The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Casts The Denali Clan

A few days ago, Maggie Grace was cast in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn as Irina. As fans know, the character is a member of the Denali clan, a "vegetarian" group of vampires, much like the Cullens. But you can't have a clan with only one member, and now a few more names have been announced. THR reports that MyAnna Buring, Mia Maestro and Casey LaBow will play the female members of the group with Christian Camargo playing the patriarch. Buring will play Tanya, a vampire who competes with Bella for Edward's love, LaBow plays Kate, who has the power to produce an electric current, and Maestro is the female leader, Carmen.

Filming for the project is set to commence in Vancouver and Baton Rouge come November. Being made as two films, both directed by Bill Condon, the first film will be released on November 18, 2011 and the second will come out a year later on November 16, 2012.
