Mackenzie Foy talks about Kristen and Breaking Dawn part 2

TwilightPoison I’d really like to know what you learned about acting from the other cast members that you got to work with?
Mackenzie Foy: Well, I learned the most by watching them because they would be themselves and then they would become the character that they become.

Is there one thing that you learned by watching one person in particular, that you took in and thought “I want to be able to do that”?
M: There’s some cool stunts that everyone did, there’s a couple of flips and I thought that was very cool.

Now, on the press conference you mentioned the swear jar… Who was the biggest offender?
M: Like I said, I don’t want anybody else to get in trouble! (laughs)

Is there anybody who didn’t have to put any quarters in the swear jar?
M: Um… Stephenie (Meyer), Taylor (Lautner), Noel (Fisher), Dr. Guri (Weinberg), and there were some other people like Miss Tracey (Heggins), Miss Judi (Shekoni). Most of the Cullen guys. They didn’t say any swear words. Oh! And Miss Ashley (Greene). She didn’t say any.

What was your first time meeting, Taylor, Kristen and Rob like?
M: Well I met Kristen and Rob in the hair and make up trailer, and I think the first time I met Taylor was… in the first scene actually.

Who was the biggest prankster on set? Or the biggest jokester?
M: Rob was pretty funny. He had some pretty funny jokes.

He made you laugh a lot?
M: Yes. And Mr. Guri, he was really funny too.

When you wrapped up did they show up for your last scene?
M: Yeah, it was just me and Kristen.
You were the final two?
M: Yes.

But the rest of the crew probably showed up right? “That’s a wrap on Mackenzie”!
M: The crew was there and the visual effects guy and all that stuff, because it had to do with the wolves. All the other cast, they weren’t wrapped yet, they just had the day off so it was just me and Kristen. It was nice.

Elizabeth Reaser and Stepahnie Myer say Kristen’s „mom skills“ were natural-

“I was completely blown away. I thought she was really wonderful. It was fun to watch her on set with a kid and to see how she handled that. It was pretty cute.” – Elizabeth Reaser

She put so much thought into [playing a mom] beforehand. She kind of fell in love with Mackenzie. … She was a natural with it. She just got that instinct to protect on her own.– Stephanie Myer

Guri Weinberg who plays Stephan in the Breaking Dawn Movie part 2 talks about Mackenzie and mentions how Rob and Kristen interaction with her

Guri Weinberg who plays Stephan in the Breaking Dawn Movie part 2 talks about Mackenzie and mentions how Rob and Kristen… Okay maybe only mentions Rob and Kristen but its a very cute story so read it:)

Straight from his blog: 

When I first met Mackenzie, I knew she was special. What I didn’t understand was how badly she could kick my a$$. Let me explain.

I met Mackenzie in October, 2010 when some of the new cast flew into Baton Rouge for some make-up/wardrobe screen tests and to discuss our roles with director, Bill Condon. While we were there, we got an invitation from the producers for a dinner party. Imagine our surprise when we show up and see Rob, Kristen, Stephanie, Ashley, Kellan, Nikki and Jackson.

And Mackenzie.

Mackenzie and I bonded immediately. She has a lot in common with my wife – child actor (not anymore, obviously, but my wife was a child actor), a Scorpio, a martial artist and an ace student. And the ability to make me feel…very juvenile. I’ll explain.

It started with the hand slapping. You know that game where one person lays their hands on the other persons hands and the person whose hands are on the bottom tries to slap and the person whose hands are on the top tries to avoid getting slapped? Well of course I lost. Whether I was the slapper or the slappee. And I lost…a lot. It drove me insane. How can I lose this game to a 10 year old girl? Where is my age advantage?

So, I keep challenging her. Over and over. To the point that she would sigh every time she saw me coming for more. People are thinking I have lost my mind. We’re in between takes and I am running over to Mackenzie for a rematch. And losing. So, Mackenzie started feeling bad for me and introduced a new game – the staring game.

OK – I GOT this! I’m GOOD at this one! I just need to make sure she blinks first.

I mentioned she is a Scorpio, right? Right. So, I kept losing that one too. At this point, she pities me. Now, she’s trying desperately to figure out a game I COULD win. She never did figure out a game I might win.

„Mr. Guri…I made you a picture.“, she says.

„No „Mr.“, Mackenzie. We’re co-workers“, I tell her.

