Bryce Dallas Howard Takes Over Role of Victoria in Eclipse

by at . Comments

Twilight fans will soon have a new star to scream over.

Bryce Dallas Howard is taking over the role of Victoria from Rachelle Lefevre, whose committment to the movie Barney's Version made it impossible for her to begin shooting Eclipse on August 17 in Vancouver.

Lefevre portrayed the Bella-hating Victoria in Twilight and will do so again in November's New Moon.

"We are incredibly happy that Bryce has agreed to come into the franchise," said Erik Feig, president of Worldwide Production and Acquisitions for Summit Entertainment. "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."
