Remember Renesmee in ‘Twilight’? Mackenzie Foy is all grown up – and stars in ‘Nutcracker’

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Vampire babies grow up, just like the rest of us.

This weekend, Mackenzie Foy takes center stage in “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” (in theaters Friday) as Clara, a child whose curiosity drives her into a Disney-sized expansion on the classic holiday tale.

It’s a supersized spotlight for Foy, who first experienced fame in “Twilight” as Renesmee, the half-human, half-vampire hybrid child of Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) in the two “Breaking Dawn” movies. 

Back then, Foy was the kid who installed a swear jar on the franchise’s set. Now, she’s on the cusp of turning 18 and the face of a massive Disney film. “I was 9 and 10 (while making “Twilight”), it feels like so long ago. I was so little, and now I’m almost out of high school,” Foy says.
