Summit Entertainment have announced a whole swath of the supporting cast for the upcoming “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” films – namely those playing the members of the various vampire covens and nomads from around the world. Joining the cast are:
The Amazon Coven
Tracey Heggins (“Medicine for Melancholy,” “Things Fall Apart”) as Senna and Judi Shekoni (“Garfield 2,” “Private Moments”) as Zafrina.
Among the oldest vampires in the world, Senna and Zafrina are descendants of an ancient Amazonian tribe. They have lived outside of civilization for centuries and therefore make no attempt to keep up a human facade. Though they drink human blood, the Amazons have long been allies of Carlisle.
The Egyptian Coven
Omar Metwally (“Rendition,” “Munich”) as Amun, Andrea Gabriel (“Lost,” “House”) as Kebi, Rami Malek (“24,” “Night at the Museum”) as Benjamin, and Angela Sarafyan (“Love Hurts,” “The Good Guys”) as Tia.
The Egyptian Coven consists of Amun, Kebi, Benjamin, and Tia, with Amun as the leader. It is stated that even though they are not a biological family, they could pass for one. Amun is extremely protective of his family and fearful of Aro.
The Irish Coven
Marlane Barnes (“The Tree of Life,” “Artois the Goat “) as Maggie, Lisa Howard as Siobhan and Patrick Brennan as Liam.
The Irish Coven, a relatively young group, was founded by Siobhan and Liam, but Maggie’s talent made her an important element of it. They are not vegetarian but they are civilized.
The Romanian Coven
Noel Fisher (“The Pacific,” “Final Destination 2”) as Vladimir and Guri Weinberg (“You Don’t Mess with the Zohan,” “Cane”) as Stefan.
The Romanian Coven is one of the oldest covens in the world and they were the ruling vampire family until they were unseated by the Volturi. For that reason they harbor a centuries old resentment of the Italian coven.
The American Nomads
Lee Pace (“Pushing Daisies,” “Infamous”) as Garrett, Toni Trucks (“Music and Lyrics,” “All of Us”) as Mary, Bill Tangradi (“Amigo,” “Castle”) as Randall, Erik Odom (“Transposition,” “To Hell and Back”) as Peter, Valorie Curry (“Veronica Mars”) as Charlotte.
Turned during the Revolutionary War, Garrett has chosen to live a nomadic existence, wandering the world on his own. Garrett has never lost the rebellious spirit of his human life, and loves a good fight, always rooting for the underdog. Though not a vegetarian, Garrett is among Carlisle’s closest and oldest friends.
Peter and Charlotte are nomadic vampires and mates. They were created during the aftermath of the Southern Vampire Wars, in which Jasper was a key player. They have remained friends with Jasper ever since.
Mary and Randall are American nomadic vampires.
The European Nomads
Joe Anderson (“The Crazies,” “Across the Universe”) as Alistair
A nomadic vampire from England, Alistair has a misanthropic, brooding personality and a deep mistrust of all authority. Although he counts Carlisle as his closest acquaintance, he doesn’t visit more than once a century.
