USA Today has a brilliant piece on the youngest cast member of the Twilight family, Mackenzie Foy. Mackenzie of course plays Renesmee, the ever-changing daughter of Bella and Edward in Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Here we get to know Mackenzie a little better including; what she thinks of her remarkable likeness to her pretend parents, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, her love for Kristen, what she got to take home from the set, and what life was like on the set of Breaking Dawn. Read more on Mackenzie below:

As The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 smashes records worldwide, the spotlight is on its pint-size half-human, half-vampire breakout star, Mackenzie Foy.

Foy, 12, agrees “it’s a little weird” how much she looks like her on-screen parents Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. “Kristen’s eyes are green just like mine. And then Rob is kind of goofy. I’m kind of goofy like Rob,” she says, curling up today at the Ritz-Carlton in skinny jeans, a plaid shirt and slim navy high-top Converse sneakers.

Foy had fun on set, from riding a furry mechanical bull (meant to be Jacob the werewolf) to keeping a swear jar for her older stars and donating the proceeds to St. Jude’s hospital. “Some of them paid me in advance,” she said, laughing. Although Stewart, “did say a couple bad words, I’m not gonna lie,” Foy describes Stewart, who guards her character ferociously in the film, as a ” best friend-sister-mom all combined.”

Plus, she got some cool downtime with the cast. “I heard Kristen play her trumpet,” she says, laughing. “Rob got her a trumpet and you could hear in the hotel.”

The chatty, friendly young actress recently saw a Starbucks fall pin-drop quiet when she walked in, but sweetly shrugs off all the attention she’s receiving. Her friends treat her normally, she says, and the home-schooled actress is still having fun off-screen painting, kicking butt as a junior black belt in tae kwon do, and baking her own birthday cakes, a tradition she loves.

As a parting gift, Foy got to take her character’s dragonfly pin with her. “It’s pretty special,” she says. (She left a few behind, too. Foy estimates she lost five baby teeth over the course of the two-year production.)