She thinks for a second. She has been raised to respect adults…how does she handle me?

„OK…Dr. Guri“, she smiles.

I dig that little chick.

The name stuck and for the rest of filming, she called me „Dr. Guri“ and made me these amazing pictures that related to our times filming BD. In particular, when she knew I was going to quit smoking, she was my biggest champion on set for that and drew me a motivational picture that is on my fridge right now. I haven’t quit yet but every time I walk into my kitchen, I get inspired all over again. If you’re reading this, Mackenzie, I promise I’ll get there.

She did have another name reserved for Noel Fisher and I – Salt ‘n’ Pepa. We would often sing pop songs on set in full wardrobe with our Romanian dialects and this delighted Mackenzie…a lot. I was relieved. Up until now, I was thinking I was boring her to tears.

And the cursing. As anyone on set can tell you, the adults were very partial to a few swear words. Mackenzie was unimpressed. I jokingly told her she should incorporate a cursing jar on set and make people pay up every time they cursed in front of her. She not only did it, she cleaned up. She’s Bill Gates in a 10 year old’s body.

I dig that little chick.

She was so professional and mature that she made every adult there want to be a better adult. Obviously, this is a huge credit to her amazing parents, who have done an extraordinary job raising such a gifted child. Most people don’t understand what a child actor goes through over and above what a typical actor deals with on set. Their grades have to be kept up or they can’t work. They have school time every day and often that time is broken up by filming, making it difficult to focus on either school or acting. They are often not respected as much as adult actors, despite having twice the workload. They are surrounded by crazy entertainment industry folks instead of friends and classmates. It aint easy…but she made it look easy. She was not only a straight A student but she had everyone’s respect.

Watching her with Kristen and Rob was nothing short of beautiful. She fit right in. She deserves all the success heading her way and I feel honored to have worked with her.

Now, if I could only come up with a game I could win with her…

Robert Pattinson Swears by Mackenzie Foy Talent

Twilight Saga star Robert Pattinson dropped by MTV to debut a new trailer for Water for Elephants and take fan questions, which included Twilight inquiries about Breaking Dawn co-str Mackenzie Foy in the role of Renesmee.

During the Robert Pattinson session at MTV, Pattinson talked about young Breaking Dawn co-star Mackenzie Foy and her time on the set. Robert Pattinson jokingly told MTV that the clever Mackenzie Foy is using the Breaking Dawn cast to her advantage with language. „She’s got a lot of money out of us swearing around her,“ Pattinson revealed. „I do it by accident, and especially Kristen does it by accident, because she’ll apologize with a swear. She’s like, ‘Oh sh–! Ugh!’ She can’t stop doing it for about 15 minutes, and [Mackenzie] just waits there [with her hand out].“

As for her character, Renesmee, Robert Pattinson also mentioned how Foy is playing a difficult part in Breaking Dawn. „She’s a great actress. She’s really sweet,“ confessed Pattinson. „She has to do a hard part as well, because she’s doing — I don’t want to get into special-effects stuff — but she’s playing a baby in some scenes.“

Robert Pattinson went on to say that some of the scenes for Mackenzie Foy have been challenging since they’re doing strange things in Breaking Dawn.

Mackenzie Foy is the Luckiest Child in the World

Mackenzie Foy is probably the most luckiest child in the world! Who else has Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart for parents? (ok, so we mean Edward Cullen and Bella Swan…)
And now the 10-year-old actress who plays Renesmee in the final Twilight Saga film has been praised for being a „sweetheart“ on set.
In an interview with MTV News, Elizabeth Reaser who plays Edward’s mum, Esmee said:
„She’s wonderful, and she lives across the hall from me in Baton Rouge, and she’s a wonderful, great actress. She never complains about anything. She’s so professional about everything. She’s such a sweetheart.” 

Elizabeth also fuelled the rumours that Rob and Kristen were a a couple, saying that if the couple had a child together in real life, they would look like Mackenzie.

She added: “I think it was really well cast between Rob and Kristen. She could be their kid, you know?” Elizabeth added. “She looks like that.”

What do you think?

The first part is due out at the end of this year. Mackenzie, who posted this photo on her Facebook page, has already taken a step on the road to stardom, appearing in shows such as Hawaii Five-O and Flashforward.


Andrea Gabriel ( Kebi) talks about Mackenzie Foy and working in ‘Breaking Dawn’ on a new intreview!

