of the originators of the succubus myth -- still harbors feelings for the mind-reading Cullen, even though he doesn't feel the same way. The Swedish-born Buring has been in dozens of small television and movie roles, such as 'The Descent' (2005) and 'Doomsday' (2008).
Katrina Denali (Casey LaBow)
The third Denali "sister," Katrina (or Kate), will be played by Casey LaBow, who was last seen in 'Skateland' (2010), which also starred Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in 'The Twilight Saga.' Kate's special vampire ability is a Taser-like current she can use to bring others down -- all they've got to do is touch her skin. In 'Breaking Dawn' she finds her mate, the nomad Garrett (who is yet to be cast).
Carmen (Mia Maestro)
Mia Maestro will play Carmen, who along with her mate Eleazar, originally came from Spain and later join the Denali coven. Edward describes her as "a compassionate soul," and she is the first of the witnesses to accept Renesmee, angering her family.
Eleazar (Christian Camargo)
Eleazar is portrayed by Christian Camargo, whose recent work includes 'The Hurt Locker' (2009) and 'National Treasure: Book of Secrets' (2007). The Spanish Eleazar was once a Volturi guard, but left them to live a more peaceful life with Carmen; they eventually find the Denali coven. He is also the one who explains Bella's special mind-shielding abilities to her, helping her understand how to fully use it to protect herself and others from the Volturi.
THE AMERICAN NOMADS
Garrett (Lee Pace)
Lee Pace is taking on the role of Garrett, Carlisle's close friend and the future mate of Katrina Denali. Pace was nominated for a Golden Globe for his work in the TV movie 'Soldier's Girl' (2004), and he also starred in 'Pushing Daisies' (2007-2009), 'A Single Man' (2009) and 'Marmaduke' (2010). Garrett is a tall, handsome vampire with sandy hair and a ponytail. He has an adventurous spirit, and joins the Denali coven after the Volturi leave.
Peter (Erik Odom)
Peter will be played by Erik Odom, who has had roles on TV's 'The Bureau' (2009) and 'Wicked Attraction' (2009). Peter's change occurred in the aftermath of the Southern Vampire Wars, during which he befriended Jasper and became mated to Charlotte. Peter is described in the books as a tall, blond vampire. He and Charlotte came to Forks to lend support to the Cullens against their standoff with the Volturi.
Charlotte (Valorie Curry)
Peter's mate, Charlotte, will be played by Valorie Curry, an actress who appeared in several episodes of the critically acclaimed TV show 'Veronica Mars' (2005-2006). The tiny and white-blond Charlotte was created for Maria's newborn army and was about to be destroyed by Jasper when Peter yelled for her to run. Both escaped safely, eventually becoming mates. She and Peter stayed friends with Jasper and the Cullens, visiting regularly.
Mary (Toni Trucks)
Toni Trucks will play Mary, an American nomad who has come to help the Cullens against the Volturi. As an actress, Trucks has had roles on the big screen, in 'Music and Lyrics' (2007), as well as on television, in 'All of Us' (2007) and 'Veronica Mars' (2007).
Randall (Bill Tangradi)
Another American nomad allying with the Cullens, Randall will be played by Bill Tangradi. You may recognize him from TV's 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' (2009) or 'The Good Wife' (2010).
THE EGYPTIAN COVEN
Amun (Omar Metwally)
Amun, the leader of the Egyptian coven, will be played by Omar Metwally. The actor has had roles in 'Rendition' (2007) and 'Munich' (2005). Although Amun came to help the Cullens against the Volturi, he is mistrustful of Carlisle, fearing he might try and "steal" Benjamin.
Kebi (Andrea Gabriel)
Andrea Gabriel, who is known for her roles on TV's 'Lost' (2004-2010), 'House' (2009) and 'Criminal Minds' (2006), will portray Kebi, Amun's quiet and obedient mate. Kebi stood alongside Amun and the rest of her coven as a witness for the Cullen family, but neither her nor Amun would touch Renesmee.
Benjamin (Rami Malek)
Rami Malek will play Benjamin, the Egyptian vampire whose special gift is his ability to physically influence the elements -- Earth, fire, water, air. Although he played an Egyptian pharaoh in both 'Night at the Museum' films (2006, 2009), we hope that his appearance in 'Breaking Dawn' will be less cartoonish and worthy of his vampire eminence.
Tia (Angela Sarafyan)
Benjamin's mate Tia will be played by Angela Sarafyan, whose work includes 'Love Hurts' (2009) and appearances on television's 'The Mentalist' (2008) and 'CSI: NY' (2006). Bella Swan calls Tia a quiet woman, "though when she did speak there was great insight and gravity to everything she said."
Senna (Tracey Higgins)
The role of Senna will be played by newcomer Tracey Higgins. Senna -- described in the book as a dark-haired, tall and long-bodied character who wears animal skins -- is a quiet member of the ancient Amazon coven. The coven has lived outside civilization for eons, and no longer attempt to seem human while maintaining the traditional vampire diet.
Zafrina (Judi Shekoni)
The British-born Judi Shekoni will play Zafrina, whose special ability to create visual illusions was going to help the Cullens' plan of attack against the Volturi. Zafrina helped Bella harness her mental-shield powers, and in doing so, became close to Renesmee. Shekoni has been on TV's 'Brothers and Sisters' (2007) and the UK's 'EastEnders' (2002).
THE IRISH COVEN
Maggie (Marlane Barnes)
Marlane Barnes, who will also co-star in Terrence Malick's new movie 'Tree of Life,' will play Maggie, the small, red-curled vampire whose special ability is to know when she is being lied to -- a skill the Cullens found critical to knowing what the Volturi, especially Aro, meant to do with Renesmee.
Siobhan (Lisa Howard)
Lisa Howard will play Siobhan, one of the Irish coven's leaders. Carlisle believes she has the gift of influencing events by willing their outcome in reality. But will her wishes for the Volturi battle come to fruition?
Liam (Patrick Brennan)
Patrick Brennan will portray Liam, Siobhan's mate and the other leader of the Irish coven. Described in the book as hard-faced and physically imposing, he arrives along with his coven to ally with the Cullens against Aro's coven.
Vladimir (Noel Fisher)
Noel Fisher will play Vladimir, whom Jacob rather aptly nicknamed "Dracula." Vladimir and Stefan showed up in Forks uninvited, but wanting to participate in what they hoped would be the defeat and destruction of the Volturi, who unseated them from their perch as the ruling vampire family. Fisher's past work includes TV's 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit' (2009) and 'The Riches' (2007-2008), as well as 'Final Destination 2' (2003).
Stefan (Guri Weinberg)
Stefan will be played by Guri Weinberg, whose past films include 'You Don't Mess With The Zohan' (2008) and 'Munich' (2005). Along with Vladimir, Stefan also desires revenge on the Volturi.
The European Nomad, Alistair (Joe Anderson) Last but not least, Alistair will be played by Joe Anderson, an actor who has appeared in such films as 'The Crazies' (2010), 'Amelia' (2009) and 'Love Happens' (2009). The brooding, misanthropic, English, non-vegetarian Alistair counts Carlisle as a close friend, although he doesn't visit more than once a century. He arrived to bear witness for the Cullens, but fled before the Volturi even arrived.
Holy red-eyed vampires, Batman! This is quite an epic cast for 'Breaking Dawn'! Of course, Summit hasn't confirmed that all roles have been cast, and there are still a few unannounced ones (Kachiri, anyone?). In the meantime, you can start counting down the days until 'Breaking Dawn Part I' hits theaters on Nov. 18, 2011.
