Eclipse Casting for Riley, Seth and Leah Underway

E!Online reports:
Casting for the third Twilight movie has begun.

We got our hands on a casting notice for at least three characters in Eclipse.

Find out just what director David Slade is looking for. However, we must warn you that there are a few spoilers…

Riley "is a handsome, blond, clean-cut college boy who falls victim to Victoria," the notice reads. He's in his early to mid 20s and "plays an integral role in Victoria's attempt to murder Bella Swan."

There are two more members of the Quileute tribe and La Push wolf pack in Eclipse. Like New Moon, they are looking for Native American or First Nations actors to fill the roles.

"Seth Clearwater is a "tall, gangly-limbed boy with a huge, happy grin," the notice reads. "Seth idolizes Jacob."

Seth's big sister is 19-year-old Leah Clearwater and the only female member of La Push: "She is tall and slender with beautiful skin and short cropped black hair. She would be considered gorgeous if not for the perpetual scowl she carries due to a broken heart and her anger issues."
How exciting! Thanks, Dilia!


  1. Leah cropped her hair?
    I don't remember that.

  2. Does anyone know where and when casting is taking place?

  3. yes everyone in the pack crop their hair because of the fur or something lol

  5. I heard Chaning Tatum was being looked at for Riley...?

  6. sage galesi looks the part of leah.

  7. wow!That fast and that soon?So kewl!!!!Cant wait.Isn't Leah and Seth in the 3rd book New Moon?

  8. SETH!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!
    My favorite wolf on screen!!!!

    *does a happy dance*

    They better include his friendship with Edward or will personally kick their asses all the way to Forks!!



  9. Melissa Rossenburg had suggested that she'd like Chaning Tatum in the role of Riley. But she doesn't seem to get the book or the story right. He's too old and doesn't seem naive enough to play riley. In my opinion.

  10. Nicole Lee Smith for Leah Clearwater!
    Gorgeous, Native American (actually from Washington State!), and sassy.
    She was rumored for Emily but maybe they're holding out to give her a bigger role...?

  11. i agree with the Nicole Lee Smith idea for leah. look at her! she screams "leah".

  12. I too agree, Nicole Lee Smith is my first choice for Leah!!! Hopefully the casting directors agree!

  13. Leah is supposed to be "exotic looking" with "almond shaped eyes" and though not outright stated, should obviously be BROWN eyes...not just someone with contacts...IMO...

    And sorry to everyone who wants all the "little" girls and young women who are 5'2" (such as Q)..

    Just because she's the "only one" people may know of Indigenous ancestry and she's a great person, doesn't make her right for the role...her next role will be what is meant for her, just like all of us in life

  14. My vote is for Sara Tomko to play Leah Clearwater. Sara ROCKS! I saw this youtube video on her http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49v2zAHrZ5M that a fan made. Sara looks the part (she's Native American) and then I went to her website and watched her acting reels and she acts the part of Leah. Her website is www.saratomko.com

  15. Nicole Lee Smith is perfect, she is Native American AND exotic looking! I always read Leah as being smaller than the guys... Taylor L. is only 5'10" and Leah should be noticeably shorter than Jacob!

  16. Can a black person play leah?

  17. are there any black teen girls in breaking dawn? If there are give a brief description please?

  18. well bella is supposed to have brown eyes and kristen stewart's eyes are green so she wears contacts...lol. anybody can, it's the movies, it will look totally natural. i have looked at all of these other actresses and nicole lee smith is still my pick!

  19. i want tyler posey to be seth!!! he would be so perfect!!!
