6 year old actress Rachel St. Gelais was rumored to be playing the youngest version of Renesmee Cullen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part II.
We finally got confirmation from Rachel’s “Family in Film” ’s twitter. Rachel is in Louisiana! They Tweeted “We made it!” & later “Baton Rouge Main Street Market with Rachel St. Gelais.”
This is the confirmation that Rachel is in Baton Rouge to film her scenes as little Nessie.
Remember CGI effects will be used on Rachel’s face, so that we’ll see Rachel’s body mixed with Mackenzie Foy’s face. These CGI effects are necessary to show Renesmee’s fast growing. The following weeks will be exclusively dedicated to shoot Renesmee’s CGI scenes with the green screen.
