What's wrong with you Summit?!

Rachelle Lefevre had this to say about the recasting of Victoria for eclipse:

LOS ANGELES, Calif. --

Summit Entertainment announced the replacement of "Twilight Saga" star Rachelle Lefevre in the series' third film, "Eclipse," on Tuesday night - and fans weren't the only ones surprised by the news - Rachelle was shocked as well!

"I was stunned by Summit's decision to recast the role of Victoria for ‘Eclipse,'" Rachelle said in a statement to Access Hollywood.

On Tuesday, Summit announced that Bryce Dallas Howard would be taking on the role in "Eclipse," due in May 2010.

"I was fully committed to the ‘Twilight' saga, and to the portrayal of Victoria," Rachelle continued, explaining the turn of events that led to the casting change. "I turned down several other film opportunities and, in accordance with my contractual rights, accepted only roles that would involve very short shooting schedules. My commitment to ‘Barney's Version' is only ten days. Summit picked up my option for ‘Eclipse.' Although the production schedule for ‘Eclipse' is over three months long, Summit said they had a conflict during those ten days and would not accommodate me. Given the length of filming for ‘Eclipse,' never did I fathom I would lose the role over a 10 day overlap. I was happy with my contract with Summit and was fully prepared to continue to honor it. Summit chose simply to recast the part."

The star concluded her statement with a regretful tone.

"I am greatly saddened that I will not get to complete my portrayal of Victoria for the ‘Twilight' audience. This is a story, a theatrical journey and a character that I truly love and about which I am very passionate. I will be forever grateful to the fan support and loyalty I've received since being cast for this role, and I am hurt deeply by Summit's surprising decision to move on without me. I wish the cast and crew of ‘Eclipse' only the very best," she said.

Rachelle will appear in the series' next film, "New Moon," due Nov. 20.

Wow.. I've never been so sad... I feel so sad for Rachelle whose been nothing but true and devoted to this movie and character.
What's the most saddening part is that there was no warning! Then maybe the fans and the actors could help to make this recasting never happend.
 I'm sure that not only the actors, but that Stephenie Meyer would not like Rachelle to be recast!
It's like the whole Taylor Lautner-recast issue. But then, there was no dession made and we got to show our love for Taylor and that the fans wouldn't want a differant actor.
But now, it's done. It's been recast without even us knowing and the part has already been cast to Bryce Dallas..
I feel soo, soo sad!
Pepole are already starting to act out. This is what went on in the twitter world..

(forgive my paint skills..)
seriously summit, If you know what's best for you, you'll do what you can to get Rachelle to come back.
If not you'll have millions of crazy angry twi-hards on your hands. and that's not a good thing..

Rachelle replaced as victoria buy some chick!!!!!!!!

NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! my heart fell a thousand feet when I saw this!!
apperantly rachelle won't be playing Victoria in Eclipse!! (i can just feel the tears building up...)
the other chick who will now play victoria is named Bryce Dallas Howard. Sure, she has red hair. But that's all!
She's not at aaaaaaall what i pictured victoria. Rachelle did such a great job, why Rachelle? why?

Rosamund Pike, Minnie Driver and Rachelle Lefevre are playing Paul Giamatti's many wives in "Barney's Version," the adaptation of the Mordecai Richler novel being directed by Richard Lewis. Robert Lantos is producing via his Serendipity Point Films."Barney's" tells the story of the politically incorrect, fully lived life of the impulsive, irascible and fearlessly blunt Barney Panofsky (Giamatti).

Lefevre will play Clara, Barney's first wife, a wild, troubled artist. Driver plays Barney's second wife, the annoyingly loquacious Mrs. "P." Miriam, Barney's third wife and true love, will be played by Pike.

Principal photography starts Aug. 17 in Rome. Dustin Hoffman also is in the cast, playing Barney's father.

im sooo sad right now, Rachelle was one of my favorite actresses in the Twilight Saga, and was sooo looking foward to the fight scene in eclipse! And in pure acting-ness... wouldn't a actress just DIE to be in the twilight saga movies?
I can't belive she's giving it up for some movie that kinda sounds like a indie movie..
uh, im just bummed out.
what do you think about the switch?

In Rachelles private time she likes too..

...Spend time with her dog and boyfriend, Jamie Thomas!
They all look like a happy bunch. And what a cute dog!

Interview with Rachelle

This is a short but interesting interview with Rachelle, where she talks a little about Rob and his life in the spotlight.

"He's got a really good sense of humour. I've seen him frazzled, but when there were eight paparazzi chasing you and it's just you, it can be scary."

"It could have been bad," Lefevre admits. "But I think because Harry Potter went through it first to their benefit, we were like, ‘The Potter kids went through a director shift and they were okay, so we'll be okay too.'

A third transition will happen later this year in Vancouver when another director, David Slade (30 Days of Night), takes the reins of the next sequel Eclipse.

"It's perfect timing for David because Eclipse is darker than the other two. There's more action. It's not a horror movie, but it is darker."

Rachelle is on Twitter!

Yes, you heard right.. eeeeeeveryone seems to be twittering nowadays!
Now it's Rachelle's turn (even though her name is misspelled... kinda fail.. It's def her!)
So if you got a twitter account, be sure to follow her. If not? It's reaally easy to get one!


Rachelle Lefévre's i en ny photoshoot

En av de snyggaste (enligt min åsikt iallafall) I twilight casten är Rachelle Lefévre! hon glöms ofta bort delvis för att hennes roll i filmen inte är lika stor som restens. Och delvis för att hon inte går på så mycket events.

Men nu har hon gjort en photoshoot för SPEC magazine och vi har nya outtakes för er!
Måste bara säga att hennes hår är too die for! älskar färgen, modellen, lockarna!
Here they are, enjoy!
(klicka på dom för större bild.)

Visst är hon hur snygg som helst?
