'Breaking Dawn' Adds Cast for the Covens and Nomads
The cast line-up of "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn" has grown longer with a bunch of new members. Summit Entertainment has announced that they cast these actors to portray the The Amazon Coven, The Egyptian Coven, The Irish Coven, The Romanian Coven, The American Nomads, and The European Nomads.
The Amazon Coven will consist of Tracey Heggins' Senna and Judi Shekoni's Zafrina. They are among the oldest vampires in the world and descendants of an ancient Amazonian tribe that has lived outside of civilization for centuries and therefore they make no attempt to keep up a human facade. Despite drinking human blood, the Amazons are long-time allies of Carlisle.
Joining Rami Malek who is cast as the member of The Egyptian Coven, Benjamin, are Omar Metwally, Andrea Gabriel and Angela Sarafyan. They, in respective order, will portray Amun, Kebi amd Tia. Amun is the leader of The Egyptian Coven and he is extremely protective of his family and fearful of Aro. While this clan is not technically a biological family, they could pass for one.
The Irish Coven has Marlane Barnes' Maggie, Lisa Howard's Siobhan and Patrick Brennan's Liam. This relatively young group is not vegetarian but they are civilized. Though The Irish Coven was founded by Siobhan and Liam, Maggie's talent has made her an important element of it.
On The Romanian Coven, there are Noel Fisher's Vladimir and Guri Weinberg's Stefan. This clan is one of the oldest covens in the world and they were the ruling vampire family until they were unseated by the Volturi. For this reason, the Romanians harbor a centuries-old resentment of The Italian Coven.
Meanwhile, The American Nomads comprise of Lee Pace's Garrett, Toni Trucks' Mary, Bill Tangradi's Randall, Erik Odom's Peter and Valorie Curry's Charlotte. Garrett, who leads this clan, has chosen to live a nomadic existence, wandering the world on his own. Though not a vegetarian, Garrett is among Carlisle's closest and oldest friends. Mary, Randall, Peter and Charlotte are also nomadic vampires.
Last but not least, Joe Anderson is cast as Alistair from The European Nomads. He is a nomadic vampire from England who doesn't trust authority figures. Although he counts Carlisle as his closest acquaintance, he doesn't visit more than once a century.
Previously, The Denali Coven has been cast with Maggie Grace playing Irina, MyAnna Buring starring as Tanya, Casey LaBow portraying Kate, Mia Maestro taking the role of Carmen and Christian Camargo portraying Eleazar. Another cast member in "Breaking Dawn" is Mackenzie Foy who is chosen to portray Edward Cullen and Bella Swan's daughter, Renesmee.
Serving as the last installment of "Twilight" film series, "Breaking Dawn" will be split into two parts: "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part I" which is due November 18, 2011 and "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II" which will come out a year later on November 16, 2012. Bill Condon has been tapped to direct both movies.
Main original cast like Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are set to reprise their roles when the cameras start rolling for "Breaking Dawn" this November.
