LOS ANGELES – 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.
Ever-vocal Twihards agree, and have assembled Twitter handles like @NessieMackenzie, @MackenzieFarmy and @MissKenzieFoy in her honor. “I’ve noticed that Mackenzie is a HUGE fan of Converse, just like Kristen,” tweeted fan @MissKenzieFoy.
In the new film, Foy’s role is expanded from her brief turn in Part 1, playing a young half-bloodsucker who grows rapidly. “One hour she’ll be an infant and the next she’ll be a toddler,” says Foy, whose face was transposed onto younger body doubles through CGI.
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.
Born and raised just outside of Los Angeles, Foy’s parents, a homemaker and truck driver, had no connections to the entertainment industry. Spotted at a dance recital at age 3, Foy soon began booking print jobs modeling, followed by commercials and TV shows. Breaking Dawn — Part 1 was her first film.
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.)
Next projects including horror flick The Conjuring opposite Vera Farmiga. But could there could be more to the story of Jacob and Renesmee (as author Stephenie Meyer has teased)? “I think it’d be fun to come back to Renesmee and see what her life is beyond what Part 2 ends with,” says Foy. “I think it would just be cool to see where her life takes her.”

I tried to translate as best as I could
Who sees them kissing on-screen sees: It’s love. Who stands between them feels: There is a yo-yo love.
Their comments: No comment!
Only their hearts know the truth!
KRISTEN STEWART – she was 17, shy, stubborn, silent as the “Twilight” madness began.
ROBERT PATTINSON – then 22, a London model who lived in three bags. The buddy typ, book worm, techie.
I met both five times – in five years.
And I’ve always asked about love!
The answers? Smiles, silence, shrugs. Later a yes.
First it was game, then PR, then hidden love, then separate love (an affair with director Rupert Sanders). And now?
The German premiere of the last part of the Twilight saga, “Breaking Dawn (release date: Thursday).
BILD: Are you happy that it’s over?
Kristen (22): “I’m happy that the love story is told. I feel liberated and I am free, but I do miss it at the same time. “
BILD: What do you regret?
Robert (26): “There is a price, which you have to pay. You are 24 hours in the job, if you go out in public. “
Kristen: “You’re trying to protect your life, but at the same time you also rob your life.”
BILD: How do you escape from your fame?
Robert: “Fame is like a prison. But I have family and old friends, who are my real world. “
Kristen: “I have to build steel barriers around me. You get a very different view of life and people. You will be thrown out of your comfort zone, you’re apprehensive. But this fear is also a welcome feeling when you grow up, want to explore the world! “
BILD: Your dreams and goals in life?
Robert: “I want to make a lot of films and get better.”
Kristen: “I don’t know what will happen in a year. I never know what to do before the decision is in front of me! “
He smiles. She yawns. When they look at each other, it clicks in their eyes.
In Berlin, Kristen and Robert went bowling in the evening.
The ball of love rolled.
