Casting news for another new The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn character has just broken, and it’s a very familiar face to a lot of Dread Central readers: Maggie Grace of “Lost” and Taken fame.
According to Deadline NY Grace will play a new vampire threat to Kristen Stewart’s Bella [in] the role of Irina, a member of the Denali coven, considered cousins to the Cullen clan as the only other “vegetarian” vampire group. When Irina blames the Cullens for the death of her lover, her actions set in motion a terrifying chain of events.
