Alias star joins The Twilight Saga : Breaking Dawn


Big week for “Twilight : Breaking Dawn” casting news – they must be rushing to fill spots over there in Forks?

“Alias” star Mia Maestro, MyAnna Buring (“The Descent”) and Casey LaBow (TVs “Moonlight”) have been cast as the Denali clan in the Bill Condon-directed flick, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Christian Camargo had already been announced as the Denali fam patriarch.

Buring and LaBow will join the recently cast Maggie Grace as a trio of Russian vampire sisters of the Denali coven. Buring is playing Tanya, a rival to Kristen Stewart’s Bella for the attention of Edward (Rob Pattinson), while LaBow will play Kate, who has the ability to produce an electric current that can shock opponents. (Grace is playing villainous Irina.)

Maestro portrays Carmen and Camargo is Eleazar, the two Spanish heads of the coven, which in the “Twilight” universe is the only other non-human-feeding vampire clan besides the the Cullen clan.

To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the date of two tribes hangs. Now Bella has made her decision; a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable consequences.

“The Twilight Saga : Breaking Dawn”, which will be released in two parts, films in November.
