Runway Model Noot Seear Snags Vampire Vixen Role In ‘New Moon’

Contributed by Jessica Andreas

The gorgeous, violet-eyed vamp that leads unsuspecting humans to their death in “New Moon” will be played by a fashion model, according to E! Online.

25-year-old runway model Noot Seear will be the face of the vampire vixen that is described in the book as “not only the fisherman, but also the bait.”

AnnaLynne McCord, who plays Naomi on “90210,” was in talks for the role last month. The news that she will not be joining the cast will likely disappoint her good friend, and rumored boyfriend, Kellan Lutz, who plays Emmett Cullen.

If you haven’t heard of Seear, don’t feel bad. Known for her “pout and cheekbones” according to New York Magazine, the Canadian model was styled as the Mona Lisa for Yves Saint Laurent’s 1998 ad campaign. Her runway and advertising credits include Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Vera Wang and Pantene Pro-V.

She has also been featured in such heavy-hitters as Cosmopolitan and Vanity Fair.

This beauty was born in Vancouver, where Chris Weitz and team are currently shooting “New Moon,” Does this mean that she won’t get to take the trip to Italy?

Here’s a fun bit of Twilight trivia: her real name is Renata Seear. If that name sounds familiar, it is because Renata was Aro’s bodyguard, mentioned in Breaking Dawn.

Will Renata do justice to the role of one of the most beautiful and deadly vampires in the series? Give us your thoughts below.
