where's leah?

Tara D said...

That's a good question, and something I was wondering too. You would think for sure that they would have already cast her role, but so far, no one is saying anything. :(

Cindy said...

I thought I heard somewhere that Leah would not be a part of New Moon ~ but I could be wrong.

Cindy said...

And by the way....THANK YOU SO MUCH TARA!!!!! :-)

Shelly said...

Perfect casting for Alec! That guy is SO creepy in the movies he was in as a kid.

yeah this cast is great! leah has a pretty small part in new moon so i think its not too important to cast her immediately right? some people said that vanessa hudgens would play her. i don't think so that sounds like a rumor. plus she's too small and she has too much of a pretty face