Andrea Gabriel is casted in Breaking Dawn as Kebi, a vampire from the Egyptian Coven. Check out this great interview!

Let’s talk about your next “big break”, Breaking Dawn – how’d you get involved in that?
Well, I auditioned… again. It was just a good audition – and I think I found out about that in August, and they didn’t make the announcements for the Covens because they have A LOT of Covens in this one. I don’t think I’m releasing any spoilers because the books have been published – I’m not sure what’s in the book and what’s in the script, but it’s – for people who love the books… this is seriously… they are going all out, this is prom. You know what I mean? [laughs] This is formal.

You guys are filming part one and part two at the same time?

Yeah, they’re doing them at the same time.

Does that make for long days?

Yeah, you’re only doing one unit at a time. I think that it can get confusing [laughs], but they have it organized – I couldn’t do it, what they’re doing with all of the scheduling and all of the green screening, there’s a lot of detail in this stuff. Way more than LOST, I was never aware in LOST that there was any CGI going on – if they did CGI later, it was surprising… and I was like “Oh, I didn’t know they were going to do that.” Like when were in solitary doing the stuff in Iraq – all of that was real, but then in one sequence when he’s [Sayid] walking on army base and actually one one side of the army base it looks exactly like it does, but on the other side has all of this lush foliage because it’s Hawaii – and they were real army barracks from World War II. So the other side they CGI’d out to make it desert – that had nothing to do with my acting, it had nothing to do with what I was doing. So it was really funny having to act with stuff that is not there – I’ve never done that before.
@Twilightfreak72 wanted to know what it was like on the set of Breaking Dawn – and what was your favorite part of playing a vampire?
[laughs] It’s a lot of fun – the vampires are a blast… all of the people who are in this cast… it’s a wonderful group, and it’s very diverse. Just like there’s not two of any one kind – it’s a real bonding experience because we’re all in the same boat, we’re all on location and our families, our homes and our pets are all [laughs] very far away. So it does feel like camp. And then, my favorite part of playing a vampire is… I guess just being a badass. [laughs]
Are you wearing a lot of makeup in this role?
Not a lot, no. There’s certain vampire traits that I have, but no… I mean these are hot vampires. [laughs] These are runway vampires, they’re very stylish, they’re very cool… there’s not a bad looking one in it that I can see. [laughs] I think this vampire thing is a good racket if you can get it because they’re going to surrounded by hot co-workers.
Is this a physical role?
Mine’s not, no. There are some very physical roles – mine is not as physical as some of them. Yeah, there’s going to be a ton of action in this – that’s part of what they’re working on right now. It’s going to be like crazy… crazy action.
Another Twitter question, TwiLifeLover wanted to know: Did you really enjoy working with the cast? Was it easy? And were they funny?
[laughs] Yes… yes… and yes. [laughs] Yeah, I’m having a great time – and everybody is hilarious. There’s some very clever… we laugh a lot… we laugh a lot. We have little inside vampire jokes, it’s a lot of fun.
And most of the cast is a lot younger than you.
Um, it depends. The main characters are younger, yeah, but as for the vampires they kind of run the gambit. There are a few in my age range, there are few in their early twenties, and then there are a few that are older. But the main characters – it’s geared towards the kids.

One last Twitter question, _Cammie_ wanted to know what you thought about Mackenzie Foy?

Oh, she’s awesome. She’s really… really… really cool. She’s VERY smart, and she’s really precocious – and not precocious in a showy kind of way that sometimes kid actors can be – you can tell that she is very wise. And wise beyond her years. And she [laughs] complains less than anybody [laughs] on the set… the adults tend to whine more than she does. She’s quite a trooper with a great attitude all of the time. She’s really wonder and really pretty – she’s going to be a stunner.
Since the cast has been together for a while now, were you worried about being the newcomer?
Well, yeah… they’re all pretty well bonded so it’s just like showing up at a new job or a new school – and since I’ve guest starred on a lot of shows I kind of know what it feels like to step into that situation. And usually people are very welcoming to newcomers. It’s a long process, so it’s almost like you’ve become accustomed to each other – you become part of the gang.
Obviously Breaking Dawn is taking up a lot of your time, do you have any plans for when you’re done filming? Anything else you want to work on?
We’ll see. [laughs] You kind of have to see where your schedule is at, you know?
I guarantee this [Breaking Dawn] will open a lot of doors.
Aww, well thank you.
