Yesterday, J-14 released an interview with Lucy Hale (from Pretty Little Liars and Privileged) in which she talked about the fact that she not only tried out for "Alice" in Twilight, but she also auditioned for "Jane" in The Twilight Saga: New Moon. "I auditioned for Alice . . . I read the books and I wanted to be part of the first movie so bad," she explained. Since Ashley Greene ultimately nabbed the role, she went back out for "Jane," but Dakota Fanning got that post. Still, she isn't bitter about it. "I love everyone they've cast," she mused, grateful for her current circumstances with being a popular television star.
Her attitude about the whole thing is rather refreshing (not to mention, she has a very Twilight-friendly name), so it begs the question as to whether Lucy Hale might be a good fit for one of the new parts coming up in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part 1 or Part 2).
Among the new female characters introduced in Breaking Dawn, the following spring to mind as a potential fit:
Carmen: She is "black-haired, with a hint of an olive tone to her chalky complexion," and she is one of the "Denali" coven members who appears in both the beginning and the end of Breaking Dawn. This would be a nice grab for any new Breaking Dawn cast mate, since the character has the (based on the book, of course) potential to appear in both films.
Chelsea: This tall, beautiful blond relationship reading-and-altering "Volturi" member strives to protect "Aro" (this suggestion factors in the potential for wig-usage, since we definitely know that's not uncommon with the Saga). She's powerful if not very prevalent, so it would be a fun part to portray for anyone.
Kebi: Since the assumption right now is that Rami Malek will portray "Benjamin" of the Egyptian Coven, it stands to reason that "Kebi" might make it into the film. She's described as, per Twilight Saga Wiki, "dark haired and olive skinned." This wouldn't likely be a speaking role, but it's a role nonetheless!
There are a couple of other possibilities for sure since Breaking Dawn introduces quite a few new ladies to the Twilight scene, but do you have any thoughts on Lucy Hale for any of these parts? Others? Why or why not?
