Summit Entertainment has found Edward Cullen and Bella Swan's daughter, Renesmee. Mackenzie Foy has been officially cast as the child of vampire-mortal couple in "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn".

"Twilight" books author Stephenie Meyer is the one who confirms the news. "Very excited about our new Renesmee, Mackenzie Foy. She's an amazing young actress and I'm excited to work with her," she writes in a note for Twilight Facebook Fan Page.

Rumor that Foy would be cast in "Breaking Dawn" started a week ago when Maggie Grace was officially tapped to portray villainous vampire Irina. Later, the studio announced the actors who will portray the Denali coven: MyAnna Buring, Casey LaBow, Mia Maestro and Christian Camargo.

The main original cast like Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will all return to reprise their respective roles. Bill Condon is on board to direct this last installment of "Twilight" film series which will be split into two parts.

"The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part I" is due in the U.S. November 18, 2011 while "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II" is slated for November 16, 2012 release. Shooting for both films is planned to begin this November.

Mackenzie Foy was previously seen on TV series " 'Til Death" and "FlashForward".

She's too old to play that part, she's younger in the books but she's very pretty.

i dont know if shes perfect, because of her acting! Of course, shes adorable, but i think shes a bit too olde, because renesmee is four at the end of breaking dawn, and mackenzie is nearly 10! her acting isnt great, but she does look a bit like robert, but not at all like kristen! but who knows? we'll just have to wait and see!!!
