Not sure how we missed this story earlier in the week, but it did break the day after the Reaper Awards, so you can’t blame us for moving a little slowly. In any event, it looks like The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has found its Lucy, Canadian actress Kirsten Prout.
Bloody Disgusting got the early word on Prout’s selection, mentioning her past roles as Amanda in the TV series “Kyle XY” and Elektra‘s ward Abby. But how exactly does Lucy fit into the Eclipse storyline?
Turning to the always helpful Twilight Saga Wiki for some assistance, we learned that Lucy was a Southern vampire who worked with Maria (Catalina Sandino Moreno), the vamp who made Jasper (Jackson Rathbone), one of Edward’s “siblings” in the Cullen family. She helped put together an army for Maria before eventually turning on her and being killed by Maria and Jasper. Since the character is described as tall, pale, and blond, it looks like a case of perfect casting!
Shooting should be wrapping up in a few short weeks on David Slade’s Eclipse so this could be the last bit of news we get until things start leaking out in post in anticipation of the film’s June 30th, 2010, release date.
